THE BIG PICTURE. If every crisis is also an opportunity, then what opportunities are we failing to take advantage of solely on account of our perplexity and our unwillingness to come to terms with the changes happening now?


What we need is a broader, more open-minded perspective that enables us to peer beyond the boundaries of our habitual ways of doing things, our specialized disciplines and our conventional ideologies, and that can also visualize the pluralism and the inherent contradictions of our modern, globally networked world. A new Big Picture that is no longer from a centralized point of view and isn’t projected out of the center of a global force, but is instead a patchwork of diverse positions.

Ars Electronica 2012 is bringing together models that can serve as paragons and best-practice examples from art and science that offer inspirational demonstrations of how an open-minded way of looking at a larger whole not only reveals more of it but also brings totally new insights to light.

Definitionsdata: “data” is to be understood as part of a basic material malleable at will that can be shaped just like clay into a form or a volume laden with meaning and emotion. Data can either be presented in a quite elementary way: in binary, hexadecimal, decimal patterns… like digital data produced for statistic purposes (”log” files on web servers, for instance), or they can be aggregated in a meaningful (informative) way, which means considered as a message/message fragment (a comment on a blog, for instance).

Bibliothèques publiques et open data : quels enjeux ?

Il faut bien entendu commencer par des fondamentaux. Rassurez vous je ne vous propose pas de long discours, mais une seule présentation, à consulter avant d’aller plus loin. Elle vient de très bons spécialistes de la question : Libertic qui animent un blog de veille de très grande qualité sur ces questions. L’Open Data c’est quoi ?

Comme toute organisation aujourd’hui, un acteur public utilise l’informatique pour préparer toutes ses décisions, produire tous ses services, évaluer toutes ses actions.
