The 21st Century Website: The Emergence of Information represents Michel Cartier’s intellectual testament. The website was first launched in 2013 and was continuously modified and expanded by Mr. Cartier until 2020. The website may appear incomplete, but perhaps it was never meant to be completed, as it serves as an ever-evolving reflection on the current world and its dynamics. The reader can refer to the french version, which is more complete, where images were not translated.
Michel Cartier was originally a typographer and retained a strong commitment to precise layout. Therefore, this website is designed to be viewed on a computer screen to adhere to typographic standards that enhance readability (he often spoke of the “eye span”) that were dear to him. He passed away in September 2023.
This document was developed for people who are not computer scientists or information technologists.
It was developed for all those people who are worried about the changes that are taking place and who don’t spend their whole day in front of a screen.
