Rajeev Peshawaria defines the concept of open source, a term which refers to software architecture that is open and free for anyone to upgrade it. He talks about why he borrowed the term to identify our current time where everything is open thanks to social media and the Internet. According to Peshawaria, it is possible that Google and Facebook may know you better than you know yourself. He characterizes what he calls the open source era as a time when people are empowered, and leaders are completely exposed. He discusses how in this environment it is essential to treat fulltime employees differently than in previous decades. Peshawaria provides examples of how the gig economy has changed the workplace.
