Fact of Fiction:
I'm quite familiar with the roots of activist hacking, but learned a lot about modern efforts from "Coding Democracy: How Hackers Are Disrupting Power, Surveillance, and Authoritarianism" by Maureen Webb.  Webb takes the time to dig deep and travels around the world and attends events like Chaos Computer Camp to interview the players behind the scenes, and the players behind them.  The book is conversational, historical, and predictive all at once and a worthwhile read.
