Linked – The Botnet That Broke the Internet Isn’t Going Away

Sat, 10 Dec 2016 17:22:49 +0000

WHEN THE BOTNET named Mirai first appeared in September, it announced its existence with dramatic flair. After flooding a prominent security journalist’s website with traffic from zombie Internet of Things devices, it managed to make much of the internet unavailable for millions of people by overwhelming Dyn, a company that provides a significant portion of […]

eDiscovery is Everyone’s Concern

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 15:37:21 +0000

I once made the argument, years ago, that if you weren’t concerned about eDiscovery as a business owner, you should be. Not because you’re a huge litigation risk, per se, but because eventually, every business has to deal with some sort of complaint, or lawsuit, and when it happens, there is so much data sitting […]

Linked – This Is A Really Bad Idea: Facebook, Twitter, YouTube & Microsoft Agree To Block ‘Terrorist’ Content

Thu, 08 Dec 2016 15:43:54 +0000

“This sounds as though it’s modeled on similar arrangements around child pornography. Except that there are some major differences between child pornography and “terrorist content.” The first is that child porn is de facto illegal. “Terrorist content” is quite frequently perfectly legal. It’s also much more of a judgment call. And based on this setup, […]

“For example, Schneier and other experts testified that the same poor security exists in computers making their way into hospitals, including those used to manage elevators and ventilation systems. It’s not hard to imagine a fatal disaster, which makes it imperative that the government step in to fix this “market failure,” he said. The problems […]

Linked – Scrap Your Work From Home Policy

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 15:34:47 +0000

“OK, so here’s where it gets difficult. Because just saying “work from anywhere” won’t work unless you know what you’re working towards. In an autonomous working world, clear purpose, mission, and goals and objectives are important. We need to get clear on the results we are responsible for, and measure those – not the time […]

MailChimps Social Plugin Finally Just Stops Working

It’s been awhile since MailChimp retired their popular, and extremely useful, plugin that gathered up comments, likes, retweets, etc. from Facebook and Twitter and showed them right here on the blog. I continued to use it simply because tbhere is no other plugin that does both and does it so seamlessly. I knew, eventually, I […]

“If your IT department isn’t already worried about staff retention, some new stats might change that. A new poll finds 37% of IT pros plan to begin searching for a new employer in 2017, and 26% plan to accept a new job.” This might be a good time to make sure you have good succession […]

Linked – Blame the Echo Chamber on Facebook. But Blame Yourself, Too

In The Big Sort, Bill Bishop shows how, over the last 30 years, Americans have sorted themselves into like-minded neighborhoods. The same appears to be happening on the web. All the empirical research to date suggests that the reason is not the use of personalization algorithms per se. Algorithms can easily expose us to diverse […]

At the recent World Internet Conference in Wuzhen, Alibaba founder Jack Ma said the global economy will shift toward a creative-driven model in the next 30 years, moving away from a manufacturing-driven one. Even in the robot era, creative industries will thrive. Those who can cater to our emotional needs, think outside the box, identify […]

Linked – Why Do Managers And Employees Have Such Different Views Of Work-Life Balance?

According to research from Office Team, 63% of senior managers said their company is “very supportive of their staff’s efforts to achieve work-life balance.” However, only 34% of employees agreed with this statement. I think the disconnect comes from what we tell the people who work for us and what the organization actually requires of them. Let […]
