18,103 Yellow Rubber Duckies Attempt Guinness World Record in Seattle, WA

Cozi, the No. 1 online and mobile family calendar and organization service, is known for helping families get their ducks in a row, and now the company is putting its bills where its beak is. Cozi is attempting to set a Guinness World Record in Seattle on Sunday, June 5, by creating the world’s longest line of little yellow rubber ducks in Warren G. Magnuson Park (duckduckduck.cozi.com), all in an effort to help more families get their own ducks lined up.

Imagine 18,103 yellow rubber ducks stretching an entire mile through the park overlooking beautiful Lake Washington. To make it official, a certified Guinness World Record adjudicator will be waddling around on-site counting the ducks and certifying the record.

“Too many families are playing duck, duck, goose with their schedules,” said Cozi CEO Robbie Cape. “We’re removing the geese from the equation and getting Cozi ducks in a row … literally. This is a cheerful expression of what families do every single day with Cozi. And we get to make ducky history in the process!”

This historic achievement will be proclaimed at about 1 p.m. Pacific time on Kite Hill (in Magnuson Park), when the row measures precisely one mile and the official record is quacked out loud. The public is encouraged to attend the event and bring their own ducklings of all ages to witness rubber-duck history in the making. Rain or shine – but no down jackets, please!

Cozi is the quack-tastic FREE Web and mobile service that keeps families from drowning in the details. Since 2005, Cozi has helped millions of busy families get their ducks in a row by enabling them to coordinate, communicate and manage all of their day-to-day activities from one central online location that can be accessed from anywhere—home, work, the grocery store, the soccer field, the pond or anywhere in between. It eliminates miscommunication around multiple schedules, shopping lists and other family to-dos, and replaces the chaos with an easy and efficient solution that can be used by parents and ducklings alike. With Cozi, family life is just ducky.

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
