Startup Weekend EDU San Francisco 2015 (Photo Gallery)


We spent the weekend at Startup Weekend EDU San Francisco. It was a fantastic event with over 100 participants and around 200 people walking through the door as coaches, mentors, or demo watchers. The participants and observers were all part of a 54 hour hackathon where people came in Friday night to pitch ideas, vote on ideas, and then build companies. In just a weekend, ideas became validated companies that had functional products. The winner of the 2015 Startup Weekend EDU San Francisco event was a team called Literator. Literator makes it easy to organize and analyze data that teachers are already collecting on their students, so that students can get more out of their one-on-one time with teachers. Literator is effectively helping teachers be more paperless, which leads to efficiency, easier teacher-to-parent communication, and a higher quality of education.

Announcing some important updates to our Two-Step Verification feature

We recommend Two-Step Verification to everyone, as it’s the most fool-proof way of keeping the domains in your account secure – and it’s totally free. It’s especially important for people who have hundreds or even thousands of domains in their accounts, as they’re more likely to be targeted by bad dudes trying to hijack domains.

The basics of our Two-Step Verification process are still the same—create a unique credential for your account, and then use a smartphone app to generate unique login codes—and it remains a totally free feature for all customers. However, if you were previously using Namesafe we’ve made some changes that will require you to update your verification credentials by March 5, 2015 to keep your account secure.
