Diffusion et distribution (importance des métadonnées) "Fini les tergiversations, l'avènement du numérique et d'une nouvelle manière de consommer oblige les commerçants à se réinventer. Sans traîner : l'arrivée de l'Internet mobile, qui amène le Web dans la poche du quidam, a encore accéléré la mutation. "A la fin, les gagnants seront ceux qui maîtriseront parfaitement le Web et le magasin", martèle Delphine Mathez, consultante senior au sein du cabinet Roland Berger. L'un ne va déjà plus sans l'autre. Incontournable, le commerce en ligne représente entre 5 % et 20 % des ventes, selon les domaines. Premiers touchés, les produits culturels et techniques, suivis par le vêtement."
Front Machine to Machine to the Internet id things. "The idea there is to be able to analyze sensor-based data from all these sources so as to better coordinate them and make cities more efficient, both to live in and in terms of energy use. For example, sensors in parking bays might help drivers find a space more easily, cutting down on the emissions that might come from driving around unnecessarily."
"Even still, projects like this one are fascinating from an urban planning perspective. A relatively simple analysis of big data reveals, with extreme specificity, where various nationalities reside inside a giant urban melting pot. Even the minor possible interactions one can glean from this--like should the city distribute language-specific emergency information to certain blocks?--seem powerful on the sense of scale alone."
Two-thirds of marketers say they are investing more in data-related areas in 2013, with most expecting to use findings gleaned from social media to drive campaigns in the coming year. Marketers worldwide are continuing to invest in making sense of the surge of data produced by digital interactions with customers—68% said they will increase data-related marketing spending in 2013.
In an important update, Phase 2 of the overall effort to centralize access to and management of structured data – which was in development as Phase 1 progressed – saw its first fruits for use on Wikidata.org (not yet on Wikipedia) earlier this month: Infoboxes. It is gathering Infobox-related data with the goal of filling Infoboxes with data from Wikidata. At some point, this should translate to each language Wikipedia not having to store its own Infobox information.
"Clairement, la question n’est plus de savoir si les entreprises vont ouvrir l’accès à leurs données, mais plutôt comment et pour qui. La RATP, avec la démarche globale d’ouverture des données publiques, initiée par l’État français dans le cadre de la mission Etalab, illustre bien cette question."
When it comes to discoverability and walled gardens, there’s a flip side.
Josée Plamondon's insight:
"Discoverability is a problem for publishers, maybe not so much for readers
"It is in publishers’ best interest to help readers find a not-so-well-known book, but it is not necessarily in readers’ best interest to read that book. It’s also unclear whether the average reader is really having all that much trouble finding the next book he or she wants to read."
Standardisation pour accessibilité universelle et diffusion optimale des contenus. Métadonnées.
""The goal of this W3C Workshop, organized in partnership with IDPF and BISG, is to bring together major players of the eBooks market, including publishers, standardization organizations, booksellers, accessibility organizations, etc, to bring eBook publishing to its full potential through standardization."
Indicate clearly under which conditions you make your dataset (content and / or metadata) available. See also the last point above.The preferences vary among developers and other re-users. Some are happy with a simple .csv or .txt dump of metadata, others rather have access to a full live API, where you can choose to access data in different ways (e.g. JSON, .xml). Whatever your options or limitations are, at least make sure you always clearly describe what people can find in your metadata fields in your data blog, and provide re-users with as many options as possible to approach, download and search through your data. If you have an API, then describe which standard you’re using and where re-users can find more information about it.Describe clearly in your data blog or – even better – in your metadata when the latest changes to your dataset were made. If changes occur regularly, provide an update incrementally, or even offer multiple versions of your dataset."
A recent VentureBeat article argues that "Big Data" is dead. It's been killed by marketers. . Regardless of the technology, the trough of the hype cycle is driven by by a familiar set of causes: it’s fed by over-agressive marketing, the longing for a silver bullet that doesn’t exist, and the desire to spout the newest buzzwords. All of these phenomena breed cynicism. Perhaps the most dangerous is the technologist who never understands the limitations of data, never understands what data isn’t telling you, or never understands that if you ask the wrong questions, you’ll certainly get the wrong answers.
"A key topic at the open data summit was the issue of standardization. As governments and other agencies open their data vaults, there is no established standard for how citizens can use data to communicate and interact with their governments."
In Austin, maps are color-coded by comfort level rather than traffic-engineering standards. " One of the things Wilkes and his colleagues are trying to achieve with the map is to show just what is available that meets the very highest comfort level. “We want people to see, hey, look at all these places you can go even with your kids.” At the same time, the map is helpful to planners because it shows comfort gaps in the network so clearly – spaces where the green and blue bits need to be filled in."
"While some use of iPads and other tablets that receive broadband in the home will be included in the first phase of measurement improvements, a second phase is envisioned to include such devices in a more comprehensive fashion. The second phase is envisioned to roll out on a slower timetable, according to sources, will the overall goal to attempt to capture video viewing of any kind from any source."
Improving the "discoverability" of commercial offers. "According to Verve Mobile’s findings, using geoaware and geofence data to target campaigns led to higher clickthrough rates than any of the other location-based methods. Marketers increasingly look to make investments in mobile, many are beginning to use the targeting opportunities offered by the phone—especially the ability to access a user’s immediate location."

Josée Plamondon's insight:
La découverte de contenus musicaux expliquée.
"To make music discovery more accessible, it should be directly integrated into Daisy. A listener’s library should be the “musical brain” that powers the experience, shuffling in old favorites and next hits. It should be the central location where the songs a listener has collected from the physical and digital worlds are, and where disparate online identities are seamlessly unified. It should be a map that guides them — enhancing activities and brightening moods — without needing to be “seeded” with artists or songs to grow."
Com o objectivo de dinamizar o mercado de soluções Open Source em Portugal, a ESOP surge como plataforma promotora de oportunidades e sinergias tanto no mercado, como entre os seus associados e parceiros.
Josée Plamondon's insight:
"The Portuguese Government has published the National Digital Interoperability Regulation , which defines the list of open standards to be adopted in the Portuguese public administration. This framework brings to life the existing Law of Open Standards . It is part of the larger ICT reform program that aims to save 500M EUR/year while providing stimulus to the local economy."
