time for technology companies to do their bit in fight against violent extremism

I’m quoted in this excellent Radio Four documentary on the use of social media by violent extremist groups, such as ISIS.

For too long, the big technology companies have thrown tiny bits of money at the problem as a cover for inactivity and apathy. Experience shows that when they are faced with deep pockets (copyright infringement) or public anger (indecent child images) they manage to get things done.

I’ve written about this at length in this report, too, co-authored by Tanya Silverman.

Less talk, more action. Our young people deserve better from us.
