For anyone who's at least looked at Steve Jackson Games' GURPS Transhuman Space RPG, there's an important future ideology named infosocialism.
The possibility of infosocialism becoming an actual form of gov't seems unlikely- an possible policy or meme, on the other hand, may exist in popularity.
If infosocialism existed side by side of regular liberalist democracy, companies would still be capitalistic and governments still exist (seeing as everyone can make drugs from free recipies, bad medicine could become a problem for instance).
