Should I use Two Factor Authentication?

In October last year, over 20,000 hacked emails from John Podesta, chairman of Hillary Clinton’s US Presidential Campaign, were released to the public via Wikileaks.

The making of a Live Album Part 2

Last week I wrote Part 1 of this ‘Making of a Live Album’ series. Part 1 focussed on how we put together an event called ‘Communion’, a worship night with new songs written by members of St Barnabas Broadway and Christ Church St Ives. The event was recorded in order to produce a Live Album. This week I’m writing about the process of making the Album. If you want to listen to the album (which I definitely recommend), you can download it at Mountain Street Media or iTunes, or find it on Spotify.
