Zoe Quinn knows what it's like to be lied about, harassed and generally made a prop in other people's angry inner lives. But she also knows what it's like to have been one of the internet's useful idiots—and how to build something powerful in response to the online mob. In her XOXO speech from September, she talked about providing targeted individuals with the means to unfuck their situation, but also about what the internet could be—should be—after years of growing failure.
Zoe Quinn continued to encourage new voices in indie game development with learning resources like Sorting Hat and Games Are For Everyone, and launched Crash Override, a volunteer-run task force for victims and targets of online mob hatred.
Recorded in September 2015 at XOXO, an experimental festival celebrating independently produced art and technology in Portland, Oregon.
