Working in hosting for more than a decade, we waited (and tried to capitalize) on a roundup of “Cyber Monday downtime” stories where online retailers suffered crushing loads and massive revenue loss.
2014 is the year every CTO, site administrator, front end dev and data center manager involved in building/planning online retail sites deserve a slow clap!
Search ‘Cyber Monday Downtime’ and note page 1 consists of hosting content titled similarly to “Preparing for the Holiday Crush”.
On the surface, this means the maturity of cloud and hybrid hosting eco-system, along side a deeper understanding of efficient front end development and database management, has finally caught up to the demand of modern web traffic.
So KUDOS to you internet warriors.. you unsung uptime heroes!

Coming this Friday…
I have the pleasure of announcing that the final edition of 8Faces magazine will be available to order this Friday, 6th June.
8Faces is packed with informative articles and interviews with high-profile type people, and this final issue is no exception.
Our 8 interviewees are:
- Fiona Ross
- Jeremy Leslie
- Jan Middendorp
- Robert Slimbach
- Elliot Jay Stocks
- Pintassilgo Prints (This issues’s design duo)
About 8Faces: If you could use just eight typefaces, which would you choose? 8 Faces is a magazine that asks this question — and many more — to eight leading designers from the fields of print, web, illustration, and of course type design itself.
Eighty-eight pages of in-depth interviews, critical essays, and inspiration from the very best in the business. We pride ourselves on producing a printed magazine that you’ll want to keep on your bookshelf. Our covers are adorned with our foil-blocked silver logo and each issue is an experiment with an attention-grabbing new printing technique.

I’m loving this post by Keir Whitaker on the (mt) Blog. Took a few months to get together, but one of the best yet.

Urbantxt is an organization I was forunate to meet and interview for (mt) at the SXSW V2V Festival.. They’re doing really awesome things mentoring underprivileged youth in LA using Coding as the tool. We look forward to working with this organization in the future.
When we dive into coding our 7th through 11th grade young men tend to say it’s “too difficult”, “intimidating” or “confusing.” A select few start off their days in computer programming with “woah, that’s cool.”
No matter what the reaction is, their efforts under our guidance in URBAN Teens eXploring Technology result in web and mobile products that improve communities. And they are built in 10 weeks or less. “How do you guys do it?” is one of the first questions people ask.
The answer is simple. Coding is the tool, leadership development is the end goal. We don’t see coding as just selectors, file directories, or languages.
At URBAN TxT, we see coding as the catalyst that can take young men of color and turn them into technology leaders who build positive communities. To us, computer programming is the tool that helps our teens learn how to learn, to develop discipline, and to build confidence.
