cyber activism

Interesting article here about a guy who has taken a very different route to protesting the war and militarism, and providing a memorial for those who have died in it. Cyber activism at its best. From his website:

I am currently in the process of logging into the America’s Army online game to input all of the names of each of the over 2000 [now almost 3400] American service persons who have been killed in the Iraq conflict, utilizing the game’s instant texting feature. America’s Army is the free, downloadable first person shooter game that serves as a primary recruiting mechanism for the United States Army.

Great nonviolent direct action.
