Emily HayOur social media maven, Emily Hay, founder of Hay There Social Media has some timely tips for your holiday gift shopping.

Everyone knows how important shopping local is, right? It impacts your state/city/region by keeping money and jobs in your community. But did you know that you can use the Internet to shop locally?  You can. It’s easy. Enter Etsy.

Who’s Laughing Now?

Certainly not Sony Pictures!  Apparently North Korea missed the humor in the imminent release of “The Interview”, a comedy film based on the assassination of Kim Jong-un (current dictator) starring Seth Rogan and James Franco.  The country which barely has electricity outside its capital of Pyongyang allegedly unleashed a sophisticated cyber attack that brought Sony Pictures to its knees and stole movie budgets, salary information, Social Security numbers, health care files, unreleased films, and more. At one point, the attack was so devastating that Sony employees were forced to use pen and paper instead of computers!  Reportedly the FBI is looking into the attack which bears a strong resemblance to sophisticated attacks leveled at South Korean banks earlier this year.  North Korea’s elite Bureau 121 hacker unit has been blamed for the attacks by some experts.
