Classic Music is different.

Why?
Because it can't be seized.
It's un-formatted.
Because fans of classic music don't like Symphony No 7 of Beethoven. They like the No7 in A Major played by the orchestra X the 2nd of may 2010.
It's a mix of sounds, rhythm, intensity, personal touches. Even sometimes the low quality of some songs make them unique and powerful.

When my hard drive burnt. I found through torrents all of my pop music and rock albums within days except my classic music folder. Indeed, it was composed of songs grabbed in YouTube and among hundreds of albums of different players, different orchestras, some were live, some studio, I wasn't able to found them again.

By extension, electronic music is quite similar.
Its DNA is not 3 min formatted songs. It's mixes and mixes are live, they are hardly sizable.

By extension, live performance is quite similar.
Live concerts are not enough recorded. Artists usually produce 1 live album every three year. They should record all of their concerts to give fans the possibility to get the the version of the song of, let's say : "If I were a boy" sang in July 2011 in the Stade de France.
Take Adam Cohen, I discovered him live and loved it. But I don't like so much its studio albums. He's a live man. He should sold it.
Other solution, : produce zero live albums, and limit live experience to people who attend the concerts.
Isn't is so Renaissance style? :)

La finance islamique, modèle de bon sens à suivre ?

tdi

Je vous invite à lire un petit article court et clair de lexpansion.com sur la finance islamique intitulé "La finance islamique, comment ça marche".

Si sur d'autres plans la charia (loi islamique) ne m'enthousiasme pas, appliquée à la finance, elle me paraît très saine.
A se demander si ce ne serait pas salvateur d'appliquer ses principes à toute la finance mondiale, car au delà de toute considérations religieuses, ceux-ci me semblent empreints de bon sens.

Je vous copie de l'article les bases de la finance islamique ci-dessous, et vous invite à lire dans l'article la description des différents produits islamiques présentés (Mourabaha, Ijara,Moucharaka, Sukuks, c'est quand même plus sympa que Livret A, LEP ou PEL ??? :p ) :

"La finance islamique fonctionne notamment dans le respect de trois grands principes de la charia : - la proscription des intérêts (riba), apparentés à de l'usure,
- le partage des risques et des profits entre prêteur …

Tipadvisor: from pretty useless rating to useful tagging and filtering

What is Tripadvisor?
A website where you put 3, 4, 5 stars to a place and write a little story.
Tripadvisor is cool to rate overall popularity of places but it's crap for all the rest.
Why?
Because they miss tags, the miss filters!!! They miss structured data. They focused on unstructured data with millions of stories. Unfortunately, transforming unstructured data into structured inputs is a headache.

You want the top 5 Italian restaurants in Paris? You got it in Tripadvisor and most of the time, it's good recommandations. Top restaurants deserve it.

For all the rest, look...

Want the top 5 Italian restaurants in the Paris's 15th district? Well, without "district" tag, no way.
Want the top 5 Italian restaurants in Paris with Veggie option? Well, you can type Ctrl F to find the word veggie in comments... except that comments are cropped... never mind, ok no way. The tag "veggie" is missing.
Want the top 5 Italian restaurants in Paris with a terrace? Well…
