00:05:33 Carin-Isabel Knoop: Danish border village still hot — 37 C RIDICULOUSLY HOT is right! 22 C is usual HEAT here…

00:06:12 Carin-Isabel Knoop: You have AC… (hopefully). We need an AC trading platform.
00:06:15 Arthur Ransier: Heat index is around 100 F (38 C) at the beach in Delaware, USA
00:06:27 Link: Oh yes, I have 2 AC units. lol
00:06:28 Arthur Ransier: And indeed, I’ve got air conditioning!
00:06:37 Link: That’s hot for DE
00:14:30 Vijay Jonnalagadda: Hey John!

00:26:56 James Wright: Would love to connect, if we’re not already : ) ! https://www.linkedin.com/in/jameswrightesq/
00:31:36 Link: What were those 5 again?
00:32:01 John Healy: here’s the paper… https://www.weforum.org/whitepapers/the-good-work-framework-a-new-business-agenda-for-the-future-of-work/
00:32:09 Link: Thank you John
00:35:18 Link: This is really interesting. We see the same in the world of “DEI”, everyone has a framework and none of them are consistent and many conflict.
00:36:58 Dr. Rochelle Haynes, Crowd Potential: Agreed!
00:39:35 Link: So better vetting on the front end?
00:42:36 Alan Korpady: What impact, if any, does the apparent drop in real wages?
00:43:20 Dr. Rochelle Haynes, Crowd Potential: Many companies still don’t fully appreciate the impact of the metaverse on the way we work and manage
00:43:22 Link: Once we overcome the sheer weight of the VR headsets and convert to lightweight glasses while also making them affordable, the Meta world will explode
00:43:24 James Wright: The announcement from the The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) two days ago that Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs) is now an official Web standard (v1.0) is a hugely significant step in the Open Talent space and the link to web3 / metaverse https://www.w3.org/2022/07/pressrelease-did-rec.html.en
00:46:03 Ilyse Shuster-Frohman: How does enterprise red tape impact the IC market and will their needs get more or less stringent? Of course it all provides the opposite of a seamless working environment for the worker and their TA partners. How do we comply but also create less friction in the process?
00:46:10 John Healy: “organize and scale the voice”…so important!
00:51:25 Ilyse Shuster-Frohman: Amen and thank you!
00:51:33 Carin-Isabel Knoop: ILO opinion from 2021 is worth looking at: https://www.ilo.org/global/research/global-reports/weso/2021/lang–en/index.htm
00:52:39 Dr. Rochelle Haynes, Crowd Potential: And we have seen this in the pas. Attempting to fix the problem with regulation that has not been informed by the evolving workforce
00:52:48 James Wright: Is the growing Digital Divide a part of the discussions, as this I fear is a significant and growing area of inequality ?
00:56:25 Carin-Isabel Knoop: Yes and the weekend is a remnant of old times and religious constraints. Yet most companies work Mon-Fri…
00:56:40 Bradley Cooper: @James Wright the digital divide is something that is very important to me with-in our industry, 96% of our employees are employed in roles that cannot be digitized and most of the conversation is focused on the 40% (in the U.S. roughly) of roles that are or can be digitized, how do we make the discussion inclusive to those who don’t have a choice to digitize.
00:59:01 Alan Korpady: Wonderful session. Thanks to all.
00:59:17 James Wright: One of the barriers to entry, particularly in rural and developing countries, is access to the internet. Collaborations such as the one between Qualcomm, Thales and Ericsson could really help reduce this particular barrier to entry – https://www.eenewswireless.com/en/ericsson-qualcomm-and-thales-to-create-5g-ntn/
00:59:44 Mark Hannant: +1 James
00:59:53 Arthur Ransier: James are you involved with NDIA? https://www.digitalinclusion.org/
01:00:06 Link: YES! another rural connectivity advocate! Thank you James!
01:01:14 James Wright: @arthur, No I’m not but I REALLY want to be!! Thanks for the headsup!
01:01:53 Vijay Jonnalagadda: Hey Bettina, for the upcoming ILO how is end consumer voice showing up? Rationale: platform work is booming because some of the services rendered by platform drive disintermediation, ergo ease of consumption and lower cost. Wearing the hat of end-consumer, I’d like the services to become sustainable and i don’t mind paying a few more dollars if I know the workers engaged on the platform have the right kind of safety network…
01:03:07 CTW: This call recording will be on the CTW site w/in the next 24 hours. Thank you Bettina!
01:03:08 Carin-Isabel Knoop: Great point — our advocacy team focuses time thinking about this as does the certification workstream — a “fair trade” label for platforms. we dont want to replicate what we regret in the “old system” to the new one
01:03:35 Mark Hannant: Great call. Thanks all
01:03:47 Vijay Jonnalagadda: Superb discussions. Love it
01:03:54 Dr. Rochelle Haynes, Crowd Potential: Great session
01:03:55 James Wright: I have SO missed these calls!! Thank you!!
01:03:55 Google Pixel 6: thank you John and Bettina!
01:03:56 Bradley Cooper: Thank you and great to meet everyone. Look forward to the next one.
01:03:57 Link: GREAT CALL TODAY! So informative. Thank you Bettina
