OECD Security guidelines

"Explosive growth in use of information systems for all manner of applications in all parts of life has made their security essential.

Steve Jobs
A stimulating but somewhat pesssimistic interview of Steve Jobs about the WEB and programming objects. He opens up interesting perspectives on Web development in relation to society and in particular concerning education. See also Steve G. Steinberg's article about Web Objects on the same pages.

L'idéographie dynamique

"Plutôt que de se cripser sur la défense de l'imprimerie classique, pourquoi ne pas transformer l'image animée elle-même en technologie intellectuelle, pourquoi ne pas inventer une écriture qui soit en phase avec la nouvelle écologie cognitive de l'ère audio-visuelle?"
