<nettime> Fwd: Class composition in black economies and the micro-contract e-lance phenomenon - network economies... ?


Class composition in black economies. e-lancing and txting refugee workers...

Hello, I have been thinking about work-type trends, what I have
clumsily tagged as
http://delicious.com/dr.woooo/micro-contracts-beyond-temping

The e-lancing phenomenon, jobs like refugees being texting services
for payment per txt and also bidding for 1hr assignments or tasks put
this way on a website that specializes in using poor workers in parts
of the world to organize jetsetters diaries or edit paragraphs of
documents etc –

“  HITs - Human Intelligence Tasks - are individual tasks that you
work on. Find HITs now.

 ”

I’m curious if anyone has written class compositionist type stuff on
the other similar types of work and perhaps more interesting black
economy in ‘networked capitalism ‘ ie. The class make up and nature of
spammers, virus writers, paid hackers and the class make up and nature
of work in the drug economy ( I heard someone writes on
drug-cartels/dealing as another form of work in mexico ? )

Any pointers to these enquiries or thoughts ?
