It’s nice to be needed. Like a lot of people, I take great pride in knowing that I’m an integral part of a team, and I’ve worked hard to establish myself as a crucial asset to my employers—past and present. I have a feeling a lot of you approach your careers this way, too.

The only problem with this is, when it comes time to leave your job— whether it’s to pursue a new opportunity, to raise a family, or just to take a break —you end up feeling incredibly guilty. What will your company do without you?

The next time you upgrade your Wi-Fi equipment, take a bold step: Throw out your stand-alone router and instead consider investing in a so-called mesh system.

There's now a tool to test for NSA spyware

A script that detects a related code implant has shown as many as 100,000 systems worldwide may be infected
Has your computer been infected with a suspected NSA spying implant? A security researcher has come up with a free tool that can tell.

Luke Jennings of security firm Countercept wrote a script in response to last week’s high-profile leak of cyberweapons that some researchers believe are from the U.S. National Security Agency. It's designed to detect an implant called Doublepulsar, which is delivered by many of the Windows-based exploits found in the leak and can be used to load other malware.

The script, which requires some programming skill to use, is available for download on GitHub.

To Keep Teens Safe Online, They Need To Learn To Manage Risk (NPR story)

Parents of teens know how tricky it is to keep their kids physically safe while balancing their need for greater independence, but when it comes to keeping them safe online, it can be even trickier.

Horror stories of social media harassment and exposure to explicit content leading to teen suicide or even murder abound. With 91 percent of U.S. teens accessing the Internet via a mobile device that allows them to be online anywhere and at all times of day, parents are desperately looking for ways to protect teens from online predators, bullies, and their own poor decision making.

Most apps sold to promote teen safety online focus on giving parents control over the phone, rather than helping teens learn how to navigate the web safely, a study finds.

Colorado’s Selling Points Have Helped Push Denver From 'Cowtown' To Tech Town

While big firms like BP and Arrow Electronics grab headlines when they relocate to Colorado, it’s new businesses like Jacob Zax’ app startup, Edify, driving much of the state’s job growth as it comes out of the recession. Colorado has the seventh highest concentration of new businesses: One in every three businesses here are no more than five years old, according to the CU Leeds School of Business.

But a tech startup in Denver? Silicon Valley might seem more likely.

“The Bay Area is an amazing place for entrepreneurs,” Zax says. “But when you talk about young entrepreneurs, or people that are just starting, it’s a balance of factors.”
According to a new report from the Kauffman Foundation, Colorado has the highest rate of young entrepreneurs in the country, for many of the reasons the Edify co-founder and CEO cites: educated workers, access to capital, great mentors, an international airport.
