Is a poor internet worst than no Internet?
As a for-profit company, what Facebook is doing seems legit and makes total sense.
What is crazy here, is that big corporation are filling the internet gap, created by States that are not developing internet infrastructure as they should. This creates high risk for internet neutrality:
Wikipedia is available (thank god), but YouTube or Google Search needs a paying data plan. 
I'm not sure what are Google plans with Loon, but I would assume that Google needs the whole web to be accessible, which is not necessarily true for FB. 
On the upside, as giants like FB and Google gets bigger and more monopolistic, the expectations are changing. Let's hope that it opens us a bit more the borders...
 
Facebook, Internet.org, and Exploiting the Poor

So when the poor, who in theory can’t afford a net connection come to the Facebook Zero service confusingly called Internet.org, they’re made to believe they’re on the internet while in reality they’re only on Facebook and a few hand-picked sites.

And the sites too are picked in secret under some unknown process... Facebook chose to offer the distant-second search engine Bing instead of industry-leading Google... And then Facebook’s Zero product features a tiny job site like Babajob instead of the industry-leading Naukri... Facebook doesn’t feature YouTube—the largest video site in the world and an immense education resource —but allows its own videos in full. It doesn’t really look like charity any more, does it?

Indian journalist Nikhil Pahwa has responded... pointing out research after research that shows zero services around the world universally tend to do badly for the people who use them. It all seems to amount to economic racism—exploiting the poor in under-developed parts of the world to become your customers under the guise of some apparent charitable purpose. While offering them a shoddy, stunted version of the real thing. As Vijay Shekhar Sharma, founder of payments app PayTM, puts it: “It’s poor internet for poor people”.
It looks like India is saying "thanks, but no thanks" to Facebook and Airtel's Zero efforts.

A good review of how French tech is having a hard time to compete, because of financial and political pressure 
  by Frederic Filloux No one should be happy with the sale of French video streaming Dailymotion to Vivendi. Not buyers, nor the the startup’s management team --and certainly not the venture capital community. (First of two articles)  DailyMotion was meant to be a YouTube competitor. The two companies were actually born almost simultaneously in 2005. Unfortunately, Dailymotion remained deeply French (even though his CEO later resettled in Califor...

Le projet du futur campus Google

Today we're submitting a proposal to redevelop part of our campus in North Bayshore. With our proposed plan, our campus could be more adaptable to a changing company, bring new life to the environment, save energy, and create a sense of community with bike paths and space for local businesses. Ultimately, we hope to create a space for people, nature and ideas to thrive. Learn more: http://g.co/go/y6pnk

Magnifique ce campus, j'aime beaucoup l'idée d'inverser la tendance, au lieu de créer des points de végétation au milieu des bâtiments, on créé des bâtiments au milieu de la végétation. Écolo, naturel et l'idée de l'intérieur qui s'ouvre sur le monde extérieur c'est une vision futuriste qui me plait beaucoup.

The real question is then the following: in a global world, how can Politics make sure it's easy enough to switch on different platforms... If I buy a movie on iTunes, can I then watch it on my Android phone.
 
The Next Battle for Mobile is About the Ecosystem

For the past several years, the major players in mobile have competed over device market share.  In that time, iOS has been overshadowed to become a distant second to Android, while Blackberry has collapsed, Windows Phone has barely eked out a presence, and all other plays are simply too small to matter anymore if they ever did, except perhaps in some developing markets.

However, distributing the most devices does not ensure victory in the mobile wars.  If someone buys your phone, but never uses it for much, then their cost of leaving for a different platform is low.  So the next front in the war is ecosystem lock-in: getting your users to spend and invest enough in the platform that leaving becomes difficult.

Apple is, in this area, an undisupted king but still wants more, as this article highlights.  Every movie you buy from iTunes, every song, every book from iBooks, every paid app from the app store makes it more unlikely you will switch to Android or anything else.

Google, while not as effective at lock-in, is nonetheless pushing for the same goal and getting better at it all the time.  Many Android users may simply have bought a device because it was cheap or free with their phone plan, but Google wants to make sure they go beyond this to becoming true consumers of the platform.  This makes switching not only more difficult between platforms, but also makes it harder for any third-party OEM or app maker to compete.

Herein lies the real challenge to anyone except for the two leading horses in the race: soon there won't be much room to compete on having the superior platform (which is always arguable, anyways).  Microsoft's next version of Windows Phone could wash your dishes, cook your lunch, and give you a massage at the end of the workday, but it won't matter if you've bought $100 worth of digital goods on iOS or Android, you probably are sticking with iOS or Android.

Apple and Google built it and the users indeed came, but the challenge now is to lock those users in and turn them into a new and profitable source of revenue.  Google, which does not make any money selling Android, needs this even more than Apple.

Interesting op ed. #JeSuisCharlie  
 
"The cartoons in Charlie Hebdo may have been graceless and intentionally provocative and not funny. Tech journalism may sometimes be unimportant and vapid and self-indulgent. But all speech plays a part in creating a civilized society, whether from Demosthenes and Bill O’Reilly, Marshall McLuhan and Lawrence Lessig, or TechCrunch and Gizmodo."

Jordan Golson shares a powerful op-ed on today's massacre in Paris.

Murder is not a virtue of any religion. ‪#‎jesuischarlie‬ ‪#‎freedomofexpression
At 11:28 a.m. Wednesday local time, the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo tweeted a cartoon of ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi. "Best wishes and good health," the caption read. Minutes after the tweet was published, three armed and masked gunmen stormed the paper's offices and opened fire, killing ten of its staff and two police officers.

So, in the end, the real issue with that Video Surveillance Cameraman is that it's pure invasion of Privacy (and personal space). There is a Social agreement with Public Video Surveillance: its scope is limited to Public safety and its access should only be granted and controlled by officials. 
I do agree with the awareness this video creates: there is an overall  lack of information for citizens: are they being recorded, how long is the data kept etc...

A rather small facing in this main street makes it almost too easy to miss this nice bar on park row. Decanter provides however a good selection of local beer, good cocktails and a complete range of spirits. Service is good and ambiance is nice. Perfect place if you want a cosy drink afterwork.

A couple of minutes away from Leeds train station, this restaurant has a lot to offer: a complete menu, with good service and even a live pianist at night. This is a warm buzzing restaurant that can get pretty loud but it's fun. Waygu burger is something you should try.

Even if it means you have to go on the other side of the train track, this restaurant is worth it. The menu is short, but guarantees fresh and good quality food. Nicely decorated with a good service, you can even enjoy a nice terrasse in the summer. Go for it!

Great place to brunch. It's nice to have a different inspiration food wise. Loads of feta, humus veggies. It gives a nice twist to the usual full Irish breakfast. Go for it!
