REMEMBER: INFORMATION = WEALTH GET RICH FAST IN THE INFORMATION ECONOMY Ever since William Gibson strapped on his mirror shades and waxed lyrical - if somewhat woozily that "cyberspace" was a "consensual hallucination" net theory has descended into an endless elaboration of giddy utopian rhetoric: Cyberspace as a "smooth space" of interstitial nomadic movement and fluid subjectivity. Cyberspace as a mythic arena lucid with theoretical possibilities for economic empowerment. Born-again McLuhanists envisioned an online community where people could realise control over their consumer choices. A shift from a culture of mass production and mass mediation to one of customised knowledge and demassified engagement, not to mention flexible production for a fast-changing market. American dreamers like Esther Dyson et al almost creamed their pomo-panties over the possibilities: “In technology, economics, and the politics of nations, wealth - in the form of physical resources - has been losing value and significance. The powers of mind are everywhere ascendant over the brute force of things.” Global villagists saw restrictive trade agreements crumble in favour of a vast informational exchange. Nicholas Negroponte ‘s let-‘em-eat-cake solution to poverty and homelessness was almost beautifully simple: give each homeless person a laptop computer! Welcome to the information economy, where digital code supplants money as the ultimate medium of exchange. Where the proliferation of simulacra replaces the production of tangible commodities and where high capitalism finally meets a smashing – all be it virtual - demise at the hands of academics armed with kooky code cutters and virtual conferences… In the information economy, economic inequality has miraculously vanished as the digital divide between wealth and poverty grows - so wide that the “third world” has slipped off the screen and out of our view. With so many bytes of information, no one ever starves in cyberspace. Homeless? For the small price of a few banner ads Geocities will let you build your homepage for free. Your email address is worth more than your self-esteem. Addiction isn't a social liability; your daily digital fix is the very lifeblood of the virtual class.
