It's been quite busy weeks lately, .digital is getting some traction, we moved to DigitYser, a new digital flagship in Brussels, between taking care of clients, networking and doing some more prospection I have had barely the time to blog here, but be sure that I'm building the bases to get serious about blogging and telling stories in the future, I just need some more stability on my income streams and things will be easier to manage when this goal is reached.

Armada.digital is moving office to @digityserbe thanks to @pvanimpe amazing spirit & generous collaboration, future is bright!

redesign: feels like an instagram clone & I'm tweeting/tooting this from my own website :)

The best way to be informed in 2017 is to build your own information network: from mapping sources to disseminating key curated content to receiving the finalized info signal, it's the only way to control what type of information you get, only way to embed diversity of signal in the generated mass of content.

if you don't, you end-up eating the same information everyone is getting, either by algorithmic driven curation/popular content or by same-friends influence ending up in a virtual bubble limited by your contacts or the way you train your personal algorithmic curation.

The information perception spectrum is huge: from right to left, conservative to liberal, far-right to far-left, nationalist, patriots, internationalist,, atheist to religious zealots, the fact is the ongoing narrative collapse is making all these currents overlap on key issues, from trade to foreign policy to climate, it's like in 2017 with all the technology and possibilities that are offered the information landscape has never been so broken, unable to inform, educate, leverage the use of these amazing possibilities to massively elevate the debate, the choices we make as Humans, no matter where we live.

in 2017 Ignorance is still King, our very own Democratic Representatives are unable or unfit to understand the complexity of the world we live in, our democratic models are out-dated, our governance models are corrupt, corporate lobbying has more access to shaping laws than the very citizens impacted by policy-making. In short our democratic system, be it in Europe or the USA or Asia, Africa is suffering from the same disease but at different stage of metastases.

The ultimate question is: what do we do about it ?

Note to self : read any file overwrite dialog twice before taking an action when doing a system upgrade!

What I really miss on Nylas Mail is Labels/Filters and ability to set rules that will apply labels based on filters automatically, with no human intervention once it is setup.

Ecouter un artiste pincer sa guitare depuis la fenêtre ouverte au dessus du Bonnefoi et se dire que travailler pour soi le weekend c'est quand même cool :)
