On January 27, 2004, Editor in Chief Dominique Boullier and the entire editorial board of Les cahiers du numérique
resigned from the journal and released an open letter explaining why.
They point to CduN's high price and limited online access policy which
"contradict our objectives as researchers".
I sense that I'm on the verge of attaining fame for being the only one
who hasn't set foot on planet Orkut. After letting a wave of
invitations fly by, I've now started getting mail asking me why I'm not
there. In two words: no time.
And if there is any truth to what Mark wrote about it ("there's one thing it doesn't have... soul. For all the effort
that has gone into it, Orkut is a remarkably boring place... about as
exciting as Stanford University on a Monday night before midterms.") - and I've read other similar testimonials - I had better stick to good ol' Ryze and LinkedIn for now.
