Technically Wrong demystifies the tech industry and shows the innards of how the information that we freely give is used against us. Well, maybe not against us- but not for us It is primarily utilized for the tech companies to make money and secondly to sell to other companies for profit and our (the consumers) benefit last.

Sara paints a depressing picture of a woman's career prospects in the tech industry detailing workplace bias and discriminatory practices. Alongside social media practices that ignore people who don't fit into neat boxes, this was a thought provoking read. Pick it up and see if you don't think twice about the next form you fill out and even your social media precense in total.

I'm a lifelong bibliophile who happens to love children's books and who should have become a librarian. Instead I horde books in case of apocalypse or the enactment of a Fahrenheit 451 type law. My five kids accept my addiction and have learned to accept books in odd places.
