You may find some rich materials if you look into the literature
associated with the "Information Age"  e.g. Bell, Schement and Curtis.
 Most of the earlier works are economic in nature but there are
definitely philosophical ideas underlying them, even if those ideas
aren't always explicitly acknowledged by the authors.

There may also be some ideas in the literature related to the creative
class (e.g. Florida, Brooks) but most of it is very shallow so I'd
avoid it unless you really get desperate or your work takes you
specifically in that direction.
