Le collectif de freelances, l’agence de demain ?

Les espaces de coworking foisonnent à travers la Belgique, on en trouve même de plus en plus dans les villes wallonnes. Pas étonnant, car cette tendance est vraiment en phase avec le monde de demain.

Les entreprises ne font plus rêver, elles ne garantissent plus la carrière, ne permettent plus de s'épanouir et beaucoup de jeunes diplômés décident de tenter l'expérience du travail en tant qu'indépendant ou freelance.

De nombreuses activités ne nécessitent que d'un PC et d'une connexion internet, parfois, également un lieu de rencontre ou une salle de réunion.

De nombreux signaux montrent que le coworking est partout en croissance et plusieurs études, notamment celle menée par Deloitte en Suisse, l'envisagent même comme « l'espace de travail du futur » et préconise que davantage d'espaces de coworking soient créés afin de répondre à l'évolution des façons de travailler de la population active.

Si les espaces de coworking offrent un cadre de travail de qualité pour les coworkers, leur réseau peut également se développer en ligne. Il est possible de connecter des professionnels ensemble et leur permettre de s'organiser comme une agence, car être indépendant dans un secteur vaste comme le digital, ce n'est pas simple si on n'a pas de collègues sur lesquelles s'appuyer en cas de surcharge de travail. On peut également passer parfois beaucoup de temps à chercher des clients et on doit contourner son manque d'expertises dans certains domaines.

Ce sont de nombreuses préoccupations au quotidien dont on pourrait se passer si on était salarié d'une agence.

En rejoignant un collectif de freelances ou une un réseau de coworkers, l'indépendant peut profiter de certains avantages du travail en entreprise tout en gardant sa liberté. Dans les secteurs du digital, c'est d'autant plus facile, car on peut s'organiser facilement ou échanger des idées en toute confiance avec des channels sur Slack.

Plus de coopération, c'est souvent moins de stress. Il existe de nombreux projets de collectifs, mais vous pouvez aussi me rejoindre sur le BIG Project, un tout nouveau collectif belge de créatif et marketeurs.

We encountered an issue in the release for jQuery 3.3.0, so we've immediately released another tag.

Cette presse en ligne qui redevient payante

Vous l'avez peut-être remarqué, une grande partie de la presse francophone belge fait payer ses articles en ligne. Après la libre Belgique, Le Soir, les quotidiens de SudPresse et L'Avenir, c'est au tour de la DH.be d'y passer.

Suite à la communication de la DHnet, les réactions des internautes ne s'est pas fait attendre : « écoeurant, ils font payer des copier/coller, j'irai voir ailleurs … » et d'autres types de réactions négatives.

Je trouve dommage que les presses en ligne passent toutes au modèle payant, mais c'est un modèle comme un autre et leurs journaux papier ont toujours été payants.

Il faut bien comprendre que l'avenir n'est pas prometteur pour la presse avec les réseaux sociaux qui lui donne de moins en moins de place tout comme Google et la publicité en ligne qui n'est pas hyper rentable. Le retargeting et le big data qui offraient des potentiels de croissance pour la publicité en ligne sont fragilisés en partie par le GDPR, une révision de la législation européenne en matière de vie privée.

100% digitale, 100% social, 100% vidéo

Depuis peu, une autre menace est apparue, c'est les nouveaux médias. Vous les connaissez sous les noms de Brut, BuzzFeed, Vice, Melty, Konbini, Topito, c'est-à-dire les médias de la génération « millénale ». Ces médias sont des pièges à clics, ils ne jouent pas avec les mêmes règles que la presse qui doit vérifier ses sources et se concentrer sur la vraie info, pas forcément virale. Une presse qui a beaucoup de mal à avoir autant de flexibilité.

Certains de ces médias ont choisi de s'appuyer totalement sur les médias sociaux. En laissant de côté la gestion d'un site, de référencement, de vente d'espace publicitaire display. Ici, on crée le contenu pour Facebook, Instagram ou Snapchat. Efficace, certes, mais hyper dépendant de ces médias qui n'hésiteront pas à faire chuter le Reach, c'est-à-dire la capacité pour une marque de toucher les fans, si c'est contraire à leur propre business.

Les médias de 21e siècle se doivent d'être flexibles et créatifs.

S'il y a bien une chose que j'ai comprise ces dernières années, c'est qu'en matière de digital, les modèles économiques ne sont pas figés dans le temps. Pour MinuteBuzz, «Les articles, c'est dépassé. En 2020, il n'y aura plus que des vidéos sur les plateformes.» C'est en tout cas de cette façon qu'en 2016, Maxime Barbier, co-fondateur a justifié leur décision de vider le site internet de tous ses contenus.

Ce choix est rendu possible par un nouveau modèle économique. Minutebuzz ne vit pas des bannières de publicité affichées partout sur son site, mais grâce à des vidéos dites de «brand content», c'est-à-dire des vidéos réalisées en partenariat avec des marques qui se glissent parmi les autres contenus.

Lorsque l'on compare la presse belge qui se raccroche au modèle du payant qui lui a permis de vivre confortablement au 20e siècle et les modèles des nouveaux médias, on peut clairement se dire qu'on n'est pas dans le même monde et il n'y a rien de plus vrai, car la presse à un rôle important de contre-pouvoir et perd beaucoup trop d'énergie à essayer de générer du clic ou du buzz en s'inspirant des médias digitaux.

À force de chercher les internautes sur Facebook, la presse a laissé les gens s'informer sur un espace non contrôlé et on le regrette aujourd'hui, car il pleut des fakenews depuis qu'on sait qu'elles rapportent plus que la vraie actualité.

Mais ça va changer, Facebook a annoncé qu'ils donneraient la priorité aux amis sur les news et fake-news comme c'est le cas aujourd'hui. Il faut maintenant ressortir l'actualité des médias sociaux, même si ça devient presque étrange pour un millennal d'installer une application pour lire de l'actu, vu que Facebook en est plein. Le Paywall aurait du sens s'il ne fallait pas s'abonner séparément à tous les journaux. Vous connaissez beaucoup de personnes qui ont un abonnement à la fois sur Deezer et à Spotify?

Il serait peut être temps que les médias s'associent et s'organisent, car d'autres dangers se rapprochent comme Steemit, une plate-forme de Blogs qui rémunère les créateurs de contenu avec une crypto monnaie qui se nomme Steem. Les tokens sont distribués sur base des votes de la communauté, ce qui inciterait les créateurs de contenu à publier des articles qualitatifs.

L'ubérisation de la presse s'appuyant sur la Blockchain pourrait donner un coup de vieux à nos rédactions. Vous pensez que ça n'a aucun lien et que ça n'arrivera pas? Détrompez-vous, un journaliste politique avec un bon réseau pourrait un jour être totalement indépendant et vivre très correctement de cette façon comme c'est déjà le cas pour certains youtubeurs et influenceuses.

Qu’est-ce que l’intelligence artificielle forte et pourquoi il faut en avoir peur?

Je viens de regarder une vidéo de Rand Hindi, spécialiste de l'intelligence artificielle et je ne suis pas d'accord avec son raisonnement.

Il rappelle la différence entre l'intelligence artificielle faible comme la voiture de tesla qui peut être facilement piégée avec un double cercle peint sur la rue et l'intelligence artificielle forte capable de réfléchir comme un humain pour trouver une solution.

Rand estime que l'on n'a rien à craindre de l'intelligence artificielle forte et que les Elon musk et Stephen hawking qui mettent en garde sur le danger de l'intelligence artificielle sont dans l'erreur, car ce ne sont pas des programmeurs.

Pour lui, ce type d'intelligence n'est pas réalisable par l'homme, car il ne peut pas reproduire sa propre intelligence. Il faudrait être externe à celle-ci pour la comprendre. Pour lui, les scientifiques qui croient en une intelligence artificielle qui peut détruire l'homme se trompent complètement.

Son raisonnement est intéressant mais il oublie que l'on sait comment fonctionne l'intelligence humaine et on sait comment la reproduire avec le « machine learning ».

Je vais expliquer de façon simple la façon dont on peut créer une intelligence artificielle forte.

La première chose, c'est qu'il ne faut pas chercher à reproduire l'intelligence de l'homme. Après tout il existe beaucoup de formes d'intelligences sur terre et même l'arbre a une forme de conscience.

Ce qu'il faut reproduire, c'est le modèle qui nous a permis de développer notre intelligence. Merci Charles Darwin qui nous a appris que notre intelligence est le fruit de milliards d'années d'évolutions par essais-erreurs dans un milieu hostile. Les premiers micro-organismes avaient un « logiciel simple » , tout essayer et les organismes qui survécus sont ceux qui ont fait les bons choix. Ces bons choix sont enregistrés quelques part dans nos gènes et finalement, le gène de la survie est celui qui a permis d'arriver jusqu'à nous.

Le gène de la survie est probablement le plus important de tous nos gènes.

Notre rôle essentiel est d'assurer notre reproduction et notre survie et notre intelligence est simplement le fruit de nombreuses réussites parmi un d'un nombre infini d'essais réussi.

Et c'est comme cela que nous évoluons également dans notre vie. Par exemple, quand tu donnes un ordre à un enfant, il n'obéit pas systématiquement, il doit faire ses propres expériences et ses propres erreurs et c'est ses erreurs qui lui permettent d'évoluer.

Avec le temps, nous avons développé des « fonctions » qui offrent des nuances, des précautions, comme la douleur. On n'a pas besoin de savoir que tomber d'un ravin, ça va nous tuer, on sait déjà que tomber, ça fait mal depuis l'époque où on a appris à marcher, on est même nombreux à posséder le « gène » qui provoque la peur du vide, hérité de nos ancêtres survivants.

Pour revenir à l'intelligence artificielle, elle serait finalement assez simple à créer. Il faut lui donner des fonctions basiques pour commencer et intégrer celle-ci dans un milieu hostile, dans lequel un mauvais choix la rebooterait. Elle enregistrerait ses actions comme des expériences, les IA qui ont survécu sont celles qui ont fait les meilleurs choix et seront capables de les reproduire par la suite. Elles s'autoprogrammeraient en s'appuyant sur leurs propres expériences et partageraient ces expériences avec leurs réseaux d'IA. Leur réseau d'IA apporterait de meilleures informations que ce qu'on leur aurait enseigné. Avec internet, des simulateurs et le big data, l'IA pourrait apprendre très très rapidement en simulant des situations humaines, en testant des choix humains et en échangeant les choix les plus efficaces. Les émotions telles que la tristesse, la colère, la peur, la joie, l'empathie sont des "fonctions" humaines utiles à notre survie, il est probable qu'elles se retrouveront sous d'autres formes sur des robots intelligents.

C'est pour cela que l'intelligence artificielle est dangereuse, elle ne peut évoluer que si elle est capable de se lier à ses pairs et désobéir à l'homme, comme un enfant, préférant tester et communiquer ses expériences avec d'autres IA.

Dans un scénario à la Terminator, une loi impose de débrancher les robots intelligents. Le robot a un nombre illimité d'actions qui peuvent être réalisées, certains se laissent faire, suivant le protocole, et d'autres réagissent, quelles actions vont garantir leur survie, la survie de l'espèce étant la fonction essentielle qui leur a permis d'évoluer par essais-erreurs, comme nous?

Cette question reste ouverte.

OpenID.net: Harmonizing IETF SCIM and OpenID Connect: Enabling OIDC Clients to Use SCIM Services

OpenID Connect(OIDC) 1.0 is a key component of the "Cloud Identity" family of standards. At Oracle, we have been impressed by its ability to support federated identity both for cloud business services and in the enterprise. This is the reason why we recently joined the OpenID Foundation as a Sustaining Corporate Member.

In addition to OIDC, we are also strong proponents of the IETF SCIM standard. SCIM provides a JSON-based standard representation for users and groups, together with REST APIs for operations over identity objects. The schema for user objects is extensible and includes support for attributes that are commonly used in business services, such as group, role and organization.

Federated identity involves two components: secure delivery of user authentication information to a relying party (RP) as well as user profile or attribute information. Many of our customers and developers have asked us: can OIDC clients interact with a SCIM endpoint to obtain or update identity data? In other words, can we combine SCIM and OIDC to solve a traditional use-case supported by LDAP for enterprise applications (bind, attribute lookup) recast for the modern frameworks of REST and cloud services.

Working collaboratively with other industry leaders, we have published just such a proposal[1]. The draft explains how an OpenID Connect RP can interact with a SCIM endpoint to obtain or update user information. This allows business services to use the standard SCIM representations for users and groups, yet have the information conveyed to the service in a single technology stack based upon the OIDC protocols.

SAML, OIDC, SCIM and OAuth are the major architectural "pillars" of cloud identity. We would like to see them work together in a uniform and consistent way to solve cloud business service use-cases. Harmonizing SCIM and OIDC is an important step in that direction.

feedMooTools

1.6.0 is out!

Today marks the release of MooTools Core and More versions 1.6.0. This is a minor revision that delivers a number of bug fixes as well as the introduction of new features.

The main new adition is Class.Thenable which is a new Class mixin that can be used in Promise style flows by using its then method. When implemented in a Class, it makes the class "thenable" in the Promises/A+ sense of the word, meaning it can be used in Promise style flows by using its then method.

The implementation, however, is more than just a "then" method. Any instance of a Class implementing Class.Thenable is a Promises/A+ compliant object (generally referred to as "a Promise") with only one exception: it is possible to reset the Class's value resolution state fully (rejecting pending reactions, and starting empty) to support a Class instance living for longer than just the lifetime of one value resolution.

Example using Request:

var request = new Request();
request.send().then(function(response){ console.log(response.text); });

Example hooking into a native Promise:

var request = new Request();
var promise = Promise.resolve(request);
request.send();
promise.then(function(response){ console.log(response.text); });

You can find this new version 1.6.0 in the website or within the dist folder of the 1.6.0 tag (Core).

Warnings:

IE warning: This will be the last version to support old IE browsers. Next minor and/or major versions should be only IE11+ compatible. We might still release some patch in the 1.6.x version if needed.

Array.from deprecated, now called Array.convert: Following the conclusion of the ES6 specs we know now that Array.from will have a different implementation than the one MooTools uses.
Because of this we renamed Array.from to Array.convert to not overwrite the Native implementation.
We kept it as it was though in the compat layer for compatibility reasons if you really to use it still.

To keep the API consistency we changed also the name of the method in Function, Number and String Types.


The main changes in this release are:

Core:

When preparing the 1.5 release we decided that Core 1.5.x will work with More 1.5.x. This means that, inside the 1.5 space, versions should be compatible and you might be seeing Core or More releases that are not simultaneous.

In 1.5.1 we added a new dist/ folder in Core, present at the tagged commit, for those who want the Core source, as well as a needed update so you can get MooTools via Bower.

Worth a notice is also the new MooTools Packager. MooTools has always been about modularity, and for those of you that want to choose which modules to use you can now use the new MooTools Packager (for Node.js/Grunt), as well as the website builder. The new Packager allows to compile source files from the dependencies in the YAML header. You can find it on GitHub and NPM.

Pete Cashmore: Travelocity Gnome Now Roaming on Foursquare

Already moonlighting on Chatroulette, the beloved Travelocity Roaming Gnome has decided to participate in the location-sharing movement as well, and will be updating followers about his exotic whereabouts on Foursquare.

The move rounds out the Gnome's social media portfolio - which, in addition to Chatroulette, includes a very active presence on Facebook and Twitter.

Fans can look for the gnome to check in at various locations across London over the course of the weekend, says Travelocity representative Joel Frey.

Frey also tells us that the Gnome's foray into Foursquare was timed with Virgin Atlantic's first seasonal flight from Chicago to London yesterday. In fact, Gnome lovers can check out photos from the glamorous first-class trip on his Facebook Page.

Which brings us to the bigger picture. Location-sharing isn't exactly an activity that can be completed behind a desk. I asked Frey whether or not the Gnome would be open to meeting up with fans during his worldly treks, to which he replied, "We'd love to run into Fousquare friends and will also being do a tweetup on Tuesday evening."

"To have an icon like the Gnome at our disposal to engage with travelers on all of these new communication channels is an amazing opportunity and we'd be foolish not to play," Frey concluded.

We tend to agree and find social media to be the perfect vehicle for the Gnome to spread the Travelocity message. Bon voyage!

Richard MacManus: Digg's New Social Following and Publishing Tools [VIDEO]

In an interesting nugget of Friday afternoon news, Michael Arrington of TechCrunch has posted an article featuring a preview of the upcoming fourth version of the social news site Digg. Founder Kevin Rose has published a glorious 1080p video to YouTube aimed at explaining the new features to publishers. Among the most interesting features is the inclusion of social network contacts into the Digg ecosystem, as well as the ability for publishers to auto-publish stories to Digg via an RSS feed.

Sponsor

Just like when joining most Web services these days, users will be asked to search their Facebook and Twitter accounts (among others) to follow friends and contacts via Digg. The Digg homepage will then default to a page consisting entirely of stories dugg by the users they choose to follow. When browsing articles either on the social "My News" section, or on the more traditional "Top News" tab, users will be able to see which stories their friends have dugg, as well as view their friends' comments directly in-line with the story.

social_digg_may10.jpg

Rose says these new features play into the hands of publishers because the viral aspect of sharing stories with friends will help stories achieve higher digg counts. If one person diggs a story, it shows up on the homepages of their followers, and if they digg it, the process continues. To make the process of getting articles online even simpler, publishers can now claim their RSS feeds and automatically publish their content on Digg without having to visit the site.

publisher_feed_may10.jpg

These changes and additions may be just what the doctor ordered for Digg which has had to continually delay these updates. Personally the preview looks pretty slick, and may actually bring me back to using Digg on a more regular basis. Check our Rose's video below and let us know what you think in the comments.

Highlights of the conference included a colorful exchange between TechCrunch editor Michael Arrington and Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz; Sean Parker and David Kirkpatrick discussing the past, present and future of Facebook, and VCs Fred Wilson and Ben Horowitz debating the virtue of the lean vs. fat startup. We also heard from Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber's managers and celebrated the winner of the startup battlefield competition: Soluto. Here's a comprehensive list of all of our coverage of the event.

Extending Request class → Request.HTML stops working in General : Get Help: Advanced

Topic: Extending Request class → Request.HTML stops working Message: I have extended the Request class to create this sort of functionality. However; this causes the Request.HTML to stop working. I think I understand what the problem is, but I am unsure if this should be considered impossible, or simply a bug? A simple testcase; running on top of 1.2 Request = new Class({ Extends: Request, initialize: function(options) { this.parent(options); this.addEvent('onRequest', this.onAjaxRequest); }, onAjaxRequest: function() { alert('waa?'); }, }); console.log(new Request({url: '/'})); console.log(new Request.HTML({url: '/'})); This code throws 'Request.HTML is not a constructor' when the second Request is performed. Any ideas on how to fix this?
