Recently, I had the pleasure of interviewing Trebor Scholz, Associate Professor for Culture & Media at the New School and author of the book Uber-Worked and Underpaid: How Workers Are Disrupting the Digital Economy (Polity, 2016). He is currently touring European cities to talk about platform cooperativism. Platform cooperativism, as he puts it, is « a way of joining the peer-to-peer and co-op movements with online labor markets while insisting on communal ownership and democratic governance. » I talked to him about this young movement, its rise, and the steps ahead.
