Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I would not say the Internet creates unsure jobs per se, rather that a lot of unsure jobs are created now. Telephone sales operators often get payed per sale, giving low average salaries (though some can net high sales), previously secure jobs are being privatised and unpaid internships being introduced as stepping-stones in more careers.

In a way there is a similarity with how industrial jobs got started with unsafe working conditions and low payment. It also went hand in hand with enclosure and population increase that undermined the position of the peasants.
