Welcome to Jurassic Parking

TWIJ is living in 3020: We’ve got GIFs. And to celebrate our push to the future, we’re taking things prehistoric.

Cue up some Rhythm Heritage and loosen those fingers: With companies working remotely for the foreseeable future, a Maryland business group launched a Cyber SWAT Team to combat the ne’er-do-wells of the cyber world. The team manages a free incident assistance hotline for businesses struck by digital bad actors. If only the hold music could match the legendary ‘70s theme song.
