Some great advice here about securing your Wordpress Blog from hackers. 
 
Improving The Security of Your WordPress Blog

About a month ago, this WordPress blog was hacked. And since my other websites like ctrlq.org and hundredzeros.com are hosted on the same web server, the hacker successfully managed to wipe off all these sites from the Internet as well.

The web hosting company says that it could have happened because one of the sites was running an older version of WordPress. The passwords weren’t compromised though as all the login activity happened from known IP addresses. It was a tough period but fortunately, the deleted sites have been restored and the traffic is also back to normal.

Here’s a list of changes I have done to improve the security of my WordPress blogs though the perpetual worry that such a thing can happen again will remain.

Hopefully you can learn from this sad experience and protect your own blog. Better safe than sorry right? I know I'm going to review my site with these tips in mind.

G+ Tip I learned today:

The Introduction section of both a personal profile or page has a rich text editor which means you can add links to various parts of your website complete with anchor text of your choice.

I'm sure there's plenty of people doing this already but it was news to me and a very handy tip for those just starting out their G+ pages. 

I used it on the Servisource Recruitment page below. Please consider giving the page a +1 if you found this useful :)

Finding this really handy today. I just assume my tags look good and are easy to read, but when I look through this there's things which need to change.

Yes I've actually asked the web company to sort out the H1 tag (that's how limited my permissions are on that page). I knew the meta tags in the header are a bit OTT but didn't think that would effect things too much

Yet another reason why I want to get back to London soon and visit all the free museums! Unfortunately everything else in London is ridiculously expensive.
 
We’re excited to announce that Web Lab, a series of five Chrome Experiment installations that bring the magic of the web to life, is now live in beta. 

Open to the world at http://www.chromeweblab.com and live from the Science Museum, London, over the course of this year-long exhibition, you’ll be able to interact with the experiments in-person or through the interactive HTML5 website.

Come explore Web Lab, and share your feedback to help us make the online and museum experience even better during this initial beta.

This is sad.
 
One bit of the Undersea Voyager interview http://bit.ly/JgiEgZ that struck me was this:

"Now, after 20 years of diving with many great white sharks, I can tell you that they are individuals with personality! I have swam with 3,500lb sharks and tickled their bellies, ridden on their backs, and petted them. I have learned to love them and see them much like folks see family dogs. They are nothing but animals and most of the time, harmless. More folks die from family dog attacks than white shark attacks.

"We must leave our preconceived notions behind us and grow up! The only true monsters are men. Over 73 million sharks are killed just for shark-fin soup. That is over 200,000 per day! Last month a shark I loved for 20 years was murdered for her fins and jaws. Her 60-year long life ended for $1,800. Her 3,000lb body rots on a Baja beach, and I miss her."

When I was in Baja recently, I too was horrified to see the number of sharks killed for their fins and left on the beach. Sad.
