was there *anything* interesting or useful in this? or, for that matter, even remotely deleuzian about it? it mostly sounded like the lock, stock and barrel schlock that emanates from third-rate wankademics who, for various reasons, have yet to notice the 80s are over--and, with them, gone is the time for mannered bullshit like 'The punctual, hierarchical, command-based exercise of power enabled by horizontal mass-media flows of necromantic not-doing.'
