How to Setup a Wordpress Blog in 5 Minutes

How to Setup a Wordpress Blog in 5 Minutes | Moodle and Web 2.0 | Scoop.it

I started my blog using WordPress and I have found it a platform that makes it easy to own and publish your own content online.

 

It is the foundation to the success of this blog which currently receives over 300,000 hits per month.

 

If you’re looking for an easy way to create a web presence and start sharing your ideas online, the best way to do this is to create a blog. Millions of users around the world already express themselves and share their thoughts by means of their personal blogs.

 

The advantage of having your own WordPress blog that is self-hosted is that you own it.

 

It is good to have a Facebook “page” or a Tumblr blog but they are owned by someone else and you can have a web presence there but under their “Terms and Conditions” It is basically a rental.

Both org and .com variants of Wordpress are a delight to use, I have sued them for years, had to abandon my hosted Wordpress blog when I upgraded my website.  I miss it.

Imation relaunches Windows on USB stick system - Page 1 - Integrating IT

Imation relaunches Windows on USB stick system - Page 1 - Integrating IT | Moodle and Web 2.0 | Scoop.it

Imation has relaunched the Stealth Zone embedded Windows on USB stick product it acquired when buying Canadian firm MXI Technology last June.

Now called Stealth Zone Microsoft Windows Embedded Standard (MWES), the system remains a way of carrying the Windows OS around on a USB stick, booting into a secure Windows 7 or XP shell from a host PC.

The key innovation is the Stealth Zone's cold booting approach which dispenses with the need for virtualization, ideal for remote workers who need to wall off their home and work use of Windows.

The technology can configure device drivers automatically and, unlike virtualized alternatives, imposes no memory or resource limitations while encrypting user data and the OS itself using 256-bit AES.
