This Will Be Hard

The Sovereign Individual

I’m going to begin reading the The Sovereign Individual again today, because I think work and the workplace will undergo a similar upheaval post-pandemic.

In many ways this book was prescient, and it remained relevant for far longer than it should have, given how much the internet changed in the transition from Geocities to Twitter and Facebook. I will be reading with an eye towards parallels, while seeking to avoid the Lincoln/Kennedy-secretary problem (my term for reading too much into a situation).
