Welcome to Make It Better, our new series dedicated to giving you the latest and greatest WordPress news, plugins, and trends of the month. Here’s what’s happening:
18 Years of Hosting Great Ideas
1998 may not feel like that long ago, but in the tech world, it may as well have been ancient times. Great computers cost close to $5,000 and high-end monitors were nearly as much. Windows 98 was cutting edge and the first iMac had just been released. PC gamers were playing Half-Life, StarCraft: Brood War, and Unreal. AOL was still the largest internet service provider, powering close to 20 million users (and also providing millions more with free “coasters”). Google was in beta, AltaVista and Yahoo! dominated search. And on September 10, 1998, Demian Sellfors placed a few servers in his closet, plugged in an ethernet cable, and started Media Temple.

Duck Typing the Gender Gap
This is not an article about women in tech. Not because I don’t believe that female bodies in chairs and in the boardroom matters, and certainly not because I don’t want to meaningfully contribute to all the groundbreaking and awesome work being done to get them where they belong. Instead, I want to talk about a metaphor.
How We Kept Up With Kylie Jenner
Working on Media Temple’s Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud Services team is packed with challenges and learning opportunities.
