A week without a watch!

Let's stop running! For the holidays this week, let's give ourselves a real break from our timed lives, refusing to plan everything and learning to enjoy the present moment. How? 'Or' What ? By abandoning our watch, for a few hours not counted or a few days of new freedom.

After the hour, it's no longer the hour. For the market, the beach, the exhibition and the fireworks… No respite, tic-tac, tic-tac, it is our watch, again, which often gives rhythm to our holidays. Because we want to make the most of it. Because we especially do not want to lose a crumb. Even if it means missing o...

Why what is seen of our houses in video conferences matters

The outbreak of the Covid-19 crisis unleashed a series of unprecedented actions in the course of our lives and daily actions. One of them was home confinement, which lasted for almost 100 days, and which has continued through successive curfews and various restrictions on mobility. These situations have profoundly affected our way of relating professionally, accelerating processes such as digitization and teleworking, and have turned part of our private and domestic spaces into improvised meeting rooms, offices and workstations. New and diverse digital tools (such as Zoom, Meet, Jitsi, Teams ...) have allowed us to connect with other people to hold meetings or encounters virtually. All this caused videoconferences to multiply exponentially, and in them thousands of people connected f...
