Un dispositif à faire pâlir d'envie la NSA. On n'essaie même pas de faire croire qu'il s'agit d'espionner "les agents étrangers", ici.

Le 24 décembre, Matignon a publié un décret sur une mesure très contestée permettant aux agents de l'État de surveiller le Net français. Habile. C'est un cadeau de Noël dont les internautes et les opérateurs français se seraient bien passés. Le gouvernement a publié mercredi 24 décembre, ...

Marion Maréchal-Lepen, ce matin chez Bourdin [1], ne cesse d'utiliser le terme "assimilation" en lieu et place de 'intégration", à commencer par la mention du croustillant "rapport d'assimilation" (sic) de Ayrault.

I knew it !

Je sais que le multiculturalisme est un sujet sensible en France, mais il y a des limites :)

En plus je me plante: je viens d'entendre un philosophe sur France Info qui dit que le modèle Français est bien l'assimilation, par exemple, via les mariages mixtes.

Ever found a typo in a book and wondered how to suggest to fix it ?

It is now possible with project gitenberg - when literature meets open source.

Git is a well known tool for developers : it is a version management system. When developers introduce a change on their code, they do not just change the code on servers, they commit it to their version management system, which allows, for any change, to see when, why and by whom it was introduced. It also allows to easily retrieve a previous version.

Github is a website that uses git to allows developers to contribute on projects. It is now the website where most open source projects are hosted. If a developer find a problem with an open source project, he suggests a change and project owner may decide to discuss it and integrate or not it in his project. If someone have found a problem but does not have code to suggest to fix it, it is possible to simply open an issue that will let project owner know there is a problem.

Gitenberg decided to use that to allow to suggest edits on public domain books. Project is brand new and already is reporting over 43,000 books. Any problem you find, you can open an issue on the project of the book or even directly suggest change.

Books are provided only in html for what I've seen so far, but it is reported that formats more targeted at ereaders will be provided soon.

Also worth noting : as it is using tools that are part of the usual developer stack, it can be integrated in higher level applications. If successful, we can expect to see this used as a basis for more user friendly projects, allowing to report problems and - why not - it may lead to a new trend in collaborative writing.

La seconde étape est donc la calibration de l'imprimante et l'impression d'un cube de test. De ce que j'en avais lu, il s'agissait d'un lent processus d'ajustement des paramètres jusqu'à trouver ceux qui conviennent à l'imprimante qu'on utilise.

Mon imprimante 3d est prête à l'usage !

Le monde est nouveau à nouveau, je me sens excité comme lorsque j'ai eu internet pour la première fois.

Pour ceux que ça intéresse, j'en profite pour mettre en ligne un blog, qui servira d'historique de mes expérimentations : http://feedback.el-mekki.fr/

The big academic decentralized knowledge pool : it's happening.

Hope this will be used.
Welcome to Academic Torrents! Currently making 205.68GB of research data available. Sharing data is hard. Emails have size limits, and setting up servers is too much work. We've designed a distributed system for sharing enormous datasets - for researchers, by researchers.

I wrote a short article this morning, after reading an article on HN saying that progressive enhancement is dead.

I think it's certainly not, and this has nothing to do with user deactivating or not javascript in their browser.

+Seth Webster error handling is all about ROI. CEOs may prefer not to lose developer time to make a perfect app, but they certainly not want their users to get frustrated and tell it on social media. That's a very good point to present to CEO or marketing to make them consider building robust software.

Story

rails and javascript developer
Introduction
I'm a web developer and I love my job. I really feel like being part of something in this unknown world massive networking is creating.

My expertise field is about webapps and javascript frameworks. I work with ruby on rails and jQuery or mootools.

After working for advertory as javascript developer, then rails/js developer for textmaster, I'm now CTO for LeCollectionist. I'm also cofounder (and developer) of kiwoos.

My experience is most relevant at remote work with small team for long term work on webapp with heavy javascript layer (with sysadmin/devops bonus). I'm currently having fun with Go as side tasks, parallelizing everything I can and making noob mistakes in the process.

My google+ account is mostly about relaying and commenting news - and keeping in touch with friends. If you want to see my technical stuff, you should rather go to my github and stackoverflow profiles.
