Whether you like it or not, Online security is essential and simply part of our all encumbering digital centric lives we have created for ourselves. From our work or private email account to the mobile app store we use or a social media platform or our Internet banking account, we all need and depend on some level of Online security and trust (to varying degrees) the people behind the services we use daily. These services require us to use a password to access our accounts and profiles and herein lies the conundrum; password complexity and the ability to remember them are indirectly proportional to one another. And that is a problem.
In order to try and find the 'sweet spot' between having a password that scores well in terms of its complexity and strength, while still being able to easily memories it, I have worked on various methods to do so. Here is one such example which shows how to create (and remember) a 16 character password.
Crowdfunding is an amazing concept. Crowdfunding solves many obstacles that often prevent people's creative ideas from ever becoming a reality. Crowdfunding is also disruptive. Crowdfunding has significantly altered the way concepts and ideas make their way to market and this has had a noticeable impact on many industries.
2015 was a fantastic year for creators and backers alike. The shear number of projects launched, the volume of successful campaigns and the total monies raised was staggering and very encouraging. Creating a single list of the best crowdfunded projects of 2015 was near impossible so here I have opted for lists of top projects from 2015 in various categories ranging from coffee projects to video games, denim projects to IoTs and tabletop projects to photography.
'Leading Millennials through mentorship with social media' is the subject of my presentation I recently made for a local leadership conference for Bidvest Namibia (a leading Namibian services, trading and distribution company listed on the Namibian Stock Exchange (NSX) who employs more than 3,200 people).
From my experience and research I have found that Millennials seek fulfilment in meaning, are driven by purpose and are motivated by their passion. Leading through mentorship is a key way to attract, engage and retain Millenials within any organisations workforce and Social Media provides the idea environment for this to take place.
In a world that is rapidly becoming a postliterate society (a hypothetical society in which multimedia technology has advanced to the point where literacy, the ability to read or write, is no longer necessary or common) infographics have become a key method of displaying big data in a very visual and relevant way.
The big data collected from millennials and that represents this unique generation, is ideally displayed in infographics and here are the top ten Millennial related infographics.
