This is week 2 of George Siemens and David Wiley's Open Education course and this week asks the question, "How did we get here?" Jenny Mackness offers a lucid discussion of the past and its issues as well as linking to some relevant posts by others. Richard Coyne captures the sharing dilemma: The darkest side of this sharing narrative is that consumers and the short-term contracted labour force are fed the idea that they are participating in a new democratised economic order. The sharing economy is just part of a sales pitch, and a way of dressing up inequities and dodgy business practices."
