I am actually close to do it, it's in the air, I need an MP3 player, not for music, rather for Podcast ! Difficult choice as I've never been considering seriously getting one of those as I didn't ever know when I would have time to listen to music except on my car when driving to my office....which is more than dangereous ....
But now, podcast is pushing me strongly on the way to the IT store, knowing that every week I found some new channels and shows I'd love to listen to more frequently ... I found a guide on about.com that I found quite well done. Might be helpfull for some of you also...
I am dreaming about a trip in Quebec, hope I'll be able to make it soon... Thanks to Max, we can have great pictures from this fantastic country. When I am visiting his blog, I often have the feeling to smell the snow.... or to see from my own eyes as if I was there...
Thanks to Constantin leaving a comment on one of my post, I discovered Blogcount, which seems to be one of the place to go to find studies and stats on the blogosphere:
Blogcount asks: How big is the blogosphere? What is its shape, color, true nature? Blogcount catalogs efforts to answer these questions. We collect and organize the best reports and analyses on this subject.
One again... Where will Google stop...? "Google Maps is an online service that allows users in the U.S. to find location information, navigate through maps, and get directions quickly and easily"
What I find great is that you can just simply type in a service you're looking for (ex. "flowers" for the Saint Valentin day...) and you will be able to see the different locations on the map.... Hope we'll get it soon for Europe !
I've been very surprised to see that MSN was still the first blogging solution blogs farm used in the world... I've never even dare imagining this... The top 100 list is available at Blogsentinel, below is the top 5:
Lors de la dernière soirée du CEO bloggers' Club, j'ai eu l'occasion de passer du temps avec deux auteurs, Eric Seulliet et Benoit Desavoye. Eric est co-auteur de "Fabriquer le Futur", un livre sur l'innovation, plus précisément l'imaginaire au service de l'innovation. Un extrait de la 4è de couverture:
"Comment inventer de nouveaux produits et services que les consommateurs adopteront durablement ? La proposition que font ici les auteurs est d’enrichir les méthodes traditionnelles de recherche par la notion d’imaginaire. En plaçant ainsi le rêve et l’imagination au cœur de sa stratégie, l’innovation sort du seul laboratoire de R&D. "
Le sommaire peut-être téléchargé ici, et voici la première de couverture:
Benoit Desavoye publie lui un ouvrage sur les blogs que j'avais annoncé déjà dans une note précédente, mais à l'époque, pas de première de couv. disponible, donc rattrapons nous:
