Knowledge to share and collective behaviours to adopt to build and foster a sustainable future for all of us. «The future is already here – it's just not evenly distributed» William Gibson, who invented the word «Cyberspace»
It is commonly believed that information spreads between individuals like a pathogen, with each exposure by an informed friend potentially resulting in a naive individual becoming infected. However, empirical studies of social media suggest that individual response to repeated exposure to information is far more complex. As a proxy for intervention experiments, we compare user responses to multiple exposures on two different social media sites, Twitter and Digg. We show that the position of exposing messages on the user-interface strongly affects social contagion. Accounting for this visibility significantly simplifies the dynamics of social contagion. The likelihood an individual will spread information increases monotonically with exposure, while explicit feedback about how many friends have previously spread it increases the likelihood of a response. We provide a framework for unifying information visibility, divided attention, and explicit social feedback to predict the temporal dynamics of user behavior.

L’explosion des données va changer durablement l’entreprisePendant près d’une heure, Kenneth Cukier nous a parlé des Big Datas tel qu’il les voit et tel que l’on doit les voir. Pour lui, la data est une « ressource », car c’est ce qu’on en fait qui donne de la valeur. Les big datas transforment le monde et vont contribuer à changer notre mode de vie, notre façon de travailler et de penser. Selon lui, « il faudra attendre encore entre cinq et dix ans pour réellement voir les conséquences de cette transformation». Les big datas transcendent désormais tous les domaines et sont par conséquent au cœur de nombreux débats...
The Global Language Monitor site has labeled big data the Top Tech Buzzword That Everybody Uses But Don’t Quite Understand, and a lot of people hate the term. Among other things, critics point out that “big data” has been around for a long, long time.

Claude Emond's insight:
I am a big fan of Jeremy Rifkin. This little summary of his coming book is very enlightening and, as usual, presents a highly probable, and this time quite optimistic view of our near future!...«We are, however, entering a world partly beyond markets, where we are learning how to live together in an increasingly interdependent, collaborative, global commons.»
