When the staff-less shop is actually staffed by under-paid distant workers, we know the information technology revolution is a lot less 'new' than it appears.

Its the same old worker exploitation, just wearing different clothes & speaking a different dialect...

As I argued in my 2002 book on the Information Society, the info tech 'revolution' may change the quantitative character of capitalism but it leaves its underlying form & logic untouched.
