Empire and biopolitics

Someone has provided some useful notes on Chapter 1.2 of Hardt and Negri’s Empire. This is the chapter called “biopolitical production.”

Biopower is a form of power that regulates social life from its interior, following it, interpreting it, absorbing it, and rearticulating it. (23-24) Refers to situation where production and reproduction of life itself is at sake.

I wonder though if Hardt and Negri really get it right.
