Cyber Monday Breaks Records in Sales and Uptime


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!

Josh Long on Creativity and Entrepreneurship

“I don’t think it’s really a question of what types of problems I want to solve, as much as it is creating a framework for people to solve any problems.”

Was really honored to have the chance to interview Josh Long, a friend and inspirational creative entrepreneur. We’ve been fans and supporters of his work for a while, and this interview sheds some light as to why.

Coding is a tool for youth leadership development, not just a need for the future

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.
