Christmas in Strasbourg 2018

This is going to be a bittersweet story today.   Last Tuesday, I went to Strasbourg and Colmar to report on the Christmas festivities for Eye Prefer Paris and for another website I write for.   I arrived in Colmar first on a sunny, cold crisp day and for the next few hours I was happy as can be, enjoying the markets, the decorations, and the joyous holiday spirit.

How to Find the Discipline and Focus to Write

This article is by Anne Marie Gazzolo. I am a master procrastinator and gold-medal winner in the art of distracting myself from what is important. I was so daunted by the amount of notes to gather into a cohesive first draft of my new book, Chosen, about the journeys of Bilbo and Frodo, I put it off again and again. I finally started in January 2017 after I was over the worst of the flu. I had some downtime while I recovered and used it wisely. And guess what? I finished my first draft far soon...

Targeting Phishing Attacks: Security Best Practices to Protect Your Business

By Mike Petsalis Email gets a bad rap. It’s treated as a cumbersome messaging system that was invented to work on the system that came before the internet, and has been rumored to be “dead” or dying for years now. Yet, it is still used extensively wherever communication is necessary for normal business operations. Its openness is what makes it useful, but also insecure. Fortunately, email security and the measures organizations can take to stop email threats have advanced sufficiently to still m...

In the winds of crypto winter

Well, it was surreal while it lasted, by which I mean the 2017-18 cryptocurrency bubble. For a while there, Coinbase was #1 in the App Store, Bitcoin was above $10K, and there were more notional crypto zillionaires out there than you could shake a Merkle tree at. Those were the crazy days. Now, though, a rude awakening has come. Now Bitcoin is down to $3200 and counting, other cryptocurrencies are down well over 90%, and worst of all, none of the billions of dollars which poured into cryptocurre...

How to delete Facebook without losing your friends and photos

Casey Neistat wrote an article back in 2014 how he ‘fixed’ his Facebook by unfriending people who shared too much. I tried this in 2017… and it absolutely didn’t work! People still share way too much and every time I go on Facebook it feels like like a whole plague of negativity that’s trying to give me cancer. Just no. It’s not cool. Facebook really isn’t the ‘cool’ platform it was back in 2008. The thing is, I can’t just go and delete it. Having lived abroad, there’s a whole lot of connections...

An HR exec who's worked at Facebook and Amazon says top tech companies are hunting for candidates with a quality you'd probably expect them to hate

Former Facebook and Amazon HR exec Bharath Jayaraman says top tech companies value people who can collaborate effectively. That means knowing how to argue and disagree respectfully. It's critical that your coworker should never question your commitment to the team or the product during the conflict. Netflix prizes employees who are "extraordinarily candid." Amazon, those who are "vocally self-critical" and able to " ," i.e. forge ahead on a project even if they don't currently support it. Top...
