[liberationtech] Frei PiratenPartei

Considering that the Internet has at "de-facto saturation point" in
the US, @80%+- penetration according to the "Internet statistics
body"or something like that, and that there is a de-facto CARTEL in
access, with really scary stuff happening at the Congress level
regarding access, censorship, and control, I would say YES!

In the US politics are either **very local** or **national**. The
**very local** aspect is really underdeveloped, and that is where
regular people live: the loci of predatory Telcos, BIG-EYE government,
and BIG-DATA marketing conglomerates, both representing an interesting
mixture of "Discipline Societies" and "Control Societies", as depicted
in Gilles Deleuze's "Post-scriptum sur les sociétés de contrôle"

I take the opportunity to put in a very interesting link about the latter..

Courtesy of "Liquid Theory TV":
Liquid Theory TV is a collaboration between Clare Birchall, Gary Hall
and Peter Woodbridge designed to develop a series of IPTV programmes.
(IPTV, in its broadest sense, stands for all those technologies which
use computer networks to deliver audio-visual programming.) The idea
behind the Liquid Theory TV project is to experiment with IPTVs
potential for providing new ways of communicating intellectual ideas,
easily and cheaply, both inside and outside of the university. We want
to do so not so much in an effort to have an impact outside of the
academy, be it economic, social or cultural; nor to connect with an
increasingly media-literate audience that books supposedly cannot, or
can no longer, reach. Rather we want to experiment with IPTV in order
to explore the potential for different effectivities that different
forms of communication have - to the extent of perhaps even leading us
to conceive of what we do as academics, writers, artists, media
theorists and philosophers differently (see Wise, 2006: 241).

The second episode in the series takes as its focus Gilles Deleuzes
short essay Postscript on the Societies of Control. While this episode
is being made available for the first time in an issue of Culture
Machine which has the theme of creative media; and while Liquid Theory
TV could be described as a creative project, to the extent it is
concerned with producing alternative, rival, or counter-desires to
those currently dominant within much of society (at its simplest, a
desire for philosophy or more broadly theory, rather than for the
creations of Richard Branson, Simon Cowell or Rupert Murdoch, say),
this does not mean that either the series, or this particular episode,
should be regarded simply as an attempt to perform Deleuzes
philosophy. The critical and interpretive aspects of scholarly work
remain important to us here, even if they are being undertaken in a
medium very different to the traditional academic journal article or
