Quelle mobilité pour quelle urbanité? - Jacques LEVY (video)

La mobilité ne se réduit pas au simple déplacement. Rapport social au changement de lieu, elle comprend une partie non actualisée, d'autant plus importante que l'accessibilité s'étend. La mobilité est l'une des trois grandes méthodes de gestion de la distance, avec la coprésence et la télé-communication. Sa spécificité est de se confronter et de s'articuler, à travers ses réseaux, aux autres "couches" de l'espace habité. Avec ses métriques, pédestres ou automobile

Trusted Computing: Questioning What You Think You Know
Eugene provokes us to question some assumptions related to computer architecture, the definitions of security, and how best to build trusted systems. Are current methods of defining security appropriate? How might we better design a system to be secured? A great deal of the trust we think we can place (or not) in our computing systems is based on experience with the ones we commonly use. However, those computing systems continue to be victimized by a variety of failures and attacks. Perhaps some

Alfred Hitchcock : pour une réévaluation de la période anglaise. Conférence de Marcos Uzal

Les partisans de "la politique des auteurs", qui firent d'Hitchcock un exemple, étaient à la fois hollywoodophiles et hostiles au cinéma anglais. Ce qui engendra une certaine minoration de la période anglaise du cinéaste. L'opposition entre les deux périodes s'avère aujourd'hui bien schématique et injuste, et les films anglais d'Hitchcock méritent d'être considérés autrement que comme d'intéressants tâtonnements : le génie y fait plus que sommeiller.
