Les GAFAM contre l'Internet : « Leur objectif, c'est d'absorber le marché »

L'objectif : offrir un cadre théorique cohérent à la critique de l'économie politique du réseau, et de ses acteurs économiques principaux, Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon et Microsoft (GAFAM). Un retour critique sur l'histoire d'Internet. C'est ce que propose le chercheur en science de l'information et de la communication Nikos Smyrnaios dans son ouvrage Les GAFAM contre l'Internet (ed. INA). En mobilisant les outils d'analyse de l'économie politique, l'auteur embrasse l'histoire du développement du réseau jusqu'à aujourd'hui.

Usbek & Rica : Quel est l'objet de cet ouvrage ? Nikos Smyrnaios : Le livre est une tentative de mettre en place une critique de l'économie politique de l'Internet contemporain, en essayant de mettre en perspective les discours dominants.

Virtual reality has promise, and so do chatbots. Ditto, too, for connected cars and connected homes. In fact, the challenge for most newsrooms isn’t figuring out potential new platforms for experimentation but rather determining which new technologies are worth prioritizing most.

Two meetings have been held so far, with one more planned before the beginning of the summer, and the project has been successful enough to prompt the organisers to plan to do it all again in the autumn. Marthe Eveline Røsholt, news journalist, Østlands-Posten, told Journalism.co.uk the meetings aimed to counter an unfriendly debate climate on the politics scene in the country, where some people did not want to be involved in discussions out of a fear of being attacked for their views. "We wanted to create a new scene where everyone could speak and where you were allowed to talk without someone interrupting you.

The Washington Post is diving into augmented reality. Vice News Issues takes a “homepage-isn’t-dead” approach to big topics (first up: populism) Is it possible to take a step back and go deep on a topic on the Internet?

Vice News Issues takes a “homepage-isn’t-dead” approach to big topics (first up: populism)

It should be, but the busy, crazy news cycle of the last few months has made it difficult to focus on anything for more than a few minutes. A new project, Vice News Issues, is a digital magazine-y concept that’s trying to address the issue. On Tuesday, Vice News’ homepage is taken over with a package of stories on one topic: populism. “The push on the web these days is toward individual articles. Homepages are dying.

Trends in Newsrooms 1: The Rise of Bots - World News Publishing Focus by WAN-IFRA

And ever since companies like Facebook, Telegram or Kik made the technology to build chatbots available to the general public, news organisations have been experimenting with it in various forms. Most news organisations see this trend as just that: a chance to experiment with an emerging technology on established platforms. And clearly, these experiments are primarily centred around testing the waters of a more personalised experience with their users.

Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales launches Wikitribune, a large-scale attempt to combat fake news. Good things can happen when a crowd goes to work on trying to figure out a problem in journalism.

Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales launches Wikitribune, a large-scale attempt to combat fake news

At the same time, completely crowdsourced news investigations can go bad without oversight — as when, for example, a group of Redditors falsely accused someone of being the Boston Marathon bomber. An entirely crowdsourced investigation with nobody to oversee it or pay for it will probably go nowhere. At the same time, trust in the media is at low and fact checking efforts have become entwined with partisan politics. So what would happen if you combined professional journalism with fact checking by the people? On Monday evening, Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales launched Wikitribune, an independent site (not affiliated with Wikipedia or the Wikimedia Foundation) “that brings journalists and a community of volunteers together” in a combination that Wales hopes will combat fake news online — initially in English, then in other languages.

The Telegraph launches audio show for Google Home

The British newspaper launched two audio series in the last two weeks: a standard weekly podcast and an audio show designed for Google Home. Audio has become a focus for the publisher over the last six months, partly thanks to devices like Amazon Echo and Google Home, the latter of which launched in the U.K. in early April. To coincide with this, The Telegraph started producing “5 by 5” specifically for Google Home. The daily 10-minute news show features five journalists discussing the day’s top-five topics and airs at 5 p.m. each day.

Le cross-plateforme, futur de l’industrie des médias ? Par Alexandra Yeh, France Télévisions, Direction de la Prospective. This site is “taking the edge off rant mode” by making readers pass a quiz before commenting. Two weeks ago, NRKbeta, the tech vertical of the Norwegian public broadcaster NRK, published an explainer about a proposed new digital surveillance law in the country. Digital security is a controversial topic, and the conversation around security issues can become heated. But the conversation in the comments of the article was respectful and productive: Commenters shared links to books and other research, asked clarifying questions, and offered constructive feedback. The team at NRKbeta attributes the civil tenor of its comments to a feature it introduced last month.

On some stories, potential commenters are now required to answer three basic multiple-choice questions about the article before they’re allowed to post a comment. WeChat's App Revolution - Bloomberg View. The biggest long-term threat to the iPhone isn't Android, Samsung Electronics Co. or China's bevy of cheap phone makers. Instead, it's a deceptively simple idea: Apps work better if you embed them in a single program, rather than let them proliferate across your home screen. WeChat, China's leading social media app, just launched a new platform with exactly that idea in mind. It has the potential to reconfigure smartphones as radically as anything since the first iPhone was released. The company calls the concept "mini programs," and the idea is that users can call up useful features from third parties -- photo filters, language tools, ride-sharing services -- within the WeChat app and use them instantly, with no downloading or installation required.

Although that sounds like a modest innovation, it solves two crucial problems plaguing the app model. 7 médias qui rendent optimiste sur l’avenir du journalisme.
