Pauvre Banlieusard en perdition dans les bouchons

J'incite tout visiteur de ce site à signer cette pétition car nous sommes en train d'approcher le chaos. Unilatéralement, sans vision d'un plan de transport, sans mesure d'accompagnement, sans aucune réflexion sur les transports Banlieue Banlieue, les berges Rive droite ont été fermées pour un test de 6 mois. La démocratie moderne dans un monde aussi industrialisé ne peut accepter des décisions aussi brutales. J'ai des milliers d'anecdotes à partager. Je pense notamment aux livreurs en camionnettes qui sont en train de perdre leur santé, la mairie de Paris se moque de ces sans dents, semble-t-il !

Helpdesk for books ?

That's a wonderful Norwegian video about the helpdesk to use a book.

Necessary for ebooks ?

Rentrée 2016 : les nouvelles règles sur les réseaux sociaux

Il faut se le dire, tout est en train à nouveau de changer.

Medium prend enfin sa place, n'en déplaise(nt ?) aux éminences des blogs !
Twitter devient totalement superficiel, on ne discute plus que de choses anodines en ne comprenant pas les interlocuteurs du moment. C'est ennuyeux au possible, dépéri.
C'est snapchat, webchat qui sont les gagnants pour les nouvelles générations.

Facebook devient le petit monde de la ménagère de moins de 50 ans, univers à fuir.

Linkedin n'est plus rien à part un nouveau service professionnel de Microsoft.

Il est temps de relancer une nouvelle révolution. Rappelez vous le temps des classements Wikio, Blogonet, des pearls incompréhensibles, on se marrait bien.

Là, c'est devenu bien tristounet.

IDPF & W3C future and visionnary combination — 10 May, Chicago, IL, USA —The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF) announced today mutual interest in combining their respective organizations to more quickly advance publishing technologies on the Open Web Platform.
Tim Berners-Lee, Web Inventor and W3C Director, and Bill McCoy, IDPF Executive Director unveiled the plans following Berners-Lee’s keynote address at IDPF DigiCon at Book Expo America 2016 in Chicago, Illinois, USA.
“We share an exciting vision for W3C and IDPF to fully align the publishing industry and core Web technology. This will create a rich media environment for digital publishing that opens up new possibilities for readers, authors, and publishers,” said Berners-Lee.
“Think about educational text books. The book content we know today is becoming highly interactive and accessible with links to videos and images from actual historical events and original research data. This provides greater authenticity and a more engaging learning environment for teachers and students,” Berners-Lee commented.
"Whether it's EPUB content or social marketing and reader engagement, Web technologies are foundational to enabling digital content to be created, distributed globally, and viewed on any Web-enabled device as well as dedicated reading apps and eReader devices," McCoy said.

Combining W3C and IDPF Resources Will Achieve Publishing on the Web Vision

Following the announcement, representatives from W3C and IDPF explained that for three years, members from their respective communities have been collaborating to identify how the publishing industry’s technology and expertise can improve the Web, and how Web technologies can create greater opportunities for the publishing industry.
“I’m enthusiastic about the prospect of joining forces with W3C. The IDPF’s track record of success in developing EPUB standards for the publishing industry will be complemented by W3C’s expertise in Web standards that enable accessible rich media,” said George Kerscher, President of the IDPF.
Dr. Jeff Jaffe, W3C CEO, concurred, “With the full participation of the digital publishing community as well as the core web platform developers we accelerate the development of technology standards. Early Web technologies did not meet the rigorous needs of authors and publishers whose curated content is crafted into books, journals and magazines with enhanced styling.”

Next Steps

The next steps in the process of combining the two organizations include soliciting comments from the respective memberships of W3C and IDPF and drafting a Memorandum of Understanding. Pending support from both memberships, completion of legal review, and the positive resolution of specific details, the goal is to combine the two organizations by January of 2017. The future evolution of EPUB technical standards would continue at W3C, along with broader work to improve publishing features across the entire Open Web Platform.

Je ressens précisément ce ressenti

On nous dit que cela va mieux. Est-ce réellement le cas ? Jacques Gamblin nous répond. C'est comme pour le réchauffement climatique. Peut être nous impose-t-on de ne pas le ressentir ?

My conclusion at the last #epubsummit triumph in bordeaux

Source :  very good post
We are today 26th of April 2016, and this is funny to read again this conclusion.

Pierre Danet and Bill Mc coy
"The EPUB Summit was brought to a close by Pierre Danet (Hachette and CEO of EDRLab) and Bill McCoy where a well deserved round of appluase was given for the main organizers of the event: Cyril Labordrie andLaurent Le Meur of EDRLab. Pierre Danet gave us a final thought: The collaboration of W3C, IDPF, EDRLab and many others is cause for us all to have great confidence in the future."
