Summary Significant popular and policy attention over the last decade has come to be concerned with the changing notions of the future and the 'new' within the digital information economy and their implications for how young people make a life. I argue that the abstraction of the traditional forms of information and labour have emerged as a key imperative of popular and policy understandings of young people's lives. The chapter traces what McKenzie Wark (2004) calls the 'hacker class' to explore how traditional notions of labour market participation are being abstracted in ways that expose young people to new forms of governance and intervention.
