BIO
Born 1962, he studied at the "Ecole Nationale Superior des Beaux Arts of Paris". During this period, he produced several monumental works and obtained numerous prizes. Following his graduation, yearning to travel, he decides with the aid of an American scholarship to go to live in the United States. He attends post graduate studies at Hunter College (New York).

It is in this context that his work feeds on and personalizes itself. He turns towards the domain of multi-media installations, of social and scenographic nature. Sensitive to the diversity of the situations and preoccupied with the different groups he meets, he heads towards the achievement of works in their own environment.

Hello,
pourinfos is please to present a new column to you:

Apostils :

“Small annotations designed to remember things we have seen”.

The word apostil comes from the Latin “post illa”, “after those things”
and is generally written in the left margin, whether it is a legal
document or the note that we added today at the bottom of a page.

The purpose of this column is to publish an original text on a
bi-monthly basis.
pourinfos.org wishes to share periodically contemporary thoughts in a
non-synchronized time/news (headlines) relationship with no further
intention to become a magazine or a review.
The articles that you will read in this column will not only debate
matters about visual arts, but also about topics related to society,
politics, techniques, etc…

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
[apostils] [apostils] [apostils] [apostils] [apostils] [apostils] [apostils]
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

The Net: towards a semantics [1] and social cartography.

Ancient orators from the Antiquity used to associate various
architectural elements belonging to a building or a city with the
salient points of their discourse. When addressing an audience, they
mentally traveled through their imaginary journey to recall the many
stages of their argumentation: this staircase reminding them of a very
explicit metaphor, that corbelled construction reminding them of an
opponent’s critique, and so on… The very Western concept of “mental
space” developed from “the Art of memory” gained many mystical and
magical connotations all along the Middle Ages and the Renaissance,
finally to reach many centuries later, the concept of cyberspace, the
Internet [2].

The Net, just like the old memory palaces, is an abstract space where
semantic elements, ideas, concepts and texts can be found. However,
unlike ancient structures, semantic objects are not arbitrarily
distributed according to an urban or an external architectural diagram
that would be elaborated separately. Here, the discourse itself
organizes the space, creates landscapes and cathedrals, and designs
curves for its streets. There is more to it: the memory palace was a
desert space kept for the lonely orator’s meditation. This very space is
filled with crowds that are moving in it, following paths that have been
imposed on them by the language itself. Therefore, Net’s new geography
is simultaneously describing a social landscape and a semantic universe.

The Web is the mirror of the Net.

The Web gets most attention from new comers in this mental space.
However, the Web is not really the Net. It is only a visible face.
The Web is the Net’s distorting mirror. The Net is dynamic, and is
formed by a flux of ideas or individuals; the Web is static, and is
constituted by sites, and more or less permanent pages. The Net is “peer
to peer” [3]], bidirectional. Everybody participates and interacts. The
Web is “client/server”: a few large suppliers spread information to
small addressees who are, in fact, a passive audience that only get
occasionally connected: most of us.
However, the Web already has a complex geography in spite of all these
simplifications. One does refer to it as the domain of “absolute
transparency”, of “real time”… In fact, a Web page is only accessible to
those having the necessary information to reach it; whether it is a
hyperlink to it, obtained through a page pointing to it, or the keywords
group enabling it to show in Google - and in the first three-reference
pages-. Furthermore, studies indicate that search engines such as Google
only cover about 69\% of the easy-reach pages of the Web [4].

As a result, for serious cyber surfers, “surfing on the Web” looks
rather like a Dungeons and Dragons game. Their real challenge is to get
the “keys” that will enable them to reach the finest and more precise
pages. A serious knowledge of the field of studies is required to
achieve that level.

The social network.

Already noticeable on the Web, this escalation turns out to be an even
more exact metaphor when the most discreet aspect of the Net is
approached, the virtual communities where the network’s true reality can
be found. In order to get there, one needs to identify them: the easiest
to find are logged in catalogues such as usenet alt.groups* or
yahoogroups diffusion lists. One then needs to be accepted by the group.
One might be rejected only on the basis of the sole indifference of the
other members, in case of a lack of serious moderators. The group
acceptance depends both on the level of knowledge of the subject matter
and often on the group’s specific etiquette.

At last, there are some discussion lists that are only accessible
through other communities acting as breeding grounds. Those are
exclusively available through invitations. Again, the digital landscape
shows us bumps and holes, flat open countries for all and high tops for
the most determined.

La blogosphere.

The “blogosphere” is a Web subset, which gathers all the “blogs” [5] and
has got an even more Escherian type of geography. It actually is a
hybrid between an ensemble of Web sites and a discussion group similar
to usenet or mailing lists. A primary post sent on a blog will end up
reproduced on many pages and moreover, commented in many various places,
via RSS Feed [6] and diverse connections linking bloggers. It is hard
for readers to follow feedback from material without knowing precisely
what “community” is involved in a precise section of the blogosphere,
the group of actors who would be interested in the same topic. There
are, of course, some useful tools such as search engines, which can log
the occurence of a specific “post”. Blogpulse [7] is a service that
intends to trace the evolution of a discussion through various sites.
Just as traditional search engines, these systems work better for whose
who know what to look for and how to look for it.

The smallest world.

In fact, the notion of “small worlds”, part of the Graph Theory [8]
itself produces the architecture relevant to the digital universe,
blueprint for the “memory palace”.
This theory discloses the Net infrastructure as a whole, since it works
entirely, including the Web, according to its principles.
This mathematical theory, elaborated by Duncan Watts and Steve Strogatz
[9],explores the existence of a particular category of networks, called
“small worlds”. Closest nodes are strongly connected together and
produce “sets” or “clusters”, relatively isolated from each others,
except that one or two connections come out from every cluster [10],
liking it to external nodes.
As surprising as it may seem, the existence of a very small number of
long distance relationships is enough to easily cross the global
network. The famous “six degrees” law states that there are more or less
six degrees distance between two inhabitants on our planet, whoever they
are. In other words, one knows somebody who knows somebody, etc… who
goes around with a randomly targeted person. It is true in the real
world, but even more so in cyberspace where these six degrees can be
crossed in a snap. Thus, there would be an average of four degrees
distance between two mail servers located anywhere in the world. In
other words, an Email wouldn’t need more than four stages to go from one
point to another. In order to go via hyperlinks from one Web page to any
other page, the maximum gap, the Web diameter, as they call it, would be
around 19. This is a lot, but relatively not, when thinking about the
number of existing pages.
The global blogosphere is more recent and is not yet entirely connected.
One cannot go for sure from one blog to another following links that
join them together. Most of them are simply disconnected from their
neighbors. But some parts of the blogosphere, such as “livejournal”, a
blogger community that gathers together almost 7 millions blogs, would
show around 6 degrees distance between its members, 10 degrees at most [11].

New wealth, new peaks.

According to Mark Buchanan, Nexus’ author [12], there would be two types
of “small worlds networks”. The first ones, described by Duncan Watts,
are made of clusters with randomly added long-distance links. As
Buchanan remarks, the characteristics of these very egalitarian small
worlds are pure mathematic constructions: they do not have a history or
a development; this is not the case for the Web and the Net. These are
products of the real world and they have a somehow different structure:
main connections are provided by “big connectors”, that hold
simultaneously a much larger number of connections than the latter two.
It is true for Web pages and Internet servers in general. With a small
worlds logic, bigger nodes get new connections faster. “The rich get
richer”, says Buchanan.
Although, as we already know, one cannot yet attribute small worlds
network characters to blogospheres, the presence of more important nodes
can also be noticed, essentially those involved in “news screening”, and
only incorporate other blogs or page contents.

A hierarchical society?

It is easy to understand that a society built on more and more
specialized discussion lists answers to the same criteria. The most
reputable ones, with best people and best networks, do have best chances
to develop new relationships and develop their address books. Again,
riches become richer. For Alexander Bard, a Swedish pop star who became
a philosopher, and his co-author Ian Soderqvsit [13], the complexity of
the Net ends up as a pyramidal organization topped with netocrates: a
group of individuals collecting good addresses and good friends…Today,
everyone’s capacity to store contacts is materialized by the emergence
of new Web services called “social networks” such as Orkut or LinkedIn.
Because of these networks, everyone has the chance to visualize the
extent of their connections and the extent of their correspondent’s
connections, to check how many “degrees of distance” are necessary to
reach a potential employer or a famous artist…
Here again, one should be careful not to mistake the map and the
territory. One should only think of Orkut, LonkedIn, or the likes as an
approximation, a mirror of the “on-line” social network, just as the Web
is only reflection of the real Net. One will still have navigate the Net
continent without a proper cartography for a long time.

Notes :

[1] Semantics :
As a general rule, semantics is a subfield of linguistics studying
/significants /. The word /semantics/ was created at the end of the
nineteenth century by the French linguist Michel Breal. He wrote the
first treatise on semantics.
A semantics category contains words that are sharing some semantics
properties. There can be some junctions between the different semantics
categories. The junction (intersection) between /woman/ and /young/
might be /girl/.

[3] Peer to peer :
The word “poste a poste” is the French translation (initially adopted in
Canada) for the English “peer-to-peer”, often in short, P2P. It is also
possible to translate the term by “pair a pair” or “egal a egal”. In
this article, the term P2P will be used systematically.
P2P designates a network model whose elements (nodes) do not only have a
client-server role, but also function both ways. They are at the same
time clients and servers for other nodes belonging to these networks,
unlike the usual client-server structures.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peer\_to\_peer

[4] http://www.clickz.com/experts/search/article.php/3512376

[5] Blog :
A blog is a Web site where one individual or a group expresse themselves
freely on a rather regular basis. In short, a blog is a personal Web
created by incorporating periodic news or “billets”, usually presented
in reverse chronological order (more recent entries at the top of the
page). Readers are invited to comment, and most of the time, blogs are
enriched with external links.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blog

[6] Rss :
The abbreviation RSS Feed is used for Really Simple Syndication or Rich
Site Summary, and is a file format for Web syndication. It is a dynamic
XML file that your RSS (ex: Mozilla Firefox, Mozilla Thunderbird) can
display and it can be updated regularly. This system is widely used by
the Web community to share latest entries from various information sites
(head news, sciences, computing, etc…) or blogs. This allows the readers
to consult the latest entries without going to the site, and to format
them to their taste. There are seven different RSS formats calling for
the necessary development of a norm. Note that Syndicate is linked with
journalism and article sales to various newspapers. In fact, standard
allows the spread of all kinds of information, headlines, periodic
updates of lists and events. Really Simple Syndication is, in fact, a
simpler journalistic diffusion.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rss

[8] graph theory :
A graph is the symbolic representation of a network. It is an
abstraction of reality, which allows its modelisation.

Remi Sussan’ biography:
Born in 1960, Remi Sussan is a journalist specialized in new
technologies. Above all, he is interested in the way people are using
them, and in the parallel and alternative movements resulting from them
or initiating them. He not only wrote various papers about the most
futuristic angles of computer science (artificial intelligence, virtual
reality) for the specialized press (.Net Pro, Login), scientific
popularization or technical articles (Technikart, Web magazine), but he
also produced work on the underground trends (Introduction aux religions
du futur, La Spirale). He recently published “Les Utopies posthumaines”.

Le Net : vers une cartographie semantique [1] et sociale.

Les anciens orateurs de l’Antiquite avaient pour habitude d’associer aux
points saillants de leur discours differents elements architecturaux
appartenant a un batiment ou une cite. Lorsqu’ils se trouvaient devant
leur public, il leur suffisait de traverser mentalement ce paysage
imaginaire pour se rememorer les differentes etapes de leur
argumentation : tel escalier rappelant une metaphore tres explicite, tel
encorbellement une critique d’un de ses adversaires, et ainsi de suite.
De cet « art de la memoire » qui allait, au cours du Moyen age et de la
Renaissance, se charger de connotations mystiques et magiques s’est
developpe la notion tres occidentale « d’espace mental » qui aboutira,
plusieurs siecles plus tard, a l’idee du cyberspace, a l’Internet [2].

Le Net, comme les anciens palais de memoire, est un espace abstrait dans
lequel se trouvent des elements semantiques, des idees, des concepts,
des textes. Contrairement aux anciennes structures, cependant, les
objets semantiques ne sont pas arbitrairement distribues selon un schema
urbain ou architectural exterieur, elabore independamment. Ici, c’est le
discours lui-meme qui organise l’espace, cree ses paysages, ses
cathedrales et trace les courbes de ses rues. Il y a plus : le palais de
memoire etait un lieu desert, reserve a la meditation de l’orateur
solitaire. Cet espace la est peuple des foules s’y deplacent en suivant
les parcours qui leur sont imposes par le langage lui-meme. La nouvelle
geographie du Net decrit donc, simultanement, un paysage social et un
univers semantique.

Le Web, miroir du Net.

Dans cet espace mental, c’est le Web qui attire le plus le regard des
nouveaux venus. Pourtant, le Web n’est pas le Net. Il n’en est que la
partie visible.
Le Web est un miroir deformant du Net. Le Net est dynamique, compose de
flux d’idees ou d’individus ; le Web est statique, constitue par des
sites, des pages, a l’existence (plus ou moins permanente). Le Net est
peer to peer [3], bidirectionnel. Tout le monde participe et interagit.
Le Web est « client serveur » : un certain nombre de gros pourvoyeurs
distribue l’information a de petits destinataires, qui jouent un role
passif de spectateurs et ne se connectent qu’occasionnellement : la
plupart d’entre nous.
Mais le Web, malgre toutes ces simplifications, possede deja une
geographie complexe. On en fait souvent le domaine de la « transparence
absolue », du « temps reel »... Pourtant, une page Web n’est accessible
qu’a celui qui possede les informations necessaires pour la chercher :
soit un hyperlien vers celle-ci, obtenue par une page qui pointe vers
elle, soit le groupe de mots cles susceptible de la faire apparaitre
dans Google -et dans les trois premieres pages de preferences-. Et
encore, d’apres certaines recherches un moteur de recherches comme
Google ne couvrirait que 69\% du Web environ en ne comptant que les pages
aisement accessibles [4].

Du coup, « surfer sur le Web » s’apparente bien plus, pour l’internaute
serieux, a une partie de Donjons et Dragons qu’a un quelconque sport de
glisse. C’est a qui obtiendra les « cles » permettant d’acceder aux
pages les plus pointues les plus precises : et pour cela, une
connaissance approfondie de son domaine d’etude est indispensable.

Le reseau social.

Cette escalade, deja presente sur le Web, s’avere une metaphore encore
plus exacte lorsqu’on aborde l’aspect plus discret du Net, celui des «
communautes virtuelles », la ou se joue reellement la vie du Reseau.
Pour acceder a celle-ci, il faut, bien entendu, les trouver : les plus
faciles d’acces sont repertoriees dans des catalogues, comme les groupes
alt.* de usenet, voire les listes de diffusion de yahoogroups. Il faut
ensuite savoir se faire accepter par le groupe en question. Meme en
l’absence de moderateurs severes, on peut se retrouver rejete simplement
a cause de l’indifference des autres membres. L’acceptation par le
groupe depend a la fois du niveau de connaissance du sujet de discussion
et aussi, souvent, d’une netiquette qui peut etre parfois specifique a
la communaute.
Il existe enfin des listes de discussions qui ne sont accessibles que
par l’intermediaire d’autres communautes, qui font office de viviers.
Celles-ci se penetrent exclusivement par invitation.
Encore une fois, le paysage numerique nous montre ses creux et ses
bosses, ses plaines accessibles par tous et ses montagnes reservees aux
plus motives.

La blogosphere.

La « blogosphere », sous-ensemble du Web, qui regroupe l’ensemble des «
blogs »[5], possede une geographie encore plus escherienne. Il s’agit en
effet d’un hybride entre un ensemble de site Web et un groupe de
conversations analogue a usenet ou aux mailing lists. Un premier post
lance sur un blog va se retrouver, par le jeu des flux rss [6] et des
connexions entre bloggers, reproduit sur une multitude de pages et
surtout commente en de nombreux endroits. Il est difficile pour un
lecteur de suivre les reactions a un contenu sans avoir une idee precise
de la « communaute » impliquee par une section donnee de la blogosphere,
l’ensemble des acteurs susceptibles d’etre interesses par le meme sujet.
Il existe certes des outils, des moteurs de recherches qui affichent
l’ensemble des occurrences d’un « post » specifie. Un service comme
blogpulse [7] cherche meme a tracer l’evolution d’une conversation a
travers une multitude de sites. Mais, tout comme les moteurs de
recherche traditionnels, ces systemes fonctionnent mieux pour ceux qui
savent quoi chercher et comment le faire.

Le plus petit des mondes.

De fait, c’est la notion des "petits mondes", issue de la theorie des
graphes [8], qui fournit l’architecture propre a l’univers digital, le
plan de ce « palais de memoire ».
Elle permet de devoiler l’infrastructure du Net dans son ensemble, car
ce dernier dans son integralite, y compris le Web, fonctionne selon ses
principes.
Cette theorie mathematique, elaboree par Duncan Watts et Steve Strogatz
[9] explore l’existence d’une categorie particuliere de reseau, dit « en
petits mondes ». Les noeuds les plus proches entre eux se trouvent
fortement connectes formant des « ensembles » des « clusters » [10]
relativement isoles des uns des autres, a une nuance pres : de chacun de
ces clusters en effet sort une ou deux connexions reliant ce dernier a
des noeuds exterieurs.
Aussi surprenant que cela puisse paraitre, l’existence d’un tres petit
nombre de ces relations longue distance suffit a faire du reseau global
un ensemble aisement traversable. C’est la fameuse loi des « six degres
», qui dit qu’il existe grosso modo, six degres de separation entre deux
habitants de notre planete, quels qu’ils soient. Autrement dit, vous
connaissez forcement quelqu’un qui connait quelqu’un etc., qui frequente
une personne cible choisie aleatoirement. C’est vrai du monde reel, mais
encore plus du cyberspace, dans lequel ces « six degres » peuvent etre
franchis en un claquement de doigts.
Ainsi, il existerait une moyenne de quatre degres de separations entre
deux serveurs mails, situes n’importe ou dans le monde. Autrement dit,
pour aller d’un point a un autre, un courrier electronique n’aurait pas
besoin de plus de quatre etapes. Pour se rendre via les hyperliens,
d’une page Web a n’importe quelle autre, la distance maximale, le
diametre du Web, comme on l’appelle, serait d’environ 19. C’est
beaucoup, mais relativement peu quand on pense au nombre de pages
existantes.
La blogosphere globale, plus recente, n’est pas encore entierement
interonnectee. Il n’est pas garanti, en effet, de pouvoir aller d’un
blog a un autre en suivant les liens qui les relient. Un grand nombre
sont simplement deconnectes de leurs voisins. Mais certaines portions de
la blogosphere comme par exemple l’ensemble des « livejournal », une
communaute de blogger qui regroupe environ sept millions de blogs
presenterait environ 6 degres de separation entre ses membres, 10 au
maximum [11].

Nouvelles richesses, nouveaux sommets.

D’apres Mark Buchanan, auteur de Nexus [12], il existerait deux types de
« small worlds networks ». Les premiers, ceux decrits par Duncan Watts,
sont composes de clusters auxquels ont ete ajoutes, aleatoirement,
quelques liens longues distances. Comme le note Buchanan, la
caracteristique de ces petits mondes, tres egalitaires, est qu’il s’agit
de pures constructions mathematiques : ils ne possedent pas d’histoire,
pas de developpement ce n’est pas le cas du Web, et du Net. Ceux la sont
des produits du monde reel et presentent une structure quelque peu
differente : les principales connexions sont assurees par de « gros
connecteurs » qui cumulent un bien plus grand nombre de liaisons que
leurs congeneres. C’est vrai des pages Web comme des serveurs Internet
en general. Et, par la logique propre aux petits mondes les plus gros
noeuds sont egalement ceux qui accumulent le plus vite de nouvelles
connexions. « Les riches deviennent plus riches », note Buchanan.
Bien que, on l’a vu, on ne puisse encore assigner a la blogosphere le
caractere d’un reseau en petits mondes, on remarque egalement la
presence de noeuds plus importants, essentiellement ceux qui se
consacrent au « filtrage de news », c’est-a-dire qui se contentent
d’agreger les contenus d’autres blogs ou pages.

Une societe hierarchisee ?

Il est aise de comprendre que la societe formee par des listes de
discussions de plus en plus specialisees repond aux memes criteres. Ceux
qui ont la meilleure reputation, ceux qui connaissent les bonnes
personnes et les bons reseaux, sont ceux qui ont le plus de chances de
nouer de nouvelles relations, de developper leur carnet d’adresse. Une
fois encore, ce sont les riches qui deviennent plus riches. Pour
Alexander Bard, pop star suedoise devenue philosophe, et son coauteur
Ian Soderqvsit [13], la complexite du Net lui donne au final une
organisation pyramidale au sommet de laquelle se trouvent les
netocraties : un groupe d’individus qui cumulent les bonnes adresses,
les bons amis... Aujourd’hui, la capacite de chacun a accumuler des
contacts est materialisee par l’existence de nouveaux services Web, les
« reseaux sociaux » comme Orkut ou LinkedIn. Grace a ces reseaux, chacun
peut visualiser l’etendue de ses relations et celle de ses
correspondants, voir combien de « degres de separation » lui sont
necessaires pour joindre tel eventuel employeur, tel artiste admire…
Mais ici encore, il faut eviter de confondre la carte et le territoire.
On ne peut voir en Orkut, LinkedIn ou leur successeurs qu’une
approximation, un miroir du reseau social « on-line », tout comme le Web
n’est que le reflet du Net reel. Pour longtemps encore, nous devrons
nous contenter de traverser le continent du Net sans disposer de
cartographie adequate.

Notes :

[1] Semantique :
D'une maniere generale, la semantique est une branche de la linguistique
qui etudie les /signifies/. Le mot /semantique/ a ete invente a la fin
du XIX^e siecle par le linguiste francais Michel Breal, auteur du
premier traite de semantique.
Une classe semantique contient des mots qui partagent certaines
proprietes semantiques. Il peut y avoir des intersections entre les
classes semantiques. L'intersection de /femme/ et /jeune/ peut etre /fille/.

[3] Peer to peer :
Le terme poste a poste est la traduction (initialement adoptee au
Canada) de l'anglais peer-to-peer, laquelle est souvent abregee P2P. On
peut aussi traduire par « pair a pair » ou « egal a egal ». Dans cet
article, l'abreviation P2P sera utilisee de facon systematique.
P2P designe un modele de reseau informatique dont les elements (les
noeuds) ne jouent pas exclusivement les roles de client ou de serveur
mais fonctionnent des deux facons, en etant a la fois clients et
serveurs des autres noeuds de ces reseaux, contrairement aux systemes de
type client-serveur, au sens habituel du terme.
http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peer\_to\_peer

[5] Blog :
Un blog est un site web sur lequel une ou plusieurs personnes
s'expriment de facon libre, sur la base d'une certaine periodicite. De
facon tres synthetique, un blog est un site Web personnel compose
essentiellement d'actualites (ou "billets"), publiees au fil de l'eau et
apparaissant selon un ordre antechronologique (les plus recentes en haut
de page), susceptibles d'etre commentees par les lecteurs et le plus
souvent enrichies de liens externes.
http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blog

[6] Rss :
Un flux RSS ou fil RSS ("RSS Feed" en anglais), sigle de Really Simple
Syndication (syndication vraiment simple), ou de Rich Site Summary
(resume complet d'un site) est un format de syndication de contenu
Web.C'est un fichier XML dynamique dont votre lecteur RSS (ex: Mozilla
Firefox, Mozilla Thunderbird) affiche le contenu qui est mis a jour en
permanence. Ce systeme est tres utilise pour diffuser les nouvelles des
sites d'information (actualite, sciences, informatique, etc.) ou des
blogs, ce qui permet de consulter ces dernieres sans visiter le site, ou
bien de les formater a sa guise, etc. Il existe sept formats differents
de RSS, ce qui rend indispensable l'etablissement d'une norme.
Il est a noter que Syndicate, en anglais, est en rapport avec le
journalisme et la vente d'un article a plusieurs journaux. Mais en fait
le standard permet de diffuser toutes sortes d'information, d'alertes,
de mise a jour de listes ou d'evenements. Really Simple Syndication se
rapproche donc d'une diffusion journalistique simplifiee.
http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rich\_Site\_Summary

[7] Blogpulse peut etre utilise pour chercher dans les blogs

[8] Theorie des graphes :
Un graphe est une representation symbolique d’un reseau. Il s’agit d’une
abstraction de la realite de sorte a permettre sa modelisation.
