Move over pinochle, Web surfing stimulates aging brains The University of California at Los Angeles this week gave us the perfect antidote to Nick Carr's musings in The Atlantic about how the Internet is turning us into multitasking scatterbrains with diminishing attention spans. A group of scientists found that searching the Internet doesn't make computer-savvy, middle-aged and older adults stupid. It actually triggers key centers in the brain that control decision making and complex reasoning. The study, reportedly the first of its kind to assess the impact of Internet searching on brain performance, will be published in an upcoming issue of the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry. "The study results are encouraging, that emerging computerized technologies may have physiological effects and potential benefits for middle-aged and older adults," said principal investigator Dr. Researchers tested out 24 volunteers between the ages of 55 and 76. All participants showed significant brain activity during the book-reading tasks.

A qui appartient une photo sur Twitter Une femme sortie des décombres dans la capitale haïtienne © AFP/DANIEL MOREL Le droit d'auteur s'applique-t-il aussi sur une photo postée sur un réseau social tel que Twitter, ou via l'outil de publication Twitpic ? Ou appartient-elle à l'éditeur de ces réseaux ? L'affaire avait fait grand bruit en début d'année, comme j'en parlais alors, l'AFP estimant alors Tous les Twitpics nous appartiennent, après avoir gentiment piqué à un photographe indépendant une photo qu'il avait postée via Twitpic. Tout était parti de photos postées via Twitpic par Daniel Morel, un photojournaliste qui couvrait alors les manifestations suite au séisme d'Haïti. L'affaire a tourné à la bataille juridique. Ce que vous postez sur Twitter ne vous appartient plus (pour l'AFP) Pour l'AFP, en mettant à disposition des photos sur Twitter ou Twitpic, un photographe accorde de facto une licence à toute personne qui voudrait utiliser ces photos, comme le spécifierait une mise à jour récente du règlement de Twitter.
