We all benefit from sharing knowledge” I like to say. That’s why I initially started this blog, that’s why I keep it alive and blog on other platforms too. That’s also why I chose to share panel data a while ago, which I hope has been used by people to better understand motivations and willingness to engage in online co-creation.

Now I would like to offer 3 more opportunities to benefit from data I’ve gathered over the years – and that I’d hate to see sit idle on my hard drive: the Creatives In The Crowd data (map), the Crowdsourcing Timeline data (timelines), and the “eYeka Research Survey 2014” data (survey). You may use it for academic, market or trend research… truth is that I won’t be able to analyze it all. So let’s discuss! Read more…

Les remerciements après la soutenance, un des moments les plus importants!

Les remerciements après la soutenance!

Voici un long message de remerciement pour beaucoup de personnes! C’est un extrait de mon introduction de thèse, dans laquelle je voudrais exprimer ma gratitude à tous ceux qui ont nourri le travail des 4 dernières années. Lorsqu’on s’engage dans un travail de thèse, on s’engage dans une longue aventure constituée de multiples phases successives. Je ne parle pas uniquement des phases « classiques » du travail de recherche […].

Ces phases m’avaient été enseignées à l’ESSCA Ecole de Management, au sein de laquelle j’ai effectué un mémoire de recherche, grâce à des enseignements méthodologiques très précis. Je voudrais donc remercier mes professeurs à l’ESSCA Ecole de Management pour m’avoir transmis cette curiosité intellectuelle et ces méthodes pour mener à bout un travail de thèse. Je tiens particulièrement à remercier le Professeur Jean-François Lemoine, qui a suivi mon mémoire de fin d’études et m’a ouvert les portes de la Sorbonne en m’encourageant à mener un travail de recherche plus approfondi, plus rigoureux et bien plus engageant que celui de mémoire.

The year 2015 is over, and after WordPress sent me my 2015 annual blogging report, I start by thanking the readers of this blog, who mainly arrived here through Facebook, eYeka’s blog and Twitter. The 64,000 viewers of the blog came from 179 countries in 2015, most of them from France (about 20,000) and the United States (about 15,000). But enough of the numbers, just a warm and heartfelt THANK YOU for your interest!

In this December recap, I share some of my favorite links that inspired, interested or entertained me – and maybe you’ll like them too? Below are some CMO interviews, articles about (social) media, cycling or memorabilia, and more stuff that I enjoyed looking at in December.

Elon Musk at center stage (Richelieu amphitheatre), taking questions from the audience

Yesterday, Elon Musk came to the Sorbonne, giving a talk about climate change and the importance to act in favor of the environment. One of the Sorbonne’s constituting universities invited him to present and discuss with students, on the same stage where Morgan Freeman, who plays Professor Samuel Norman, spoke in Lucy (the movie). “[COP21] is a crucial event aiming to achieve a legally binding and universal agreement on climate, [and] in parallel to the official negotiations, the civil society is getting ready to demonstrate its mobilization and send a message to the decision makers,” the official invitation said. “In this context, Elon Musk accepted [to] share his vision in front of the students. He will discuss how we can all take meaningful action towards changing the future.Read more…

My Favorites in November: Advertising in 60 Seconds, Problematic Crowd Work & The Parisian Lifestyle

30 November 2015

History of Advertising Timeline

This was a special month here in Paris, especially the second half, with the terrorist attacks and the start of the COP21 climate conference shrouding the city in a very particular atmosphere. Much more security, armed forces on almost every street corner, helicopters, heads of state… it’s not the usual Parisian life. But nevertheless, the earth keeps spinning, people will not stop going into bars and cafés, and I won’t stop sharing my favorite inspirations neither. Here are some tweets about entrepreneurship, marketing, creativity, crowd labor and Paris (of course). Make sure to look at the short video about Google’s “Alive Memory” project in Russia.
