The Innovation For Jobs Story

I have the pleasure of helping out at i4j with David Nordfors, Chally Grundwag and friend and mentor Ferose VR.

If you are new to it, i4j — short for Innovation for Jobs — was co-founded by Vint Cerf and David Nordfors. The goal is to disrupt the current employment system towards a people centered economy. Read more about it here.


Ferose recently asked me to create a comic strip , reproduced here, telling the i4j story, for an upcoming paper and book. Both are under peer review.

In the next few months, I will post links to the paper and book as well. Be sure to check those out. While I cannot say much as yet, I can say one word: revolutionary. For now, I hope you enjoy this short I4J story.
