When Your Website Looks Like 1995 in 2020

I recently had a friend connect with me on LinkedIn. I hadn’t talked to this person in quite a few years and naturally (as I tend to do) took a peek at his companies’ website. I won’t say what his organization does, as that will give it away and I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings, but I will tell you I was shocked at what I found. While I can’t point to the URL, I will tell you what I discovered and how this may apply to you and your business. We will examine Design, Content & Security. Design: Their website looks like something we were building in the mid to late 90s, or as I like to say the early days of the web. The amazing thing is that this organization serves tens of thousands of members and is collecting huge fees (which isn’t going to their technology 😉 ). The… Source link

Algorithms associating appearance and criminality have a dark past

Using facial recognition software to analyse criminality is commonplace in many countries, but its origin very dark indeed.     ‘Phrenology’ has an old-fashioned ring to it. It sounds like it belongs in a history book, filed somewhere between bloodletting and velocipedes. We’d like to think that judging people’s worth based on the size and shape of their skull is a practice that’s well behind us. However, phrenology is once again rearing its lumpy head. In recent years,… Source link

Will America Win The Race For Nuclear Fusion?

An MIT spin-out company is planning to cross the commercial nuclear fusion finish line before anyone else, and big money is backing this game-changing tech that will dictate our energy future by promising unlimited zero-carbon energy–the holy grail.  By 2025, Commonwealth Fusion Systems (CFS)–an MIT spin-out–plans to see is SPARC project become the first fusion reactor to show “net energy gain” by 2025. By 2030, it intends to make nuclear fusion a commercial reality, disrupting all those nuclear fusion experiments elsewhere in the world that have been working towards this a lot longer, and disrupting energy–forever. Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates believes it. He was the first big backer of CFS. And now, Norway’s oil giant–Equinor–is throwing money behind it.  Last… Source link

GoDaddy Hack Breaches Hosting Account Credentials – Threatpost

The domain registrar giant said that the breach started in October 2019. UPDATE GoDaddy, the world’s largest domain name registrar, is warning customers that attackers may have obtained their web hosting account credentials.

The Scottsdale, Ariz.-based company has more than 19 million customers worldwide, but only 28,000 were affected by the attack. The… Source link
