Вопрос об изменениях природы человеческого труда в информационную эпоху остаётся спорным [see: 1]. Компьютерный труд пытаются охарактеризовать как современную форму всеобщего труда, возникновение которого было замечено еще К. Марксом [see: 2]. Тем не менее вопрос о природе труда в информационную эпоху ещё далек от своего решения, а его «…проявления творческого потенциала человека чрезвычайно разнообразны» [3, p. 19].
