Chime.in: Connect around your interests

At Chime.in we’re building the world’s richest interest network. A place to learn and share with others who have the same interests. Where one day, your every interest, no matter how big or small, serious or silly, will have its own vibrant community of people who are just as passionate about it as you are.

Our goal is to be the most democratic publishing platform in social media. So, we’re building in tools to give everyone a bigger voice: analytics on your posts and followers, ways to connect people with the most relevant and quality content, and, eventually, ways to monetize your content with partners.

Google Defaults to Encrypted HTTPS Searches for Logged In Users

Google will start redirecting searches through a secured, encrypted HTTPS connection for logged in users, starting today. (If it’s not happening to you right away, it likely will in the next week or so.) You’ve been able to manually point your browser toward https://google.com for quite some time now, but the move is intended to keep your browsing behavior more secure by default. (Looks like https://google.com just redirects now, so you have to go to https://encrypted.google.com/.) For more foundation, check out our explainer on why you should care about HTTPS on the web.
