 “Sometimes we may experience a tectonic shift in thinking or understanding, sometimes not. But the personal and intellectual connections we make in the process more than repay our effort.”

Phishing Schemes

Phishing is an e-mail fraud method in which the perpetrator sends out legitimate-looking email in an attempt to gather personal and financial information from recipients. Typically, the messages appear to come from well known and trustworthy Web sites. Our local bank was the victim in a recent phishing scandal (TechTarget). Phishing emails typically ask users to click through to a website where they are asked to update personal information that are already on file with the organization that the user has already provided. Examples include passwords, credit card numbers, social security numbers, and/or bank account numbers (Webopedia).

  • 6.1 Billion phishing e-mails sent world-wide each month.
  • The Federal Trade Commission reports that the average loss to each person successfully phished is $1,200.00.

Digital Storytelling Gets a Boost with CNN’s Great Big Story

great big story logoCNN Launches Storytelling Network, Great Big Story
At midnight Tuesday, CNN and Turner flipped the switch on Great Big Story, a startup storytelling network. ?€?It was conceived as a way to reach new audiences in new ways, with an authentic and original voice,?€? said co-founder Andrew Morse, who oversees digital and newsgathering for CNN. (Source: TVNewser)

Great Big Story, or GBS, is a video network whose mission is to produce content that goes deeper than the cat videos and fluffy lists of other millennial-targeted websites. Despite the backing of CNN and its parent Turner Broadcasting, however, the site is decidedly not a news network. GBS will release three to five non-fiction videos per day of untold stories about new frontiers, the human condition, planet Earth, and tastes and flavors. (Source: AdAge)

GBS will distribute its content via a website and apps for both iOS and Android devices. But its tales will also show up on Facebook, YouTube, Apple News, Snapchat and more as November gets underway. The start-up, which is not formally part of CNN, will also tap connected TVs through Apple TV, Roku, Amazon and Chromecast, among others. (Source: Variety)
