GIS: Commercialization of Public Information
Volume 4, Number 3, 2011

GIS is both a resource and a commodity
"Resources are increasingly enclosing the public domain of information resources and moving into the hands of a few companies who buy and sell GIS data for significant private profit."
GIS, participatory data creation, and its privatization
"the public is contributing resources and labor to the accumulation strategies of the largest GIS companies by allowing the move of public assets to private companies. This is also happening through the utilization of free and nearly free mapping tools that allow large companies to datamine and sell intelligence about web-based activities, often without the knowledge of users."

"The failure of many of these new software and analyses in the hand of new, excited scholars and hackers and other excitable folks means that their meaning is often…opaque. Oh, let’s be honest, opaque is being polite . . . I want to turn your attention to the algorithms within and how they mask meanings in many ways"
