Goodbye Gigaom: You Made Tech News Sparkle


For those of us who read and write about technology, this is a very sad day. Gigaom, which many of us know and love, has shut down.

FBI Warns Businesses to Brace for Foreign Hacker Attacks

The threat of International electronic terrorism appears to be rising, following two separate reports of hacker attacks on US business and government interests.

The FBI issued a warning about a highly destructive malware attack that may be coordinated by a foreign country and could be continuing over the next few weeks, according to a Reuters report. The warning comes in the wake of last week's devastating hacker attack on the Sony Pictures Corp. that kept many of its systems, including corporate email, down for as much as a week.  

In a separate report security firm Cylance noted that it has identified a hacker group out of a Iran — Operation Cleaver.

Jackrabbit Oak Blends 'Performance and Dynamic UX'

There's a good reason for marketers to pay attention to Jackrabbit Oak, the newest version of the Apache Software Foundation's open source content repository — at least according to Chief Technical Officer and Hippo co-founder Arjé Cahn.

"Marketers should not have to choose between performance [in a website] and dynamic user experience," he told CMSWire

Hippo, which has offices in Boston, Mass. and Amsterdam, The Netherlands, offers an open source CMS. It's interested in Jackrabbit Oak because of its potential to help rapidly distribute dynamic content, and some members of the Hippo team have contributed code to the Jackrabbit project.

A content repository, according to the Apache Software Foundation, is "a hierarchical content store with support for structured and unstructured content, full text search, versioning, transactions, observation, and more."

Thismoment Wants Brands to Become Content DJs

To better spin user-generated content (UGC) into gold, content marketer Thismoment has announced its Content Cloud platform for rapidly organizing content into playlists that output as dynamic "cards."

Ankarino Lara, Thismoment's Chief Product Officer and co-founder, told CMSWire that the content on Content Cloud card is sometimes literally viewed as a interactive card, like on Twitter.

New InboundWriter Update Gives Context to Your Content Marketing #CMWorld

A successful content marketing strategy accounts for where content will ultimately be published. To effectively gauge how content will perform, it's essential that you understand how it measures up against your competitors as well as leaders in your industry. After all, there's a big difference between publishing a blog post to a website with a limited reach and publishing an article to a prominent, well-read website with a large audience. Even if you use popular keywords and write strategically about relevant topics, if you're not factoring in the reality of your website's influence, you may be setting your web content up for failure.

UX is Destroying the World! Will UX Come to the Rescue?

My article from last week was a labor of love and I was pleased with the quality of the Twitter response. The big shortcoming of the article, correctly pointed out by my editor, is a shortcoming of my articles in general. It is not even close to accessible to the audience on CMSWire. My use of terms like "reductionism," "monists" and "unary thinkers," while precise and evocative, are not the best choice in terms of audience accessibility. This lack of accessibility from a writing perspective is akin to making a functional site or interface intimidating and lacking in affordance (another fancy UX word).
