Quand le sage montre la lune, l'imbécile regarde le doigt (Mars 2010)

Tout progrès dépend de l'homme déraisonnable (Europe 1, 28 Jan2010, 8H13)

@robinwauters: Hadn't heard this quote yet but it's not bad: "Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react."

"Si vous ajoutez deux lettres à Paris, c'est le paradis!"


Virginie Le Doyen

The present

And remember, time waits for no one.
Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is a mystery.
Today is a gift. That's why it's called the present.


Les rêves

"On croit que les rêves, c'est fait pour se réaliser. C'est ça le problème des rêves: c'est que c'est fait pour être rêvé."



Gift Idea

"J’ai un aimant sur mon frigo qui dit : “Oral sex is always a great last minute gift idea”."



What is a contract

"...in business terms a contract establishes expectations, responsibilites, outcomes and in some cases consequences. And when I say expectations, contracts are very explicit when it comes to who is responsible to whom and what they will get."



Give them the freedom to perform

"One of the most interesting case studies deals with a war game of the Pentagon which took an unexpected turn as the bad guy was able to inflict severe losses to US forces in the simulation simply by organizing his side as a loose system instead of trying to capture huge amounts of data to make decisions in the heat of the battle. In a way it reminded me of modern management where there is a drive in many companies to capture all sorts of data about a business in a futile attempt to control the future, whereas it is often far more productive to hire the right people and give them the freedom to perform."

Notre terre...

Unique planète du système solaire sur laquelle a été détectée la vie, notre Terre vient de fêter ses 4,5 milliards d’années… De 1 milliard d’humains en 1800, nous sommes passés à 6,5 milliards aujourd’hui et nous serons certainement entre 9 et 10 milliards à l’horizon 2050. Au total, sur 100 terriens, 61 vivent en Asie, 14 en Afrique, 11 en Europe, 9 en Amérique latine, 5 en Amérique du nord et moins d'une personne en Océanie. Autour du globe, quelques 200 pays se partagent inéquitablement les richesses. Parmi les 100 plus grandes entités économiques du monde, on dénombre 51 sociétés et seulement 49 pays. L'entreprise ?WalMart dépasse 161 pays, dont Israël, la Pologne et la Grèce alors que le chiffre d'affaires de General Motors est supérieur au PNB du Danemark. Tous les États sont entraînés dans la dynamique de la mondialisation. Sur le plan géopolitique, les États-Unis dominent le monde et exercent une écrasante suprématie dans les domaines politique, économique, militaire, technologique et culturel. Vous l'aurez compris, cette rubrique baptisée « Monde » est dédiée à l'actualité internationale



What is the meaning of life?

What we've come up with can be reduced to two fundamental concepts. One, people are not wearing enough hats. Two, Matter is energy. In the universe, there are many energy fields, which we cannot normally perceive. Some energies have a spiritual source, which act upon a person's soul. However, this soul does not exist automatically, as orthodox Christianity teaches, but has to be brought into existence by a process of guided self-observation. However, this is rarely achieved due to mankind's unique ability to be distracted from spiritual matters by everyday trivia.

Economics and happiness

Just do what's required

Problem talk creates problems - solution talk creates solutions" - Steve De Shazer

Effectiveness Vs Efficiency

"Efficiency is climbing the ladder as fast as you can. Effectiveness is making sure it's leaning against the right wall. Hah!"


Agile manifesto

"We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others do it. Through this work we have come to value:

  • Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
  • Working software over comprehensive documentation
  • Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
  • Responding to change over following a plan

That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more."


Become a Doer

"A day will never be anymore than what you make of it. Practice being a "doer"!"

MBA Elite

"Sometimes, you have to wonder whether Silicon Valley's MBA elite paid attention when their professors lectured about why it's a good idea to put customers first. Then again, maybe that was an elective course they skipped. "

iPod forever? Not in its current form


Great Managers

"The great managers are the ones who challenge the existing complacency and who are prepared to lead their teams forward towards a personal vision. They are the ones who recognise problems, seize opportunities, and create their own future. Ultimately, they are the ones who stop to think where they want to go and then have the shameless audacity to set out."



CAS is a new category of automated networked storage established to store large volumes of fixed content over extended periods of time. Unlike NAS that is designed to facilitate collaboration and file sharing or SAN that focuses on performance, CAS is specifically designed for fixed content which might have a significantly extended life-cycle compared to transactional data


Bill Gates

"For these last 31 years, I've had the best job in the world. I've worked with some of the brightest and most passionate people in the world. Together, we've built a great company whose products have empowered people around the world. "

Bill Gates Criticism

Copy/paste of an extract on a very severe point of view on Bill gates. Is this guy (Charles Cooper) jaleous ? Make your own opinion....

"Today's Microsoft is more of a plodder. With nearly 70,000 employees and some $50 billion in annual revenue, Microsoft no longer resembles the entrepreneurial dynamo Gates co-founded in 1975 with Paul Allen. So it is that the company is now working feverishly just to keep from falling farther behind Google while fighting off the potentially deadly threat posed by open-source software. "

"How much will Microsoft really miss Gates? Ballmer got a little misty when he took the podium to praise his old partner. But frankly, the company was not a fount of brilliant technologies during the six years Gates was Microsoft's chief software architect. It's still too soon to render history's verdict, but the record will undeniably be mixed."

Charles Cooper - Executive Editor CNET news.com

State of the ECM Industry

State of the ECM Industry: Moving from Why? To How?: The Maturing of ECM Users

The study found that over the past five years end users have moved from a passing and largely tactical interest in the management of documents to considering this a strategic priority.

The ECM industry has spent a great deal of time and marketing money over the past decade trying to convince end users about the importance of more effectively managing their documents and content. The good news is that the data in this year's survey reinforces the conclusions of previous Industry Watch surveys: "End users get it."
