Laisser tourner ma tête [fr]

Thu, 20 Apr 2017 19:02:08 +0000

[fr] Ces derniers mois, j’ai réalisé que… (J’ai toujours l’impression que c’est ces derniers mois. Mais ça vient sournoisement. Ça doit mettre des années. Bref.) J’ai besoin de pouvoir laisser ma tête tourner à vide. Au ralenti. Au point mort. En roues libres. Être constamment soit en train de lire, de discuter, ou d’écouter des … Continue reading "Laisser tourner ma tête [fr]"



Rendre visibles ses articles de blog, c’est galère [fr]

Thu, 20 Apr 2017 11:16:19 +0000

[en] Yep, making your blog articles visible sucks -- so does making anything visible. [fr] Bon, pis les blogs? “Galère pour rendre visibles ses articles de blog,” me dit-elle. Je crois que c’est comme pour tout. On est vraiment sur-sollicités. Tout le monde et toutes les marques sont sur Facebook. C’est la surenchère du “comment … Continue reading "Rendre visibles ses articles de blog, c’est galère [fr]"



Quiet Me Time [en]

Sun, 26 Mar 2017 17:20:31 +0000

[en] “But… Stephanie, you’re not allowed to do that to yourself!” She said. In this case, “that” was a day that started at 9am and finished at 10pm, pretty much back-to-back meetings and appointments. There was also the podcast on “addictive technology“, and this question that comes to my mind a dozen times a day … Continue reading "Quiet Me Time [en]"



Addictive Tech [en]

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 19:35:07 +0000

[en] This week-end I was listening to a Fresh Air interview of the author of Irresistible, on addictive technology. I don’t like the idea of considering tech overuse as an addiction. But if we leave words like that one aside, I find myself in agreement with Adam Alter. Here’s my main take-away, the one that … Continue reading "Addictive Tech [en]"



Russian Passenger [fr]

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 18:58:47 +0000

[fr] Tout à l’heure, j’ai écouté l’épisode “The Russian Passenger” du podcast Reply All. Alex arrive avec une question: il a d’un coup commencé à recevoir des alertes Uber pour des trajets à Moscou, au milieu de la nuit. Il voit que les trajets sont facturés à sa carte de crédit. Il tente de se … Continue reading "Russian Passenger [fr]"



More Friction [en]

Sun, 19 Mar 2017 19:46:09 +0000

[en] I think that now that we are all experiencing that we can be “public” (something we couldn’t 20 years ago) we’re going to be crawling back into more private spaces, understanding that the advantages we can see to “reaching more people” or “micro-fame” come with a load of drawbacks. But we need time in … Continue reading "More Friction [en]"



Incident malentendant [fr]

Wed, 15 Mar 2017 13:22:56 +0000

[fr] La surdité est la plupart du temps invisible (“malentendance” serait plus correct mais moche). On voit les lunettes, mais pas les appareils auditifs. Tout à l’heure au centre de biométrie et des documents d’identité, le gentil fonctionnaire m’envoie dans la cabine photo-empreintes, puis me donne des instructions depuis derrière son guichet. Je ne le … Continue reading "Incident malentendant [fr]"



Mastercard Visa [en]

Wed, 15 Mar 2017 11:30:39 +0000

[en] Pro tip: if you’re booking flights online, make sure using your Mastercard doesn’t cost you an extra 50 for your flight ticket price. It happened to me earlier this morning as I was booking a flight. I went on Kayak, found a flight I liked, clicked the link that sent me over to eDreams to book … Continue reading "Mastercard Visa [en]"



Ponzi Coaching [en]

Tue, 14 Mar 2017 15:22:39 +0000

[en] Sometimes I get the nagging feeling that everybody (or almost) who used to be a fellow freelance consultant has now drifted into coaching. What is going on here? There seems to be a Ponzi-like dynamic going on, as with all these people giving online courses about how to earn money through your online business. … Continue reading "Ponzi Coaching [en]"



Choice [en]

Sun, 12 Mar 2017 12:43:08 +0000

[en] Earlier today, I was listening to Malcolm Gladwell on the TED Radio Hour podcast. He was talking about choice architecture. In short, how the way we frame the available choices influences decisions (think: opt-in or opt-out, for organ donors for example). James Clear has made me think about this a lot, under the title … Continue reading "Choice [en]"
