Possibly, information goods have always existed. New waves of information technologies (alphabet, paper, printing press, TV, computers) have emphasized those goods' peculiarities: Walter Benjamin wrote about "The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction" already in 1936 BUT the distinction between information and support has never been so evident since Napster.||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Copyright (published version):||2015 the Author||Keywords:||Money; Bitcoin; Information infrastructures||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed||Conference Details:||Introduction to 'Gaming Money' Workshop, University College Dublin, Dublin, Ireland, 18 May, 2015|
