    "acebook has finally revealed the details of its cryptocurrency, Libra, which will let you buy things or send money to people with nearly zero fees.

(5) Internet ou la révolution du partage | ARTE - YouTube - 1 views

  •  
    "Depuis la généralisation d'Internet dans tous les domaines de la société, la problématique des logiciels propriétaires, opposés aux logiciels libres, est devenue cruciale, quoiqu'encore ignorée par la grande majorité des utilisateurs. Par définition, le logiciel libre peut être exploité, amélioré et distribué par tous. Or, la plupart des logiciels auxquels nous recourons quotidiennement sont dit "propriétaires" : leur code source appartient à de grandes entreprises, qui en tirent des bénéfices conséquents. Les résistants de l'open source y voient ainsi un enjeu philosophique autant qu'un choix de société : les nouvelles technologies devraient être contrôlées par leurs utilisateurs, plutôt que de limiter leur liberté à leur trouver des alternatives."

Half an Hour: Beyond Free ‑ Open Learning in a Networked World - 0 views

    "We need to be open not in the big things, but also the little thing , like embargos.  (Confederation of Open Access Repositories, 2014) The little things like this talk. The little things like this slide. The little things like this picture of boats shooting at each other. Open content, open access, open learning. These are not only a part of democracy, a part of the free exchange of ideas, a part of the culture of learning, but they define all of these, and they define our system of free and open government.  (Jarche, 2014) These things depend on them. When I say the institution has different values from us, it's important to understand exactly what it is that the institution has different values from."
