Von Hippel : le paradigme de l’innovation par l’utilisateur A l’occasion de l’inauguration de l’Institut interdisciplinaire de l’innovation (« l’I3 », prononcez i-cube), le 14 juin 2012, un institut de recherche fondé par Mines Paris-Tech et Télécom Paris-Tech, qui associe 6 laboratoires et groupe de recherche sur l’innovation et la société numérique, les organisateurs de l’évènement avaient invité le célèbre spécialiste de l’innovation, Eric von Hippel, à faire une lecture de ses récents travaux.

In fact, studies suggest that the vast majority of people will murder another human being, if a guy in a lab coat tells them it's OK. But surely in their insatiable curiosity and desire to put knowledge above all things, science would never, say, inadvertently set off a chain of events that lead to some sort of disaster that ended the world. Well, here's five experiments that may prove us wrong. Recreating the Big Bang Scientists are kind of pissed that they weren't around when the Big Bang happened.

How to use a semicolon Data brokers sell lists of rape victims, AIDS patients, privacy group finds - Dec. 18, 2013 The World Privacy Forum uncovered these lists, along with several others, while investigating how data brokers collect and sell consumer information. Marketers buy this data so they can target shoppers based on everything from their income to clothing size. Other lists the nonprofit found included the home addresses of police officers, a mailing list for domestic violence shelters (which are typically kept secret by law) and a list of people with addictive behaviors towards drug and alcohol. The mere existence of these lists highlights the need for increased government regulations, said World Privacy Forum executive director Pam Dixon.

Visual Thinking Evolution A mind map is a diagram used to represent words, ideas, tasks, or other items linked to and arranged around a central key word or idea. Especially in British English, the terms spidergram and spidergraph are more common,[1] but they can cause confusion with the term spider diagram used in mathematics and logic. Mind maps are used to generate, visualize, structure, and classify ideas, and as an aid to studying and organizing information, solving problems, making decisions, and writing. The elements of a given mind map are arranged intuitively according to the importance of the concepts, and are classified into groupings, branches, or areas, with the goal of representing semantic or other connections between portions of information. Mind maps may also aid recall of existing memories. By presenting ideas in a radial, graphical, non-linear manner, mind maps encourage a brainstorming approach to planning and organizational tasks.
