What do you think Haraway et al. would make of this: http://www.communistrobot.com/viewblog.php?id=591?
Stuff like this simply affirms my quasi-Harawayan position that the re-imagining of political ontology (by way, perhaps, of the cyborg, though we're certainly not limited to this metaphor) is more than just an idle, "academic" - in the pejorative sense of this term - enterprise. The cyborg is important precisely because, as a discursive building block of affinity-based politics, it directly counteracts the frighteningly militaristic undercurrent of cyborgization-left-un-(properly)-theorized. Technologization of the body, the world, romantic relationships (http://machinist.salon.com/feature/2007/11/29/robot_love/) is already happening. If we don't imagine a new politics to go along with it, well ... I think the clip above speaks for itself.
