Alex Lifschitz  

Co-Founder of Crash Override

Game developer Zoe Quinn was the first target of what became known as Gamergate last year, a hate campaign waged by anonymous Internet users on women in the video-game and tech communities. The rape and death threats got so bad that she was forced to flee her home. During the ordeal, Quinn learned a lot about dealing with cybermobs. So in January, she and her boyfriend, Alex Lifschitz, launched Crash Override, a volunteer group that offers free advice to victims of online harassment and refers them to experts in law, information security, PR, and law enforcement. "When [online abuse] gets to a certain point, it changes your life irrevocably in a way people don’t understand," says Quinn. "Sometimes all people need is to know that somebody gets it."
