Habitele international conference Paris 30-31 May

On 30-31May at Sciences Po, we organize the international conference about habitele with all the teams that produced the data for the survey. Yes, the survey on the field is over, finally! We've got a huge database and the first dataprocessing is taking place thanks to  the cooperation of François Weber from ENSAI junior entreprise  ( a famous statistics School). People from Korea, India, Nigeria, Tunisia, Brazil, USA, UK and France will meet and exchange their results and experiences, tell us more about their case studies and test the hypotheses of the ANR project habitele.
This conference is sponsored by the "Pole de Compétitivité" Cap Digital.
Here are the pictures of participants at the entrance of the médialab when Bruno Latour came and visited us. We had fun, international friendship, good papers on case studies, and plenty of insights about how to go on with such an amount of data all of us collected. Stay tuned!

How the cell phone encapsulates more and more on line activity

The Pew Internet And American Life Project always delivers well documented surveys and this one should not be missed. The question is what activity and especially online activity could escape being processed through a cell phone? Ok, I agree, we're not using Catia on our phones, these  are professional tools that require large screens and a huge computing power. But all our everyday online activity will be accessible with our cell phones creating this habitat we call habitele.
