Move Fast and Break Things is a phrase used by technology and software companies, pointing to how the accelerated pace of innovation may bring with it unintended consequences.
News of data breaches, hacked systems and computers being manipulated are occurring with increasing regularity, and the looming threat of artificial intelligence threatens to negatively impact already marginalised people and communities.

Move Fast and Break Things explores the comparatively innocent origins of computing and the thrill of innovation – but also how the messy and chaotic future we’re now living in may have been unforeseen.
