Alt-Tech is an alternative technology movement discussed by members of the Alt-Right, including Vox Day, Pax Dickinson, Cody Wilson and Andrew Torba among others. It is intended to be Anti-Marxist, Pro-Freedom and Pro-America.[1]

Members of Alt-Tech include Hatreon[2], Gab and Infogalactic.

Main stream media response

The Main stream media has generally applied labels like far-right and Nazis to members of Alt-Tech. The LA Times claimed:

The new companies are small, paling in audience size to their gargantuan, mainstream counterparts. But piece by piece, supporters of the far-right are assembling their own corporate tech world — a shadow Silicon Valley, one with fewer rules.

— LA Times[3]

Slate has claimed that the Alt-Tech movement wants "to build their own internet, one that can be a haven for hate."[4]. However, Vox Day has stated that others in the media have started to realize that the Internet is dominated by Big-Tech companies, which are allegedly using their power to censor the internet in ways that are very self serving or left-wing biased.
