Guest: Gary Swart
Up until a month or so ago, Gary Swart led the largest online work marketplace company in oDesk. After helping complete the merger with his biggest rival, eLance, Gary is now becoming a venture capitalist.
We catch up with Gary to learn what he's observed about the world of online work and work marketplaces. We talk about the changing nature of work, how oDesk pivoted it its early days, and how the online work marketplace business looks today vs. a decade ago.
