Transparency Is Trending: How the CCPA Will Affect the Future of Data Privacy

In 2018, GDPR shook things up for businesses around the globe. But in 2020, stronger data privacy starts right here in the USA.

Last year, California signed restrictive data privacy legislation that will transform commerce as we know it. The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) will require more transparency from businesses in the kinds of data they collect on their consumers — and how they choose to use it.

This change is prompted by the Facebook data breach that led to the compromise of a whopping 87 million users’ personal information. Though the GDPR and CCPA have similarities, they also have differing qualities, which means large businesses operating in both jurisdictions will need to comply with both. Businesses that are affected by the new legislation still have time to prepare before the law goes into effect in January 2020.

Email and Paid Media Don’t Have to Be Annoying

Steve Harrington is unarguably one of the best characters on Stranger Things. And believe it or not, there's a lot we can learn about paid media and email from Steve. 

Hear us out. 

Without giving too much away to those of you who have apparently lacked internet access since July, season three of Stranger Things features a goofy, lovable Steve Harrington who scoops ice cream and decodes Russian communications with his quirky friends at the Starcourt Mall.

Steve wasn’t always like this, though. Step back in time with us to 2016, when the Billboard charts were dominated by an apologetic Justin Bieber, Caribbean Drake and some group called The Chainsmokers.

Just the mention of math might make you want to close this browser in favor of sunnier skies. But what if I told you that math can help with all kinds of things, like how I—a back-end web developer—wrote this blog?

Email for All

Sometimes, the most exciting projects are — surprisingly — the easiest. At least, that was the case for our most recent endeavor here on the Nebo email team: creating email accessibility standards.

Wait, that can’t be right! you say. Accessibility means more code, more thought about design and copy, more time spent considering what it’d be like to need accessible email. How could all of that be easy? The answer: most of what ended up in our accessibility standards was stuff we were already doing.

That’s because accessibility isn’t some strange new frontier. It’s a continuation of making content that puts people first by ensuring they can access it in the best way possible.
