Scott Steinberg on Manners for the Digital World

The good news is that digital connections have brought us closer. That’s also the bad news as the merging of our work, school, and personal lives raises a new and very complicated set of issues around who sees what. Protecting privacy, staying safe, demonstrating professionalism, and responding to views or behavior you might prefer not to have seen can all be difficult. In his new book, Netiquette Essentials: New Rules for Minding Your Manners in a Digital World , Scott Steinberg provides thoughtful guidance for navigating the challenges of social media. He answered my questions about what to share, when to check your email, and whether to friend your boss on Facebook.

There Is Passive Income Hiding In Your Driveway

Image Courtesy of Pied Parker With more than 38 million people living in California, a surprisingly low number of on-street public parking spaces are made available. As a result, commuters waste time and experience frustration as they endlessly search to find parking. What we don’t know, however, is that this greatly impacts ALL of us, especially homeowners. The lack of parking spots creates significant traffic in the community. A distinguished research professor in the Department of Urban Planning at UCLA, Donald Shoup, estimates that searching for parking spaces is responsible for 30 percent or more of traffic congestion in cities. This added congestion also creates about 366,000 excess vehicle miles traveled and produces 325 tons of CO2 per year

‘Fake News’ And Runaway Technology

Societies are shaped by technology. That’s always been true.  Be it: fire, the wheel, fermented drinks, the stirrup, the printing press, the internal combustion engine, electricity, the computer.  The applications and management of technological innovation trace a more complex trajectory than the techniques themselves. Nothing is compelling or automatic. These days, the most radical technological innovations are occurring in the field of digital communications

We Tried Hater, The Dating App That Matches People Based On What They Hate

If you hate a lot of things (but don’t hate online dating) then this app might be for you. A new dating app called  Hater , which publicly launches February 8th (yes, just in time for Valentine’s Day), takes the concept of matching people based on things they both like, and flips it on its head. So if you don’t like long walks on the beach, drinking pina coladas, and taking walks in the rain, Hater will find you someone who despises those very things too.  The app allows users to swipe in four different directions to select whether they love, hate, like, or dislike a person, activity or concept.  Hater launched in beta in December, and the creators told HuffPost that about 10,000 people are using the app before its official roll out. In the name of journalism, we checked it out too. In playing around on Hater, the app’s design is sleek and chic.

Reddit Bans Prominent Alt-Right Community Amidst Doxxing Rumors

The so-called alt-right has lost one of its prominent online gathering spaces after Reddit banned a subreddit dedicated to the group, which is characterized by white nationalist, anti-Semitic and misogynist viewpoints. The “ /r/altright ” community was well known on Reddit and around the web for the derogatory nature of its conversations. If you visit what used to be the “/r/altright” community’s page, the message that fills the screen says: “This subreddit was banned due to a violation of our content policy, specifically, the proliferation of personal and confidential information.” We reached out to Reddit for more details. Their statement notes: Reddit is the proud home to some of the most authentic conversations online. We strive to be a welcoming, open platform for all by trusting our users to maintain an environment that cultivates genuine conversation and adheres to our content policy.     We are very clear in our site  terms of service  that posting of personal information can get users banned from Reddit and we ask our communities not to post content that harasses or invites harassment. We have banned r/altright due to repeated violations of the terms of our content policy.

Is Your Email Account Secure on Public WiFi?

In the 1990s, almost no one worried about the possibility of a stranger gaining unauthorized access to their email account. At that time, most people only used email to connect with friends and family, so even if their account was compromised, it didn’t pose much of a risk. Today, email accounts not only carry personal information in private conversations but are the method for recovering lost passwords for online accounts. So gaining access to your email account can be a golden ticket for hackers to get into online accounts you’ve set up for online banking, investment accounts, social media, and file sharing, just to name a few. According to data gathered from more than 20,000 anonymous users, the average person in the U.S. has 130 accounts registered to one email address

Snap Makes $3 Billion IPO Details Public

Snap Inc, owner of popular messaging service Snapchat, made many of its financial details public for the first time on Thursday, as it prepared to raise up to $3 billion in an initial public offering in New York that is expected to come in March. The disclosure was Snap’s opening salvo in convincing investors that the company, which launched in 2012 as a free mobile app with disappearing messages, has come up with a sustainable business model despite increasing losses. Snap had confidentially registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission late last year and kept the prospectus under such tight wraps that even some of its IPO underwriters had not seen it prior to publication on Thursday, sources familiar with the matter told Reuters. Snap said in the IPO registration document published on Thursday it would become the first U.S.
