Tristan Walker: The Visible Man

Tristan Walker: The Visible Man | Digital & Internet Marketing News | Scoop.it
A bold entrepreneur with a radical startup. An African-American. In tech, those two phrases usually don't go together. Enter Tristan Walker.
Kimberly Castleberry's insight:

It isn't just females that Silicon Valley and many other tech hubs show a shortage of... it's also racial minorities. (And female minorities are a statistic that is much closer to zero than any real number.)

Yet, it's important that we look at people breaking ground and hold them as role models - in the same way we do their peers - so that kids of all genetics may have people to look up too in the elite sector of business, entrepreneur-ism, and tech.

Twitter's IPO Is More Proof That Tech Is In A Massive Bubble | Digital & Internet Marketing News | Scoop.it
Twitter's frothy IPO should end all doubts about Tech Bubble 2.0's existence.
Kimberly Castleberry's insight:

Is the successful Twitter IPO proof of a massive tech bubble looming... which could leave investors losing their shirts... or just a natural evolution of these social media giants? No one is denying that the sites have value but given the valuation formulas being used there is definitely some reason for concern at the pricing.

Google Encrypts All Gmail Messages After NSA Snooping

Google Encrypts All Gmail Messages After NSA Snooping | Digital & Internet Marketing News | Scoop.it
From now on, Gmail users no longer have the option of using more insecure HTTP connections.
Kimberly Castleberry's insight:
Google Encrypts All Gmail Messages After NSA Snooping
Rather than charge NSA for access to your account - thus making money - as Microsoft does of your hotmail accounts... Google has taken a move to head off the NSA by applying default encryption to all gmail accounts.*

Gmail HTTPS has been an option for several years but now there is no longer an option to turn it off. 

In addition to the data being encrypted when it travels from Google to you... the data is now also encrypted as it travels between Google's servers... putting a serious wrench in the NSA's eavesdropping plans. 

You don't need to do anything or make any changes, to benefit from this move by Google to protect you. 

Well Played, Google... well played!
