Your behavior is packed with data that can be utilized to maximize your digital security. IBM researchers are looking at the unique behaviors of individuals to develop the next generation of privacy and protection. They predict that in five years, a “digital guardian” will protect you online. As a result, security will no longer be dependent on vulnerable modes of protection like passwords, but will be automatic and made stronger through us just being us. Check out the video here.

The debate - Unfriend or Unfollow? It’s happening on Facebook. After a long wait, you will soon be able to unfollow friends whose updates you’d like to remove from your newsfeed. The new feature will replace the “Hide All” button, freeing your Facebook newsfeed of the unwanted or meaningless rants by your friends. The “Unfollow Button” will be available to desktop users in the coming weeks and on Facebook’s mobile apps for iOS and Android next year.

Exploring the 2013 Serpentine Pavilion on Instagram
For more photos and videos from this year’s Pavilion, explore the Serpentine Pavilion by Sou Fujimoto location page.
Since the year 2000, London’s Serpentine Gallery (@serpentineuk) has invited a different notable architect to design a structure—the Pavilion—on their lawn to showcase contemporary architectural practice. While past invitees include legendary Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer and Chinese artist Ai Weiwei (@aiww), this year’s architect is 41-year-old Sou Fujimoto—the youngest architect to receive a Serpentine commission yet. Fujimoto has constructed a 350 square-meter structure made of delicately latticed steel poles that questions the relationship between architecture and nature.
Recently, the Gallery also commissioned London-based studio United Visual Artists (UVA) and creative agency My Beautiful City (@mybeautifulcity) to install a series of LED lights throughout the pavilion for the 2013 Summer Party. For the event, the lights flashed and pulsated to mimic the electrical charges active within a storm cloud while a perfectly synchronized soundtrack of electrical buzzing and rolling thunder brought the experience to life.
Off the beaten … Path is one social platform in particular Indonesian’s love more than others. The nation comprises 17,508 islands in Southeast Asia and is the third-largest country in Path’s 12-million-person global network. We checked in January of this year and over 40% of all Path users are Indonesian. The US-based social network is working with Indonesia’s local Sony Mobile Communications to pre-install the app on the new Xperia Z Ultra mobile units. In addition, the company is in talks with local telecommunication providers to help boost popularity in the country. Indonesians are connected and social individuals, at least digitally. Ask any Indonesian with his/her face in front of a mobile device and chances are they are updating their ‘Path.’ We will continue to monitor the situation, considering nearly all our friends and colleagues are actively using the network. -SI
