Manufacturing Consent

"The privileged realm of electronic space controls the physical logistics of manufacture, since the release of raw materials and manufactured goods requires electronic consent and direction." — Critical Art Ensemble, The Electronic Disturbance, p.17 (via Wark's Hacker Manifesto)

With the false start mechanism (gun+blocks+clock+circuitry+camera) used in the 100-metre sprint and races in other high performance sports, we also see the requisite of electronic consent in order for the race "production" or "manufacture" to begin.
