Comme le révèlent auteurs, artistes et éditeurs, le numérique constitue avant tout un défi à relever pour le livre car il nécessite de nouvelles façons de le concevoir.

Grenoble, the charming capital of the French Alps, is often— falsely — discussed in the French media for its crime rates. Today, culture is back on the main stage. The idea is to make waiting around in public places pass a little quicker with… short story dispensers. While it it customary these days to zone out staring at our smartphones while we wait for something, the Grenoble town council aims for its inhabitants to instead take advantage of these moments and, to bring back a bit of culture we’ve lost in the technological revolution. 5è Baromètre SOFIA/SNE/SGDL sur les usages du livre numérique – vidéo. 5 urban innovations Toronto could use right now.
The Toronto of the future will be bigger, bolder, and (hopefully) smarter.
New technologies and ideas are helping cities around the world improve the quality of life for their citizens by way of better transit, more accessible services, and modernized or repurposed infrastructure, and Toronto should be no different. While we're pretty influential (according to Forbes magazine,) there is still plenty the city could learn from the rest of the world. Here are 5 useful ideas Toronto could use right now. Reinvented phone boothsPhone booths are a dying breed. More than three quarters of Canadians have cellphones and as a result the telephones on Toronto's streets are increasingly forlorn and underused (most linger due to their applications in an emergency.
Better streetcar service inspired by other cities Despite having one of the largest surface rail networks on the continent, Toronto just can't seem to get streetcars right. Simplified parking signs Street parking in Toronto is a mess. BookLikes - Blog platform designed for book lovers. Bookmate. Bookigee. Studio. Just another WordPress.com site. France continues to search for a 'French Google,' while candidates find no support. It’s hard to keep track of the number of initiatives that have been started or proposed in France in order to create a “French Google” – that is, a France-based internet company with equal influence as players like Facebook, Google, Microsoft or Amazon.
I often feel that the French government’s entire investment strategy (via BPIFrance) is built around trying to find a diamond in the rough, a needle in the haystack, and propel it to multinational status. During Silicon Sentier’s launch of NUMA last month, one attendee told me that the association which manages LeCamping was originally meant to find a ‘French Google,’ though the mission statement of Silicon Sentier has since evolved & shifted. Even if there was a startup with the potential to disrupt Internet usage on such an infrastructural level as Google/Android, there’s evidence to suggest that such a startup would not be able to survive with France as its headquarters.
Oyster hits back at Amazon; launches online ebook subscription service. Oyster today launched its Netflix-for-books subscription service on the Web, striking back at Amazon less than a week after the debut of Kindle Unlimited.
Now available in desktop and mobile Web browsers, Oyster’s $10 per month subscription service packs a catalog of 500,000 books — 100,000 more titles than competing subscription service Scribd, and 100,000 less than Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited. According to Oyster, today’s release has been in the works for months; it was apparently not a quick reaction to Amazon’s similar ebook subscription service.
After trying out the service ourselves, we found the Web experience to be aesthetically pleasing, but not optimal when compared to the mobile and tablet experience. Following the launch of Kindle Unlimited, Oyster chief Eric Stromberg told VentureBeat he wasn’t surprised by the news. “They have pivoted from transactional to subscription-based in other media and have had limited success,” he jabbed.

Scribd's unlimited ebook service gets 15K new titles from romance publisher Harlequin. The market for ebook services is starting to get more exciting as major book publishers start accepting the idea that consumers want a “Netflix for books” to satisfy their voracious reading habits.
The latest example comes from Scribd’s premium unlimited ebook service, which today added over 15,000 book titles from major book publisher Harlequin. The publisher is well known for producing romance novels as well as a mix of other titles. Scribd’s unlimited service features a library of 500,000 ebook titles from more than 900 publishers, which subscribers can access across several devices via official Scribd apps. But to gain complete access to that library of ebooks, you’ll need to pay a $9 monthly subscription fee. That price could be a huge bargain for extremely active readers who commonly purchase two or three books per month anyway.
