Editorial
 According to Reid Hoffman - founder and executive chairman at LinkedIn - and Ben Casnocha - an award-
winning entrepreneur and author - « authenticity is the key to building a truly helpful professional network ».« Many people are turned off by the topic of networking. They think it’s slimy, inauthentic. Luckily, building hisnetwork doesn’t have to be like that. The good relationship builders try to help others rst. They don’t keepscore. And they prioritize high-quality relationships over a large number of connections ».Selon Reid Hoffman - fondateur et directeur exécutif de LinkedIn - et Ben Casnocha - auteur et entrepreneur primé - l’authenticité «est la clé pour construire un réseau professionnel vraiment utile».«De nombreuses personnes sont rebutées par le sujet de la mise en réseau. Elles pensent que c’est ni hon
-
nête, ni sincère. Heureusement, la question peut et ne doit pas être abordée de cette manière. Les personnessachant manager leur réseau essaient d’abord d’aider les autres. Elles ne calculent pas et donnent la prioritéaux relations de haute qualité plutôt qu’à un grand nombre de connexions.»

The Atlantic, G. Pascal Zachary, February 25, 2012 
The old approach was about how to prevent Africafrom getting poorer. New thinking on development is toshare Africa’s wealth more equitably.That’s right: Africa’s wealth! In the ten years from 2000to 2010, six of the world’s ten fastest-growing countrieswere in sub-Saharan Africa: Angola, Nigeria, Ethiopia,
Chad, Mozambique, and Rwanda.
The New York Times, David Barbosa & CharlesDuhigg, February 19, 2012 
The announcement Saturday that Foxconn Technology— one of the world’s largest electronics manufacturers— will sharply raise salaries and reduce overtime at itsChinese factories signals that pressure from workers,international markets and concerns among Western
consumers about working conditions is driving a fun-
damental shift that could accelerate an already rapidlychanging Chinese economy.For that system to genuinely change, Foxconn, itscompetitors and their clients — which include Apple,Hewlett-Packard, Dell and the world’s other large elec

The Internet makes dumb people dumber and smartpeople smarter. If you don’t know how to use it, or don’thave the background to ask the right questions, you’llend up with a head full of nonsense.But if you do know how to use it, it’s an endless wealth
of information.
