The Shut-In Economy

https://medium.com/matter/the-shut-in-economy-ec3ec1294816

A great read that captures and more calmly explains my knee-jerk reaction against a lot of online “convenience” services. Are we really doing bigger and better things with the time that these services free up for us? I’m also concerned about the effect of these services on widening income inequality.

And I found this description funny: “The messengers do talk. They end up asking each other which apps they work for: Postmates. Seamless. EAT24. GrubHub. Safeway.com.” What app do you work for? Not “what company”.
