Wikimedia France et la diffusion de la culture. Non seulement œuvrer dans le sens de la diffusion de la culture sur internet mais également la « libérer », telle est la mission que Wikimedia France s’est assignée.

Wikimedia France et la diffusion de la culture

Au travers de cette mission, nous entendons proposer tout à la fois une encyclopédie (Wikipedia), des corpus littéraires (Wikisource), des images et des sons (Wikimedia Commons), des manuels (Wikiversité)…Autant d’éléments de contenus que chacun puisse utiliser et diffuser sans entrave, mais également modifier, adapter, ou améliorer en participant à la production même de la connaissance. Chacun peut ainsi bénéficier du travail des autres et rendre le fruit de son propre labeur à la communauté. Une fois prouvé le bien fondé de nos méthodes, il était inéluctable que nous rencontrions le monde de la culture, dont nous partageons les valeurs de rigueur scientifique et de démocratisation de l’accès à la connaissance.

Why the Music Industry Must Change Its Strategy to Reach Digital Natives

He is a leading expert on music and digital media. The music industry's fortunes (or lack thereof) are familiar to most. The CD is suffering one of the longest death rattles in consumer product history, and it is becoming painfully clear that digital downloads are no knight in shining armor about to whisk up the fallen music business and ride off into the revenue growth sunset. So how did we get here? What happened? Hypebot. Digital MCD » MCDate « Cyber Résistance » le 24 mai. TNW Africa - Technology news, start-ups and culture from all over Africa. Kenya launches Africa's first Open Data Initiative - TNW Africa.

Kenya launches Africa's first Open Data Initiative - TNW Africa

The Kenya Open Data Initiative (KODI) was launched at a high profile event in Nairobi yesterday, with Kenya’s President Mwai Kibaki present as well as politicians, government officials and IT professionals. It was launched in partnership with organizations such as The World Bank, Ushahidi and the iHub. The initiative aims to make core government development, demographic, statistical and expenditure data available in a useful digital format for anyone to access. Currently there are over 160 datasets on the platform and already there have been some interesting applications of the datasets by a number of organizations.

And the team at Virtual Kenya has built an application that shows Kenyan MPs who refuse to pay taxes: Google bets on Africa as the next internet hotspot. To global search giant, Google, Africa is the next Internet hotspot. Globally, there are 94 domains registered per 10 000 users. However, in Africa, there is only one domain per 10 000 users. As such, there is tremendous potential for growth on the continent in the web space. Through its Africa programs focused on getting more Africans online, the company is betting that by developing an accessible, vibrant and self sufficient Internet ecosystem on the continent many more Africans would come online. Key among its strategies to develop the continent’s Internet ecosystem is to increase the amount of local African content online.

To do this effectively, the company has launched initiatives such as the Get African Business Online (GABO) initiative last year as a pilot to a select number of businesses in Nigeria. Interestingly, thinking local has started to pay off. Thinking local has also involved thinking of creative ways to market Google products to an African audience.

The Content Strategist as Digital Curator

During content creation and governance discussions, client pitches and creative brainstorms, I’ve watched this word gain traction at almost warp speed. As a transplant from museums and libraries into interactive media, I can’t help but ask what is it about this word that deserves redefinition for the web? Article Continues Below Curation has a distinguished history in cultural institutions. In galleries and museums, curators use judgment and a refined sense of style to select and arrange art to create a narrative, evoke a response, and communicate a message.
