This kind of informal employment may, for example, include making money out of your car by participating in a smart network like Uber. This is the way things are, and as with the first industrial revolution in the 19th century, there’s no turning back the clock.

As I mentioned in Flagwatching, our dependency on this technology has elevated cybercrime and cyberterrorism to one of the greatest threats on Earth. The attack in May on 200 000 institutions in 150 countries showed how vulnerable the world is to dedicated hackers.
