"Claiming itself to be a next-generation publisher, WEbook has successfully roped in venture capitalists to invest in their business," Deepak Thakur, senior research analyst in ICT Practice at Frost & Sullivan, told the E-Commerce Times.

Competition is actually good thing that validates this new industry; and webook has real competitors, check out StoryMash.com, I've been publishing there for almost 6 months, and on webook for a few weeks, but my first love is StoryMash, it's like the open version of webook, and StoryMash pays more.

What was your initial reaction to news of the Colonial Pipeline cyberattack?
It demonstrates that all critical infrastructure sectors are at high risk of disruption by cybercriminals.
Everyone will be paying for this attack in the form of higher energy costs.
Governments need to work more closely with private industries to protect networks for the sake of public safety.
It's a global problem. An international alliance must be formed to hold the perpetrators accountable and prevent future attacks.
