In the tradition of "hac(k)tivist," "slac(k)tivist," etc.:

"I thought, forget the rock opera, forget the bombast, the only thing
I would be singing today is the facts," Bono proclaimed at his TED
talk yesterday, "For I have truly embraced my inner nerd. So, exit the
rock star. Enter the evidence activist. The 'factivist.'"
