Abstract: The WikiLeaks revelations in my view became the symbol of the mainstreaming and popularization of digital activism in the public sphere and this is why I view this the start of a fourth phase in digital activism. WikiLeaks was in a sense a continuity for o nline collaborative communities, such as the FLOSS move ment, as was explained in the first chapter . I started thinking about how affect theory could contribute to the study of the first reactions to the WikiLeaks revelations when I was preparing a chapter for the edited volume we published with Adi Kunstman in 2012. I am reusing material from that chapter here (Karatzogianni, 2012). By using affect theory, which I explain in - depth in a theoretical section chapter four (4.4 The Affect problematique), I sough t to enrich cyberconflict theory beyond the identity, media representations, discourse, conflict analysis and resource mobilization elements I utilized in previous studies.
