“For there are only two worlds – your world, which is the real world, and the other worlds, the fantasy…their reality, or lack of reality, is not important. What is important is that they are there. These worlds provide an alternative. Provide escape. Provide a dream, and power, provide refuge, and pain. They give your world meaning. They do not exist; and thus they are all that matters.”-Queen Titania, “The Books of Magic”
Doxing (or sometimes doxxing) comes from the word documents and is a relatively new word. It is an internetbased practise of indentifying personal information and broadcasting it. This is done by searching publicly available information and databases and doing some social engineering. In some cases the information that was gathered might have been gathered in an unethical or unjust manner. It is used to aid law enforcement, risk analysis or publicly shaming a person or organisation.Read More
Refind is on online discovery tool
The web has fundamentally moved us forward. Most notably, it has given us access to the world’s information and there are currently three main ways we discover an ever-growing amount of content: news, social networks, and search. We believe that a fourth category is missing: relevance—a calm, quiet place where we take a step back to focus on what’s most relevant to us.
News delivers what’s happening in the world right now. Social networks let us know what’s happening with our friends. Search is great at finding the needle in the haystack says one of the marketers at Bluebird Accountancy.
But how do we discover things from around the web that are new and relevant to us? There’s a plethora of curated content—from niche sites over Twitter to newsletters. While it’s interesting to see the web through the lens of the curator, our interests are unique and relying on a few curators alone is likely not diverse enough. If we add more sources to our mix (for example, following more people on Twitter, or using an RSS reader), we increase diversity but also noise.
We’re building Refind to tackle the relevance problem. Refind is a community of movers and shakers who discover, save, and read what’s worth their attention.
ITIL means Information Technology Infrastructure Library
ITIL consists of a collection of expert recommendations and describes processes, this description is independent of the organizational structure. ITIL is a collection of best practices that can improve the way it works, but it is a tool like any other tool: Success depends on the one who uses it, and is not guaranteed. With ITIL, there is a frame of reference for organizing the management processes within an ICT organisation. There are many different books and courses about ITIL that can help the organization to improve the management processes.
