      Privacy professionals are in demand. Will it lead to better privacy?

      More companies are hiring professionals to help them navigate the waters of data collection and privacy, but the windfall of the privacy professional does not necessarily equate to more privacy for consumers.

      In a survey released this week, the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) found companies in the Fortune 1000 spending an average (mean) of $2.4 million on their privacy programs, with most of the budget being spent on staff and legal fees.

      What Software Developers can learn from their PC Gaming Developer Cousins

      As an avid PC gamer I happen to have a love for military strategy and war games.  Just to expose my nerdy credentials, I once played a “play-by-email” game with my father (he in the UK, me in the US).  We simulated War in the Pacific over a 3 and a half year cycle.  Every week we would take turns to move our pieces, plan our strategy, and send the resulting file by email.  He won.  Nuff said.

      You spend more than two hours a day staring at your phones. To be more specific, you spent about 141 minutes using your mobile device in 2013, up from just 20 minutes five years ago.

      Facebook says you can be social and secure, acquires .onion address for Tor users

      10 Proof Points - Why Customer Experience Is the Next Big Thing

      If you’re bombarded as much as most marketers are with pushed content, then you’re probably skeptical of one more claim for the “next big thing”. Every marketing technology and service provider, every specialized association and publication, and every “independent” pundit has at one time or another proclaimed the “next big thing” you need to pay attention to – and of course invest in. Even when they present proof points, I take the claims with a grain (sometimes a heaping teaspoon) of salt.

      It’s difficult to simply 'drop' big Data applications into an existing IT infrastructure and expect to run smoothly. In addition to energy and cooling requirements for new hardware to support the new big data application, other IT areas need to prepare.
