Canada: "Connected for Success" rolls out to families and youth in Toronto Community Housing | TorontoHousing.ca | Cultures digitales, Gouvernance | Scoop.it

Rogers Communications today officially launched Connected for Success, a pilot program offering affordable broadband internet, a subsidized computer and software to residents of Toronto Community Housing (TCH). Connected for Success began its roll out in the Cooper Mills community today where Toronto Community Housing residents were among the first to sign up for the program.

 

Part of the Rogers Youth Fund initiative and with support from Compugen and Microsoft Canada, the program is designed to bring more youth online and give them the tools and resources needed to succeed in Canada's digital future. Through an established relationship with Toronto Community Housing, Connected for Success has the potential to reach over 150,000 low-income residents.

 

"There is a digital divide in Canada and we see a huge potential to bridge it by providing youth and families with access to an affordable broadband connection," said Rob Bruce, President of Communications, Rogers Communications. "Across Canada, internet penetration is more than sixty per cent and in Toronto Community Housing it's only twenty per cent. We have a tremendous opportunity working with Toronto Community Housing to reach thousands of families and youth, enabling them to build digital skills that will contribute to their future success."

"Your persona has evolved beyond the personal and purely physical and you are also now a digital and online netizen that is found by a mathematical algorithm that is served up for all to view to every corner of the globe by an unforgiving and uncaring computer server that sits quietly in the dark in a data farm in the backwoods of California."

4 Key Steps:

1. Understand the Rules of the Game (i.e., how Googling works)

2. Be Proactive

3. Start Sharing

Derrière Internet, il n'y a pas que l'armée américaine: découvrez l'impact de la contre-culture U.S.

Derrière Internet, il n'y a pas que l'armée américaine: découvrez l'impact de la contre-culture U.S. | Cultures digitales, Gouvernance | Scoop.it
Si on parcourt le Web chaque jour, on connaît souvient bien peu de chose sur sa structure ou sa genèse. Dans ce récit très riche, Quentin Noirfalisse propose d'aller à la rencontre des philosophies et des influences ayant marqué les début d'Internet.

 

8 Avril 2011. En pleine bagarre budgétaire au Congrès américain, le Pentagone sort discrètement un rapport, le "National Strategic Narrative", pondu par M. Y, en clin d’œil au texte de George Kennan. Derrière les lettres M. Y se profilent deux membres du Comité des chefs d’États-majors interarmées: le capitaine Wayne Porter et le Colonel Mark "Puck" Mykleby.

 

Tout en rappelant qu’il ne reflète que le point de vue de ses deux auteurs ou celui du Pentagone (qui a néanmoins autorisé sa diffusion), ce document tente de jeter les bases d’une nouvelle stratégie américaine pour le 21e siècle. Porter et Mykleby conseillent aux États-Unis de cesser de concevoir leur rapport au monde sous l’angle de la défense et d’investir davantage "d’énergie, de talent et de dollars dans l’éducation et la formation des jeunes Américains" que dans les dépenses militaires. ...

NC: The Curious Tale of Raleigh’s Free Downtown Wi-Fi | Raleigh Public Record

NC: The Curious Tale of Raleigh’s Free Downtown Wi-Fi | Raleigh Public Record | Cultures digitales, Gouvernance | Scoop.it

The company running Raleigh’s downtown free Wi-Fi went bankrupt last year — and forgot to tell the city, according to city staff.

 

The city lost $12,000 on the deal and has since been working to pick up the pieces.

 

Downtown Raleigh’s free wireless Internet network provides Internet access to anyone within its eight areas of coverage, and it is now accessed an average of more than 400 times per day.

 

Operated through a series of access points housed atop city roofs and parking garages, the network was first installed in 2009 by Wind Channel, a private vendor contracted by the city. The company was also hired to run and maintain the network, which it did until May 8, 2012.

 

On that day, a routine network outage led the city to discover that Wind Channel had closed shop and gone out of business — seemingly overnight. At this point, the company had already been paid in full for its 2012 maintenance contract: a total of $18,446.

 

“We were left just kind of holding the bag,” said Raul Yanez, a business relationships manager with Raleigh’s IT Department.

 

“Once they shut their doors,” he explained, “pretty much everything came to a screeching halt as far as support went.”

 

Yanez said the city was unable to contact anyone with either Wind Channel or its parent company, Airimba Wireless. At that point, the city’s IT Department was forced to step in and take control, integrating support and maintenance of the free Wi-Fi network in with those it already monitored.

 

The department was able to do so, Yanez said, without hiring additional staff or incurring additional expenses.

Google se lance dans les ordinateurs quantiques avec D-Wave Systems

Google se lance dans les ordinateurs quantiques avec D-Wave Systems | Cultures digitales, Gouvernance | Scoop.it

La société D-Wave Systems prétend depuis des années être en mesure de commercialiser des calculateurs quantiques avec plus de 100 qubits intriqués. La communauté scientifique est majoritairement sceptique, mais Google vient d'annoncer qu'il a acheté l’un de ces calculateurs et que la Nasa l'utilisera aussi.

Découvrez notre dossier sur l'ordinateur quantique

Le concept d'ordinateur quantique, introduit il y a plusieurs décennies par Richard Feynman et d’autres chercheurs, continue de faire rêver. Il permettrait de briser les limites des ordinateurs classiques pour certains types de calculs. On ne sait pas encore fabriquer de tels ordinateurs au sens exact du terme. Mais on est capable de réaliser des calculateurs ou des simulateurs spécialisés, capables de manipuler non plus des bits mais bien des qubits d’informations, tout comme les ordinateurs quantiques. ...

Security researchers demonstrate how any iOS device can be hacked in one minute with modified charger

Security researchers demonstrate how any iOS device can be hacked in one minute with modified charger | Cultures digitales, Gouvernance | Scoop.it

The researchers, from Georgia Institute of Technology, are set to demonstrate their proof-of-concept charger at the next Black Hat security conference, scheduled to be held from July 27 to Aug. 1 at the Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.

 

Here’s an abstract of their presentation at the upcoming conference:

 

"In this presentation, we demonstrate how an iOS device can be compromised within one minute of being plugged into a malicious charger. We first examine Apple’s existing security mechanisms to protect against arbitrary software installation, then describe how USB capabilities can be leveraged to bypass these defense mechanisms. To ensure persistence of the resulting infection, we show how an attacker can hide their software in the same way Apple hides its own built-in applications."

 

The researchers plan to offer suggestions during their presentation so that users and Apple itself can make the hack in question harder for hackers to carry out.

GA: Lighting up the Atlanta Beltline with "gigabit" Internet | AtlanTech

The Atlanta Beltline could soon have zippy Internet connectivity — in addition to its speedy bike trails.

 

The City of Atlanta is considering lighting up the 22-mile corridor with "gigabit Internet" — ultra-fast Internet access via fiber optic cable. FTTP (fiber-to-the-premise) technology delivers Internet speeds of between 10Mbps and 300 Mbps. Internet speeds via coaxial cable connection, in comparison, typically ranges between 1Mbps and 6Mbps.

 

The Beltline is an ambitious redevelopment, transforming historic railroad corridors circling downtown and connecting 45 neighborhoods with a network of public parks, multi-use trails and transit.

 

Atlanta’s economic developers wants to drive commerce to the Beltline and hope high-speed Internet connectivity will lure tech, digital media and health care firms. Such businesses need to transfer large files electronically and stream high definition video and audio.

 

"The high-speed Internet access will support greater innovation and entrepreneurs," said Eloisa Klementich, director of business development with Invest Atlanta, the city’s economic development arm. "The key is at what price."

 

Indeed, installing high-speed fiber optic cable in built-up areas is expensive because it requires tearing up streets to lay down the cable.

 

The Beltline, however, is undergoing major renovations and infrastructure upgrades, including the laying of pipes that will deliver electricity and other utilities. Those pipes could also carry the fiber optic cables, Klementich said.
