The Inventors of the Internet Are Trying to Build a Truly Permanent Web If you wanted to write a history of the Internet, one of the first things you would do is dig into the email archives of Vint Cerf. In 1973, he co-created the protocols that Internet servers use to communicate with each other without the need for any kind of centralized authority or control. He has spent the decades since shaping the Internet’s development, most recently as Google’s “chief Internet evangelist.” Thankfully, Cerf says he has archived about 40 years of old email—a first-hand history of the Internet stretching back almost as far as the Internet itself. But you’d also have a pretty big problem: a whole lot of that email you just wouldn’t be able to open. The programs Cerf used to write those emails, and the formats in which they’re stored, just don’t work on any current computer you’d likely be using to try to read them. Don’t believe it? The Permanent Web Today, much of the responsibility for preserving the web’s history rests on The Internet Archive. Why Bother?

Free Online Photography Resources No matter what business you’re in today, almost everyone has a website and a blog. Photography has become one the biggest trends to create an aesthetic design no matter what the context. As a designer, I always try to use photography as much as possible, but I often need more resources than just iStock to create different looks and feels. I’ve come across numerous great resources, but I want to share with you the most hassle-free and free of cost photography resources. 1. Unsplash is a free photography resource by The Crew. 2.

Top 5 annoying practices of security vendors Do you remember the good ol' times when security vendors used to sell you exactly what you asked for? When you wanted to buy an antivirus or a security suite, the vendor would sell you exactly that: an antivirus or a security suite. But times have changed and more and more companies don't do that anymore. Instead, they charge you for the product you buy, but they also make money off you by bundling all kinds of bloatware that you don't need or want. Unfortunately, this has become a common practice on the security market and fewer companies still do things the old way. Today, we're going to show you some of the most common annoying practices among security vendors: 1. Many security companies choose to do this, even if you buy their commercial products.

The trick is getting more people to adopt these programs (think of it like herd immunity). “I think reform comes with many faces,” Snowden told the site.

Turning a crappy old Windows PC into a full-fledged Chromebook with CloudReady Back in my IT days, one of the things I liked doing the most was repurposing old equipment. It was pretty easy to image, customize, and deliver new computers to people once every three or four years, but it was more fun to fix up the three- or four-year-old PCs you’d get back and then use them to replace stuff around campus that was even older. There was always plenty to do. Which is why I was intrigued when a pitch for Neverware’s CloudReady showed up in my inbox. Cloudready is primarily aimed at those schools and businesses, but, as of earlier this month, individuals can take it for a spin for free.
