Lift 2010 – impressions…

S’il y a un événement qui vaut la peine d’être fréquenté en région romande (c’est pas toujours ailleurs que ça se passe!), la conférence LIFT en fait partie… Mes deux derniers posts y étaient consacrés, d’ailleurs… en reprenant des thèmes qui m’ont tout particulièrement intéressé.

Mais LIFT n’est pas que ça… en l’occurrence, la réelle plus value à mes yeux, outre la qualité des orateurs et animateurs de workshops (à quelques exceptions près), réside dans l’opportunité de rencontrer des personnes passionnantes… au détour d’un workshop, à la pause, au repas de midi, en soirée… les conversations sont riches et enrichissantes à tout point de vue…

Bref, après une matinée consacrée à des thèmes aussi variés que la différence entre chinois et occidentaux dans leur manière d’appréhender le web (physiquement, par clavier interposé, ou culturellement) ou l’avenir de notre monde par / pour / par-delà la technologie, j’avais envie de partager quelques liens qui donne un aperçu (forcément partiel et complètement subjectif) de MA conférence LIFT :-)

AdaLovelaceDay – a great woman blogger

Given the opportunity to blog about a woman in technology whom I admire for AdaLovelaceDay, I will try to write a few lines about Stephanie Booth, a now quite renown blogger in Switzerland and beyond…

stephI first met the enthusiastic idealistic pink-haired Stephanie when I was working in a school near Morges in Switzerland. I was teaching English, History and Geography and, as a recruter for my high-school, I was looking for another English teacher. She sent her atypical CV and we decided to meet her with the headmaster. That was a great meeting with her passionate style of answering questions :-). Then, she taught teenagers for two years and that went quite all right… even if some of her students gave her a hard time…

She was the first to introduce a real reflection about the use of blogs in French class in a time when students were starting blogging and teachers didn’t even know what she was talking about… Eventually, she did convinced some of us teachers to have a look at the new media phenomenon… and I started blogging in Feb. 2008 after having attended a workshop on blogs given by Stephanie at Lift !

Now, she’s one of the few professional bloggers in French-speaking Switzerland and is also famous in the blogosphere with her blog – climbtothestars.org (since 1999!).
