blog过时了吗?

霍炬说:
上一个热潮是blog时代。。。

我好伤心,我是如此喜欢blog呢!难道它已经过时了?

我也有玩twitter和微博,但是这两个我都不喜欢,我还是喜欢blog多一点。(虽然看了霍炬的《microblogging和微博信息架构产品差距和影响》又钩起我再次尝试twitter的星星之火。BTW, 我觉得他把twitter说得太过完美了……)

为什么?

简单:

(*) 没有字数限制,感情泛滥嘛,当然要滔滔江水
(*) 没有被信息潮流淹没的危险。微博的信息实在太多,完全吃不消了,才玩了几天,已经觉得被它榨干了。还是blog好,我可以慢慢写,慢慢回味

另记:今天已经是我第二次听说“阅读压力”了。没错,RSS阅读的确很有阅读压力,不过最近我已经找到方法去减轻这种压力了:别按照latest/newest的顺序去读书了,你不是有将它们分类吗,就按照分类来读,压力顿减了不少。不过还需继续减压!

跑步是会让人上瘾的……

我发现我从来没有如此“沉迷”过跑步,Learn to Run 10k 我竟然坚持了4周了,真是邪了门了!



在跑步这件事上,其实有两样东西让我addict:

1. 《三国演义》评书,这三国打得真热闹,顺便学习不少奸诈的伎俩!赞~~~
2. 不断燃烧的calories,让我离传说中的小蛮腰又接近了2mm,很有成就感啊!赞~~~

OK!OK!我承认,真正隐藏在run 10k背后不可告人的目的:我要backpacking,起码得7天吧???其实这世上只有一件事情可以让我去跑步,那就是旅行!!!多少年前,知道要去长白山爬山,我就跑了3个月,我容易嘛我!!! >_<

继续跑!!!! (几时才可以去backpacking啊?!!我们到底要去哪里啊?!!!)

ZT *Corporate chaos !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!* ZT

I re-bloged the following joke because that's exactly what had happened in our company. :)

===========================================================================


Programmer to Team Leader :
“We can’t do this proposed project.**CAN NOT**. It will involve a major design change and no one in our team knows the design of this legacy system. And above that, nobody in our company knows the language in which this application has been written. So even if somebody wants to work on it, they can’t. If you ask my personal opinion, the company should never take these type of projects.”

Team Leader to Project Manager:
“This project will involve a design change. Currently, we don’t have any staff who has experience in this type of work. Also, the language is unfamiliar to us, so we will have to arrange for some training if we take this project. In my personal opinion, we are not ready to take on a project of this nature.”

Project Manager to 1st Level Manager:
“This project involves a design change in the system and we don’t have much experience in that area. Also, not many people in our company are appropriately trained for it. In my personal opinion, we might be able to do the project but we would need more time than usual to complete it.”

1st Level Manager to Senior Level Manager:
“This project involves design re-engineering. We have some people who have worked in this area and others who know the implementation language. So they can train other people. In my personal opinion we should take this project but with caution.”

Senior Level Manager to CEO:
“This project will demonstrate to the industry our capabilities in remodeling the design of a complete legacy system. We have all the necessary skills and people to execute this project successfully. Some people have already given in house training in this area to other staff members. In my personal opinion, we should not let this project slip by us under any circumstances.”

CEO to Client:
“This is the type of project in which our company specializes. We have executed many projects of the same nature for many large clients. Trust me when I say that we are the most competent firm in the industry for doing this kind of work. It is my personal opinion that we can execute this project successfully and well within the given time frame.

说说我眼中的“推崇广府文化”

最近新开微博,为解“乡愁”,关注了几个以推崇广符文化的微博,可是越看越不是滋味,心里非常忐忑,不吐不快。

首先是有些人在推崇广府文化的同时,鄙视外地人,出言不逊,令我十分坐立不安。

在没出国之前,我身边就有很多外省的朋友、同事,大家和睦相处。虽然讲着不同的方言,但是却无碍沟通,共同渡过一同面对的困难。在我的眼里,朋友是没有地域的区分的,他们都是和我一起嘻笑怒骂的、我很care的那群人!

出了国后,朋友的圈子日益扩大,不同肤色的,不同文化的,需要我不断地去了解、认同。地球村,这是个我们现今都无法回避的现实,为什么我们现在还在不断地去标榜广州、广东的地域性,而忘记其实外面的世界是如此浩瀚无边,固步自封,只能沦为落后。要知道,广州、广东之所以成为现在的规模、形态,完全是因为它身处沿海,能不断接受海外的新思想、新技术,我们实在没有理由去反其道而行之!

再回头看看,外地人对广州、广东的贡献是多么巨大。没有那么多农民工背井离乡,干着最累最苦的活,广州、广东怎么可能发展地如此迅速,一日千里呢!

其次,就是有人将广府文化与外省文化对立。

当我看到有人说龙舟是外省词,龙船才是广府词,我们应该只用龙船,不用龙舟,我觉得非常不可思议。

要知道,广府话里,其实有很多很多外来词,例如士多(store)、的士(Taxi)、士巴拿(spanner)…… 这些词已经扎根在广府话里,没有人会再深究这些词其实来源于外语。如果我们对这些词都如此包容,为什么还非得要去用龙船而不用龙舟呢。

在我看来,龙舟这个词在广府语的发音是如此响亮,远比龙船要响亮,这就是为什么它的使用比龙船要广泛。存在即是合理,人为地去干涉,这是不是揠苗助长呢?

其实我应该在一开始就表明我的立场:作为一个土生土长的广州妹,我支持推广广府文化,所有试图摧毁、贬低广府文化的行为,我都表示强烈的鄙视和反对!但是推广广府文化,并不等同于诋毁其他的文化,我们不能这么短视、狭隘,这对于广府文化只有危害、没有帮助。我们不需要在广府文化周围建立高墙、深壑,与其他美妙的文化去割裂、敌视。恰恰相反,我们必须不断去学习其他文化里美妙、有用的东西,与广府文化融汇贯通,让广府文化与时并进、源远流长!!

我更希望大家在推广广府文化的时候,能更加理性、包容!我们作为广州人,应该推广广府文化,但是千万不能借此去诋毁其他人和文化,这是我们一定不能做的事情!!
