Gender-based discrimination in the workplace doesn't surprise me, least of all in tech-based industries. Recent examples like the alleged sexual harassment by Tinder's co-founder Justin Mateen, and a diversity report finding only 30 per cent of Google's employees to be female, underline the undeniable fact that women are treated to a different set of rules in this male dominated atmosphere.

We're going to get a little nostalgic up in here.

Remember when you had to "log on" to the internet and listen to your modem make all those wacky noises? And before you started surfing the interweb, you had to tell everybody in your household because it meant the phone line would be busy?

Long before social media was a thing, we believed that there was a clear divide between what happened online and "real life."
