En vrac depuis Amsterdam


today you no longer need to be as brilliant as John Carmack to achieve success, and John Carmack himself will be the first to tell you that. Where John was sitting in a cubicle by himself in Mesquite, Texas for 80 hours a week painstakingly inventing all this stuff from first principles, on hardware that was barely capable, you have a supercomputer in your pocket, another supercomputer on your desk, and two dozen open source frameworks and libraries that can do 90% of the work for you. You have GitHub, Wikipedia, Stack Overflow, and the whole of the Internet.

En vrac du mercredi

  • Bon papier de Bruce Schneier sur l'avenir de l'Internet : "The Internet is what we make it, and is constantly being recreated by organizations, companies, and countries with specific interests and agendas. Either we fight for a seat at the table, or the future of the Internet becomes something that is done to us." - "L'Internet est ce qu'on en fait, et il est perpétuellement en train d'être refaçonné par des organisations, des sociétés et des pays qui ont des intérêts particuliers et des objectifs. Soit nous nous battons pour faire entendre notre voix, soit le futur de l'Internet nous sera imposé".
  • Relax! You’ll Be More Productive ;
  • Peu à peu, les Américains se lassent de Facebook. "La désaffection du réseau social est beaucoup plus marquée chez les moins de 30 ans : près de 40% d’entre eux prévoit d’y consacrer moins de temps cette année." ;

Firefox OS App Days in Paris

Over the week-end, More than 150 people gathered in an engineering school classroom to learn, hack and celebrate:

  • Learn about HTML5 and Web applications.
  • Hack such applications for Firefox OS (and Firefox for Android) with the assistance of Mozilla hackers.
  • Celebrate that we're changing the world with what could become a universal mobile application platform.

FirefoxOSappDays Paris: demo time!

Mozillians (paid staff and volunteers) gave talks about mobile development with HTML5 on Firefox OS, then the hacking session started, with Mozillians helping those who wanted. In the meantime, updates on Twitter connected us with the 25 or so other App Days events taking place around the world.

At the end of the day, 36 applications were ready to be demoed, and the authors of the best demos have received a voucher for the upcoming and very cool Firefox OS developer preview phones. Of course, everyone has been handed a T-shirt!

I would like to thank all the people who helped making this amazing event possible. I won't name names because I would surely forget someone, but you know who you are. The event was a blast and it demonstrated the hunger for an Open Web mobile platform like Firefox OS!
