“Alt-tech” refers to emerging technologie[2] platforms that gained prominence in the 2010s, largely as a result of deplatforming[1] actions by major tech companies like Google[5], Facebook[3]et Twitter[6]. These platforms offer an alternative space for those who criticize mainstream technology giants’ control over online discourse[4]. Alt-tech platforms have become particularly popular among right-wing communities and are often associated with the uncensored dissemination of far-right, nationalist, and extremist viewpoints. They serve as platforms for the spread of conspiracy theories and extremist ideologies, and have been used for mobilization and recruitment by far-right extremists. The rise of these platforms has prompted various legal and financial actions, and has had significant impacts on online discourse and behavior.

Définitions des termes
1. deplatforming.
1 Deplatforming refers to a modern practice where individuals or organizations are restricted or removed from participating in a public forum or social media platform, often due to controversial or harmful behavior. This action, which has roots in the banning of certain speakers from U.S. university campuses in the 1940s, has evolved with the advent of social media. Today, platforms such as Reddit, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter employ deplatforming to moderate content and control the spread of extremism. High-profile instances, such as the banning of figures like Alex Jones and Donald Trump, have brought attention to its impact and stirred debates about free speech, political neutrality, and the power of tech companies. Legislation addressing deplatforming is also being considered in several countries, including the United Kingdom and the United States. However, the practice remains controversial, with critics raising concerns about its effects on academic freedom and the rights of users. Despite these controversies, deplatforming continues to be a significant tool in the digital age for managing content and shaping online discourse.

2. technologie. La technologie, dérivée des mots grecs signifiant artisanat et connaissance, est un terme général qui désigne les outils, les machines et les systèmes mis au point par l'homme pour résoudre des problèmes ou atteindre des objectifs. Née avec des outils primitifs comme les haches de pierre et la découverte du feu, la technologie a évolué de manière significative tout au long de l'histoire de l'humanité. Elle a joué un rôle déterminant à différentes époques, depuis l'invention de la roue et des systèmes d'irrigation avancés dans les civilisations anciennes jusqu'à la naissance des universités et de la presse à imprimer au cours des périodes médiévale et de la Renaissance. La révolution industrielle du XVIIIe siècle a marqué un tournant important dans la production de masse et l'innovation, donnant naissance aux technologies modernes telles que l'électricité, l'automobile et les plates-formes de communication numérique. Aujourd'hui, la technologie fait partie intégrante de divers aspects de la vie et de la société, stimulant la croissance économique et les changements sociétaux, tout en suscitant des préoccupations en matière de sécurité, de respect de la vie privée et d'incidences sur l'environnement. L'avenir de la technologie devrait apporter encore plus de progrès, avec l'essor de l'intelligence artificielle qui devrait avoir des implications significatives sur le marché du travail.
