Revolt Against the Modern World | A depressing "then and now" picture blog Association belge de documentation - Belgische Vereniging voor Documentatie "L'information, c'est le pouvoir !" dit-on depuis de nombreuses années. Cette phrase est certainement toujours vraie mais l'information et les sources d'information ne cessent de grandir. Avoir l'information ne suffit plus, depuis longtemps ! Il faut avoir la bonne information, la plus fiable possible. Il faut aussi pouvoir en disposer au bon moment, quand on en a besoin. Ces dernières années ont vu se multiplier les chaînes de télévision et les radios, puis est venu Internet avec ses blogs, ses réseaux sociaux, Twitter, etc. faisant de tout un chacun des producteurs d'information. Plus que jamais les professionnels de l'information et de la documentation ont un rôle à jouer par leurs facultés à gérer ce flux incessant d'information, à valider les sources, à donner accès à cette information.

SEE Parlamentary Forum crowd sourced music video | Task Force on Financial Integrity and Economic Development Images in Cinder [Tutorials, Cinder] by @factoryfactory with images by @flight404 Written by Joshua Noble, with images by Robert Hodgin In this little tutorial we’re going to follow a path that starts with a file on the filesystem, say a PNG file, and ends with the image being drawn to the screen using OpenGL. // probably in your App's setup() method gl::Texture texture = loadImage( "image.jpg" ); // and in your App's draw() gl::draw( texture ); Even though that code simply loads and draws an image, there’s actually quite a lot going on behind the scenes. These two lines highlight one of the core characteristics of Cinder’s design: data, its I/O (Input/Output) and manipulation are carefully separated. Continuing this theme of the separation of responsibilities, we introduce the Surface class. Surface mySurface; // initialized elsewhere gl::Texture texture = gl::Texture( mySurface ); Surface The Surface comes in two varieties: an 8 bit unsigned integer and 32 bit floating point high dynamic range version. Surface mySurface( 640, 480, true ); // width, height, alpha?
