A better description might be “land developer” a company that buys land and seeks to resell it with a 20% margin for its shareholders.

“The media we use everyday have been described as immaterial, cognitive, friction-free and weightless but they are not so. Manufacturing, using and recycling digital media involve immense quantities of materials and energy.
