    **Dans une célèbre conférence donnée en 1959, le romancier et chimiste C.P. Snow a parlé de la séparation entre les sciences dures et les humanités, et du manque de respect et de dialogue qui existe souvent entre ces deux champs. Il a souligné en quoi cela pouvait nuire à l'avenir d'un pays dans la mesure où de nombreuses innovations résultent de l'interaction entre ces deux cultures.** **Snow en attribuait en grande partie la faute à ce qu'il appelait « notre croyance fanatique dans la spécialisation des cursus de formation » et dans cette obsession de « créer de petites élites autour de compétences pointues ». Malheureusement, peu de choses semblent avoir changé.**

    paulfree14 – Saturday, 13 January, 2018 - 15:51

some #video I found on #vimeo:

''Does #Facebook identify and manipulate our feelings? Is it able to recognize our personality type, habits, interests, political views, wages? Does it use all the information in order to reach us with personalized ads or sponsored content? You bet!..

  • Monologue of the Algorithm: how Facebook turns users data into its profit

    Does Facebook identify and manipulate our feelings? Is it able to recognize our personality type, habits, interests, political views, wages? Does it use all the information in order to reach us with personalized ads or sponsored content? You bet! Mark Zuckerberg's empire is based on analysing the digital dandruff that we leave behind on the Internet, transforming it into a valuable consumer profiles and selling it to advertisers. In this factory we are not even a product - we are just a human biomass, which only gains value after being shaped and worked on by algorithm. How exactly does it work? Take a look.

    Analysis of the Facebook app

    That's crazy. Having to install 250Mb of data on your phone for a simple frontend of a social network is unacceptable. One funny extract that I got from HackerNews. Things that are smaller than Facebook's iOS app: Windows, through at least Windows 95, if you count stuff written to disk during install The Java Runtime Environment Eclipse IDE Google Chrome for OS X (beware—updater leaves old versions in the app bundle) Firefox for OS X Pokémon Go A two-disc set encoded in 256kbps AAC
