    1. Near the end of the conversation, the interviewer complained about how difficult it is to find good writers these days

      the reason why the author wrote this article

    1. Tomber amoureux, c’est s’émerveiller et se laisser surprendre et sur les sites de rencontres, ça ne fonctionne pas. C’est très laconique mais c’est ça. Ils sont organisés de telle façon qu’on renonce à nos capacités d’émerveillement jusqu’à ce qu’on devienne un consommateur fidèle du site. On tombe souvent amoureux après sa désinscription d’ailleurs. 

      Avis personnel de l'auteur et vision assez limitée du champ des possibles qu'offre une (des) rencontre(s) qu'elle soit virtuelle ou non.

    2. Ce sont les sites de rencontres entre Musulmans, comme Mektoube. Eux marchent fort. Les sites communautaristes, il en existe plein. Beaucoup créent le site de rencontre pour agriculteur, peur ceux qui mangent bio, pour ceux qui votent à droite. Mais ça ne marche pas du tout. Alors que les sites musulmans cartonnent vraiment. Ça en dit déjà long sur le communautarisme religieux qui existe dans notre pays.

      L'auteur ne va t-il pas un peu vite dans sa déduction , le communautarisme comme il est évoqué ici appartient à un autre débat

    3. Oui, c’est ça. Une rencontre amoureuse réussie est une rencontre qui nous surprend, qui génère, sans qu’on s’en rende compte, des sentiments étonnants qui nous donnent envie de tenter quelque chose. Mais quand on s’inscrit on veut d’abord répondre à un besoin. On veut combler un manque, on n’est alors pas apte à se laisser surprendre. On cherche à combler ce besoin, on cherche un partenaire censé nous correspondre et d’emblée, on l’aborde en terme de critères et pas en terme de magie amoureuse. Quand on tombe là-dedans, on adopte forcément des comportements consuméristes.

      Perception personnelle et réductrice de l'auteur qui ne représente pas la réalité. Les utilisateurs doivent-ils justifier d'une attente particulière pour motiver leur inscription ?

    4. Mais le site de rencontres accélère les névroses. Quand on a des prédispositions, par exemple l’addiction, on a beau s’être mis des barrières dans la vraie vie, les barrières volent en éclat sur un site. Il y a tellement de monde, c’est tellement simple ! On rentre dans une logique de zapping relationnel qui va déclencher cette névrose. Comme la paranoïa, quand on a des penchants paranoïaques, on est tenté de fliquer et soupçonner une personne qu’on rencontre sur un site, pour vérifier si elle parle à d’autres personnes, alors qu’on devrait être un peu foufou et dans l’euphorie des débuts ! Dès le début, les non-dits façonnent la relation. Les sites sont un terrain privilégié pour les névrosés ou ceux qui vont le devenir.

      L'auteur se confère des qualités d'expert en évoquant une série d'hypothétiques troubles névrotiques liés à l'utilisation des sites de rencontres. Il vulgarise et banalise des pathologies sérieuses.

    5. Oui, c’est un problème de santé mental public qui caractérise les nouvelles relations amoureuses. Les sites génèrent des distorsions comportementales. Quand on arrive à s’en détacher, il faut une phase de réadaptation à la relation amoureuse.

      L'usage pathologique d'internet est réel, mais l'auteur invoque ici un problème de taille sans s'appuyer sur une source solide illustratrant la réalité des risques encourus par les utilisateurs des sites de rencontres.

    1. le phénomène s’est étendu aujourd’hui à de nombreuses professions et atteint son paroxysme chez les femmes actives qui gèrent en parallèle leur activité professionnelle et l’essentiel de la vie de famille.

      Voici le premier argument. En effet, il nous est dit que ce phénomène de dispersion atteint son paroxysme avec les femmes actives qui doivent gérer vie professionnelle et vie de famille, mais il serait bon d'approfondir d'avantage. Nous pouvons nous demander pourquoi cela se produit chez les femmes actives. Nous pouvons donc réfléchir si cela n'est pas dû à ce qu'on appelle la charge mentale, puisque ce sont majoritairement les femmes qui s'occupent du foyer et des enfants. A l'inverse, nous pouvons nous demander si la dispersion n'atteint pas son paroxysme parce qu'elles sont d'avantage multitâches que les hommes. En effet, elles sont capables de faire plusieurs tâches simultanément, et cela peut aussi engendrer une dose supplémentaire de travail. Ce phénomène de multitâche peut donc entraîner d'avantage de dispersion de leur part.

    1. Perhaps the greatest obstacle to redrawing the political map of the United States in this way is our bipartisan tradition of worshiping the founders. For many of the framers of the Constitution, nothing was more disturbing than the possibility that the Union would fracture into three or four smaller republics, or regional “sub-confederations.”

      I would hazard that US is far above optimal state size for wellbeing and wisdom.

    1. But here’s the situation: The information economy rains money on highly trained professionals — doctors, lawyers, corporate managers, engineers and so on.

      But why does it rain money on them? And who else does that?

    1. Figaro est sarcastique sur la censure

      Il y a du mouvement. Il s'assoit et se lève

      Il est dégoûté de lui-même et veut avoir une carrière honnête

      Il parle de malhonnêteté et de ses avantages

      Il parlait de ses différentes professions.

    1. Extraordinairement inventive, notre mémoire est aussi terriblement fragile. D’où les multiples « prothèses » physiques

      Et ainsi commence le plaidoyer de l'auteur et de son point de vue rhétorique, mettant bien en avant la puissance du numerique sur le biologique dans l'idée collective

    1. The great Harvard marketing professor Theodore Levitt used to tell his students, “People don’t want to buy a quarter-inch drill. They want a quarter-inch hole!” Every marketer we know agrees with Levitt’s insight. Yet these same people segment their markets by type of drill and by price point; they measure market share of drills, not holes; and they benchmark the features and functions of their drill, not their hole, against those of rivals. They then set to work offering more features and functions in the belief that these will translate into better pricing and market share. When marketers do this, they often solve the wrong problems, improving their products in ways that are irrelevant to their customers’ needs.

    1. Don't Underestimate a 1:1. Asynchronous communication (e.g., via text) is helpful and necessary. In some cases (e.g., to clarify misunderstandings) it can be much more effective to jump on a Zoom video call.
    1. What do you envision these people will do over the next two,three, and four years? How is it different from what they do now?

    2. wouldn’t it makesense to make that program widely available? Jobs are changing. We need best-in-breed practices here. What can we do to move that dispersed and diversegroup forward?”

    1. They walked a few blocks to a freshly painted frame house that was situated behind a neatly kept lawn. “Nice house,” he said.

    2. They walked six blocks, then six more, and still another six before they turned into a three-story frame building. The Ashidas, parents and three daughters, occupied four rooms on the second floor.

    3. Wonder Bread bakery way up on Nineteenth, where a nickel used to buy a bagful of day-old stuff. That was thirteen and a half blocks, all uphill. He knew the distance by heart because he'd walked it twice every day to go to grade school, which was a half-block beyond the bakery or fourteen blocks from home.

    8. Jackson Street started at the waterfront and stretched past the two train depots and up the hill all the way to the lake, where the houses were bigger and cleaner and had garages with late-model cars in them. For Ichiro, Jackson Street signified that section of the city immediately beyond the railroad tracks between Fifth and Twelfth Avenues. That was the section which used to be pretty much Japanese town. It was adjacent to Chinatown and most of the gambling and prostitution and drinking seemed to favor the area.

    1. This alliance of geeks and poets has generated exhilaration and also anxiety. The humanities, after all, deal with elusive questions of aesthetics, existence and meaning, the words that bring tears or the melody that raises goose bumps. Are these elements that can be measured? Advertisement Continue reading the main story “The digital humanities do fantastic things,” said the eminent Princeton historian Anthony Grafton. “I’m a believer in quantification. But I don’t believe quantification can do everything. So much of humanistic scholarship is about interpretation.”

      Not to argue with the New York Times and a Princeton Historian, but are the digital humanities really limited to quantification? I think that's perhaps a bit of a narrow minded opinion, or that I'm misinterpreting. For example, digital art or the study of digital artwork could be considered digital humanities, and I don't think that digital art has anything to do with quantification.

      I do understand the idea that quantification and data can't "deal with elusive questions of aesthetics, existence and meaning, the words that bring tears or the melody that raises goose bumps" (frankly an awful sentence, but that's besides the point) without human interpretation. I've seen some truly horrifying or very encouraging statistics before that can evoke these responses like a piece of literature, but the statistics alone do not embody those reactions.

    2. Mr. Bobley said the emerging field of digital humanities is probably best understood as an umbrella term covering a wide range of activities, from online preservation and digital mapping to data mining and the use of geographic information systems.

      Honestly the category of digital humanities seems like it could do with being split into two (or several) smaller fields of study. I'm sure it already is, the same way ecology and ornithology are both biology, but at least with biology it can be summarized as "the study of life" - with digital humanities I still struggle to come up with something like that - "the study of anything that could possibly be explored further/easier with anything similar to a computer?"
