Kick off 2018 with online safety tips from Microsoft’s Council for Digital Good – Microsoft on the Issues

To get everyone off on the right digital foot in 2018, Microsoft’s teen Council for Digital Good offers 15 pieces of guidance, designed to make online interactions safer and healthier by emphasizing resilience, mindfulness and digital civility.

We assembled this impressive group of U.S.-based youth as part of a pilot program, launched in 2017. The 15-member council serves as a sounding board for Microsoft’s youth-focused, online safety policy work. The council met for a two-day summit in August, and will convene again later this year. Last summer, each teen drafted a written manifesto for life online, and then returned home to take on three more assignments: (1) an artistic representation of their individual manifestos, (2) a consolidated written manifesto from the entire cohort, and (3) a visual representation of the cohort manifesto.

Council for Digital Good We thought the start of the new year was a fitting time to share the council’s inspiring words.

The 15-point cohort manifesto

After conference calls, email and social media, each teen selected guidance from his or her individual manifesto thought to be instructive and compelling. “Our (process) worked almost exactly like a democracy,” says Bronte, a 17-year-old council member from Ohio, who submitted the cohort manifesto on behalf of the council. “We would pitch ideas about what manifesto ideas we had, go into detail, and then vote on which we liked best. In the end, we all had a good time working together. We learned a lot about ourselves, and got to know more about a fellow teen from a couple of states away.”

Here are the individual pieces of guidance from each council member, which we’ve grouped into three broad categories: “skills, advice and perspective.” You can find the full cohort manifesto and view some additional context from each council member at this link.

Skills – Some important competencies for life online 

  • Build and repair resilience to ensure young people can bounce back from unpleasant online experiences.
  • Pause and think before sending or posting.
  • Your online profile represents YOU so, be sure to present yourself in the best possible and truthful light.
  • Be a skeptic and question the actions and motivations of others.
  • Instill morals and teach children ethics and etiquette online; it will serve them well online and in adulthood.

 Advice – Additional points that highlight the need for “skills” and “perspective”  

  • Wait until you’re 13 and meet the age requirements to use social media.
  • Take off the mask and be online who you are in real life.
  • Disagree respectfully rather than by lashing out.
  • Your voice and report [to trusted authorities] matter, so take advantage of tech companies’ resources for reporting illegal or harmful content and conduct.
  • Use the power of the internet to empower others.

 Perspective – Thoughts for maintaining a healthy online outlook   

  • Your screen is 2D while real life is 3D – What’s online can fall flat, so always consider context and other factors.
  • Don’t be a prisoner to your cellphone by letting online interactions control your life.
  • Posts affect you and your family, so remember, once you hit send, there’s no taking them back.
  • No, you’re not getting a free iPhone – If a deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
  • Focus on the life you live and don’t let technology dominate daily activities.

The teens have offered some great counsel to help everyone lead safer, more productive and more fun-filled lives online. Leading up to international Safer Internet Day on Feb. 6, we’ll be showcasing the teens’ individual “Twitter moments” – the creative manifesto from the full council – where they each discuss their recommended point of guidance. Look for these on social media over the coming weeks.

A vision and mission for the council

In addition to the cohort manifesto, the teens went beyond their specific assignment and drafted an additional vision document, detailing how they see their individual roles on the council, their mission as a team and the impact they want to have.

“We need a ‘youth-inspired revolution’ as there is no silver bullet solution,” the cohort writes. “This is a global issue that requires a global response by everyone: parents, educators, technology companies and government. As the inaugural cohort, the council has devoted our time to advocating for issues around healthy online behaviors.”

The paper goes on to say how the teens will use social media and reach out to youth in their communities to raise awareness of online safety issues and grow support for meaningful programs and initiatives. “This will, in turn, force the hand of school administrations, community leaders, managers or anyone in an authoritative position, to ensure preventative measures are taken. We aim to see a generation of more empathetic young people … After our [term] is up, future council members will build on what we have achieved to create a lasting global movement. From the entirety of the council, to the entire world, everyone deserves and has a right to a safe experience online.” (Read the full council vision document here.)

Looking ahead in 2018

At Microsoft, we characterize these efforts as fostering “digital civility” by promoting safer and healthier online interactions for everyone. We’re driven to grow a kinder, more empathetic and respectful online world, and in this quest, we know we’ve chosen some outstanding partners in this remarkable group of teens.

We look forward to our next in-person event with the council this summer. We’re planning a more public event to discuss some important online safety issues, and we’re asking the teens to share their views with law- and policy-makers and other influentials, as we convene in our nation’s capital.

In the meantime, we’re readying our next round of digital civility research, which will be released on Safer Internet Day 2018 on Feb. 6. Much like the findings we announced in 2017, we’ve polled both teens and adults about their exposure to a range of online risks and forms of abuse. This year, we’re releasing research from 23 countries, up from 14 last year. We’ve also added a few more risks to the study, and some of the results are rather surprising.

Until then, you can follow the Council for Digital Good on our Facebook page and via Twitter using #CouncilforDigitalGood. To learn more about online safety generally, visit our website and resources page; “like” us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.

Frost Science Museum IT DR planning braced for worst, survived Irma

When you open a large public facility right on the water in Miami, a good disaster recovery setup is an essential task for an IT team. Hurricane Irma’s assault on Florida in September 2017 made that clear to the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science team.

The expected Category 5 hurricane moving in on Florida had the new Frost Science Museum square in its sights. Irma turned out to be less threatening to Miami than feared, and the then-4-month-old building suffered no major damage. Still, the museum’s vice president of technology said he felt prepared for the worst with his IT DR planning.

When preparing to open the museum on a 250,000-square-foot location on the Miami waterfront, technology chief Brooks Weisblat installed a new Dell EMC SAN in a fully redundant data center and set up a colocation site in Atlanta as part of its disaster recovery plan. The downgraded Category 4 hurricane dumped water into the building, but did no serious damage and caused no downtime.

Frost Science Museum's Brooks WeisblatBrooks Weisblat

The new Frost Science Museum building features three diesel generators and redundant power, including 20 minutes of backup power in the battery room that should provide enough juice until the backup generators come online. While much of southern Florida lost power during Irma, the museum did not.

“We’re sitting right on the water. It was supposed to be a major hurricane coming straight through Miami. But six hours before hitting, it veered off, so it wasn’t a direct hit,” Weisblat said. “We have two weather stations on the building, and we recorded force winds of 90 to 95 miles per hour. It could have been 190 mile-per-hour winds, and that would have been a different story.”

Advance warning of the hurricane prompted the museum’s team to bolster its IT DR planning.

“The hurricane moved us to get all of our backups in order,” Weisblat said. “Opening the building was intensive. We had backups internally, but we didn’t have off-site backups yet. It pushed us to get a colocated data center in Atlanta when the hurricane warnings came about a week before. At least we had a lot of advance notice for this one. Except for some water here and there, the museum did well.”

The Frost Science Museum raised $330 million in funding to build the new center in downtown Miami, closing its Coconut Grove site in August 2015. Museum organizers said they hoped to attract 750,000 visitors in the first year at the new site. From its May opening through Oct. 31, more than 525,000 people visited the museum.

Shifting to SAN, all-flash

When moving, Frost Science installed a dual-controller Dell EMC SC9000 — formerly Compellent — all-flash array, with 112 TB of capacity connected to 10 Dell EMC PowerEdge servers virtualized with VMware. As part of its IT DR planning, the museum uses Veeam Software to back up virtual machines to a Dell PowerEdge R530 server, with 40 TB of hard disk drive storage on site, and it replicates those backups to another PowerEdge server in the Atlanta location.

The hurricane moved us to get all of our backups in order.
Brooks Weisblatvice president of technology, Frost Science Museum

“If something happens at this site, we’re able to launch a limited number of VMs to power finance, ticketing and reporting,” Weisblat said. “We can control those servers out of Atlanta if we’re unable to get into the building.”

Before opening the new building, Weisblat’s team migrated all VMs between the old and new sites. The process took three weeks. “We had to take down services, copy them to drives a few miles away, then bring those into the new environment and do an import into a new VM cluster,” he said.

The data center sits on the third floor of the new building, 60 feet above sea level. It takes up 16 full cabinets, plus eight racks for networking, Weisblat said.

Frost Science Museum had no SAN in the old building. Its IT ran on 23 servers. Weisblat said he migrated the stand-alone servers into the VMware cluster on the Compellent array before moving. “That way, when the new system came online, it would be easy to move those servers over as files, and we would not have to do migrations into VMware in the new building during the crush time for our opening,” he said.

The Dell EMC SAN runs all critical applications, including the customer relationship management system, exhibit content management, property management system software, the museum website, online ticketing and building security management systems. The security system controls electricity, lights, solar power, centralized antivirus deployments and network access control. “Everything is powered off this one system,” Weisblat said.

The SAN has two Brocade — now Broadcom — Fibre Channel switches for redundancy. “We can unplug hosts; everything keeps running,” Weisblat said. “We can unplug one of the storage arrays, and everything keeps running. The top-of-rack 10-gig [Extreme Avaya Ethernet] switches are also fully redundant. We can lose one of those.”

He said since installing the new array, one solid-state drive went out. “The SSD sent us an alert, and Dell had parts to us in two hours. Before I knew something was wrong, they contacted me.”

Whether it’s a failed SSD or an impending hurricane, early alerts and IT DR planning certainly help when dealing with disasters.

Take the pain out of software developer hiring

Are you hiring the right kind of software developer?

That might seem like a ridiculous question considering developers are in short supply around the world. In fact, a recent survey on software developer hiring highlighted the high demand for developers. On average, developers get 11 headhunter calls a year. But with the explosion of low-code/no-code development platforms, a rapidly changing technology landscape and a strong move to DevOps, it’s more important than ever that the assembled developer team fits the job description.

In the old days, it was enough to know a developer had programming chops and knowledge of the latest tools. Today, everything from communication skills to experience on the business side, an ability to integrate and a deep understanding of user experience all need to be on the résumé. And that’s just for starters.

What’s not necessarily on that résumé is a computer science degree. Jeffrey Hammond, a principal analyst at Forrester Research, pointed out that he’s seeing more and more developers at conferences without traditional development backgrounds. Part of the reason is the tools that make it easier than ever to code — low-code/no-code platforms — and part of it is that the job of the developer itself is changing.

“Salesforce is building a community of developers right now without traditional backgrounds,” he explained. So a key question to ask yourself about software developer hiring is whether those traditional backgrounds are really what will get the job done in your organization.

Also keep in mind whether you need truly custom software. In the recent Harvey Nash 2017 Technology Survey, 47% of the 3,000 participants said custom software is in decline. Even two years ago, that thought would have been dismissed as crazy. But between low-code/no-code platforms, easy access to APIs and the move to microservices, the idea of using building blocks created by others and essentially rearranging them to make new software is no longer far-fetched.

If a custom product doesn’t add value to your organization, then why choose — and pay a huge premium for — a full-fledged developer? Instead, you’ll want to look for someone who is more of an integrator, comfortable with weaving bits and pieces together to create the right solution. That person often won’t have a traditional development background, but on the flip side, you’ll avoid paying the higher salary — or “hiring tax” — for a software developer.

Everything from communication skills to experience on the business side, an ability to integrate and a very good knowledge of user experience all need to be on the résumé.

Sometimes, you’ll need serious development chops, but only for a particular job. That’s what happened to Lucy Warner, CEO at the U.K.’s National Health Service (NHS) Practitioner Health Programme. Her users are NHS doctors looking for physicians to treat them, but they don’t want to go to a close working colleague or a former fellow medical school student. She needed an app that would let them find local doctors but with sufficient information to ensure they’d feel comfortable with their choice. And she wanted to use the “swipe right, swipe left” interface that’s become ubiquitous.

The only problem is her IT team didn’t have the skills to make this happen. She reached out to low-code platform maker Out Systems and a third-party development team from Portugal that had already created about 70% of the type of app that she wanted. In nine weeks, the app was up and running. “It was fantastic,” Warner said. “We didn’t have to hire a single staffer or look for more space. And our patients love it; the feedback is wonderful.”

For companies in the throes of software developer hiring and needing classic development skills, it’s still important to match the business need with the skill set. Despite the custom development pessimism, the Harvey Nash survey indicated that 36% of respondents believe this type of development will continue to grow. But the survey also suggested that custom software development won’t necessarily be used across the board — 56% said it’s going to be used to drive innovation. And for those respondents already working for “highly innovative companies,” the percentage jumped to 67%.

Likewise, keep in mind that DevOps and its probable successor BizDevOps tweak developer requirements substantially. Even with software developer hiring today in DevOps shops, Forrester’s Hammond is seeing a split between front-end and back-end developers. In a BizDevOps team, the lines could be drawn even finer. His bottom line: Get ready for a time of intense specialization when it comes to the development team.

But also be ready to know software developer hiring will remain competitive, perhaps indefinitely. “Businesses embracing technology and those who choose to be digital-product focused need strong engineers to help them execute ideas,” said David Savage, associate director of Harvey Nash. “[T]he need to compete also sees increased importance on being different from peers.”

For Sale – Components clear out

The condition isn’t perfect, there are a few scratches and the wires from the switch and LED on the front have been bend 90degrees to get them under a fan. They still work but are delicate – I snapped two of them and had to solder them back together. If they break you will need to rewire the ends. Price reflects condition, as this is a £190 case.

EVGA 980 Hybrid 4GB – £200
Few small dinks in the radiator fins. There is a soft material that covers the pipes that was removed as it was fraying.
Intel Core i7 5820K s2011 v3 – £150
Unboxed but will be in plastic CPU clamshell and otherwise well packed. No pics but its a CPU, can provide them if you need them.

They still work but are delicate – I snapped two of them and had to solder them back together. If they break you will need to rewire the ends. Price reflects condition, as this is a £190 case.

EVGA 980 Hybrid 4GB – £200
Few small dinks in the radiator fins. There is a soft material that covers the pipes that was removed as it was fraying.
Intel Core i7 5820K s2011 v3 – £150
Unboxed but will be in plastic CPU clamshell and otherwise well packed. No pics but its a CPU, can provide them if you need them.

I think thats it for now. Will add a H100i in later, need to grab a photo or two.
