Overall remarks and conclusions

  • important business and dissemination aspect
    • official "On est la pour faire un petit de pub pour les startups."
    • pervasive 2-sided-market business model?
    • consequently is "community manager" the new salesman dedicated to crowds
  • presence d'ethonologue, psychologues, entrepreneurs, ... impression de se faire mesurer sur un nombre dimensions infinies par toutes les personnes presentes ;)
  • mention of BarCamp and community oriented yet
    • 0 presentation from "the public" and
    • a planning made before the event
  • does it deserve the name "QSParis" while the original Bay Area QS Meetup now has the rule that if you are selling something, you can not give a presentation?
    • eventually QS Conference but definitely not "QS Show&Tell"
  • mostly mainly about plotting personal data
    • Excel for the masses?
    • quid of knowledge? wisdom? (classical PIM questions)
  • recurrent question
    • iPhone support? Android support? open API? open data?
  • for democrazation via startups it is very interesting
    • regarding new practices and peer to peer exchange rather check #lifehacking ; PSES : /tmp/lab
