But the punk atttitude toward the barcode seemed to be more about being labeled and tracked – and not wanting that control to exist in the systems they rejected. I am not sure if any of the listed items you mention have that kind of control aspect to them, although they enable other systems that do. Note that I do not want to quantify the types of things that punks should rail against – that would be very un-punk.

Wed, 07 Jan 2009 22:19:08 +0000http://designnotes.info/?p=1631#comment-99602When I was a young man and was in somewhere in the punk / hardcore scene there was a very vocal and self-righteous backlash against putting barcodes on records (ha!), cds or your zine. It was seen as a sellout move because it meant your stuff was going to be sold in a store owned by the 'corporate machine' and was considered the opposite of being punk. I never felt too strongly about it, but if barcodes go away, even in this little way, what will future punks have to be angry at?
