I’m not as plugged into the current autonomist marxism stuff as I used to be, in large part because I find post-operaismo annoying and, relatedly, I find the relative lack of attention to operaismo’s earlier work offputting, since that early work seems to me very powerful. In any case, Archive Archie has two good posts on the influence of Italian marxism on Big Flame. Here and here.

I’d be very interested to see Mike write up a piece on the relationship between Sojourner Truth Organization and the Italian stuff. (He said some in the comments here a while back. See here for a piece on Big Flame and STO.) I know Don Hamerquist, ex-STO, still references Negri in a serious way today from what I’ve read of his stuff (and I’d love to read more).
