Boring real life vs amazing virtual realities

With our phones we're connected to thousand of people, we can order stuff, get super interesting content, see what's happening everywhere, create companies, fight for causes, help people, share love and get love.

Tomorrow, virtual reality will let us enter in fantastic parallel dimensions.

In comparison, our real life will be so boring.

That's why people check their phone constantly, even with friends or significant ones.
They're just bored. They're just attracted by more exciting content, more impressive dimensions.

The world waits for you - Facebook friends, Twitter followers, Whatsapp groups, Tinder dates, Snapchat friends, Pokemon Go pokemons and hunters- why losing time chatting about ordinary stuff with a handful of friends in an average café.

Why doing one thing in real life when you can at the same time do tons of things at the same time online, chatting with 10 persons at a time, playing and maybe working a bit too.

Why going out to do somewhat cool things while so many amazing things happen online and soon in VR (virtual reality) environments.
You can see a local music band walking 10 minutes or see superstars with a VR helmet. What will you choose?
Why watching a conference of local experts in your neighbourhood when TedTalks with super amazing speakers are free?
Note that Pokemon adds another flavor: it obliges people to go out and move to do stuff on their mobile.

Virtual realities will soon challenge reality.
A lot of people will surely prefer to be in the Matrixes than being in their reality.
Moreover, to have a cool VR you need a software. To have a cool reality, you need money, a lot.

Will reality by a luxury thing for rich people only while poor people escape in VRs?

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…
