why small business owners should consider getting an app


as a small business owner, asking “why should i create an app?” is a lot like asking “do i really need a website?” was a few years ago. sure, it was (and still is) possible to do much of what you need using a facebook page, but they’re just not built to do what a website can.while a facebook page can, for example, show opening times, it’s not so easy to offer a detailed breakdown of lunch, dinner and a la carte menus. in that respect, facebook pages are to websites as mobile websites/responsive sites are to mobile apps; they get the job done, just about, but you generally can’t use them to do everything that you’d like to.this post will cover a few of the advantages of creating your own app as opposed to using a responsive site or, even worse, not doing anything with mobile...

showtime websites used visitors’ browsers to mine cryptocurrency


it's unclear who introduced the javascript into the websites -- it could've been a hacker, it could've been showtime or its parent company cbs, though the latter seems less likely. but the monero-mining scripts were written by a company called coinhive, which provides this kind of code so that webmasters can choose to generate some revenue without having to resort to ads. the pirate bay did this recently. coinhive told theregister, "we can't give out any specific information about the account owner as per our privacy terms. we don't know much about these keys or the user they belong to anyway."the mining code is now gone from the websites and showtime doesn't seem to want to talk about the incident. as for coinhive, which seems to be perturbed by websites using its code without let...

conference - business cards for a postdoc: what affiliation?


business cards themselves are not a terribly common practice for postdocs in my field (some combination of biology, physics, others). i think i've been handed one at a conference maybe once or twice. i don't have a simple answer, but here are the factors i'd think about:1) don't put her institutional email on it, because it will expire quickly once she leaves - it's better to use a [professional-sounding] external one. (similar factors can apply to university websites, but they've been better in my experience.)2) consider how likely it is that she'll use the entire run of 100 or so cards in the next year, before having to change the affiliation.3) i would probably not list an affiliation that isn't current on a business card. she may, however, list that affiliation in the conferenc...
