Many of these people are highly skilled. Conveniently, there are many startups in the D.C. area who need a highly-skilled person with a few hours on his or her hands. And it was this pairing of needs that inspired Tom Clark to create a Google spreadsheet, on which those looking for work and those looking for workers could be matched.

Last week, Clark built and released the Shutdown Work Board, which consists of one page of instructions, one page where employers can post work, and one page for workers to post their qualifications. As the front page warns, "There is NO vetting process for the types of positions/projects listed here and there is NO vetting process for the candidates seeking temporary work." In other words: This is just a platform—from here it's up to you.


fascinating how quickly communities come together. It's a whole new view on "workforce mobility." Or "Freelance Nation". In either case, I hope these links will be helpful.
