[...] the important element is that the capitalist class owns the platform, not necessarily that it produces a physical product [...]

  • ad platforms (Google, FB) that analyse user data to sell ad space
  • cloud platforms (AWS, Salesforce) that own the hardware and software and charge subscription fees based on usage
  • industrial platforms (GE, Siemens), for making manufacturing more internet-connected and thus more efficient (and cheaper)
  • product platforms (Rolls Royce, Spotify) turning traditional goods into service, collecting rents/subscription fees
  • lean platforms (Uber, Airbnb) that don't own any assets

(Amazon fits basically all of the categories, with its different products)
