Dan Pink and Free Agent Nation

Dan Pink has interviewed hundreds of independent professionals, contract workers, soloists and every other kind of non-employee worker for his forthcoming book, Free Agent Nation: How America's New Independent Workers are Transforming How We Live (Warner Books, Spring 2001). A successful free agent himself, Dan's articles about Free Agency and the New Economy have appeared in such diverse publications as Fast Company, The New York Times, The Washington Post and The New Republic.

In a former life, Dan was Vice President Al Gore's chief speechwriter. (During our recent interview of Dan, we could readily see why the casting directors of network television's The West Wing chose Rob Lowe for a character strikingly similar to Dan. ;-)

Visit Dan's Free Agent Nation website for a growing cache of excellent Free Agent commentary and resources. In particular, you might find these thoughts from free agents about the Free Agent Work Ethic interesting as well as helpful in understanding the emerging independent workforce.

For an especially insightful preview of Dan's forthcoming book read this provocative and insightful draft chapter, How Did it Happen?: The Four Ingredients of Free Agency, from his forthcoming book. And if you are interested in some of what Dan has to say about nanocorps, check out this quote from his upcoming book and read this section of our interview.
