This third volume of essays in tactical media (following The Electronic Disturbance and Electronic Civil Disobedience) traces the developing topographies of digital intervention. Indicating that no cultural bunker is ever fully secure, the CAE show the possibilities of trespass, unleashing semiotic shocks that collectively could negate the rising intensity of authoritarian culture. Topics include contestational robotics, the financial advantages of anti-copyright, recombinant theater-as-resistance, and the possible roles of children as tactical media participants. Chapters in this new volume include "Electronic Civil Disobedience and the Public Sphere," "The Mythology of Terrorism on the Net," "The Promissory Rhetoric of Biotechnology," "Observations on Collective Cultural Action," "Recombinant Theater and Digital Resistance," "Contestational Robotics," "Children as Tactical Media Participants," and "The Financial Advantages of Anti-Copyright."
