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.
The Vectorialist Class — e-flux
Finance finds itself joined by other kinds of control through information, whether through the control of patents, copyrights, and brands, the control of supply chains through logistics, the control of the spatial deployment of resources through GIS, or most recently through control of access to information about the shifting landscape of people and things by making all things addressable.
