Slides for the Octo IT University conference
July 3rd, 2008 · No Comments
Here are the slides for the 2 sessions at the Octo IT University conference:
- Be Googley, a corporate culture for innovation, with Marc-Antoine Guarrigue
- Google APIs for the Enterprise, with Philippe Kernevez
The conference was excellent. French philosopher Michel Serres gave the best talk, the first day. He started with an ethymological exegesis of Robin Hood, the one who bears the magistrate robe in the lawless zone, around the themes of internet and law that Larry Lessig develops in Code. I was surprised he did not mention Lessig at all.
Then he explained how computers create an evolutionist transformation of our cognitive capacities: as our memory is outsourced to computers, this frees us to develop new totipotent capabilities for our mind, such as innovating. A thought provoking session, narrated by a master pedagog.
Here are the slides.
