    Bryan Ruby: Social Media Killed My Family Website

    For the first time in 15 years, my family doesn't have a website to call their own. In January 2000, I registered the domain Bryansplace.com. This was the first website I ever built outside of work and it became a sandbox for me to express my interests as well as a way to seek personal growth. From handwritten HTML pages into Frontpage to a number of CMSs, the software and content at Bryansplace evolved as my life evolved.

    Bryansplace.com was the website where my girlfriend and I announced our marriage to the world. As a married couple, we eventually publicly announced the birth of our son via the site. This domain was the site where I talked about camping, computers, and my latest beer recipes. It wasn't all about me either. My wife showcased her photography for the first time online via  our family website. This was also the website my son learned how to navigate the Drupal content management system and talk about his gaming skills. Bryansplace.com was synonymous with "family news". Despite how much I valued the domain, last week I unceremoniously killed the website.

    TYPO3 is encouraging its users to upgrade to the latest LTS version TYPO3 CMS 6.2, which they believe serves as the best basis for existing and new sites running with TYPO3 CMS. Only recently has TYPO3 updated their release cycle process which also gives us a glimpse of what to expect with TYPO3 CMS 7 and beyond.

  • Drupal Security: Not Shocking but Responsible

    Drupal Security: Not Shocking but Responsible

    Over the years, I've made it an unwritten policy not to sensationalize bug fixes and security vulnerabilities in content management systems. While there may be great interest in such stories, I believe such stories have a tendency to cause more harm than good. When sensationalized, such articles tend to cause customers to address security concerns with emotion instead of logic which is never a good thing. So, when the security vulnerability known as "Drupageddon" broke and Drupal developer Bevan Rudge posted "Your Drupal website has a backdoor", I knew this story was going to eventually reach mainstream media. In the meantime, I've been struggling on how best to write this article and what story need to be told.

  • 90% of Holiday Shoppers Expect Consistent Brand Experiences According to SDL Survey

    Ninety percent of consumers said they expect the customer experience to be consistent across channels and devices used to interact with brands this holiday shopping season, according to a new global study of more than 3,000 consumers by SDL. This is a growing expectation from shoppers, representing a 17 percent increase from what consumers reported last year.

    Considering that half of holiday shoppers use their mobile devices to research possible gifts before purchasing them in-store and 6 in 10 holiday shoppers do at least some showrooming – going to stores to evaluate products but then purchasing online – brands should make it a priority that the customer experience is consistent across channels and devices, something many consumers have reported frustrations with.
