Welcome to our weekly review of stories from our blog and other sources, covering a range of topics from product announcements, tools and features to disruptions on the Internet. João Tomé is joined by our CTO, John Graham-Cumming.

In this week's program, we start by welcoming Michele Yetman as Cloudflare's new Chief People Officer. Next, we discuss a new addition to our Load Balancing solution, but also emphasize the importance of Cloudflare Tunnels — a private, secure connection between your data center or web servers and Cloudflare.

Cloudflare’s Birthday Week is approaching later this month, so let's take a look at how these innovation weeks originated and what they involve. The official launch occurred on September 27, 2010. In 2012 , Cloudflare began the tradition of unveiling “gifts” in the form of products and partnerships that give back to the Internet during this late September week. For a few years now, Birthday Week has been one of the around seven or eight innovation weeks we typically do each year.

Last but not least, we delve into trends from Cloudflare Radar related to the major earthquake in Morocco and how it impacted the Internet there. We also discuss how the iPhone 15 announcement made tech news-related sites trend in our domain ranking list.
