Feb 2012: The Artist

Feb 2012: The Artist | A Year in 12 Posts | Scoop.it

"The Artist, a love letter to Hollywood, got hugs, kisses and the best-picture Oscar"  - The New York Times

Marc Rougier's insight:

5 Oscar, including best actor for Jean Dujardin. And first best-picture award for a silent film since first ceremony in 1929. A Touching film, with daring choices (black and white, silent) and great actors. And also probably a superb marketing campain.


Google get clearance for its $12.5B bid on Motorola. Seems to me like Google went into mobile just yesterday. The pace at which the mobile world is reshaping is amazing ; the Android v. Apple battle is epic.


And for the geekiest : IBM getting closer to Quantum Computing! (can someone please explain this ?).

Marc Rougier's insight:

No deal so far. But clearly a milestones for the Social Web. Shanghai Web Designers had this great infographic "What's happening on the web in 60 sec". E.g.: 694,445 queries on Google, 695,000 status updates on Facebook, 98,000 tweets.
