Run TaskRabbit, run! What if there were no jobs anymore?

Whilst it’s a slightly tongue-in-cheek approach to all topics covered under such an opportunistic heading, with the point being to draw things to an extreme, it does stress some of the most obvious consequences of a transformation of how we work and organise ourselves, popularly lumped under the epitaph "the gig economy".
