    December 21st, 2010EuropasionariaWeb 2.0

    A l’occasion des 15 ans de sa version en ligne, Le Monde nous propose un zapping des journaux télévisés de 1995. Thème: INTERNET, cette nouvelle invention qui contient – ô miracle – tous les services du Minitel. Internet était déjà perçu comme quelque chose de potentiellement dangereux mais aussi comme une opportunité pour la démocratie. Comme quoi, les deux camps étaient déjà formés. Merci à @vlentz d’avoir partagé cette vidéo sur Twitter.

    Si vous ne comprenez pas l’espagnol, cette vidéo hilarante sur l’utilisation de Facebook par les personnes du troisième âge va vous le faire regretter. C’est ma super tatie qui l’a postée sur Facebook, immédiatement suivie de ma maman qui l’a partagée sur son mur. A 70 printemps, ma maman vient juste de rejoindre Facebook et montre déjà une aptitude exceptionnelle à utiliser toutes les options de partage de ce réseau. Quand je pense qu’il n’y a même pas un mois, ma maman me demandait de lui expliquer ce qu’est un blog… ça me donne le tournis !

    -Mise à jour- Ma maman a cliqué sur le bouton Facebook “j’aime” de cet article.

    Watch this hilarious video about the use of Facebook by the elderly. If you don’t understand Spanish, what’s below will definitively make you regret it. It was posted on Facebook by my fabulous aunt who joined Facebook just a couple of months ago, and immediately shared on her wall by my 70-year-old mum who just joined Facebook as well and who is, just like my aunt, showing a remarkable ability to use it. To put things in perspective: a month ago my mum asked me to explain to her what a blog was…

    This video is simply amazing. You HAVE to watch it. It explains how while financial incentives do not lead to higher performance, a sense of purpose does. Found on Facebook thanks to Bente Kalsnes

    The good thing about being of foreign descent is that when the Football World Cup comes up, you can support more than one team, which means you have more chances to win.

    I’m far from being a football fan. Some of the rules are still an utter mystery to me. But one thing is for sure, when it’s World Cup time and my mind is set up on one team, I turn into a real hooligan.

    So I felt like showing my support on Twitter by using a Twibbon. I started by adding the French flag to my avatar on Twitter. But looking at the poor result of France against Uruguay in its first game, I thought it would probably be a good idea to support more than one team. So I decided to add the Spanish flag to my avatar, as that’s where my father comes from. But that’s a little nationalistic so I thought I ought to add the flags of the countries I lived in and love i.e. the Netherlands and Belgium. However, as Belgium did not qualify, I put the Dutch flag only. Here’s the result:

    Come and do the same on : http://twibbon.com/worldcup !

    May the best team win! But if we could avoid Italy taking that position this time, it would be cool (very bad 2006 memory)
