What is the impact of new technology in our daily lives? This question is at the heart of the Radio-Canada webseries Bienvenue chez les #Numéricains. 2011 Trudeau scholar and social and public communication professor at Université du Québec à Montréal, Mélanie Millette, worked on the show as science popularizer. She reviewed scientific research, while showcasing original perspectives on topics addressed.

The series of ten audio webcasts features some 30 audio and video testimonies and tells the stories of creators, archivists, athletes, entrepreneurs, nomads, gourmets, and rebel citizens of the digital world.
