Hi! I'd like to add my two cents:

Jordan, Tim (2002). Activism! Direct Action, Hactivism and the Future of
Society. London: Reaktion Books.

Langman, Lauren, & Morris, Douglas (2002). Internet mediation: A theory of
alternative globalization movements. In M. Gurstein & S. Finquelievich
(eds.), Proceedings of the 1st International Workshop on Community
Informatics. Montreal, Canada, October 8, 2002.

McCaughey, Matha, & Ayers, Michael D. (eds.) (2003). Cyberactivism. Online
Activism in Theory and Practice. New York & London: Routledge.

Morris, Douglas, & Langman, Lauren (2002). Networks of dissent: A typology
of social movements in a global age. In M. Gurstein & S. Finquelievich
(eds.), Proceedings of the 1st International Workshop on Community
Informatics. Montreal, Canada, October 8, 2002.

Myers, Daniel J. (???). Social activism through computer networks. [Online]

Samuel, Alexandra (???). Decoding hactivism: Purpose, method, and identity
in a new social movement. [Online]

Samuel, Alexandra (???). Digital disobedience: Hactivism in political
context. [Online]

I think Alexandra has more papers on the topic: she might want to give us
more info.

Cheers,

--Moses
