Disparue dans vingt ans, la télé ? Les réponses de patrons de chaînes, producteurs, chercheurs... - L'actu Médias / Net - Télérama.fr

Oui, c’est une évidence que la consommation linéaire va être bouleversée. Que la consultation de programmes à la demande vient et viendra occuper toujours plus de temps de consommation. Cela signifie-t-il pour autant que les chaînes de télévision perdront leur savoir-faire dans la fabrication de programmes et dans leur relation à leur public ? La réponse dépendra de leur capacité à entreprendre. La télévision s'est déjà largement engagée dans la révolution Internet et il y a désormais, dans les chaînes, beaucoup de gens très compétents pour accompagner ce changement. Les producteurs, eux aussi, commencent à comprendre les immenses avantages de cette révolution dans la distribution des contenus. Il s’agit désormais de ne plus seulement réagir, mais de s’engager dans une vraie prise de risque créative. Le lien qu'établit Internet avec le public est une opportunité extraordinaire, notamment pour le service public, dont l'audience demande à participer toujours plus. L’expérience documentaire interactive Génération quoi ? (France Télévisions/Yami 2/Upian) le montre bien : plus de 235 000 personnes ont répondu à 23 000 000 questions, pour former un autoportrait de la jeunesse complexe et signifiant. Un miroir de la société, une récit multi-supports, un programme difficile à définir. Ça c’est de la télévision et ça ne risque pas de disparaître ! Maintenant, est-ce que Netflix sera toujours là dans vingt ans ? Perso, j'en doute. »

Tangram, A Mapping Library

(via)
Traditionally, maps have been expensive and time-consuming to make, but that’s changing fast. High-quality maps are easier to make every day thanks to OpenStreetMap and modern computer graphics capabilities, and we feel they can be pushed even further with ideas and techniques from 3D animation, video games, and other visual disciplines. To test this theory, the Mapzen graphics team has been working on a mapping library called Tangram.

Barbarians At The Password Gate | TechCrunch

We’re now using the Internet for a wide range of everyday activities, including online banking, stock trading, online shopping, bill paying, socializing, gaming, entertainment and online research. In the last few years there’s been a massive growth in the number of social networking sites such as Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter, Craigslist, Instagram, Tumblr. We share all kinds of personal details on these sites as well as music, pictures and videos, most of which we would certainly prefer to protect, safeguard and keep private. Unfortunately, all of these sites have been “cracked” by hackers who exposed passwords and other personal information from thousands of users. If you haven’t had your password hijacked, it’s really just a matter of time.

Photosurrealism | Learn V-Ray

In the first half of the 900 was born an artistic movement called Surrealism; the aim of surrealists was to paint absurd situations and concepts… in a realistic way. This ingenious combination created an alienating sensation in the observer. So I asked to myself: can I do something similar with rendering? Can I do the… Photosurrealism with V-Ray?

Edible Chocolate LEGOs by Akihiro Mizuuchi | Colossal

Illustrator and designer Akihiro Mizuuchi designed a modular system for creating edible chocolate LEGO bricks. Chocolate is first poured into precisely designed moulds that after cooling can be popped out and used as regular LEGOs. It’s hard to determine exactly how functional they are, it seems like he had success in building a number of different things, though I can only imagine how quickly they might melt in your hands, but I suppose that’s beside the point; this is two of the greatest things in the world fused together. If you google around there are numerous attempts at creating various forms of LEGO in chocolate or other food, but this appears to be the most detailed and well-designed of anything out there.
