Les bons liens de la veille ( 17 septembre au 26 septembre )

Voici quelques articles dont la pertinence/l’intérêt m’ont marqué au cours des derniers jours. Faites-en bon usage ! 🙂

  • 70 Percent of Journalists Use Social Networks to Assist Reporting (via @palpitt ) – According to a new survey from Middleberg Communications and the Society for New Communications Research (SNCR), as reported in PRWeek , 70 percent of journalists said they use social networks to assist in reporting (compared to 41 percent last year). This is a huge spike in one year, though it shouldn’t surprise any of us with all the lists of journalists using Twitter and other social networks.
  • Les jeunes Québécois passent 36 heures par semaine sur le web | via @Emergent007 – Internet occupe de plus en plus de temps dans la vie des jeunes Québécois. Selon une nouvelle étude, les 21-24 ans passeraient en moyenne… 36 heures par semaine devant leur écran, soit l'équivalent d'une semaine de travail à temps plein.
  • Rossel et De Persgroep dénigrent les nouveaux médias (News Up ! ) – Le bilan de cette conférence est navrant. On sent bien sûr les deux interlocuteurs très motivés à défendre leur métier mais on a l’intime conviction qu’ils se trompent de discours face à l’apparition des nouveaux médias. Ils ne semblent pas mesurer suffisamment les enjeux du secteur. Ils ne semblent avoir aucune vision d’exploration pour s’y adapter. Sous des airs suffisants, ils dénigrent la concurrence et la profession. Ils consolident leurs marques et se diversifient sans s’interroger sur les conséquences qu’auront peut-être les nouveaux médias sur leur business. Ils ne sont apparemment pas du tout sensibilisés à l’évolution des comportements des consommateurs face à l’information.
  • Internet phone companies call on Twitter and Facebook (via @guardiantech ) – From tomorrow, Twitter users will be able to make direct phone calls to each other for the first time. Well, at least if they live in the US. But Jajah.com, an internet telephony company, that allows you to make voice over IP calls using your landline or cell phone, might want to bring the service to the UK as fast as it can. Twitter is not only at its most successful in Europe here, but even more popular more than in the US.
  • Vers la fin du support physique des jeux vidéo ? – Le salon du jeu vidéo s’est tenu à Paris ce week-end. Le secteur fait face à de nouveaux défis, notamment celui de la dématérialisation. Ainsi, les jeux se passent petit à petit de support physique. Aux côtés des acteurs historiques (Microsoft, Nintendo, Sony), les constructeurs de mobiles ont eux aussi flairé la bonne affaire, de l’App Store d’Apple à NGage dans la galaxie Ovi de Noki
  • Adobe ne veut pas que le verbe "Photoshoper" s’impose comme équivalent de "manipuler une photo" (via @NiemanLab ) – The folks at Adobe Systems Inc. remind us (NDLR: New York Times Editor) that “Photoshop” is a registered trademark referring to Adobe’s “digital imaging software products and related services.” It is not, they note, a generic term, and should not be used as a verb to describe the general process of digitally manipulating photographs.
  • TV Goes Social: Verizon FiOS Generating "Billions" of Tweets (via @Raydacteur ) – Earlier this summer, the Verizon FiOS, the Internet/television/phone service, integrated Facebook and Twitter into its platform, allowing subscribers to initiate Twitter alongside their favorite shows. Here's the story by CNET's Maggie Reardon.

    These days, "billions" of Tweets are being generated monthly, according to Joe Ambeault, Director of Consumer Product Development, in this inteview with Beet.TV

  • « La réputation et l’attention vont devenir de nouvelles formes de rémunération » (via @jeanyves ) – « L’argent n’est qu’un vecteur de valeur parmi d’autres. Aujourd’hui, la réputation ou l’attention sont de nouvelles formes de devises que vous pouvez valoriser différemment, afin de ‘monnaitiser’ une activité économique« .
  • Next: An Internet Revolution in Higher Education – BusinessWeek – Web technology is poised to shake universities, the way it rocked newspapers and the music industry—with convenient, cheaper alternatives
  • Journalism has improved in the internet age, say media professionals – For the European Digital Journalism Survey 2009, 350 European journalists were asked what impact the internet had on journalism – and the outcome is surprising. Even though it appears whining is part of everyday journalism work these days – and some would say it was ever thus – journalists still love their job. They struggle hard within a changing industry, but still believe in the quality of the European press. To sum it up, the end of journalism seems to be far away.

Voici quelques articles dont la pertinence/l’intérêt m’ont marqué au cours des derniers jours. Faites-en bon usage ! 🙂

  • Personal brands vs. corporate brands: Who are the real superstars? (via @owyang ) – It’s always interesting to see when superstars emerge out of existing brands. And it is fascinating to watch when they choose to leave for something new.
  • TableSurfing: You’ll never eat alone again … (via @TheAfter) – Tablesurfing is a bit like Couchsurfing, but then with tables…
  • Kazaa founder Kevin Bermeister turns music piracy fighter – A few short years ago, Kevin Bermeister was the music industry’s public enemy number one, pursued by lawyers and private investigators over his file sharing business Kazaa. Now Mr Bermeister, who paid out a reported $150 million in a 2005 legal settlement with the majors, has created a new weapon against music piracy that could make him the industry’s new best friend.Called Copyrouter, it is technology that detects when a user is trying to download a copyright-infringing version of a song from a peer-to-peer file sharing network, and replaces it with a legitimate – paid – version. The user is asked before the download if they agree to pay for the copyright-protected version through their next monthly ISP bill.
  • 10 Really Tangible Ways To Measure Social Media Success | Microgeist (via @jeanlucr ) – This isn’t a number some may say not even tangible, but you won’t get anywhere unless you’ve actually defined some processes that can be measured. A lot of people are just going on these sites, putting up a profile and waiting for something to happen. Having an outline and plan of action is a sign of success, it shows that you have at least a basic understanding of social media and some of its components. This is your first benchmark. It is also important to realize that these plans are not static and require constant appraisal for effectiveness.
  • Twitter Launches a Geolocation API (via @jeffjarvis) – We’re gearing up to launch a new feature which makes Twitter truly location-aware. A new API will allow developers to add latitude and longitude to any tweet. Folks will need to activate this new feature by choice because it will be off by default and the exact location data won’t be stored for an extended period of time. However, if people do opt-in to sharing location on a tweet-by-tweet basis, compelling context will be added to each burst of information.
  • PayPal enters agreement with mobile credit card transaction company – Transaction Wireless, a mobile commerce payment and marketing company, has announced an agreement with PayPal™ to power the company’s wCharge Credit Card Terminal by Transaction Wireless™, allowing small merchants to accept credit card payments virtually anywhere, securely and conveniently using only a mobile phone and a PayPal account.
  • At its peak, the conversation about Michael Jackson’s death proceeded at a rate of 78 tweets/second (via @Digidave) – Detecting Sadness in 140 Characters: Sentiment Analysis and Mourning Michael Jackson on TwitterUsers tweeting about Jackson’s death tend to use far more words associated with negative emotions than are found in ‘everyday’ tweets.
    Roughly 3/4 of tweets about Jackson’s death that use the word “sad” actually express sadness, suggesting that sentiment analysis based on word usage is fairly accurate.
    That said, there is extensive disagreement between human coders about the emotional content of tweets, even for emotions that we might expect would be clear (like sadness).
    Tweets expressing personal, emotional sadness about the Jackson’s death showed strong agreement among coders while commentary on the auxiliary social effects of Jackson’s death showed strong disagreement.
    We argue that this pattern in the “understandability” of certain types of communication across Twitter is due to the way the platform structures the expression of its users.
  • Digital music sales will nearly equal CD sales by the end of 2010. (PC Magazine) – CD purchases made up 65 percent of all music sold in the first half of 2009, while paid digital downloads came in at 35 percent.
