The internet's 'father' says it was born with two big flaws (GOOGL)

Vint Cerf, one of the creators of the internet, said the network had two big flaws when he launched it. The internet didn't have room for all the devices that would eventually be connected to it, said Cerf, now Google's chief internet evangelist. It also didn't have any built-in security protocols. Even though both shortcomings proved problematic, Cerf's not certain he would have fixed them if he had to do it all over again. The internet was born flawed. But if it hadn't been, it might not ha...

Screen Time Tracking/Management

In my “What Happened in 2018” post I wrote this: And the usage of screen time management apps, like Screentime on iOS, is surging. We know we are addicted to tech, we don’t want to be, and we are working on getting sober. I wrote that based mostly on anecdotal data but we have been looking for better data and have not found it. So Dani and I worked on a survey that she ran last week and we got these results from a survey of 1,000 adults in the US using Google Surveys: 24% use an app ...

YouTube is giving people 2 months to take down videos of dangerous stunts like doing the 'Bird Box' challenge while driving

YouTube has explicitly banned challenges and pranks that put people in serious danger, according to an FAQ post on Tuesday. It cited the "Tide pod challenge" as an example of an unacceptably dangerous stunt, though more recent videos have been removed of users attempting dangerous tasks such as driving while doing the "Bird Box" challenge, which involves wearing a blindfold. YouTube said users had a two-month "grace period" to clean up their channels. YouTube has updated its guidelines to exp...

This incredibly simple tool gives every website you visit a 'dark mode'

A web browser extension lets you change the color theme of websites from bright and/or white to dark mode.  The extension is called Dark Reader, and it's available for free for Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.  Dark modes on pretty much everything — including operating systems, apps, and websites — are much more comfortable for your eyes, especially when you're in a dark room.  I'm going to go ahead and claim that one of the biggest oversights in modern tech is darkness — blissful, easy-on-the-ey...

Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins tells us how he led the $200 billion company to growth when everybody expected it to get crushed in the cloud wars (CSCO)

When John Chambers announced his retirement as CEO of Cisco, he hand-picked Chuck Robbins to be his successor. And when Robbins officially took over, he called his shot: Under his leadership, Cisco would move faster — much faster — to stay ahead of the changing times.  At the time, Cisco was still a Silicon Valley powerhouse, but doubts were beginning to swirl. Companies were moving to Amazon's cloud, or Microsoft's, or Google's, in a trend that's only accelerated in the years since. And the mo...

This is what a workday looks like for a CEO who runs his entire 40-employee tech company from a farm in New Zealand

Christian Mairoll is the CEO of Emsisoft — a company with no offices, where every single employee works remotely.  Mairoll now lives in New Zealand, where he manages employees in the U.S. and Europe in the early morning, and employees in Asia in the late afternoon. During midday, his work quiets down, so he'll take time to check on his sheep and chickens, do some gardening with his wife, or even go to the beach.

On-Page SEO Isn’t Dead

SEO Every year, like clockwork, internet marketing “experts” like to declare the end of SEO .  Everything from Rankbrain to Google’s expansion of Google Ads (formerly Adwords) was supposed to be the final nail in the SEO coffin.

Facebook is working on a new platform specifically for meme-obsessed teens that's already being described as 'cringey' (FB)

Facebook is quietly building a platform for discovering memes, TechCrunch reports. The platform is called LOL, and will consist of "funny videos and GIF-like clips" that users can vote on and share. However, LOL was described as "cringey" to TechCrunch, and the platform is said to be out of touch with the wants of meme-obsessed teens.

Unsealed court documents reveal that Facebook knew kids were being tricked into spending thousands of dollars on their parents' credit cards

In 2012, Facebook settled a class-action suit with parents who claimed that their kids were being tricked into spending real money on game items, thinking they were spending virtual in-game currency; the parents said that Facebook had structured its system to allow kids to use their parents' credit cards without the parents' intervention, unlike competitors like Google and Apple, who required password re-entries when a card was re-charged for in-game purchases. When the case was settled, th...
