It was very nice to meet all of you in Brussels. I apologize I had to run off to Amsterdam, this was extremely quick!
If you are interested in discussing gig issues further with me, I have started a while ago a WhatsApp channel for gig workers interested to use data rights for advocacy (and friendly supports in civil society). That channel is at https://chat.whatsapp.com/ETctYsvTFTeHEIKlblPz8p (English, French, whatever welcome). My aim there is to empower individuals around personal data, and enable them to form the collectives they choose. This means I am not focused on building a common database of personal data or something like that (at least not at the moment), but rather on *explaining* rights, how to use them for maximum leverage, and then *explaining* how to analyse the data and how to use it to maximize advocacy goals.
I am also board member of MyData Global. I invite you to join their Slack workspace, *especially the #gig-work channel* (join at https://mydata.org/slack/ ). This is a very good place to find local support around data, through our network of hubs ( https://mydata.org/hubs/ ).
Thanks for reading!
