Les dessous du piratage de Bercy » Article » OWNI, News Augmented Les pirates informatiques du ministère de l'Economie avaient commencé à préparer leur infiltration au moins six mois avant que les autorités ne mettent un terme à leur opération d'espionnage. Une enquête OWNI. Nombreux sont ceux qui se sont demandés comment des pirates informatiques avaient réussi à s’infiltrer dans les 150 ordinateurs de la direction du Trésor de Bercy, mais également pourquoi l’Agence nationale de la sécurité des systèmes d’information (ANSSI) avait attendu trois mois pour mettre un terme à cette opération d’espionnage. Près de quinze jours après la révélation des faits, les témoignages recueillis par OWNI montrent que l’opération de transparence effectuée par les autorités autour de cette affaire d’espionnage signe un tournant politique dans l’approche de la sécurité informatique. Un virus créé tout spécialement pour les cerveaux de Bercy Cette technique est d’autant plus sophistiquée qu’il faut d’abord : Un espion au ministère de l’Economie?

News - GLOBE.gov Dec 17, 2012 The GLOBE at Night program is an international citizen-science campaign to raise public awareness of the impact of light pollution. The worldwide campaign invites citizen-scientists to record the brightness of the night sky by visually matching the appearance of a constellation like Orion with star maps of progressively fainter stars or using meters to obtain more precise measurements. Measurements are submitted to a central website by computer or smart phone. From these data an interactive map of all worldwide observations is created. There are five GLOBE at Night campaigns in 2013: January 3 - 12, January 31 - February 9, March 3 - 12, 2013, March 31 - April 9, and April 29 - May 8. Comments Please log-in to post comments

Crowdsourcing Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Le crowdsourcing, ou externalisation ouverte[1] ou production participative[2], est l'utilisation de la créativité, de l'intelligence et du savoir-faire d'un grand nombre de personnes, en sous-traitance, pour réaliser certaines tâches traditionnellement effectuées par un employé ou un entrepreneur. Ceci se fait par un appel ciblé (quand un niveau minimal d'expertise est nécessaire) ou par un appel ouvert à d'autres acteurs. C'est un des domaines émergents de la gestion des connaissances, Il existe de nombreuses formes, outils, buts et stratégies du crowdsourcing[3]. Origine du terme[modifier | modifier le code] Le terme crowdsourcing est un néologisme sémantiquement calqué sur l'outsourcing (externalisation).
