"As both an entrepreneur and a parent, I'm deeply concerned with how Silicon Valley's move fast and break things ethos has co-opted and corrupted the awesome power of the internet in ways that have put our society and future at risk," said McCourt. "Through OUR BIGGEST FIGHT, I hope to convey the urgency of this moment and how autocratic surveillance technology is stripping us of our personhood and causing great harms to society. By drawing on lessons of the past and redesigning what this powerful technology optimizes for, we can reclaim our ability to chart a new course and build an internet that empowers people over platforms."
Building upon McCourt's ongoing work with Project Liberty – a far-reaching, $500-million initiative to create a better, healthier internet – the book addresses the urgent, growing threat today's highly centralized internet infrastructure presents to democracy, youth mental health, and individual data rights. Described by Crown as "a resounding call to action for building a healthier and more equitable internet that frees users from Big Tech's exploitation, recognizes individuals' rights to their data, safeguards children and prioritizes the common good," OUR BIGGEST FIGHT provides a gameplan for advancing innovative solutions.
