Mark Granovetter Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Mark Granovetter est un sociologue américain, né en 1943 à Jersey City, de l’université Stanford[1], considéré comme l'un des principaux représentants de la sociologie des réseaux sociaux. Idées majeures[modifier | modifier le code] Liens forts et Liens faibles[modifier | modifier le code] Son apport à la recherche le plus connu concerne la diffusion de l'information dans une communauté : Sa théorie est connue sous le nom de la « force des liens faibles » (Strength of weak ties, 1973)[2]. Les liens forts sont ceux que l'on a avec des amis proches (il s'agit de relations soutenues et fréquentes). Les liens faibles sont faits de simples connaissances. Les liens absents sont eux caractérisés par une absence d'interaction. Triade impossible[modifier | modifier le code] S'il existe un lien fort entre l'agent A et l'agent B et que l'agent A et l'agent C sont eux aussi liés par une forte relation, B et C sont au moins unis par un lien faible.

Interview with Anthony Flint, Author of “Wrestling with Moses: How Jane Jacobs Took on America’s Master Builder and Transformed the American City” Anthony Flint, author of “Wrestling with Moses: How Jane Jacobs Took On New York’s Master Builder and Transformed the American City” (Random House, 2009), is director of public affairs at the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, a think tank in Cambridge, Mass. A journalist for 20 years, primarily at The Boston Globe, he is also author of “This Land: The Battle over Sprawl and the Future of America” (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2006). In your new book, “Wrestling with Moses: How Jane Jacobs Took on New York’s Master Builder and Transformed the American City,” you write about Jane Jacob’s efforts to stop Robert Moses’s major highway plans, which would have decimated Greenwich Village’s Washington Square Park, major parts of the West Village and SoHo, Little Italy, Chinatown, and the Lower East Side. Please describe the contrasting visions of New York City offered by Moses and Jacobs, and how they came into conflict. Design professionals today have advanced by leaps and bounds. Like this:

Paolo Bacigalupi Imagines A Future Starved For Energy : 13.7: Cosmos And Culture Fiction can be many things: a means to escape the world; a platform for weaving a finely crafted story; a way to explore lives and circumstance that define our humanity. Science fiction has the extra burden of creating entire worlds of technology and future history and hoping the reader finds them believable. At its best science fiction can do what other genre's can not — help us imagine futures that may lie just before us. Though I am a bit late in finding Paolo Bacigalupi's The Windup Girl (it was published in 2009) it belongs in that "at its best" category. It's no secret that we are hurtling towards the cliff our dependence on fossil fuels. The Windup Girl takes on the world 150 years or so after "The Expansion" has ended. The strength of The Windup Girl's vision is that is does not imagine humanity falling back to barbarism but understands that without current flowing out of every wall people will find what ways they can.

Tara Hunt : L’effet Whuffie -Tirer parti de la puissance des rés A l’occasion du passage à Paris de Tara Hunt, nous avons le plaisir de vous annoncer la parution de l’édition française de son livre, The Whuffie factor, au cours du premier trimestre 2010. Voici l’avant-propos d’un livret reprenant un court extrait de ce livre, rédigé par Luc Bretones, spécialiste des communautés online, membre de l’Institut G9+. Ce livret a été distribué le 8 décembre aux 350 participants de la rencontre annuelle du G9+ - « L’entreprise face aux réseaux sociaux » – dont Tara Hunt était l’invitée d’honneur. « Les communautés en ligne changent les cultures, le business et l’environnement du Web 2.0. Tara nous invite à utiliser le pouvoir des réseaux sociaux pour développer nos activités, notre « capital social ». S’immerger dans le monde des médias sociaux implique authenticité, écoute et confiance. « The Whuffie Factor » est une bombe dans la littérature marketing, économique et IT. C’est un peu ça, l’effet Whuffie ! Ce livre sera donc traduit par ses lecteurs.

We're on a mission to spread important ideas and change minds. Book - Contemporary Green Buildings in China China is going through massive changes at the moment ranging from economy and society to culture. The bilt environment is definitely also part of this. Was it just four years back only about bringing prestigious names and projects into the country has this evolved into a wide ranging ecology and sustainability trend. A lot of projects are now not only seeked for their architect's prestigious name or the avantgarde design, but marketed for its sustainable value. Politically China has already implemented long term strategies on how to develop expected growth sustainable with the twelfth Five-Year Plan and in 2010 also proclaimed ambitious climate targets. A new DOM Pulishers publication 'Contemporary Green Buildings in China - Art and Architecture for Sustainability 2000-2010' is drawing a portray of the trend in sustainability architecture in China. This partnership between the two countries is of course an interesting one. The projects discussed in this book cover a broad range.

Fifty books every child should read Fifty books every child should read APR 07 2011 From the UK newspaper, The Independent, a list of fifty books every eleven year old should read.

But, inevitably, one manages to overlook certain titles that would make worthy additions to any collection of books about this city. Such is the case with the publications of Dominion Modern, the gallery space and Canadian architecture and design archive, which I'm somewhat ashamed to admit I only recently discovered. We'll have more on the gallery and its exhibitions in an upcoming profile, but the books are so good it'd be a shame not to feature them in their own right. Of the titles published by Dominion Modern, Mean City and Endangered Species are the most Toronto-focused, though the more recent monograph on architect Peter Dickinson also covers the significant work he produced here.

Book Review: The Internet and Everyone I’ve been re-reading "The Internet and Everyone" by John Chris Jones. I’ve been astonished once again by the sensibility of an artist-writer-designer whose philosophy – indeed his whole life - first inspired me when I was a young magazine editor more than 30 years ago. Like another muse of mine, Ivan Illich, John Chris Jones was decades ahead of his time. The time is ripe now for a wider readership. He wrote about cities without traffic signals in the 1950s – sixty years before today’s avant garde urban design experiments. In the 1960s, Jones was an advocate of what today is called call ‘design thinking’; (then, it was called design methods). He advocated user-centered design well before the term was widely used. As a kind of industrial gamekeeper turned poacher, Jones went on to warn about the potential dangers of the digital revolution unleashed by Claude Shannon. This post originally appeared on John's blog Doors of Perception.
