Steve Jobs’s book is wonderful!
The photo of the inside cover was taken in 2004 when Steve is in his personal office at home.
The book sells for $ 25 in English and French versions will be available Wednesday (Oct. 26) except that it will sell $ 40 …
The first advice that Steve had been given by his adoptive father: “When you paint a fence, make sure to paint both sides, even the hidden, to show people that will pass before it that you are a perfectionist who give attention to detail … ”
This is the theory that he has used with its computers.
The book is a most read!

An excellent work that will inform anyone interested in understanding the world of social media and their possibilities.
A must read!

It was voting day Sunday in Tunisia and so far everything is going peacefully. The participation rate exceeded between 70% to 90%.
With the death of Gaddafi, the elections this Sunday in Tunisia are becoming increasingly important to monitor.
Tunisia is an Arab country in North Africa belonging to the Maghreb and the first democratic elections since the regime of dictator Ben Ali are held on 23 October.
Many observers worry, however, the violence that could result and many compared the situation to that of nearby countries such as Egypt and Libya of Qaddafi.
Recall December 17, 2010, Mohamed Bouazizi, peddler 26 years old, who put heimself on fire. This event became the first in a series of events that led to the collapse of the regimes in Tunisia, Egypt and a civil war in Libya as well as challenged other governments in place in much of the Arab world.
Many Canadians are temporarily up there as observers and it is in the case of Rafael Ferraro Primeau, a student at the University of Sherbrooke who wanted to go to Tunisia and participate in a training collaboration.
One can understand the political situation in Tunisia by reading the blog of Rafael Primeau.
