In recent conversation, I discovered many of my friends are trying to grow, but struggling to make progress. I dug deeper and realized, growth frameworks are not widely known or practiced.
While these may sound like a chore to do I believe most people need some help with guidance of their career.
Justin Williams :
I like to think I take an above average amount of steps to secure myself online: I use a password manager, unique passwords as complex as the site will allow, and turn on 2-factor authentication when possible. A true security expert will likely find some sort of flaw in my setup, but I’ll argue that I am doing more than 95% of the planet.
So how did I, someone who is reasonably secure, have his cell phone disabled, his PayPal account compromised, and a few hundred dollars withdrawn from his bank account?
Even when you do the right things to increase your security, social engineering can bypass it all.
Without saying the words “Russia,” “Hillary Clinton,” or “Donald Trump,” Facebook acknowledged Thursday for the first time what others have been saying for months.
In a paper released by its security division, the company said “malicious actors” used the platform during the 2016 presidential election as part of a campaign “with the intent of harming the reputation of specific political targets.”
If you need another reason to leave Facebook, this is a pretty good one.
If they had done something about it prior to the election maybe the world wouldn’t be in the position it is now.
TVNZ has started live streaming its free-to-air channels along with its Duke on-demand service via a revamped tvnz.co.nz web site, and has promised to make the service available on Apple TV and on Google’s Chromecast.
Finally Apple TV and Chromecast support.
Dynamic import expressions are a new feature in ECMAScript that allows you to asynchronously request a module at any arbitrary point in your program. These modules come back as Promises of the module itself, and can be await-ed in an async function, or can be given a callback with .then.
What this means in short that you can conditionally and lazily import other modules and libraries to make your application more efficient and resource-conscious.
A great new feature for ECMAscript now available in TypeScript.
Today, Sega began releasing classic Sega games under the banner Sega Forever.
The first titles released are Sonic the Hedgehog, which was already available on iOS, Comix Zone, Altered Beast, Kid Chameleon, and Phantasy Star II. The games, which are standalone downloads, are free and include ads that can be removed with a $1.99 In-App Purchase.
I was a Sega kid growing up (Nintendo was expensive in NZ and harder to get). This brings back a lot of gaming nostalgia, I remember playing Altered Beast in the arcade. Pity they aren’t all available on the Apple TV.
Unsplash, a photo sharing startup, has launched their own branded license and updated their terms to add new restrictions and remove CC0 from their platform. As a result of the changes, Unsplash images are no longer in the public domain. The permissions offered can be revoked at any time, and Unsplash now has the right to pursue infringement on behalf of their users.
Well that’s a shame, I’ve used Unsplash in the past purely because of its great content and it’s nearly unrestricted license.
