Maybe the lubricating effects of social media on organizing people against their own repression can countervail some of its incorporating effects within communicative capitalism. I'm rediscovering the joy of organizing my union at the worksite level which is at odds with what I believe is my Union's dependency on traditional outlets for activism (kowtowing to corporate democrats, astro-turfy actions the appear to be more 'coalitions of the willing' than an expression of deep democracy). Although, this last legislative session my Union experimented with civil disobedience which energized the membership in a more real way. Whether a break from corporate politicians will be made remains to be seen, in the meantime, I'm focusing at the worksite level where actions must originate. Jodi, speaking of innovation and experimentation you should consider doing an interview with Douglas Lain who has an innovative podcast called Diet Soap.
