Aliettes whole essay is inspiring. She's a better ranter than I am  
and it's not even her native tongue! Bravo!

I've used both the Détournement and the Dérive in my works. recently  
I've been working/ organizing an artist group called Artists  
Meeting-- http://artistsmeeting.org . We meet every three weeks and  
we also carry on conversations & schemes online. All of the members  
have jobs and are productive member of the creative class. What  
happens is to disrupt that inevitability we meet and produce various  
collaborative projects. The whole group is in the process of drifting  
through aesthetic situations. We are now planning a project that will  
utilize the Situationist process of, "Faire La Pause"

It must be noted that to combat hyper-capitalism and consumer culture  
is really difficult. The populist opposition is a return to religion  
which is a horrible choice.
