dc.description.abstractWhen we think about information as power, we usually think about individuals, groups, and nations using information and information goods as a resource that helps them gain advantages over others. In this essay, however, I am interested in how the globalized information networks create new forms of power that transcend people's conscious design. Digital information technologies, I shall argue, enmesh individuals, groups, and nations in proliferating networks of power which they neither fully understand nor fully control, and which, in fact, are controlled by no one in particular.
