Fired up Tiny Tiny RSS on our instance of Sandstorm. Going to try to use that as my primary RSS reader for the next month and see if I can break away from Feedly.

We're entering the era of the peer-to-peer gig economy: Uber, Air BnB, etc. New economic models mean some stand to make a lot of money, while those who do the actual work stand to lose a lot through labour exploitation (reports of Uber drivers making less than minimum wage, for example).

This is one of the reasons I have lately become more interested in the co-op movement, where workers own the platforms and share in the profits. youtube.com/watch?v=w3qt04mYIn
