Below is a short summary of the main differentiators between U2F security keys and traditional smart card- and hardware-based authentication devices:

⇨  No need for drivers, client software and middleware – Uses native drivers and built-in support directly into the browser. No installation, no configuration – just works !

⇨  Highly scalable while protecting your privacy - Generates a new set of encryption keys for every service, that is only stored on the specific service it connects to. With this approach no secrets are shared among service providers, and even low-cost security keys can support any number of services.

⇨  Great user experience – To register and authenticate, all it takes is a simple touch of a button!

"The Copyblogger Google+ community’s statistics blow Facebook away by miles. Twitter is an amazing platform at both the brand level and for many of the individuals in the company (plus, you retweet posts like nobody’s business).

And we’re grateful.

Which is why Copyblogger is going to continue putting its energy into those outlets and the Copyblogger membership communities (free and paid)..."

Once in a Lifetime: The Full Finnish Sauna Experience

"Not so fresh off the plane from Helsinki, the minute I landed in Kuusamo I was whisked away to experience none other than the quintessential Finnish ritual – The Finnish Sauna. 

In the Western World we would consider sauna and spa time an indulgence… but this couldn’t be further from the truth in Finland. The Finnish Sauna is a mandatory part of your existence – a staple in any Finn’s daily life. 

So here I was, fresh off the plane from Helsinki and ready to experience my first real sauna experience…"

More than 70 years ago, the American writer and lecturer Dale Carnegie published a transcendent book on people skills entitled “How to Win Friends and Influence People.”

To this day, Mr. Carnegie’s many nuggets of wisdom ring largely true, because more than anything else they speak to human nature, which for better or worse seems to change very little over time.

In the modern age of the Internet and social content sharing, we can still look to age-old truths in deciphering a code to grow an audience (win friends) and successfully market online content via social media (influence people).

Here are ten of these truths …

It's hard to tell what Dale Carnegie would make of the Internet or social media, but you can bet the insight he had in dealing with people and selling himself would still be valid.

Many of you may be familiar with the Moomins:  There's a new movie out. Not perhaps for the tiniest children, this film reflects the author Tove Jansson's own family trip to Riviera.

The official teaser for Moomins in the Riviera:

"What do you think: can you study to be a leader?

Or is it something else? You might have seen leaders and ‘leaders.’

Certainly, great leaders need skills that can be obtained and learned. But a truly great leader needs something else that is not easily defined.
We had a rare opportunity to interview Jim Collins, the creator of Level 5 Leadership, to dig deeper into the issue..."

PS: Has someone found Jim Collins on any social media platform?

Community membership:

You can use your profile to share the Google+ communities that you’ve joined.

Tip: You can choose to show all your community memberships, but if you’re in more than 30 communities, you can only show 30 memberships at a time. If you’d like to choose which 30 show on your profile, use your settings to pick which communities can be seen.

To see if your communities are being shown, you can check your profile. If they are, and you don’t want people to see them, you can take them off your profile or choose which ones you want to be shown. And if you’d like your communities shown on your profile, but they aren’t there, you can add them.

Important:

Private communities: If you’re in a private community, your membership can’t be seen by everyone.

It’ll be limited to other members of that community and people invited to that community.

Joining new communities:
If all your community memberships are shown on your profile (and you didn't select every community one by one), the communities that you join in the future will also be shown on your profile.
But if you've selected which community memberships can be seen on your profile, new communities that you join won’t be shown until you add them.

Out of the 97 communities I belong to I'm only showing 20 - and of course my own communities are at the top. :-)
They're in alphabetical order in the list so it's easy to display the ones you wish.
