计算机世界的教条和谎言

September 16th, 2013 § 3 comments

科技发展是客观的吗?人的思维模式是固定的吗?我们现在拥有的互联网是最好的吗?Wikipedia会变得更好吗?有没有人曾想过不一样的互联网呢?我们了解计算机的未来吗?

我们这一代长大在这个计算机的时代,很多概念都是被直接灌输来的,实际上计算机世界里有很多的谎言、政治和斗争。
这是我在一个朋友(hi,老赵)组织的沙龙里做了一期演讲,关于计算机和互联网发展故事。希望通过讨论计算机网络的历史和关键的人物,能够打破你的一些固有想法,给你一些新启发。

 

引用一些我很喜欢的Quote吧,

“当我们不接受我们最开始看到的世界的时候,真正的理解才开始” All understanding begins with our not accepting the world as it appears” – Susan Sontag

“软件设计对人类来说太重要了,不能只从纯粹技术视角去做决定” (“Software is too important to human life to allow the decisions be made with purely technical view”) – Ted Nelson

“游戏设计比办公软件好很多的原因是,创造游戏的人自己爱玩游戏,但是设计办公软件的人对办公软件毫无兴趣” (“The reason video game is so much better than office software is people who create video games love to play video games, but people who design softwares don’t give a shit”)  – Ted Nelson

“我们好像陷入了对现有事物的认识当中,使得我们只能看到那些导致现状的过去,很难看到其他部分的过去。也就意味着,我们对未来的认知很难突破对现有状况的小步改进”  (“We seem to be trapped in single conception of the present and that makes is hard for us to see it in any terms except the terms that led up to the present that we are in. That means it is hard to conceive the future that doesn’t incremental on the present.”) – Alan Kay

“对于一个创新者来说,最危险的想法就是认为你知道你在做什么.” (“The most dangerous thought you can have as a creative person is to think you know what you are doing.”) – Alan Kay

“学习工具,实用工具,但是不要接受工具,永远质疑它们,永远留心可替代的想法” (“Learning tools and use tools, but don’t accept tools, always distrust them; always be alert for alternative ways of thinking.”) – Bret Victor

“只有当你知道一些专业知识的时候你才会胆怯”  (“It’s only when you know something about a profession that you are timid or careful”) – Orson Welles
