Melissa Ryan is a US-based tech and politics expert; she has recently started a newsletter called Ctrl Alt Right Delete which is devoted to understanding how the far right operates online, and developing strategies to fight back. I really admire the approach Ryan is taking; she’s exploring, researching, asking questions and inviting feedback, rather than claiming to have all the answers and solutions. Also the name is perfect 😉
She’s an excellent writer and has already, in just a few emails, uncovered some really interesting stuff. Read the introduction to the project and sign up on Medium.com
(By the way, Ctrl Alt Right Delete is hosted on Action Network, a platform that enables online organising. It looks super interesting and I’m going to test it out myself.)
Thanks to Amelia Showalter for tipping me off to this.
