Virtual private network VPN connectivity overview A virtual private network connection across the Internet is similar to a wide area network (WAN) link between sites. From a user perspective, the extended network resources are accessed in the same way as resources available within the private network. VPNs allow employees to securely access their company's intranet while traveling outside the office. Similarly, VPNs securely connect geographically disparate offices of an organization, creating one cohesive network. VPN technology is also used by Internet users to connect to proxy servers for the purpose of protecting personal identity and location.
From a Facebook group to an organization - the OuiShare Manifesto It all started in 2010, when Antonin Léonard was blogging about collaborative consumption in French. Little did he know that this was the beginning of the organization we now call OuiShare – a network of people with common values, which have finally been summarized in a manifesto. In its early stages, the OuiShare community was a Facebook group created by Antonin in April 2011 to connect people who believed in the potential of the collaborative economy and were trying to make it a reality.

British public to choose ‘greatest issue of our time’ for £10 million prize Longitude Prize 2014, a challenge with a prize fund of £10 million, has been launched today to help solve one the greatest issues of our time. The British public will cast the deciding vote to choose the issue that the prize will tackle. The prize has been developed and run by Nesta, the UK’s innovation foundation. It was launched by the Prime Minister at G8 last year, and through the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills is being supported by the Technology Strategy Board, the UK’s innovation agency, as launch funding partner. Longitude Prize 2014 commemorates the 300th anniversary of the Longitude Act where in 1714 the British government threw down the gauntlet to solve one of the great scientific challenges of that century: how to pinpoint a ship’s location at sea by knowing its longitude. The challenge was solved by watchmaker and carpenter John Harrison who designed the chronometer, the first seafaring clock that allowed accurate navigation.

The Next Stage of Human Evolution What lies beyond our current stage of human evolution? How does this connect to what Jesus, Buddha and other great avatars and mystics have revealed about our higher potential? And how do we begin to translate the truth of Oneness into new forms of wholeness, in community and social organization? If you are curious about these questions and what they reveal about your own evolutionary journey, we have an important call event for you with Barbara Marx Hubbard. Barbara is not only one of the most beloved visionaries of our day, she is also deeply committed to taking the next evolutionary leap and sharing all that she is learning as she finds herself “birthing” herself anew at the age of 84. Barbara has publicly committed to go “all the way” in this lifetime, which has resulted in remarkable revelations about our further evolution as a human species as new truths emerge through her experience and those around her.
