«We live in an era fundamentally skeptical about self-government. Our age is obsessed with leaving things alone. Let the Internet develop as the coders would develop it, the common view has it. Keep government out.This is an understandable view, given the character of our government’s regulation. Given its flaws, it no doubt seems best simply to keep government away. But this is an indulgence that is dangerous at any time. It is particularly dangerous now» – Lawrence Lessig.

«Silicon Valley, it turns out, won’t save the world. But those who built the internet have provided us with a clear and disturbing account of why everything went so wrong — how the technology they created has been used to undermine the very aspects of a free society that made that technology possible in the first place».

«Chat is a carrier-based service, not a Google service. It’s just “Chat,” not “Google Chat.” In a sign of its strategic importance to Google, the company has spearheaded development on the new standard, so that every carrier’s Chat services will be interoperable. But, like SMS, Chat won’t be end-to-end encrypted, and it will follow the same legal intercept standards. In other words: it won’t be as secure as iMessage or Signal».

«Pour Niall Ferguson, la période actuelle s’apparente à la Réforme, dont on vient de célébrer les 500 ans. Sans la révolution technologique de Gutenberg, le message de Luther n’aurait pas porté au-delà de quelques paroisses germaniques. En accélérant la diffusion des idées, l’invention de l’imprimerie a entraîné une polarisation de la société qui a conduit à la chasse aux « hérétiques » et aux guerres de religion. « La violence verbale est souvent le prélude à la violence réelle, souligne-t-il. Je ne vois pas dans l’histoire d’exemple où la polarisation atteigne une sorte de point d’équilibre. ». Pour l’historien, les monopoles actuels dans les technologies renforcent dangereusement les divisions sociales. « Nous devrions être plus inquiets que nous le sommes », dit-il. On est loin de ­l’Internet pacifique des visionnaires comme John Perry Barlow».

«What is Million Social Pixel?
A place for anybody who wants to raise awareness. You have a profile in a social media network and you want to advertise it? This is the place to be. Be part of the visibility platform for influencers.
A little bit history
We recently created Million Social Pixel. Yes, 13 years later than The Million Dollar Home Page. Now the world has become more social! The idea is to help influencers of every social network to improve their visibility providing them a space outside their own social network. We have created one panel for each social network».

«Les progrès de la robotique et de l’intelligence artificielle permettent d’envisager une infrastructure à l’échelle du continent pour numériser, analyser, reconstituer notre patrimoine millénaire. […] Les Big Data nous promettent une société où nous pourrions anticiper l’avenir, grâce à la puissance de calcul des superordinateurs et la collecte massive de données» – Frédéric Kaplan.

«Twitter has also grown exponentially in the years since the library started its collection. That year, 2010, about half a billion tweets were posted every two weeks. In November, that many were sent each day. The messages are now longer: The company recently doubled its limit for tweets to 280 from 140 characters. Such complications have plagued public access to the archive, too, which is limited while the library works to find a cost-effective and sustainable way to open the archive to the public».
