Biography

Zoë Tiberius Quinn (born 1987) is an American video game developer, programmer, writer, and artist. She developed the interactive fiction Depression Quest, a Twine game released on Steam. In 2014, a blog post by her ex-boyfriend sparked the Gamergate controversy, in which Quinn was subjected to extensive harassment.

In January 2015, Quinn co-founded Crash Override, a private network of experts to assist victims of online harassment which in March 2015 joined forces with Randi Harper's Online Abuse Prevention Initiative.

On September 24, 2015, Quinn spoke at the United Nations along with Anita Sarkeesian about online harassment. In her speech, Quinn spoke about the need for technology companies to provide proper moderation and terms of service which protect marginalized groups. She also raised concerns about providing better protections for transgender women and victims of domestic violence on the Internet.
