I wish you all an excellent year 2009 filled with happiness in your private life as well as in your professional life.
Besides that, I wish you to better understand the world we all live in. For this purpose, here are some subjects that deserve all your attention and about which I will blog soon.
This beginning of the new year will be very busy around here. Indeed, I am going to make a major update for ThinkoSphere.com with the new design and I will start a blogging series about Control Systems. Later on I will blog about the fractal theory applied to finance because it is today the best theory explaining the crisis that I have found so far. I am currently reading the book “fractals, hazard and finance” from Benoit Mandelbrot*, father of the fractal theory. This book is amazing, it is ten years old but it looks like it was written 2 days ago, after the crisis.
Moreover, I also wish you to be better understood by your company, by your mayor, by your government. I wish you more democracy in your environment. This starts by giving more your opinion when you are polled. So I wish you more polls and finally I wish you to find your interest in ThinkoSphere.com.
* I am actually speaking about “fractale, hasard et finance” a book in French. Its equivalent in English is The (Mis)behaviour of Markets: A Fractal View of Risk, Ruin and Reward. This is probably the best quality and best quality/price ratio book about finance you can buy nowadays!
Web 2 is a lot about grading and ranking. So I guess it is logical that bloggers themselves get ranked. However there are dozens of ranking systems. Thus bloggers get their revenge: they can rank the ranking systems !
Ouriel Ohayon made a great post (in French) here and he asks the following :
Which ranking is, according to you, the most meaningful ?
You can answer below:
As I am coding the poll website thinkosphere.com you probably already know that I am a huge fan of internet polls, even if they currently lack too many features. Thanks to this post I discovered one more lacking feature : publishing a poll in several languages. I do not know about a poll engine offering this capability. I guess I will have to do it myself !
