An article of interest for Paul A and other participants in this thread:

Eric Itzkin's  "How to Compete in the Perpetual Information Economy"


The section "Perpetual innovation economy" attempts to explain and
evaluate Marx's perspective, as well those of contemporary writers such as
Tessa Morris-Suzuki,  on value and automation.  Topics such as changing 
skill requirements, the shortening of the product cycle,  and the shifting
role of product and process innovations are also discussed.

If you are not familiar with it, another source of note is _Cutting Edge:  
Technology, Information Capitalism and Social Revolution edited by 
Jim Davis (who has participated in this thread), Thomas A Hirschl and 
Michael Stack.   For  description see  http://www.gocatgo.com/ce/cuttingedge.html 
and  http://www.gocatgo.com/ce/intro.html which is the "Introduction" to
 _Cutting Edge_.    Also note extracts in "IT Revolution Forum"  
http://sankalpa.tripod.com/future/s3itrev.html  and Michael Kenney's article 
"Value Creation in the Late Twentieth Century:  the Rise of the Knowledge Worker"  http://hcd.ucdavis.edu/faculty/kenney/valuecreation.html

Solidarity, Jerry
