A Hacker Manifesto

Information, like land or capital, becomes a form of prop- erty monopolized by a class, a class of vectoralists, so named because they control the vectors along which infor- mation is abstracted, just as capitalists control the material means with which goods are produced, and pastoralists the land with which food is produced. This information, once the collective property of the productive classes—the work- ing and farming classes considered together—becomes the property of yet another appropriating class.
