This course is aimed at facilitating the understanding – with a view to further application in practice – of the economic grounds of a fastly developing kind of business-not-as-usual: producing, exchanging and exploiting digital information within market and extra-market contexts. Dealt with as a resuorce, as well as a commodity, information is unlike any others. Information is abundant and its amount is rocketing, while classical resourses are scarce and, many of them, also exhaustible. Information is shareable and thus, by contrast to tangible goods, can be given away while still keeping it.

Digital technologies are powering the dynamics of information and allow for certain of its features to reach their extreme: infinte malleability, limitless reproducibility, near-to-zero cost of copying and storing, instant propagation and acessibility through networks. As such, disruptive business models and practices emerge, e.g. pricing at zero, freemium, monetisation of attention  etc. This course proposes an intellectual journey across this landscape; it adopts an out-of-the-box economic way of thinking, with a view to sheding light on the whats, the whys and the hows of doing new things in new ways in the thrilling realm of the information business.
