Sometimes a good intention is not appreciated and turns negative …
Arguably this is the case of the photo exhibition “Portraits d’influence” by photographer Marie-Claude Hamel and installed at Place Ville Marie (Montreal). Hamel shot pictures of 35 people of influence in Quebec. Tuesday noon while Bernard Bujold (LeStudio1.com) passed before the exhibition, he heard people murmur against those people of influence whose among them is Jean Charest …
Bernard even said that he had to almost use force against the person who accompanied him for lunch (an employee locked out of the Journal de Montreal) when the person saw the photo of Pierre Karl Peladeau. The employee wanted to tear in pieces the photo of the president of Quebecor!
“Fortunately, I calmed him down and he accepted not to do it.” says, laughing Bernard Bujold

The thought of the day:” What would we do if Google did not exist?”

I read the book written in French by Michelle Blanc, an expert on social media in Quebec and Nadia Seraiocco a web communicator and well known in the public relations.
The book: “Les Médias sociaux 101” is a comprehensive book which traces a accurate picture of the current level of Internet social media. (Facebook, Flickr, Google, Myspace, etc.).
The book is not for experts but rather to the general public and especially business leaders who want to better understand this area of the Internet. The preface is signed by Bruno Guglielminetti formerly from Radio-Canada and now in the private sector in a public relations firm.
One wish: the duo White – Seraiocco should write a volume 2 of their vision of the future Internet …

The expert and technology journalist and Internet Walt Mossberg of The Wall Street Journal is returning from a vacation trip to Paris where he had decided to stay without his laptop for 10 days.
He brought with him an iPad, a smart phone (Smart Phone) and a digital camera.
His conclusion: “It is possible to survive without a computer but this mode of survival is not valid for all …” – Walt Mossberg
