Review quote

McKenzie Wark's "A Hacker Manifesto" might also be called, without too much violence to its argument, "The Communist Manifesto 2.0". In essence, it's an attempt to update the core of Marxist theory for that relatively novel set of historical circumstances known as the information age.--Julian Dibbell, Author Of "play Money: Diary Of A Dubious Proposition"
