Towards the end of the discussion Jennifer Fulwiler says (paraphrasing): a couple of generations ago people had to "fall on their sword" get a job and support their family, and now we have the Internet and all sorts of flexibility to work differently and support our families. Hello! That's a typical (upper) middle class version of current society. A couple of generations ago 50% of manufacturing labor was unionized, had (by comparison to today) steady employment, and benefits. Today: no union, no benefits, and short-term 20-hour service jobs for a /large/ fraction of the population. The Internet is of no help when your choice is being a stock clerk at Target or a cashier at Walmart -- both at less than $15/hour.
