Excellent advice +Patrick Sexton​ (as always) thanks! You only have a minute to make a first impression. And often that minute lasts for mere seconds.
 
Matching user intent
The more people who go to your page from Google and then hit the back button, the lower our ranking will be. Often people hit that back button because they do not see immediately that your webpage will help them.
We as webmasters can not change a users intent, but we absolutely can let them know we have matched it.
We can do this by clearly and quickly letting them know that our webpage is exactly what they are looking for.
One of the most important factors of SEO, clearly matching user intent can boost your traffic by letting users know they are where they should be.

Still a great service, but if you do use it, change your master password.
 
#LastPass officials warned Monday that attackers have compromised servers that run the company's #password management service and made off with cryptographically protected passwords and other sensitive user data. It was the second breach notification regarding the service in the past four years. #databreach #hackers #hacked
Users: Change your master password and enable 2-factor authentication immediately.

Great news, the Rosetta comet lander is awake, and sending data. She's finally saved up enough energy to re-awaken, start studying her surroundings, and send it back to earth.
 
The ESA's Rosetta comet mission is back in contact with its Philae lander after it snoozed 7 months in the shade. And it's been awake for awhile before it could resume contact: it's stored up 8000 data packets to be sent.

The Untold Story of the Rise and Fall of Silk Road

Now that Ross Ulbricht has been sentenced to multiple life sentences in prison for his role as Dread Pirate Roberts of the Silk Road Marketplace, the whole story can finally be told.

In this excellent in-depth well written article from +WIRED written by Joshua Bearman and Tomer Hanuka, we get to learn what really happened, what went wrong, and how it all fell apart at the end.

Although it is a long read, it is well worth it, and I can't wait for the book to come out.

What do you think?  Was Ross Ulbricht the Dread Pirate Roberts?  Did he create the Silk Road Marketplace?  Was he acting alone?  Or was he set up, the unwitting fall guy for a criminal mastermind?

And what about Carl Mark Force the IV?  (And Shaun Bridges who isn't even mentioned in this article?)  Their mirrored role and subsequent rise and fall is just amazing too.

Sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction.  Because fiction has to make sense.  Read the article and let me know in the comments what you think.

It wasn't a great year as far as #CyberCrime goes for those practitioners of #InfoSec and information security. That's for sure.
 
2014 in particular saw some of the worst #cyberattacks in history. A wild year filled with high profile security breaches resulting in millions of dollars worth of stolen information along with immeasurable reputational damage for the likes of #NeimanMarcus, #HomeDepot, #Staples and #JPMorgan. #databreaches #BoletoBancario

Gone Girl

I recently re-watched the excellent Gone Girl movie on +Netflix.  It's still a very good suspense movie.  That being said, as always, the book by Gillian Flynn is much better.

The motivations of the various characters, and the intricate plot points are spelled out in much more depth.  Plus, if anything, it is even more suspenseful and disturbing.

Have you watched the movie?  Have you read the book?  Did you even like the story?  If you've done both, which one did you prefer?

Elon Musk is one of the finest minds of our times.  Tesla (the man) and Tesla (the car) are two awesome things.  And SpaceX is great.  Put them together and you have one man with an amazing plan.
SpaceX started with a plan to send mice to Mars. It got crazier from there.

Low cost alternatives for malware. Great, just what we needed. It's all your fault +Lavasoft​! [:-)
 
While #botnets in the past had to run on systems that attackers owned or had compromised, they can now run on #Skype and other cloud-based #chat programs, providing an even lower-cost alternative for attackers. And that’s exactly what has happened in a widespread Skype solicitation phishing campaign. #adware

This is an excellent point, and a glaringly huge potential weakness. I have no qualms about letting +Google​ read my information, what I get back is worth so much more. What do you think?

Thanks +Mathew Ingram​.
