Zoe Quinn Faces off Against Online Hate

Adrian Liang on September 28, 2017

Crash OverrideIt's been a few years since #gamergate tore into Zoe Quinn's life, with strangers online hoping she'd kill herself and others sending death threats to her family. But it's safe to say that online vitriol has, if anything, increased since then. 

It's easy to suggest, "Well, just stay off the Internet." But as Quinn points out, that's a tough call to make for people whose business is on the Internet, and the actions of online abuse frequently spill out into offline life. 

We spoke with Quinn about her new book, Crash Override, her Gamergate experience, trolling versus abuse, and how individuals can take a clear-eyed look at whether they are unwittingly adding to online bile.
