On sharing the magic of the creative process, w/ Serbest Salih, The Creative Independent #

They see the world from different levels. It’s a very innocent perspective because it’s without editing—it is a free moment without any pressure. When they see any moment that inspires them, they capture it. Their work is about the celebration of childhood; about seeing the world through the eyes of children, not as adults. … When I teach them photography composition, I don’t tell them what they should do. I tell them that photography doesn’t have rules—that when you shoot, you just have to feel it. I try to make sure not to pressure them. [Even though] it’s analog photography, and it’s a limited [medium], I tell them, “You have just to feel it, you can shoot whatever you want.”

教学是另一种获取灵感的途径:新手们未受打磨的灵感、眼光、视角,过程中前后对比体会差异和利弊。

Quoted from A Psalm for the Wild-Built by Becky Chambers, How Websites Die by Wesley #

… And I also included this lovely quote from A Psalm for the Wild-Built by Becky Chambers:

It is difficult for anyone born and raised in human infrastructure to truly internalize the fact that your view of the world is backward. Even if you fully know that you live in a natural world that existed before you and will continue long after, even if you know that the wilderness is the default state of things, and that nature is not something that only happens in carefully curated enclaves between towns, something that pops up in empty spaces if you ignore them for a while, even if you spend your whole life believing yourself to be deeply in touch with the ebb and flow, the cycle, the ecosystem as it actually is, you will still have trouble picturing an untouched world. You will still struggle to understand that human constructs are carved out and overlaid, that these are the places that are the in-between, not the other way around.

Interview: Vitalik Buterin, creator of Ethereum, Noahpinion #

I definitely think that in the medium-term future cryptocurrencies will settle down and be only about as volatile as gold or the stock market. The main question is just what level the prices will settle down at. … There’s a few pro- proof of work arguments. In my view the strongest argument is the “costless simulation” issue. Basically, the idea is that in a proof of stake chain, an attacker could reach out to the owners of the coins at some point many years ago, buy up their old keys for a very low price (because those coins have since been moved to addresses controlled by different keys), and use those coins to create a different chain that forks off from that point and, in a vacuum, looks like a valid history. A node that knows only the protocol rules, connecting to the network from scratch, would not be able to tell the difference between the actual chain and this simulated chain provided by an attacker. In PoW, on the other hand, creating such a simulated alternate chain requires redoing an equal amount of proof of work.

An Interview with Venture Capitalist Bill Gurley, MBA ’93 #

One of the things that’s really important about venture is you have to conceptualize ideas that have lots of running room, and where the incumbents aren’t going to play.

白板报:两只眼睛看到的 CMkids 大地艺术 #

在回家的地铁上,小 Jo 说:

「我明白了,我们应当用两只眼睛看世界。」

「是哪两只眼睛呢?」

我启发式地提问,很期待他说:「一只是眼睛叫科学,一只眼睛叫艺术。」

然而,他回答:「一只是自己的眼睛,一只是朋友的眼睛。」

人很难想象超出自己认知范围的事物,带来的要求是人与人,或者人与机器之间的交流。

陈先发:稀粥颂 #

多年来我每日一顿稀粥。在它的清淡与
嶙峋之间,在若有若无的餐中低语之间

我埋头坐在桌边。听雨点击打玻璃和桉叶
这只是一个习惯。是的,一个漫无目的的习惯

小时候在稀粥中我们滚铁环
看飞转的陀螺发呆,躲避旷野的闷雷

我们冒雨在荒冈筑起
父亲的坟头,我们继承他的习惯又

重回这餐桌边。像溪水提在桶中
已无当年之怒――是的,我们为这种清淡而发抖

这里面再无秘诀可言了?我听到雨点
击打到桉叶之前,一些东西正起身离去

它映着我碗中的宽袍大袖,和
渐已灰白的双鬓。我的脸。我们的脸

在裂帛中在晚霞下弥漫着的
偏街和小巷。我坐在这里。这清淡远在拒绝之先

(2010 年 7 月)

随感 #

  1. 来自用户自身行为习惯的粘性与日活:人们更多地发 Instagram Story(限时动态),以至于部分的交互被框定在 24 小时内,否则被落下。

  2. Gated: Noise-Canceling Headphones for Email,以及 @duck.com:反思日常,反思理所当然的接受——为什么发信人预设收信人一定要“收到信件”和“看到信件”?

  3. 无多少差异的底层逻辑,用工文化、专业求职市场买卖方在未来转变的可能

    ⋯⋯最後,Legalist 是一個員工數 50 人且全遠距協作的團隊。Shang 表示這讓他們得以獵取到一些不想在傳統對沖基金文化中工作、但本身具備很強專業技能與市場嗅覺的人才。上述這點讓我印象非常深刻。過去人們常提的「破壞」是技術、商業模式上的突破,如今一種新型態的破壞或許是從更根本的地方下手:人才。畢竟,無法吸引人才的公司,都終將被超越。

  4. 从订户身上挖钱,而少见从片商和广告商身上挖钱:撬得动、搅得浑的池子,谁比较深?

  5. 生态作为一种思维工具:和链条式相比,它更圆,更接近现实世界。不过最重要的是它足够,对这个世界的反应足够快。

    Adner 在本書中替生態系下了一個我認為夠精簡的定義:

    一個生態系就是「合作夥伴」透過「價值結構」相互作用,向「終端客戶」傳遞「價值主張」。

    ⋯⋯柯達的失敗不在於它沒有轉型,而是它只在不變的生態系假設下轉型,只關注傳統分析框架下的競爭對手(例如:富士),而忽略合作夥伴才是真正可能帶來破壞的角色。

    一个好的例子(Alexa),一个滥用或者缺失的例子(微软)。

  6. 丢掉数字,似乎能让我们更好理解时间。例如一个进度条,一张饼图。

  7. 书被神圣化了,特别是对于小孩来讲,书和其他所有的一切一样,都只是玩具。重要的地方很多人说过:从具象的爱中来又从中抽身、朋友式的对话,以及无尽的想象力。(不过这不代表不需要监管和讨论,站在社会教化的角度)不要期待小孩子能被硬灌出什么花样。庄周梦蝶,蝶梦庄周——明天,我们能去一趟公园玩儿吗?

  8. 其实我们往往并非“在重大的事情上,很容易做决定,反而在微小的事情上,会思量很久”,而是我们总觉得那些大事“本可以有更好的结果”,由此带来的很多回想,使自己误以为是”没有经过多少的思量“。实际上这些大事在头顶回旋,找准每天的缝隙钻进颅内,成百上千,成千上万次。对意识、潜意识的丈量,好像缺少一套工具,也这么缺少一根筋。

  9. 催泪文字有一共性,它们由日常和平凡的字眼拼成。
