Hey All,

Happy Friday! Here are our Top 10 finds for this past week. I hope everyone is staying safe and not going crazy at home.

This batch is a good one.

  1. NASA CIO Agencywide Memo: Alert: Cyber Threats Significantly Increasing During Coronavirus Pandemic (SpaceRef)
    Sad but true. Bad actors are going to capitalize on the pandemic to take advantage of people. Beware.
  2. Foursquare merges with Factual (TechCrunch)
    It will be interesting to see how Foursquare innovates.
  3. HubSpot unveils new content management system aimed at marketers (TechCrunch)
    Hubspot building out a CMS outside of its marketing suite is intriguing, but will it survive? WordPress, and yes I’m bias, already powers 35% + of the websites online.

    This is a step in the right direction for the messaging app with more than a billion users.
  5. GoDaddy Acquires Domain Registry of .US, .Biz, .In and .Co (Search Engine Journal)
    Anyone who knows me knows I’m not a big fan of GoDaddy. So this does have me worried, even with their assurances that they will be a fair and just owner.
  6. A Technical SEO Checklist for the Non-Technical Marketer (Search Engine Journal)
    This is an older article, but has tons of great information. During these strange times, I think it’s a good piece to read.
  7. Why the coronavirus lockdown is making the internet stronger than ever (MIT Technology Review)
    This is heartening how the internet is bringing us closer together in a way that we wouldn’t be able to 10 years ago.
  8. The changes covid-19 is forcing on to business (Economist)
    A lengthy piece but well worth the read.
  9. How To Support Loved Ones Facing Mental Illness (WPandUP)
    Great article explaining Mental Illness and how to support loved ones right now facing this onslaught. It’s a tough time and we have to be there for each other.
  10. Webcams have become impossible to find, and prices are skyrocketing (The Verge)
    With more people using online conferencing tools like Zoom. I’m not surprised there has been a run on webcams. Heck you can’t even get a laptop.
