He is writing a book on those questions, entitled Rethinking the Future of Work: Law, Technology, and Economic Citizenship (under contract with MIT University Press). In addition to his law review publications, he has recently written for the Boston Review, the Washington Post Outlook, Onlabor.org, and ACSblog, the blog of the American Constitution Society.
