Twenty Seventeen ships as the new default theme with WordPress 4.7. This business-oriented theme marks a noteworthy departure from the blog-centric default themes of the past and reflects WordPress’ broader transition from a blogging platform into a platform well-suited to creating all sorts of websites. If you plan to try out Twenty Seventeen you’ll figure something out quickly: this theme is nothing like its predecessors. Past default themes have required only minimal setup and were designed to be functional blog themes right out of the box. This is not the case with Twenty Seventeen.
On 1 October 2016, the IANA functions contract that the United States Government had with ICANN was allowed to expire. This represents the final step in the community-led IANA stewardship transition process that began in 2014.
From today, 1 October 2016, the IANA functions contract officially expired. As a result, the coordination and management of the Internet’s unique identifiers is now privatized and in the hands of the volunteer-based multistakeholder community.
The five Regional Internet Registries have a Service Level Agreement (SLA) in place with IANA that defines our expectations moving forward. A community-selected IANA Numbering Services Review Committee will assist the NRO Executive Council when it conducts periodic reviews of IANA’s services.
Users of the internet will not see any operational difference.
Many small cafes are rethinking free wi-fi in a bid to keep afloat – that is the question asked this week by BBC journalist Dougal Shaw.
Watch his report at http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-37443649
Many of us take free wi-fi in cafes for granted. But there is a trend for smaller ones to experiment with switching it off, in a bid to beat the laptop table-hoggers.
The report features a 2020Media Wi-Fi customer, Tamp coffee in West London. Owner Dorian picked 2020Media as his supplier for Wi-Fi for the reason he lists to Doug Shaw – customers spending too long on their laptops, and so losing seating space for new customers wanting to sit and eat their food or enjoy their coffee. He experimented with turning off the service completely, but faced a backlash on social media.
The Wi-Fi service from 2020Media is ideal for cafes with busy periods where they need to turn tables quickly.
Our service allows the cafe to set up times of day when the customer Wi-Fi isn’t available (but keeping any staff or infrastructure service running).
Another option is to use access codes – A code valid for 1 hour is given to the customer with their order, and once the hour is up, the customer would need to return to the counter to get another – and hopefully make another purchase. Our case study at a central london location gives more details on this solution. A less instrusive version of this can be setup with social media check-in or click through pages that pop-up after a preset number of hours or minutes, which act as a subtle reminder to the customer that they’ve been using the service for a fair period of time.
Most customers and cafe shop owners are in agreement – Wi-Fi is a must and with a properly setup service from 2020Media, it can be a benefit to both the customer and the shop that provides it.
