"OK, this is my favorite story right now," says Horowitz. "There's this guy in rural Italy, obsessed with math, right?" She's talking about a book by Murray D. Lincoln, a founder of Nationwide Insurance and a champion of farm cooperatives (the kind of light reading she picks up for fun). "Then one day he shows a famous mathematician what he's been working on all this time. The mathematician's like, 'Oh. Yeah. You invented calculus.'"

Someone smart had figured it out before him. The models were already there.

You can easily tell that the Freelancers Union is better than the government alternatives ... just notice that the government had to threaten to imprison people to get them to participate in its programs, and that even under this threat of violence, many of us refuse to participate   The FU, however, does not have guns to force you to use (or pay for) it's services ... it has to provide a service that people want, or nobody will pay!
