The reappraisal of interventionist responses is necessarily ongoing, not least in the context of how social media have changed the face of the political process and the ways in which subjectivity is captured. The tactics of dissent have changed too. For instance, Seppukoo (2009), a recent hack of Facebook by Les Liens Invisibles, provided an example where users were able to commit virtual suicide in a ritualistic removal of their virtual identity. Virtual suicide stands as the stubborn refusal to operate under intolerable conditions of service and affirms the possibility of creative autonomy over work and life.
