Here are the results (so far) of our summer project to do a bit of robotics with the children. That was lots of fun, and my 9, 11 and 13 years old children all got a taste for what programming is.

These robots come with a graphical programming environment which is simple to use, has its limitations, but is really interesting for children to start experimenting.

A big thank you to +Association Pobot  for their support and in particular +Julien Holtzer ...

Wow. 
 
After a decade-long journey through our solar system, our New Horizons spacecraft made its closest approach to Pluto today, about 7,750 miles above the surface -- roughly the same distance from New York to Mumbai, India - making it the first-ever space mission to explore a world so far from Earth.

Apres une petite marche de 40 minutes a l'aube nous voici perches dans la montagne avec une vue sur cette mer de nuage qui recouvre toute la Cote d'Azur et la Mediterranee.

Dans le fond de la vallee la brume matinale est en train de monter et de s'evaporer tranquillement sous l'effet des rayons du soleil.

La lumiere du matin est notre preferee, encore douce et subtile, elle presque doree.

Cette rapide ascension au dessus du village Greolieres nous amene sur un balcon naturel avec une vue toujours changeante. Il est tres frequent que nous y rencontrions biches, cerfs et chamois.

Une belle facon de commencer la journee.

Parmi les etoiles d'une taille comparable a notre celle de notre soleil il s'avere qu'une etoile sur 5 a des planetes de tailles comparable a celle de la terre et potentiellement habitable...

Quel changement dans notre perception de notre univers ces dernieres annees!

The Milky Way galaxy alone could have about 25 billion rocky worlds in “habitable zones” of stars.

Apple did patent "pinch to zoom" but certainly didn't invent it, as can be seen in the video pointed to by this blog post.

The whole video is interesting.
So now it seems that Apple did not, in 2005, invent the “pinch to zoom” gesture that Myron Krueger had already implemented in 1983. According to a recent US Patent and Trademark Office ruling, in fact it was Bran Ferren and Danny Hillis who in 2005 invented the pinch to zoom gesture that Mr.

A must watch in this "Minority Report" age. So refreshing.

Eight years and a quarter million of articles "read" it is my last day using Google Reader. I have now switched over to Feedly and hope it will last me at least as much.

Story
Tagline
What is essential is invisible to the eye
Introduction
I am a Software Engineer and the father of three...

If you wonder in which of your circles I might fit here are few things that are of interest to me:
  • Technology & Science: I have more than a passing interest in anything in that field.
  • Humanity and mankind future: I love to hear from people with pragmatic views on public policies, general social and economic issues...
  • Open Source/Free Software in general.
I tend to share on these topics on private circles, and will add you back if I can figure out what you are interested in.

I am human, I err, I doubt, I hope, I work, I love...
