Bonne surprise littéraire hier

Frédéric Beigbeder a sorti un nouveau livre: Windows on the World.
Mais bon... trop de livres à lire en ce moment... il attendra encore quelques semaines...

Post Scriptum about Werber and Dantec ;)

And I know perfectly that Dantec does not love Werber ;-).

Werber: un Dantec soft ?

« Election parlementaire. Un politicien de l'opposition annonce que le «  le problème dans ce pays, c'est qu'il n'y a plus de motivation. Tout le monde ne pense qu'à son petit confort personnel immédiat. On ne se bat plus pour être les premiers mais pour ne pas trop vite être les derniers ». Il ajoute « et si ce n'était que ça ! les entrepreneurs sont démotivés par les taxes et la paperasserie, les créateurs de richesse sont démotivés par les impôts, tout est fait dans ce pays comme si on voulait juste égaliser tout le monde dans la défaite ». »

Bernard Werber, L'ultime secret (2001)
[page 124, Éditions Le Livre de Poche]

I am alive!

Yes ;)

Many things to come, starting next week (-end?)...

After my month of Java lazy coding, the W3Framework (Wittycube Framework) is going on very fast and the first application using it, Atlas, is close to be running completely (in fact what is running is what will become the first plugin set available). Atlas is an incredible application to handle “Manufactured Serendipity”.
The core parts of Atlas will serve as foundations for the W3Platform (the high level of the Wittycube Kromacube-OS), actually in planning stage (hey! we do not build a new “Operating System” from scratch like that ;)...).

Go dumb

"A Japanese researcher, Akio Mori, from the Nihon University's College of Humanities and Sciences, claims to have found a link between the playing of video games and the balance of activity in the brain. It is also claimed that this effect can cause behavioural changes, such as lack of concentration, difficulty with social association, and short temper. These effects are also thought to be, to some extent, nonreversible."

(On Slashdot: Video Games Found To Decrease Brain Activity, via TIg3rt Labs: A Quote from the scene.)

A bit more here.

In fact, this is a bit strange, cos I have heard an opposite story about Quake some times ago.
