At the begining of 2019, I started a few lists on subjects related to working online. Web-publishing is one of those fundamental required skills for most any type of work online. As a writer, I quickly realized that I’d be better off creating content for my own websites, than selling it to someone who intended to make a lot more money with it than they would pay me.

Web-work.tools is where I save information for my own personal reference, and anyone else who’s interested.

Digital Transformation for the Commons

Since the explosion of the web, traditional enterprise has found itself continually under fire. Every executive worth their salt knows that anyone with an internet connection has the potential to decimate their entire industry, with some new disintermediating product or service.

Recall, that some of the largest corporations existing today were built in a garage.

The enterprise has considerable resources devoted to undergoing their own digital transformation, to distrupt their own business models before someone else does it for them.

Now, the independent would-be worker of the web isn’t likely to know all of this. When I began, all I knew is that it’s clearly possible to work online, not only that, it’s practically inevitable.

Today there is an endless array of useful tools and apps that you and I can learn to create value with. You don’t need money, you just need time, a computer and an internet connection.
