Transgressing between consumption and production: materialistic outlook on the digital labour of prosumers
AbstractThis article explores the subject of unpaid digital labour on the Internet. Often presented as co-creation or prodsing the work of that kind is the matter of much controversy. The article tries to critically refer to the most popular concepts, reaches out to the authors using the Marxian dictionary, detail their arguments, and finally propose their own typology. The text treats the hypothesis about the vanishing boundaries between production and consumption as unprofitable. The distinction between personal and private property and the use and exchange value are highlighted to precisely define the place of quasiwork in the social division of labour.
