Hacktivism paper released

Inspired the by the latest Yes Men actions – see their parody websites for Haliiburton and the WTOAlexandra Samuel has decided to release the full text of her PhD disseration on Hacktivism and the Future of Political Participation.

Is this ever timely! The paper’s conclusion “pulls it all back together and reflects on how hacktivism has been wrongly conflated with cyberterrorism as part of of the post 9/11 age of anxiety.”

I can’t wait to read it. But at 284 pages, I might be better off reading the chapter summaries on her web site. Thanks so much for publishing this and reminding us of it’s continuing relevance, Alex!
