The Age of Fascism

'In the information economy, companies realize their money-making goal by trying to own information via patents, trademarks, copyrights, nondisclosure agreements, and other means. In fact, information is guarded to such an extent that when one visits an information-technology company, sometimes one cannot avoid the impression that all these locks protecting information make the building similar to a maximum-security prison' - Taken from 'The Hacker Ethic'

'Nobody thinks twice about a programmer who sleeps until dinnertime and works all night. How do you think the consulting field got so big in the early 90s? A vampire here, a vampire there; next thing you know, banking, mortgages, and techs are being run by us. - Daniel M Hoyt
