visions - Laurence Allard, le nouveau monde connecté. Une autre relation entre entités vivantes et machiniques | Web 2.0 et société | Scoop.it
Pour Laurence Allard, l’usage du mobile s’est construit dans une logique «non compétitive», voie que doit suivre l’Internet des objets.
BeerBergman's insight:

Je découvre Laurence Allart et sa vision résolument utopiste d'Internet et des technologies... Intéressant ! A lire. Extrait.

"Le mobile, explique-t-elle en détail dans notre long entretien, est selon les termes de Michel Foucault une «technologie du soi». Il permet à chacun d’exprimer son intériorité, de la cultiver via ses messages, ses photos ou ses vidéos, mais aussi de la partager avec d’autres. "

Pourquoi mon peignoir connecté peut-il me rendre meilleur chaque matin ? | Le Cercle Les Echos

BeerBergman's insight:

The article describes the - supposed - influence of a connected object, the peignoir, to enhance everyday life: it describes how the connected peignoir, not only a connected object but also a learning object, changes the habits and helps the user through its actual use of the object, to adjust his habits to its imperatives. An exemple of how human - technologie interactivity will probably shape our actual lives a few years on. 

***

Interesting article: from the use of the central notion "better [person]" to the integration of technology in everyday life. As for the first notion, the use of the word "better" (meilleur) in relation to the person : how can an object, connected as it is, make somebody "a better person"? What is a "better person"? What is the opposite of "the better person"?

***

The concept of connected items is in the center of attention of researchers, philosophers and sociologists, as well as journalists. The exemple of the connected peignoir is a nice exemple of how technology is supposed to augment our physical lifes. The main question is: how normative is the "embetterment", how effective we want to become and at what cost?

***

This type of technology being mostly in the hands of and used by early adopters, its testing takes place on a real life scale, and research is probably using clinical investigation as well as real life observations.

***

The outcome may well not be the "better person", and the technology here invoked may probably serve completely other purposes a couple of years from now, but the real life testing of the early adopters and the observations noted in the online press as well as in scientific journals is highly exciting!
