WHIR Networking Events Comes Home to Toronto

For those of you who keep up with the WHIR Networking Events schedule, you know that we are in cities around the U.S. throughout the year. But I have to admit, it is so nice when we host an event in Toronto so we can meet our attendees and sponsors in our own backyard.

Last Thursday night we had the opportunity to host a networking event at the Pravda Vodka Bar, and there was an incredible turnout of folks working in web hosting, data centers, software as a service, finance, and more. We have to thank our sponsors for their role in supporting our event, without whom none of it would be possible, so thank you Lenovo, ServerMania and MERGE. Our sponsors not only provide the complimentary drinks and food at each event, but also show up with some can’t-miss prizes that we give away to lucky attendees:

  • Lenovo gave away a Yoga Tab 3 Pro to Jeff Woo, Production Manager at weare1188 Creative Studio
  • ServerMania gave away Sony XB650BT Extra Bass Wireless Headphones to John Saleh, President & CEO of IT Tailors
  • MERGEgave away a pass to its conference in Orlando from October 14 – 18, 2017 to Kiera Howe, CTO of Wiley Solutions

Thank you so much to everyone who made it out to the event, and for those of you in the Denver area, mark your calendars because we’ll be in your city on September 28, so RSVP free today.

What Do We Lose When We Give Up The Open Internet?

Those of us who have been using the web since the early days remember a different experience to those who grew up in the age of Facebook, Tumblr, Medium, and other publishing platforms that aim to “eat the web”.

Back then, blogging felt truly radical. People from all walks of life felt that the web gave them a voice they’d never had before. They could publish their thoughts and form communities without oversight and without interference from organizations whose interests impose subtle — and not so subtle — constraints on what can be said and what content should look like.

It was an era of bold experimentation, and WordPress, although it came somewhat later to the party than other blogging software, is one of the few remaining publishing platforms that consciously focuses on giving ordinary non-technical users the power to create their own space on the web.


Why Is The WordPress REST API Such A Big Deal?

In 2017, WordPress is more popular than ever, but for the niche that it traditionally occupied — bloggers and small publishers — there’s a strong pull towards platforms like Facebook and Medium that make it even easier to publish. They provide the network effects of a large platform with millions of users. And they provide a pleasant — if anodyne — writing experience.

But in exchange, I think we lose a lot.

On a self-hosted WordPress site, the space is ours to publish what we want, to make money from it how we want, and to build a community entirely independent of the auspices of other interests. As we watch a company like Medium, fueled thus far by venture capital, struggle to find a business model to keep it alive, it’s worth pondering what will happen to the fragile communities, relationships, publications, and content that it hosts.

When I look through the front-page of publishing platforms, I’m struck by the homogeneous nature of the content that bubbles to the top. On any given day, it seems much of the content could have been written by the same person, so similar are the sentiments expressed and the topics chosen.

And of course, it all looks the same too. The same design, typography, images that come from the same free image sites.

One of the most exciting things about the new WordPress API will be to see how developers take on the renewed challenge of building new experiences for the front and the back end. In the coming years, WordPress will be transformed, becoming the backbone of an ecosystem of web applications that take full advantage of the capabilities of modern web technologies.

I’m hopeful that in time, small publishers who have chosen to put all their eggs in a publishing platform’s basket will make their way back to platforms like WordPress. Platforms that allow them to build a unique experience to amplify unique voices.

Just FYI, Raw Oysters Are Alive Until You Eat Them

You know those oysters that you’re admiring on the half shell, the ones served on ice that you’re getting ready to squirt with fresh lemon to slurp back? We think you should know that those slimy guys are still alive.

This should be common knowledge, but it’s surprisingly not. And it may sound gross, but it’s actually a good thing because when those raw oysters die, they are no longer safe to eat. A dead oyster can harbor large numbers of bacteria, which can make you ill if eaten raw. 

So when exactly do oysters die after after you put them in your mouth? This is an issue that has been heavily debated, and the verdict is still out.

Julie Qiu, an oyster expert who pens the blog In A Half Shell, says oysters probably die when the meat is separated from the shell, because the oyster’s heart is right next to the bottom adductor muscle. That would mean that they aren’t technically still alive when you throw them down the hatch. 

But whether the oyster’s death happens so swiftly is unclear ― one could speculate that the final moment doesn’t actually happen until the oyster comes in contact with the chomp of some hefty molars, or the acids in our stomachs. 

But don’t fret, oysters aren’t the only thing people eat when alive ― sea urchins, shrimp and even octopus also make the list (though we often eat those foods cooked, too). 

Either way, make sure you know how to shuck an oyster if you want the freshest experience possible. And be sure to consider your oysters.

Good Samaritan Saves Tangled ‘Squirrel King’ From Certain Misery

No, you’re not nuts. Those four squirrels were totally stuck together.

A man in Maine took nature into his own hands on Sunday when he protected this so-called “squirrel king” from a cat, trapped the squirrels in a box, and eventually freed them from their fuzzy knot.

Andrew Day, of Bangor, was visiting his parents when the critters caught his eye. He went outside to discover the four little squirrels tangled together by their tails, as well as a nearby house cat who perhaps was preparing for lunch, according to the Bangor Daily News.

“So we got the cat away,” Day told the newspaper. “And we got the squirrels sort of collectively — as a creepy squirrel pinwheel — by a tree.” 

Day recorded the video above, which shows the four squirrels struggling to move as one.

It’s a pinwheel, made of squirrels.

Day called Bangor Animal Control, but since it was Sunday, nobody answered. He then called the Bangor police, who directed him to the local game warden. The game warden could not arrive for at least an hour, so Day took matters into his own hands.

He trapped the squirrels in a cardboard box and delicately worked to free them. Eventually, each squirrel became unattached. Once the game warden arrived, they were released to reunite with the mother squirrel.

News reports did not specify how the squirrels became tangled in the first place.

“It was like a giant dreadlock,” Day told the Bangor Daily News. “Intertwined with it was straw and twigs and there was some plastic.”
