Le livre de référence sur l'open data : enjeux, outils, usages -démocratie locale, donnée ouverte. Open data, comprendre l’ouverture des données publiques. De Simon Chignard 192 pages; 24,50 euros TTC Préface : Jacques-François Marchandise La donnée est au cœur du fonctionnement des territoires.

Elle permet d’aider à la décision, d’évaluer les politiques mises en œuvre ou de faire vivre les services urbains de notre vie quotidienne (transports, vie culturelle, économie, politique sociale, etc.). Cet ouvrage, le premier en France sur ce phénomène, permet de tout comprendre de l’ouverture des données publiques. Simon Chignard propose une analyse critique constructive de l’open data, et donne les repères pour pouvoir l’utiliser dans le contexte français. Il montre comment l’open data est une source d’ innovation et en explique les bénéfices attendus. Tout à la fois théorique et pratique, critique et stratégique, ce livre est une référence pour comprendre l’open data et une boîte à outils pour agir.

Defining A City By Its Professional Skill Set with Data From LinkedIn

In addition to providing concentrated access to a more diverse set of cultural, culinary, and educational options, cities also attract and nurture clusters of workers with complementary and contrasting skills. For workers considering a move, the professional attributes of a city can matter just as much as the attributes of a particular company or opportunity. Eric sadin.

Public Safety and Wall Street

Emmanuel Didier explores how they are turning public safety into a commodity for Wall Street. When companies break the law and people pay: The scary lesson of the Google Bus. Ever since Rebecca Solnit took to the London Review of Books to ruminate on the meaning of the private chartered buses that transport tech industry workers around the San Francisco Bay Area (she called them, among other things, “the spaceships on which our alien overlords have landed to rule us,”) the Google Bus has become the go-to symbol for discord in Silicon Valley.

When companies break the law and people pay: The scary lesson of the Google Bus

First a Google Bus piñata was smashed to pieces at a rally in San Francisco’s Mission district last May. Then protesters drove a fake Google Bus in the annual Pride Parade with props linking the shuttles to gentrification, eviction and displacement. By December, when activists blockaded an actual Google bus on the street, the city and media were primed for the street theater stunt heard round the world. How to Keep the NSA Out of Your Computer.

After decades of central planning that ignored local conditions and the complex needs of final users, and then tried to do away with the commons for monetary reasons, people have forgotten the principal geometrical, human-scaled patterns that generated our most successful urban spaces throughout history.

P2P-Urbanism: Backed by Evidence

There has been an important loss of the shared knowledge that once let people build humane environments without much in the way of formal planning. The general form of urbanism implemented during the 20th century and the beginning of our own 21st century was large-scale, centrally planned development. Different methods of design came into vogue during this time, each explicitly trying to avoid traditional building forms and techniques that have been used for hundreds, if not thousands of years. This was done just for the sake of “not doing the same that we did in the past.”

Transition Towns: Initiatives of Transformation. In 2006, when Rob Hopkins moved from Ireland to the small English town of Totnes with his family and co-founded the first Transition Town Initiative in the world with some friends, he surely never imagined what he was starting.

Transition Towns: Initiatives of Transformation

Six years on, there are more than 500 “official” Transition Town initiatives in more than 38 countries, and several thousand more are in the process of formation in many cities, towns and regions across the world. The model of Transition transcends cultural barriers and languages, and works very well on all levels in between the regional and the personal. It is open enough to inspire people from Brazilian favelas to small towns in Sweden, and it offers enough common features to forge global connections in how these people think and act in their locality. Presses universitaires de Rennes - Chapitre 4. La logique sécuritaire.

1L’insécurité, en participant à la construction de l’argumentaire légitimant l’autoenfermement résidentiel, est à l’origine d’une rhétorique qui interroge les diverses finalités sécuritaires de l’enclosure dans le domaine de l’habitat.

Dans un premier temps, cette logique va être confrontée au discours relatif à la fragmentation sociospatiale des villes, pour être mise en perspective ensuite à la lumière du contexte français. Toutefois, même si le propos est fondé pour l’essentiel sur l’analyse du cas hexagonal, celui-ci bénéficiera de quelques éclairages complémentaires en provenance d’autres situations géographiques.
