Dérive Media

"One of the basic situationist practices is the dérive, a technique of rapid passage through varied ambiences. Dérives involve playful-constructive behavior and awareness of psychogeographical effects, and are thus quite different from the classic notions of journey or stroll." - Bureau of Public Secrets
At first glance, one would think that the Situationist dérive was made for moblogging. But some seem to think that locative media art could be positioning itself as somewhat predictable performance art spectacle, i.e. could just be more fodder for the military-entertainment complex to churn into its ongoing bomb rationale. Do they have a point?
