Il y a quelques jours, Opera a jeté l’éponge sur Presto et rejoint le mouvement Webkit. J’avoue avoir quelques doutes sur les conséquences stratégiques de ce mouvement pour Opera, mais ce n’est pas de cela que traite mon billet. Cette volte-face est bien entendu décevante. Décevante pour la communauté Mozilla car il semble bien que nous venons de perdre notre plus solide allié dans le combat pour la vie privée et le web ouvert. Décevante aussi car la raison avancée par Opera pour cet abandon est qu’il avait trop de développeurs qui développaient non pas des applications web mais des applications webkit.

 

 

C’est bien ce point qui m’inquiète, car il s’agit d’un réel danger pour l’avenir du web entier. À chaque fois qu’une application est développée à partir de standards ouverts, elle peut fonctionner sur tous les navigateurs standards – pas uniquement les navigateurs principaux, mais aussi des navigateurs moins connus ou des navigateurs qui n’existent pas encore. À l’inverse, par définition, une application webkit ne fonctionnera que sur les navigateurs webkit. Si vous êtes un développeur web, souvenez-vous de ces chiffres : cela signifie que votre application va rejeter environ 60% de ses utilisateurs potentiels. Et encore, ce chiffre suppose que 1/ tous les utilisateurs actuels d’Opera vont passer à webkit ; 2/ tous les navigateurs webkit sont compatibles bug-pour-bug et bizarrerie-pour-bizarrerie, ce qui est loin d’être le cas.

Auf dem 28C3 warnte Cory Doctorow in seinem Vortrag vor dem "kommenden Krieg gegen universelle Computer" (deutsche Transkription von Christian Wöhrl). Nach Doctorows Ansicht besteht ein massives wirtschaftliches Interesse daran, universelle Computer, die jede beliebige Software ausführen können, abzuschaffen – so, wie sich derzeit die Unterhaltungsindustrie Computer wünscht, auf denen man Filme, Musik, Bücher und Zeitschriften zwar konsumieren, aber nicht kopieren und weitergeben kann. Angesichts der fortschreitenden Computerisierung aller Lebensbereiche, spekuliert der Blogger, sei der derzeitige Kampf ums Copyright nur der Beginn einer langen Auseinandersetzung um universelle Computer.

Die aktuellen Entwicklungen, die sich im Kontext der Einführung von Windows 8 und der UEFI-Funktion Secure Boot im PC-Markt abzeichnen, lassen diese Befürchtungen durchaus berechtigt erscheinen. Mit Secure Boot, für ARM-Rechner mit Windows 8 verbindlich vorgeschrieben und auch für die x86-Welt auf der Agenda, könnte die Zeit zu Ende gehen, wo der Eigentümer eines PC selbst entscheiden kann, welches Betriebssystem und welche Software er auf seinem Rechner laufen lässt.

The plugin, which came out of beta today, works with a list of sites that support HTTPS, but may be doing so in an incomplete or limited fashion. If a site defaults to unencrypted HTTP or links to unencrypted pages, the plugin will rewriting requests so that true HTTPS is utilized. It currently works with a number of big sites, including Google Search, Wikipedia, Twitter, Facebook, bit.ly, PayPal and all Wordpress.com blogs.

---------------------------------

What's especially neat about it is that someone who has never programmed -- someone who doesn't even know what a program is -- can learn to write code that solves this problem in less than three hours. I've seen it happen. All it takes is a little hunger. You just have to want the answer.

That's the pedagological ballgame: get your student to want to find something out. All that's left after that is to make yourself available for hints and questions. "That student is taught the best who is told the least."

It's like sitting a kid down at the ORIC-1. Kids are naturally curious. They love blank slates: a sandbox, a bag of LEGOs. Once you show them a little of what the machine can do they'll clamor for more. They'll want to know how to make that circle a little smaller or how to make that song go a little faster. They'll imagine a game in their head and then relentlessly fight to build it.

Along the way, of course, they'll start to pick up all the concepts you wanted to teach them in the first place. And those concepts will stick because they learned them not in a vacuum, but in the service of a problem they were itching to solve.

Project Euler, named for the Swiss mathematician Leonhard Euler, is popular (more than 150,000 users have submitted 2,630,835 solutions) precisely because Colin Hughes -- and later, a team of eight or nine hand-picked helpers -- crafted problems that lots of people get the itch to solve. And it's an effective teacher because those problems are arranged like the programs in the ORIC-1's manual, in what Hughes calls an "inductive chain":

The problems range in difficulty and for many the experience is inductive chain learning. That is, by solving one problem it will expose you to a new concept that allows you to undertake a previously inaccessible problem. So the determined participant will slowly but surely work his/her way through every problem.

This is an idea that's long been familiar to video game designers, who know that players have the most fun when they're pushed always to the edge of their ability. The trick is to craft a ladder of increasingly difficult levels, each one building on the last. New skills are introduced with an easier version of a challenge -- a quick demonstration that's hard to screw up -- and certified with a harder version, the idea being to only let players move on when they've shown that they're ready. The result is a gradual ratcheting up the learning curve.

ARL Releases Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Academic and Research Libraries

The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) announces the release of the Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Academic and Research Libraries, a clear and easy-to-use statement of fair and reasonable approaches to fair use developed by and for librarians who support academic inquiry and higher education. The Code was developed in partnership with the Center for Social Media and the Washington College of Law at American University. Winston Tabb, Johns Hopkins University Dean of University Libraries and Museums and President of ARL, said, “This document is a testament to the collective wisdom of academic and research librarians, who have asserted careful and considered approaches to some very difficult situations that we all face every day.”

24 Usability Testing Tools | Useful Usability - 2009-12-02 | oAnth-miscellaneous | Scoop.it
“In the past few years, there has been massive growth in new and exciting cheap or free web site usability testing tools, so here’s my list of 24 tools you may need to use from time to time. Gone are the days of using expensive recruitment firms, labs and massive amounts of time to create, deploy and report on usability tests. By using these usability testing tools and others like them, you have for the first time a complete set of tools designed to tackle almost any usability research job. From recruiting real users (with tools such as Ethnio) to conducting live one on one remote moderated tests (UserVue) to analyzing results of usability changes using A/B testing (Google Website Optimizer), there is a plethora of useful and usable tools to conduct usability testing."
