(1) How does Wark apply a Marxist model to the information age?  What is his view on intellectual property law? Do you agree with his point of view?

(2) How does Wark define a" hacker"? Is the term used too broadly? Do you accept Wark's idea of "hackers" as a class? Who are the vectorialists?
(3) What is the objective of the hacker? What is the main interest of the hacker class? Why is freedom of information a good thing?

(4) Wark never uses the term "open source", but his arguments in favor for free information sound a lot like those of open source software developers.  Are open source developers "hackers"?
