Multiple women have come forward accusing tech evangelist Robert Scoble of sexual harassment and assault. His former Rackspace colleague Michelle Greer and journalist Quinn Norton both accused Scoble of groping them in the early 2010s. Scoble responded to the accusations in an interview with USA Today, alleging that the sexual harassment happened at a time when he was struggling with a drinking problem, which he ultimately went to AA for in 2015.

Over the course of the past few weeks, the media world has been experiencing a bit of a wake-up call about rampant sexual harassment throughout the industry after an anonymously sourced list of allegations circulated on Google Drive. At the same time, growing numbers of women have been using the hashtag #MeToo to talk about their own experiences of harassment -- including in Silicon Valley, where the culture can be so bad that allegations startup UploadVR had a "kink room" were no less disgusting, but not exactly surprising.
