Insist on reading & independent thinking.

Hi all, relax, I am still here.

Just that I will write in English in the future.

This blog has been hosting to wordpress.com, part of it can not be accessed in China, so I can escape out from the government’s control, and focus on writing.

I know that has not been updated for a long time. Because there are more meaningful things out of the Internet. I just did not have time to blogging, and will not give the blog to a closed protocol, such as WeChat. I always insist rss full-text output for free browsing.

Insist on reading, insisted independent thinking.
The heart of Love freedom, democracy never stops. God loves me. Courage is with me.

A heavy user of Internet, what will happen if disconnected?

leave a comment »

2015-01-01offline

The object of this experiment is myself.

The last time disconnected the Internet was go to Beijing in 2001. There was no smart phones and mobile Internet, so disconnected with the world as long as two weeks, when I got home, typing hands are stiff.

Recently move to a new house, I suddenly realized that all these years has not been real quiet, so I thought: why not try life without the Internet? Gmail also blocked completely by China’s goverment (of course I can access it), I do not learn some fools seclusion, just think in these took too much time.
Well, I will spend more time to join parties underline, cooking, watching movies, reading, writing articles, playing consoles, sleeping.

As an IT and Internet practitioner, disconnect is not an easy thing. My plans are:

  • Not to install fiber-optic, broadband or telephone. (Completed)
  • Log off / stop all social services except FB. (Completed)
  • The only connection that can be used is a mobile phone network and Wechat app.
  • I can watch news every day, to search information, WOW time is also free, but all operations are taking cellular network traffic.
  • I can go to Internet cafes three hours each weekend, finish browsing pages one week, playing WOW, take back information for next week.
  • Never do matters above through company or others’ computer, which is not allowed to cheat.
  • Tentative experimental period of six months, up to 2G limited traffic.

Today is January 1, this plan will begin today.
Wish you all a Happy New Year, wish I could be successfully completed.
Status update:
The experiment lasted for a short time.
The first afternoon I was not used to Internet cafes.
The third day I called to the ISP, so I have resumed the Internet in a week.

在路上

with 3 comments

金樽清酒斗十千,玉盤珍羞直萬錢。
停杯投箸不能食,拔劍四顧心茫然。
欲渡黃河冰塞川,將登太行雪滿山。
閑來垂釣碧溪上,忽復乘舟夢日邊。
行路難!行路難!多歧路,今安在?
長風破浪會有時,直掛雲帆濟滄海。

未曾忘記,未敢忘記。
只要有一個紀念者,歷史就不會被湮沒。

網絡實名制

leave a comment »

實名制好像就是萬用靈丹,用一次上癮以後就離不開了。.
這不,網絡實名制來了。和綠壩一樣,且看其是何下場。
請隨意。

最近好像變懶了,也是因為忙的緣故,一直沒寫什麼新東西。
有時候做夢或醒來的時候會有一個很好的思路,忙完一天就忘了。

跑不了你個賣切糕的

with 3 comments

最近兩天的新聞關鍵詞就是“切糕”了,這讓我想起一個人。
以前在廣告公司做的時候,有一位新疆同事,名字叫小虎。平常他的話不多,很多同事與他有距離感。
有一次我們因為討論PSP而聊了起來,慢慢的熟悉後,我發現他是個很好的朋友。

小虎是一個有獨立思想的人,我們能夠平和的討論民族矛盾等話題。
那一年,烏魯木齊7.5事件還沒有發生,當時新疆還沒有爆發出尖銳的矛盾,很多維族人和漢族人只是不相往來。
在一般民眾的眼裡,新疆好像總是和小偷、扎針、切糕、搶劫這些負面的詞語聯繫在一起;而在新疆民眾眼裡,漢族人也好不到哪去。這裡面有歷史原因,不便評論。不過,最明顯的道理是:掠奪資源,剝奪信仰,怎能不讓原住民反抗?
兩個民族之間互相仇視,好在我和小虎之間不存在這些。

有一次我倆聊起刀郎的音樂。我是很喜歡刀郎的,他說:“你說的那個是漢人的刀郎,不是我們維族的刀郎。”
我不禁微笑,“即便是你,也不能逃出這民族主義的牢籠嗎。”小虎還是很堅持。

東北有句話叫“跑不了你個賣切糕的”,意思大概是做了壞事就逃不脫審判。
希望在這個環境下,有獨立思想的人能多一些,少些矛盾,多些理解。

Google三兒子入手

with 3 comments


從Nexus One換到Nexus S,再到Galaxy Nexus。Google是不是應該給我頒發個什麼獎啊。

GN外觀漂亮,屏幕大了很多,但手感很不好。SAmoled屏幕黑色出眾,不過有顆粒感,對比度大。屏幕總體表現不如NS那麼圓潤和飽滿。
硬件當然是提升了的,續航也不錯。
總之,GN並沒有給人們一種驚艷的感覺,只算是對NS的一次常規升級。看今年聖誕節的四兒子吧!

所謂國民教育,根本就是違背教師精神

with 2 comments

某些腦殘想給香港人上國民教育課,反被香港人上了公民教育課。
本來香港人在橋上走的好好的,非要把人家拉下水摸石頭,這不是找罵是什麼?活該。

今天是教師節,祝我的幾位恩師,包括Google和Wikipedia,節日快樂!
今年,也對自己說一聲:節日快樂!
昨天正式的成為了一位小朋友的導師,這孩子做事很有心,也肯學、肯自我覺察,很有做心理的潛質。
