The service economy never looked so good

My column in last week's National Post analyzed Inc. Magazine’s recent list of Top 30 Entrepreneurs Under 30, to find out how this list of "America's Coolest Entrepreneurs" hints at the future of business.

The list consists almost entirely of Web-based services - think FourSquare, RedLaser ("Impossibly accurate barcode scanning"), Sprouter and CrowdFlower ("Labor on Demand") that connect people in new ways to create innovative information products, social games, strategic communities and business solutions.

“Crowd-sourcing, community, databases, social entrepreneurship: The future, it seems, is all about sharing. The service economy has never looked so good.”
