白日梦开场白

总有一些想法

不着边际的,不识时务的,天马行空的…

我的执行力很差,脑袋又转得太快,只好把想法记下来,算是一种记录吧。

忘记,最对不起自己消耗的脑细胞了…

Google互联网搜索全国校园巡讲太原科技大学站

中午才知道下午有google讲座,小激动了一下。

cancel掉学院组织的考研讲座,早早的就去google讲座的阶教占位了。Google就是不一样,吸引了很多人,即使我认为我去的很早,还是落在了很多人之后,只坐到了中间靠后的位置。

演讲人是google研究院的副院长幺宝钢,从微软跳槽到google的。讲座的内容其实也没有什么稀奇的,主要是关于google的产品简介,以及google的理念。无关励志无关招聘。

演讲的时候有互动,答对问题有奖,有个问题是google的算法的名字,第一个回答的不是我,但是那个人没回答对。机会就落到我头上了,还好我把握住了,不就是page rank嘛。于是一本由李开复亲笔签名的《一网情深》就属于我了。而且好多人鼓掌哦,貌似是因为我是女生吧。很高兴能得到这本书,尽管我并不想读它。

今天发现google的另外两个应用,一个是协作平台,还有一个是图书。协作平台,无疑离云计算更近了。

google对于我来说就是一本科幻小说,带了一点点的恐怖色彩,因为垄断……

过去 现在 未来

正在看很多关于人生思考的书以及文章,文章如卡莉和steve jobs在某某些大学的演讲稿和台湾某大学老师关于生命进程的文章:生命是一种长期而持续的累积过程。前两篇很早以前就看过,在看了(生命是一种长期而持续的累积过程)之后,想起了这两篇,感谢互联网搜索的方便,不需要等待太长时间我重新回顾了曾经让我有所收获的文章。看过之后又有了新的比以前更深的感触。
这得益于一直在练的瑜珈。医生的建议一直是有效的:不停的锻炼。把自己的身体搞得很累,使那些偏执的思想与思维没有存在的时间,成为习惯之后,那些繁杂的混乱的思维销迹于疲惫的身体与大脑之中。这个建议一直没有得到很好的执行,我以前是用慢跑来锻炼的,在没有得到明显效果之前,我已经没有坚持下去的恒心了。所以我整个精神状态一直都反反复复的。
瑜珈,暑假里练出了甜头,主要是身体上的,变瘦了,走路的时候背挺直了,以前总爱出点小毛病的脖子变强壮了。父母也乐得看见这样的变化,在他们的支持下,开学之后,在市里找了个瑜珈馆继续练,终于找到了一个能持续锻炼的方式。现在慢慢的感觉到自己的精神状态也在得到改善,内心不再虚弱:)现在再看自己的the best is yet to come这篇博文,完全就是一个怨妇嘛,不知道怎么的心来血潮就写出那么一篇酸文,那不是我写那篇题目的初衷。总之,暂时来看(总是对未来不敢抱有太大的信心)我正在朝好的方向发展,看问题的方式也有了变化。扯到这,再回到文章开头提到的那三篇文章,因为最近状态还行,那三篇文章,不管之前看过没看过,这次看了之后,都有了新的领悟,能从心底接受文章传达的理念(找不出合适的字句描述,只能先暂时这么表达)。
最近这两天我在读conversations with god。大一的时候就知道这本书不错,那时候觉得自己英语太烂,没读下去。后来在网上上发现了中文版的,觉得翻译的一般,而且也没有心情去读它(主要还是精神状态不好)。现在我觉得是时候去读它了,书里有一句话,特别适合解释为什么我现在要读它:when the student is ready,the teacher will appear。我准备好了接受一些不一样东西,脱离以前的生活轨迹和乱七八糟偏执的逻辑。所以现在读书,听音乐,感受到的比以前更多,仿佛那些东西都能住到我的心里去。
与此同时,还有(太傻十日谈)。大一的时候读过一遍,最近因为搜集考研信息,再次勿打勿撞来到太傻论坛。想起大一那会儿我还没电脑,上网只能到网络中心。到网络中心一般都抓紧时间看网页,时间就是金钱,嘿嘿…就是这本书,破天荒的让我在网络中心的电脑前不看网页,直到以最快的速度看完这本书。这本书的主题是留学操作,但是上升到了哲学的层面,所以,不管你是留学,考研,找工作,只要想对自己做点提升,这本书还是值得一看的。
又扯了好多,回归题目吧。
基本上算是定下来要考研了,最近在网上找了很多考研心得,复习计划,常识,心路历程。保存成txt,吓了一跳,400多kb,真不少。一路看下来也长了不少见识,基本上了解了考研备考是怎么一回事。他们是怎样经历了如何如何的煎熬和奋斗最后如何功亏一溃或者功成名就。算是对考研那点事有了大致的了解。
但是在看过本文开头提到的那几本书和文之后,我觉得我得重新思考自己的未来。为什么要考研?为了心里的那点时有时无,时小时大的没能考上名校的不甘?为了证明自己?为了逃避就业?为了到北京/上海看大大小小的数不胜数的演出?我生活的目标是什么?无解。仔细回忆了一下,发现自己确实没有明确的计划与目标。即使有过也很可笑和荒唐,比如要有很多很多钱,要做IT大腕,要做金融大鳄。总是把事情想得很简单。最近有打算要跟朋友合伙卖东西,才发现0-1的转变需要多么大的努力。
对自己考研的决定产生怀疑,到底要的是一个什么样的未来?过去的两年里,我并没有积累到什么专业背景,与人交流的能力也乏善可陈。我到底能有一个什么样的未来?父母并没有为我安排好一切,当然我也希望能打造出属于自己的一片天空,而不是在他们的阴影下生活。
有人说一个人的天赋是永远不会丢的,不管你如何去忘掉它,忽略它,蓦然回首
它依然在那。在这段时间的锻炼里,我慢慢的接近,还原那个最真实的自己,那个我曾经担心再也找不到的自己。
过去的已经结束,新的征程还未开始,我站在过去的阴影中,憧憬着未来,现在是一无所有的尴尬。在尴尬中挺立,行进,期待现状能一点点的好起来。The Best Is Yet To Come!
最后帖一首歌词,AK47的所有歌里,这不是我最喜欢的,但无疑是最贴合我这段时间的心境的。
无人喝彩
词:老猫 编:AK-47
洞察生命  如痛楚  如旷野
如时代中的回音
虽然回音中并无旋律
亲吻刀刃
如自由 如音乐
如宿命中的蜕变
虽然蜕变中无人喝彩

PS:没有人生来就非常强悍,强悍只是因为早先曾经历过绝望的深渊和黑暗的岁月。

太原科技大学吃饭指南(不完全版)

太原科技大学吃饭指南(不完全版)欢迎补充,转载请注明出处以及作者Amy Hyde,谢谢支持!
因为这学期决定吃素,少了很多尝试的机会
欢迎拍砖和补充
一餐:优点:便宜;缺点:不干净。值得一吃的:早餐豆腐脑(有的时候一餐的勺子特别短缺或特别脏,没有洗干净)中午:最南边那个窗口的麻辣粉(PS:麻辣粉最好在中午11:30之前取买,11:30之后不供应)
二餐:经济实惠的俩川菜馆,哪边的菜做得更好吃一直没有定论,北边的蛋炒米,小份才两块五,对于食量不大的人来说刚刚好。
巧滋坊:学校里经营有道的一家餐厅。环境优雅,菜品不错。菜的价格,有的特别实惠,好菜(比如肉比较多的)相对于其他同类餐厅较贵,但味道精致。经营有道在于:1,注重环境2,菜的味道,定价都很讲究,有便宜的菜,但贵的菜比其他家的同类菜都贵3注重宣传,海报精美,与其他广告拉开档次,也提升了自身餐馆的档次。海报张贴有节奏,不铺天盖地。夺人眼球却不扰人。每张海报都有侧重点,基本上三种:一个是宣传餐厅的菜实惠,多样,二是赠送饮料,三是上菜速度快。还有一次是四川地震的时候那个公益广告,老板觉悟不低!
东餐:6号和2号窗口实惠
6号窗口的特色有麻辣烫,砂锅面,饼子,一元三个的包子
2号窗口是饼夹菜,一元一个,夹的菜比较多,2号窗口的鸡蛋汤5毛钱一碗,不至于因为便宜味道太差。炝锅面,很实惠,面很多,料也足,就是不分大小碗。吃过两次,味道还行,就是面太多吃不完,男生估计正好。还吃过这的油泼面,感觉跟西安扯面那家的油泼面味道差不了多少,就是面不一样,面的口感也不一样。
西安扯面不得不提,即使价格噌噌往上涨,吃的人依然不减当年盛况,学校餐厅里得规矩的排队买饭的也只有那一家。每次看到那排队的十几个人,不得不望而却步,舍美食而择其他。
东服有家蛋糕店叫’麦心西饼’的奶杯和枣糕值得一试
西安小吃城里的素火锅宽粉
大同美食城:面滑好吃,但是贵,不实惠。
利科饭店:店名大俗,但丝毫不影响去那吃的人数,那的盖饭是特色,菜炒得出味,米也好吃,比其他家卖得贵点,但也算物有所值吧

说了这么多,其实大家吃饭都比较偏向家乡特色的,运城的可能会比较常去店名带运城的,大同的可能比较多去大同美食(这大概也是为什么大同美食卖的东西虽然好吃,却不怎么实惠但每次经过那里总会看到很多人吧)。四川的则常去到川菜馆和重庆风味的地方。

Never Sell Your Soul!

Thank you, Chancellor, and good morning. I’d like to join Chancellor Renick in welcoming all of you to the 114th commencement exercises of North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. My fellow job seekers: I am honored to be among the first to congratulate you on completing your years at North Carolina A&T. But all of you should know: as Mother’s Day gifts go, this one is going to be tough to beat in the years ahead.

The purpose of a commencement speaker is to dispense wisdom. But the older I get, the more I realize that the most important wisdom I’ve learned in life has come from my mother and my father. Before we go any further, let’s hear it one more time for your mothers and mother figures, fathers and father figures, family, and friends in the audience today.
When I first received the invitation to speak here, I was the CEO of an $80 billion Fortune 11 company with 145,000 employees in 178 countries around the world. I held that job for nearly six years. It was also a company that hired its fair share of graduates from North Carolina A&T. You could always tell who they were. For some reason, they were the ones that had stickers on their desks that read, “Beat the Eagles.”But as you may have heard, I don’t have that job anymore. After the news of my departure broke, I called the school, and asked: do you still want me to come and be your commencement speaker? Chancellor Renick put my fears to rest. He said, “Carly, if anything, you probably have more in common with these students now than you did before.” And he’s right. After all, I’ve been working on my resume. I’ve been lining up my references. I bought a new interview suit. If there are any recruiters here, I’ll be free around 11. I want to thank you for having me anyway. This is the first public appearance I’ve made since I left HP. I wanted very much to be here because this school has always been set apart by something that I’ve believed very deeply; something that takes me back to the earliest memories I have in life.

One day at church, my mother gave me a small coaster with a saying on it. During my entire childhood, I kept this saying in front of me on a small desk in my room. In fact, I can still show you that coaster today. It says: “What you are is God’s gift to you. What you make of yourself is your gift to God” Those words have had a huge impact on me to this day. What this school and I believe in very deeply is that when we think about our lives, we shouldn’t be limited by other people’s stereotypes or bigotry. Instead, we should be motivated by our own sense of possibility. We should be motivated by our own sense of accomplishment. We should be motivated by what we believe we can become. Jesse Jackson has taught us; Ronald McNair taught us; the Greensboro Four taught us; that the people who focus on possibilities achieve much more in life than people who focus on limitations.

The question for all of you today is: how will you define what you make of yourself?

To me, what you make of yourself is actually two questions. There’s the “you” that people see on the outside. And that’s how most people will judge you, because it’s all they can see ?what you become in life, whether you were made President of this, or CEO of that, the visible you.But then, there’s the invisible you, the “you” on the inside. That’s the person that only you and God can see. For 25 years, when people have asked me for career advice, what I always tell them is don’t give up what you have inside. Never sell your soul ?because no one can ever pay you back.

What I mean by not selling your soul is don’t be someone you’re not, don’t be less than you are, don’t give up what you believe, because whatever the consequences that may seem scary or bad — whatever the consequences of staying true to yourself are — they are much better than the consequences of selling your soul.

You have been tested mightily in your life to get to this moment. And all of you know much better than I d from the moment you leave this campus, you will be tested. You will be tested because you won’t fit some people’s pre-conceived notions or stereotypes of what you’re supposed to be, of who you’re supposed to be. People will have stereotypes of what you can or can’t do, of what you will or won’t do, of what you should or shouldn’t do. But they only have power over you if you let them have power over you. They can only have control if you let them have control, if you give up what’s inside.

I speak from experience. I’ve been there. I’ve been there, in admittedly vastly different ways — and in many ways, in the fears in my heart, exactly the same places. The truth is I’ve struggled to have that sense of control since the day I left college. I was afraid the day I graduated from college. I was afraid of what people would think. Afraid I couldn’t measure up. I was afraid of making the wrong choices. I was afraid of disappointing the people who had worked so hard to send me to college.

I had graduated with a degree in medieval history and philosophy. If you had a job that required knowledge of Copernicus or 12th Century European monks, I was your person. But that job market wasn’t very strong. So, I was planning to go to law school, not because it was a lifelong dream ?because I thought it was expected of me. Because I realized that I could never be the artist my mother was, so I would try to be the lawyer my father was. So, I went off to law school. For the first three months, I barely slept. I had a blinding headache every day. And I can tell you exactly which shower tile I was looking at in my parent’s bathroom on a trip home when it hit me like a lightning bolt. This is my life. I can do what I want. I have control. I walked downstairs and said, “I quit.”


I will give my parents credit in some ways. That was 1976. They could have said, “Oh well, you can get married.” Instead, they said, “We’re worried that you’ll never amount to anything.” It took me a while to prove them wrong. My first job was working for a brokerage firm. I had a title. It was not “VP.” It was “receptionist.” I answered phones, I typed, I filed. I did that for a year. And then, I went and lived in Italy, teaching English to Italian businessmen and their families. I discovered that I liked business. I liked the pragmatism of it; the pace of it. Even though it hadn’t been my goal, I became a businessperson.

I like big challenges, and the career path I chose for myself at the beginning was in one of the most male-dominated professions in America. I went to work for AT&T. It didn’t take me long to realize that there were many people there who didn’t have my best interests at heart. I began my career as a first level sales person within AT&T’s long lines department. Now, “long lines” is what we used to call the long distance business, but I used to refer to the management team at AT&T as the “42 longs” ?which was their suit size, and all those suits ?and faces ?looked the same.

I’ll never forget the first time my boss at the time introduced me to a client. With a straight face, he said “this is Carly Fiorina, our token bimbo.” I laughed, I did my best to dazzle the client, and then I went to the boss when the meeting was over and said, “You will never do that to me again.” In those early days, I was put in a program at the time called the Management Development Program. It was sort of an accelerated up-or-out program, and I was thrown into the middle of a group of all male sales managers who had been there quite a long time, and they thought it was their job to show me a thing or two. A client was coming to town and we had decided that we were getting together for lunch to introduce me to this customer who was important to one of my accounts.

Now the day before this meeting was to occur, one of my male colleagues came to me and said, “You know, Carly, I’m really sorry. I know we’ve had this planned for a long time, but this customer has a favorite restaurant here in Washington, D.C., and they really want to go to that restaurant, and we need to do what the customer wants, and so I don’t think you’ll be able to join us.””Why is that?” I asked. Well, the restaurant was called the Board Room. Now, the Board Room back then was a restaurant on Vermont Avenue in Washington, D.C., and it was a strip club. In fact, it was famous because the young women who worked there would wear these completely see-through baby doll negligees, and they would dance on top of the tables while the patrons ate lunch.The customer wanted to go there, and so my male colleagues were going there. So I thought about it for about two hours. I remember sitting in the ladies room thinking, “Oh God, what am I going to do? And finally I came back and said, “You know, I hope it won’t make you too uncomfortable, but I think I’m going to come to lunch anyway.”

Now, I have to tell you I was scared to death. So the morning arrived when I had to go to the Board Room and meet my client, and I chose my outfit carefully. I dressed in my most conservative suit. I carried a briefcase like a shield of honor. I got in a cab. When I told the taxi driver where I wanted to go he whipped around in his seat and said, “You’re kidding right?” I think he thought I was a new act. In any event, I arrived, I got out, I took a deep breath, I straightened my bow tie, and went in the door – and you have to picture this – I go into the door, there’s a long bar down one side, there’s a stage right in front of me, and my colleagues are sitting way on the other side of the room. And there’s a live act going on the stage. The only way I could get to them was to walk along that stage. I did. I looked like a complete idiot. I sat down, we had lunch. Advertisement

Now, there are two ends to that story. One is that my male colleagues never did that to me again. But the other end to the story, which I still find inspiring, is that all throughout lunch they kept trying to get those young women to dance in their negligees on top of our table — and every one of those young women came over, looked the situation over and said, “Not until the lady leaves.”

It even followed me to HP. As you may know, the legend of HP is that it began in a garage. When I took over, we launched a get-back-to-basics campaign we called “the rules of the garage.” A fellow CEO at a competitor saw that and decided to do a skit about me. In front of the entire financial analyst and media community, he had an actress come out with blond hair and long red nails and flashy clothes, and had a garage fall on her head. It made big headlines locally. It made me feel a lot like the “token bimbo” all over again.

I know all of you have your own stories. When you challenge other people’s ideas of who or how you should be, they may try to diminish and disgrace you. It can happen in small ways in hidden places, or in big ways on a world stage. You can spend a lifetime resenting the tests, angry about the slights and the injustices. Or, you can rise above it. People’s ideas and fears can make them small ?but they cannot make you small. People’s prejudices can diminish them ?but they cannot diminish you. Small-minded people can think they determine your worth. But only you can determine your worth.

At every step along the way, your soul will be tested. Every test you pass will make you stronger.Sometimes, there are consequences to not selling your soul. Sometimes, there are consequences to staying true to what you believe. And sometimes, those consequences are very difficult. But as long as you understand the consequences and accept the consequences, you are not only stronger as a result, you’re more at peace.

.Many people have asked me how I feel now that I’ve lost my job. The truth is, I’m proud of the life I’ve lived so far, and though I’ve made my share of mistakes, I have no regrets. The worst thing I could have imagined happened. I lost my job in the most public way possible, and the press had a field day with it all over the world. And guess what? I’m still here. I am at peace and my soul is intact. I could have given it away and the story would be different. But I heard the word of Scripture in my head: “What benefit will it be to you if you gain the whole world, but lose your soul?”

When people have stereotypes of what you can’t do, show them what you can do. When they have stereotypes of what you won’t do, show them what you will do. Every time you pass these tests, you learn more about yourself. Every time you resist someone else’s smaller notion of who you really are, you test your courage and your endurance. Each time you endure, and stay true to yourself, you become stronger and better.

I do not know any of you personally. But as a businessperson and a former CEO, I know that people who have learned to overcome much can achieve more than people who’ve never been tested. And I do know that this school has prepared you well. After all, North Carolina A&T graduates more African Americans with engineering degrees than any other school in the United States. It graduates more African American technology professionals than any other school. It graduates more African American women who go into careers in science, math, and technology than any other school. Your motto is right: North Carolina A&T is truly a national resource and a local treasure. And Aggie Pride is not just a slogan ?it’s a hard-earned fact!

Never sell your education short. And the fact that this school believed in you means you should never sell yourself short. What I have learned in 25 years of managing people is that everyone possesses more potential than they realize. Living life defined by your own sense of possibility, not by others notions of limitations, is the path to success.

Starting today, you are one of the most promising things America has to offer: you are an Aggie with a degree.

My hope is that you live life defined by your own sense of possibility, your own sense of worth, your own sense of your soul. Define yourself for yourself, not by how others are going to define you ?and then stick to it. Find your own internal compass. I use the term compass, because what does a compass do? When the winds are howling, and the storm raging, and the sky is so cloudy you have nothing to navigate by, a compass tells you where true North is. And I think when you are in a lonely situation, you have to rely on that compass. Who am I? What do I believe? Do I believe I am doing the right thing for the right reason in the best way that I can? Sometimes, that’s all you have. And always, it will be enough.

Most people will judge you by what they see on the outside. Only you and God will know what’s on the inside. But at the end of your life, if people ask you what your greatest accomplishment was, my guess is, it will be something that happened inside you, that no one else ever saw, something that had nothing to do with outside success, and everything to do with how you decide to live in the world.

What you are today is God’s gift to you. What you make of yourself is your gift to God. He is waiting for that gift right now. Make it something extraordinary.

Text of Steve Jobs’ Commencement Address(2005)

‘You’ve got to find what you love,’ Jobs says

This is the text of the Commencement address by Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple Computer and of Pixar Animation Studios, delivered on June 12, 2005.

I am honored to be with you today at your commencement from one of the finest universities in the world. I never graduated from college. Truth be told, this is the closest I’ve ever gotten to a college graduation. Today I want to tell you three stories from my life. That’s it. No big deal. Just three stories.

The first story is about connecting the dots.

I dropped out of Reed College after the first 6 months, but then stayed around as a drop-in for another 18 months or so before I really quit. So why did I drop out?

It started before I was born. My biological mother was a young, unwed college graduate student, and she decided to put me up for adoption. She felt very strongly that I should be adopted by college graduates, so everything was all set for me to be adopted at birth by a lawyer and his wife. Except that when I popped out they decided at the last minute that they really wanted a girl. So my parents, who were on a waiting list, got a call in the middle of the night asking: “We have an unexpected baby boy; do you want him?” They said: “Of course.” My biological mother later found out that my mother had never graduated from college and that my father had never graduated from high school. She refused to sign the final adoption papers. She only relented a few months later when my parents promised that I would someday go to college.

And 17 years later I did go to college. But I naively chose a college that was almost as expensive as Stanford, and all of my working-class parents’ savings were being spent on my college tuition. After six months, I couldn’t see the value in it. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life and no idea how college was going to help me figure it out. And here I was spending all of the money my parents had saved their entire life. So I decided to drop out and trust that it would all work out OK. It was pretty scary at the time, but looking back it was one of the best decisions I ever made. The minute I dropped out I could stop taking the required classes that didn’t interest me, and begin dropping in on the ones that looked interesting.

It wasn’t all romantic. I didn’t have a dorm room, so I slept on the floor in friends’ rooms, I returned coke bottles for the 5¢ deposits to buy food with, and I would walk the 7 miles across town every Sunday night to get one good meal a week at the Hare Krishna temple. I loved it. And much of what I stumbled into by following my curiosity and intuition turned out to be priceless later on. Let me give you one example:

Reed College at that time offered perhaps the best calligraphy instruction in the country. Throughout the campus every poster, every label on every drawer, was beautifully hand calligraphed. Because I had dropped out and didn’t have to take the normal classes, I decided to take a calligraphy class to learn how to do this. I learned about serif and san serif typefaces, about varying the amount of space between different letter combinations, about what makes great typography great. It was beautiful, historical, artistically subtle in a way that science can’t capture, and I found it fascinating.

None of this had even a hope of any practical application in my life. But ten years later, when we were designing the first Macintosh computer, it all came back to me. And we designed it all into the Mac. It was the first computer with beautiful typography. If I had never dropped in on that single course in college, the Mac would have never had multiple typefaces or proportionally spaced fonts. And since Windows just copied the Mac, its likely that no personal computer would have them. If I had never dropped out, I would have never dropped in on this calligraphy class, and personal computers might not have the wonderful typography that they do. Of course it was impossible to connect the dots looking forward when I was in college. But it was very, very clear looking backwards ten years later.

Again, you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.

My second story is about love and loss.

I was lucky — I found what I loved to do early in life. Woz and I started Apple in my parents garage when I was 20. We worked hard, and in 10 years Apple had grown from just the two of us in a garage into a $2 billion company with over 4000 employees. We had just released our finest creation — the Macintosh — a year earlier, and I had just turned 30. And then I got fired. How can you get fired from a company you started? Well, as Apple grew we hired someone who I thought was very talented to run the company with me, and for the first year or so things went well. But then our visions of the future began to diverge and eventually we had a falling out. When we did, our Board of Directors sided with him. So at 30 I was out. And very publicly out. What had been the focus of my entire adult life was gone, and it was devastating.

I really didn’t know what to do for a few months. I felt that I had let the previous generation of entrepreneurs down – that I had dropped the baton as it was being passed to me. I met with David Packard and Bob Noyce and tried to apologize for screwing up so badly. I was a very public failure, and I even thought about running away from the valley. But something slowly began to dawn on me — I still loved what I did. The turn of events at Apple had not changed that one bit. I had been rejected, but I was still in love. And so I decided to start over.

I didn’t see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life.

During the next five years, I started a company named NeXT, another company named Pixar, and fell in love with an amazing woman who would become my wife. Pixar went on to create the worlds first computer animated feature film, Toy Story, and is now the most successful animation studio in the world. In a remarkable turn of events, Apple bought NeXT, I returned to Apple, and the technology we developed at NeXT is at the heart of Apple’s current renaissance. And Laurene and I have a wonderful family together.

I’m pretty sure none of this would have happened if I hadn’t been fired from Apple. It was awful tasting medicine, but I guess the patient needed it. Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith. I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.

My third story is about death.

When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: “If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.” It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “No” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.

Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.

About a year ago I was diagnosed with cancer. I had a scan at 7:30 in the morning, and it clearly showed a tumor on my pancreas. I didn’t even know what a pancreas was. The doctors told me this was almost certainly a type of cancer that is incurable, and that I should expect to live no longer than three to six months. My doctor advised me to go home and get my affairs in order, which is doctor’s code for prepare to die. It means to try to tell your kids everything you thought you’d have the next 10 years to tell them in just a few months. It means to make sure everything is buttoned up so that it will be as easy as possible for your family. It means to say your goodbyes.

I lived with that diagnosis all day. Later that evening I had a biopsy, where they stuck an endoscope down my throat, through my stomach and into my intestines, put a needle into my pancreas and got a few cells from the tumor. I was sedated, but my wife, who was there, told me that when they viewed the cells under a microscope the doctors started crying because it turned out to be a very rare form of pancreatic cancer that is curable with surgery. I had the surgery and I’m fine now.

This was the closest I’ve been to facing death, and I hope its the closest I get for a few more decades. Having lived through it, I can now say this to you with a bit more certainty than when death was a useful but purely intellectual concept:

No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

When I was young, there was an amazing publication called The Whole Earth Catalog, which was one of the bibles of my generation. It was created by a fellow named Stewart Brand not far from here in Menlo Park, and he brought it to life with his poetic touch. This was in the late 1960’s, before personal computers and desktop publishing, so it was all made with typewriters, scissors, and polaroid cameras. It was sort of like Google in paperback form, 35 years before Google came along: it was idealistic, and overflowing with neat tools and great notions.

Stewart and his team put out several issues of The Whole Earth Catalog, and then when it had run its course, they put out a final issue. It was the mid-1970s, and I was your age. On the back cover of their final issue was a photograph of an early morning country road, the kind you might find yourself hitchhiking on if you were so adventurous. Beneath it were the words: “Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.” It was their farewell message as they signed off. Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish. And I have always wished that for myself. And now, as you graduate to begin anew, I wish that for you.

Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.

Thank you all very much.

生命是一种长期而持续的累积过程

作者:台湾清华 彭明辉老师

许多同学应该都还记得联考前夕的焦虑:差一分可能要掉好几个志愿,甚至于一生的命运从此改观!到了大四,这种焦虑可能更强烈而复杂:到底要先当兵,就业,还是先考研究所?

我就经常碰到学生充满焦虑的问我这些问题。可是,这些焦虑实在是莫须有的!生命是一种长期而持续的累积过程,绝不会因为单一的事件而毁了一个人的一生,也不会因为单一的事件而救了一个人的一生。属于我们该得的,迟早会得到;属于我们不该得的,即使侥幸巧取也不可能长久保有。如果我们看清这个事实,许多所谓人生的重大抉择就可以淡然处之,根本无需焦虑。而所谓人生的困境,也往往当下就变得无足挂齿。

我自己就是一个活生生的例子。从一进大学就决定不再念研究所,所以,大学四年的时间多半在念人文科学的东西。毕业后工作了几年,才决定要念研究所。硕士毕业后,立下决心:从此不再为文凭而念书。谁知道,世事难料,当了五年讲师后,我又被时势所迫,整装出国念博士。

出国时,一位大学同学笑我:全班最晚念博士的都要回国了,你现在才要出去?两年后我从剑桥回来,觉得人生际遇无常,莫此为甚:一个从大一就决定再也不钻营学位的人,竟然连硕士和博士都拿到了!属于我们该得的,哪样曾经少过?而人生中该得与不该得的究竟有多少,我们又何曾知晓?从此我对际遇一事不能不更加淡然。当讲师期间,有些态度较极端的学生会当面表现出他们的不屑;从剑桥回来时,却被学生当做不得了的事看待。这种表面上的大起大落,其实都是好事者之言,完全看不到事实的真相。从表面上看来,两年就拿到剑桥博士,这好像很了不起。但是,在这两年之前我已经花整整一年,将研究主题有关的论文全部看完,并找出研究方向;而之前更已花三年时间做控制方面的研究,并且在国际著名的学术期刊中发表论文。而从硕士毕业到拿博士,期间七年的时间我从不停止过研究与自修。所以,这个博士其实是累积了七年的成果,或者,只算我花在控制学门的时间,也至少有五年),根本也没什么好惊讶的。

常人不从长期而持续的累积过程来看待生命因积蓄而有的成果,老爱在表面上以断裂而孤立的事件夸大议论,因此每每在平淡无奇的事件上强做悲喜。可是对我来讲,当讲师期间被学生瞧不起,以及剑桥刚回来时被同学夸大本事,都只是表象。

事实是:我只在乎每天二十四小时点点滴滴的累积。拿硕士或博士只是特定时刻里这些成果累积的外在展示而已,人生命中真实的累积从不曾因这些事件而终止或加添。常有学生满怀忧虑的问我:

老师,我很想先当完兵,工作一两年再考研究所。这样好吗?”

很好,这样子有机会先用实务来印证学理,你念研究所时会比别人了解自己要的是什么。”

可是,我怕当完兵又工作后,会失去斗志,因此考不上研究所。”

那你就先考研究所好了。”

可是,假如我先念研究所,我怕自己又会像念大学时一样茫然,因此念的不甘不愿的。”

那你还是先去工作好了!”

可是……”

我完全可以体会到他们的焦虑,可是却无法压抑住对于这种话的感慨。其实,说穿了他所需要的就是两年研究所加两年工作,以便加深知识的深广度和获取实务经验。先工作或先升学,表面上大相迳庭,其实骨子里的差别根本可以忽略。在朝三暮四这个成语故事里,主人原本喂养猴子的橡实是早上四颗下午三颗,后来改为朝三暮四,猴子就不高兴而坚持改回到朝四暮三。其实,先工作或先升学,期间差异就有如朝三暮四与朝四暮三,原不值得计较。但是,我们经常看不到这种生命过程中长远而持续的累积,老爱将一时际遇中的小差别夸大到攸关生死的地步。

最讽刺的是:当我们面对两个可能的方案,而焦虑的不知何所抉择时,通常表示这两个方案可能一样好,或者一样坏,因而实际上选择哪个都一样,唯一的差别只是先后之序而已。而且,愈是让我们焦虑得厉害的,其实差别越小,愈不值得焦虑。反而真正有明显的好坏差别时,我们轻易的就知道该怎么做了。可是我们却经常看不到长远的将来,短视的盯著两案短期内的得失:想选甲案,就舍不得乙案的好处;想选乙案,又舍不得甲案的好处。如果看得够远,人生常则八,九十,短则五,六十年,先做哪一件事又有什么关系?甚至当完兵又工作后,再花一整年准备研究所,又有什么了不起?当然,有些人还是会忧虑说:我当完兵又工作后,会不会因为家累或记忆力衰退而比较难考上研究所?

我只能这样回答:一个人考不上研究所,只有两个可能:或者他不够聪明,或者他的确够聪明。不够聪明而考不上,那也没什么好抱怨的。假如你够聪明,还考不上研究所,那只能说你的决心不够强。假如你是决心不够强,就表示你生命中还有其他的可能性,其重要程度并不下于硕士学位,而你舍不得丢下他。既然如此,考不上研究所也无须感到遗憾。不是吗?

人生的路这么多,为什么要老斤斤计较著一个可能性?我高中最要好的朋友,一生背运:高中考两次,高一念两次,大学又考两次,甚至连机车驾照都考两次。毕业后,他告诉自己:我没有人脉,也没有学历,只能靠加倍的诚恳和努力。现在,他自己拥有一家公司,年收入数千万。

一个人在升学过程中不顺利,而在事业上顺利,这是常见的事。有才华的人,不会因为被名校拒绝而连带失去他的才华,只不过要另外找适合他表现的场所而已。反过来,一个人在升学过程中太顺利,也难免因而放不下身段去创业,而只能乖乖领薪水过活。福祸如何,谁能全面知晓?

我们又有什么好得意?又有什么好忧虑?人生的得与失,有时候怎么也说不清楚,有时候却再简单不过了:我们得到平日累积的成果,而失去我们不曾努力累积的!所以重要的不是和别人比成就,而是努力去做自己想做的。功不唐捐,最后该得到的不会少你一分,不该得到的也不会多你一分。

好像是前年的时候,我在往艺术中心的路上遇到一位高中同学。他在南加大当电机系的副教授,被清华电机聘回来开短期课程。从高中时代他就很用功,以第一志愿上台大电机后,四年都拿书卷奖,相信他在专业上的研究也已卓然有成。回想高中入学时,我们两个人的智力测验成绩分居全学年第一,第二名。可是从高一我就不曾放弃自己喜欢的文学,音乐,书法,艺术和哲学,而他却始终不曾分心,因此两个人在学术上的差距只会愈来愈远。反过来说,这十几二十年我在人文领域所获得的满足,恐怕已远非他所能理解的了。我太太问过我,如果我肯全心专注于一个研究领域,是不是至少会赶上这位同学的成就?我不这样想,两个不同性情的人,注定要走两条不同的路。不该得的东西,我们注定是得不到的,随随便便拿两个人来比,只看到他所得到的,却看不到他所失去的,这有什么意义?

有次清华电台访问我:老师你如何面对你人生中的困境?我当场愣在那里,怎么样都想不出我这一生什么时候有过困境!后来仔细回想,才发现:我不是没有过困境,而是被常人当作困境的境遇,我都当作一时的际遇,不曾在意过而已。刚服完兵役时,长子已出生却还找不到工作。我曾焦虑过,却又觉得迟早会有工作,报酬也不至于低的离谱,不曾太放在心上。念硕士期间,家计全靠太太的薪水,省吃俭用,对我而言又算不上困境。一来,精神上我过的很充实,二来我知道这一切是为了让自己有机会转行去教书(做自己想做的事)。三十一岁才要出国,而同学正要回系上任教,我很紧张(不知道剑桥要求的有多严),却不曾丧气。因为,我知道自己过去一直很努力,也有很满意的心得和成果,只不过别人看不到而已。我没有过困境,因为我从不在乎外在的得失,也不武断的和别人比高下,而只在乎自己内在真实的累积。

我没有过困境,因为我确实了解到:生命是一种长期而持续的累积过程,绝不会因为单一的事件而有剧烈的起伏。同时我也相信:属于我们该得的,迟早会得到;属于我们不该得的,即使一分也不可能加增。假如你可以持有相同的信念,那么人生于你也会是宽广而长远,没有什么了不得的困境,也没有什么好焦虑的了。

[转]算法的力量 李开复

算法的力量
2006年5月 李开复

算法是计算机科学领域最重要的基石之一,但却受到了国内一些程序员的冷落。许多学生看到一些公司在招聘时要求的编程语言五花八门,就产生了一种误解,认为 学计算机就是学各种编程语言,或者认为,学习最新的语言、技术、标准就是最好的铺路方法。其实,大家被这些公司误导了。编程语言虽然该学,但是学习计算机 算法和理论更重要,因为计算机语言和开发平台日新月异,但万变不离其宗的是那些算法和理论,例如数据结构、算法、编译原理、计算机体系结构、关系型数据库 原理等等。在“开复学生网”上,有位同学生动地把这些基础课程比拟为“内功”,把新的语言、技术、标准比拟为“外功”。整天赶时髦的人最后只懂得招式,没 有功力,是不可能成为高手的。

* 算法与我

当我在1980年转入计算机科学系时,还没有多少人的专业方向是计算机科学。有许多其他系的人嘲笑我们说:“知道为什么只有你们系要加一个 ‘科学’,而没有‘物理科学系’或‘化学科学系’吗?因为人家是真的科学,不需要画蛇添足,而你们自己心虚,生怕不‘科学’,才这样欲盖弥彰。” 其实,这点他们彻底弄错了。真正学懂计算机的人(不只是“编程匠”)都对数学有相当的造诣,既能用科学家的严谨思维来求证,也能用工程师的务实手段来解决 问题——而这种思维和手段的最佳演绎就是“算法”。

记得我读博时写的Othello对弈软件获得了世界冠军。当时,得第二名的人认为我是靠侥幸才打赢他,不服气地问我的程序平均每秒能搜索多少步棋,当他发 现我的软件在搜索效率上比他快60多倍时,才彻底服输。为什么在同样的机器上,我可以多做60倍的工作呢?这是因为我用了一个最新的算法,能够把一个指数 函数转换成四个近似的表,只要用常数时间就可得到近似的答案。在这个例子中,是否用对算法才是能否赢得世界冠军的关键。

还记得1988年贝尔实验室副总裁亲自来访问我的学校,目的就是为了想了解为什么他们的语音识别系统比我开发的慢几十倍,而且,在扩大至大词汇系统后,速 度差异更有几百倍之多。他们虽然买了几台超级计算机,勉强让系统跑了起来,但这么贵的计算资源让他们的产品部门很反感,因为“昂贵”的技术是没有应用前景 的。在与他们探讨的过程中,我惊讶地发现一个O(n*m)的动态规划(dynamic programming)居然被他们做成了O(n*n*m)。更惊讶的是,他们还为此发表了不少文章,甚至为自己的算法起了一个很特别的名字,并将算法提 名到一个科学会议里,希望能得到大奖。当时,贝尔实验室的研究员当然绝顶聪明,但他们全都是学数学、物理或电机出身,从未学过计算机科学或算法,才犯了这 么基本的错误。我想那些人以后再也不会嘲笑学计算机科学的人了吧!

* 网络时代的算法

有人也许会说:“今天计算机这么快,算法还重要吗?”其实永远不会有太快的计算机,因为我们总会想出新的应用。虽然在摩尔定律的作用下,计算机的计算能力 每年都在飞快增长,价格也在不断下降。可我们不要忘记,需要处理的信息量更是呈指数级的增长。现在每人每天都会创造出大量数据(照片,视频,语音,文本等 等)。日益先进的记录和存储手段使我们每个人的信息量都在爆炸式的增长。互联网的信息流量和日志容量也在飞快增长。在科学研究方面,随着研究手段的进步, 数据量更是达到了前所未有的程度。无论是三维图形、海量数据处理、机器学习、语音识别,都需要极大的计算量。在网络时代,越来越多的挑战需要靠卓越的算法 来解决。

再举另一个网络时代的例子。在互联网和手机搜索上,如果要找附近的咖啡店,那么搜索引擎该怎么处理这个请求呢?

最简单的办法就是把整个城市的咖啡馆都找出来,然后计算出它们的所在位置与你之间的距离,再进行排序,然后返回最近的结果。但该如何计算距离呢?图论里有不少算法可以解决这个问题。

这么做也许是最直观的,但绝对不是最迅速的。如果一个城市只有为数不多的咖啡馆,那这么做应该没什么问题,反正计算量不大。但如果一个城市里有很多咖啡馆,又有很多用户都需要类似的搜索,那么服务器所承受的压力就大多了。在这种情况下,我们该怎样优化算法呢?

首先,我们可以把整个城市的咖啡馆做一次“预处理”。比如,把一个城市分成若干个“格子(grid)”,然后根据用户所在的位置把他放到某一个格子里,只对格子里的咖啡馆进行距离排序。

问题又来了,如果格子大小一样,那么绝大多数结果都可能出现在市中心的一个格子里,而郊区的格子里只有极少的结果。在这种情况下,我们应该把市中心多分出 几个格子。更进一步,格子应该是一个“树结构”,最顶层是一个大格——整个城市,然后逐层下降,格子越来越小,这样有利于用户进行精确搜索 ——如果在最底层的格子里搜索结果不多,用户可以逐级上升,放大搜索范围。

上述算法对咖啡馆的例子很实用,但是它具有通用性吗?答案是否定的。把咖啡馆抽象一下,它是一个点”,如果要搜索一个“面”该怎么办呢?比如,用户想去一 个水库玩,而一个水库有好几个入口,那么哪一个离用户最近呢?这个时候,上述“树结构”就要改成“r-tree”,因为树中间的每一个节点都是一个范围, 一个有边界的范围(参考:http://www.cs.umd.edu/~hjs/rtrees/index.html)。

通过这个小例子,我们看到,应用程序的要求千变万化,很多时候需要把一个复杂的问题分解成若干简单的小问题,然后再选用合适的算法和数据结构。

上面的例子在Google里就要算是小case了!每天Google的网站要处理十亿个以上的搜索,GMail要储存几千万用户的2G邮箱,Google Earth要让数十万用户同时在整个地球上遨游,并将合适的图片经过互联网提交给每个用户。如果没有好的算法,这些应用都无法成为现实。

在这些的应用中,哪怕是最基本的问题都会给传统的计算带来很大的挑战。例如,每天都有十亿以上的用户访问Google的网站,使用 Google的服务,也产生很多很多的日志(Log)。因为Log每分每秒都在飞速增加,我们必须有聪明的办法来进行处理。我曾经在面试中问过关于如何对 log进行一些分析处理的问题,有很多面试者的回答虽然在逻辑上正确,但在实际应用中是几乎不可行的。按照他们的算法,即便用上几万台机器,我们的处理速 度都跟不上数据产生的速度。

那么Google是如何解决这些问题的呢?

首先,在网络时代,就算有最好的算法,也要能在并行计算的环境下执行。在Google的数据中心,我们使用的是超大的并行计算机。但传统的并行算法运行 时,效率会在增加机器数量后迅速降低,也就是说,十台机器如果有五倍的效果,增加到一千台时也许就只有几十倍的效果。这种事倍功半的代价是没有哪家公司可 以负担得起的。而且,在许多并行算法中,只要一个结点犯错误,所有计算都会前功尽弃。

那么Google是如何开发出既有效率又能容错的并行计算的呢?

Google最资深的计算机科学家Jeff Dean认识到, Google 所需的绝大部分数据处理都可以归结为一个简单的并行算法:Map and Reduce(http://labs.google.com/papers/mapreduce.html)。这个算法能够在很多种计算中达到相当高的 效率,而且是可扩展的(也就是说,一千台机器就算不能达到一千倍的效果,至少也可以达到几百倍的效果)。Map and Reduce的另外一大特色是它可以利用大批廉价的机器组成功能强大的server farm。最后,它的容错性能异常出色,就算一个server farm里面的机器down掉一半,整个farm依然能够运行。正是因为这个天才的认识,才有了Map and Reduce算法。借助该算法,Google几乎能无限地增加计算量,与日新月异的互联网应用一同成长。

* 算法并不局限于计算机和网络

举一个计算机领域外的例子:在高能物理研究方面,很多实验每秒钟都产生几个TB的数据量。但因为处理能力和存储能力的不足,科学家不得不把绝大部分未经处 理的数据丢弃掉。可大家要知道,新元素的信息很有可能就藏在我们来不及处理的数据里面。同样的,在其他任何领域里,算法都可以改变人类的生活。例如人类基 因的研究,就可能因为算法而发明新的医疗方式。在国家安全领域,有效的算法可能避免下一个911的发生。在气象方面,算法可以更好地预测未来天灾的发生, 以拯救生命。

所以,如果你把计算机的发展放到应用和数据飞速增长的大环境下,你一定会发现,算法的重要性不是在日益减小,而是在日益加强。

* 给程序员的七个建议

(1)练内功。不要只花功夫学习各种流行的编程语言和工具,以及某些公司招聘广告上要求的科目。要把数据结构、算法、数据库、操作系统原理、计算机体系结 构、计算机网络,离散数学等基础课程学好。大家不妨试试高德纳所著The Art of Computer Programming里的题目,如果你能够解决其中的大部分题目,就说明你在算法方面有一定的功力了。

(2)多实战。通过编程的实战积累经验、巩固知识。很多中国大学毕业生缺乏编程和调试经验;学习C语言,考试过关就算学会了;课题项目中,只要程序能够编 译,运行,并且输入输出满足要求就算了事。这些做法是不行的。写程序的时候,大家必须多想想如何把程序写得更加精炼、高效、高质量。建议大家争取在大学四 年中积累编写十万行代码的经验。我们必须明白的是:好程序员是写出来的,不是学出来的。

(3)求实干。不要轻视任何实际工作,比如一些看似简单的编码或测试。要不懈追求对细节一丝不苟的实干作风与敬业精神。我发现不少程序员对于知识的掌握很 肤浅,不求甚解,没有好奇心,不会刨根问底。比如,学会了C++,是否了解一个对象在编译后,在汇编代码中是如何被初始化的?这个对象的各个成员在内存中 是如何存放的?当一个成员函数被调用时,编译器在汇编代码中加入了哪些额外的动作?虚函数的调用是如何实现的? 这些东西恐怕在编程语言或编译原理中都没有详细提到,只有通过踏实的实干才能真正掌握。

(4)重视数学学习。数学是思维的体操,数学无处不在。学计算机至少要学习离散数学、概率论、布尔代数、集合论和数理逻辑。这些知识并不难,但是对你未来 的工作帮助会很大。 尤其当你对一些“数学密集型”的领域如视频、图像处理等有兴趣时,这些知识将成为你手中的利器。

(5)培养团队精神,学会与人合作。今天的软件工程早已经不是一个人可以单独操作的,而必须靠团队合作才能成功。不懂得合作的人是不能成大器的。大家要多去寻找可以与人一起做项目的机会。

(6)激励创新意识,培养好奇心,不要死记硬背。没有掌握某种算法技术的根本原理,就不会有应变和创新的能力。想成为一位好程序员(其实从事任何一个行业 都是如此),重要的是要养成钻研,好奇,创新,动手,合作的优秀习惯,不满足于填鸭,不满足于考试交差,不满足于表象。这不是学几门课能够一蹴而就的。

(7)有策略地“打工”。在不影响学业的前提下,寻找真正有意义的暑期工作或兼职。去找一个重视技术的公司,在一个好的“老板”指导下完成真正会被用户使用的程序。

不要急于去一个要你做“头”而独挡一面的地方,因为向别人学习才是你的目的。找工作也是一样,不要只看待遇和职衔,要挑一个你能够学习的环境,一个愿意培养员工的企业,一个重视你的专业的公司。最后,还要挑一个好老板。

希望大家都能把握机会,养成好的学习习惯,把算法学精学透;希望大家都能有一个美好的未来!

齐舞街头专场演出

从他们把海报打出来,就一场期待这场演出。

这场演出已经迟到三年了,我刚来的时候,他们正筹备着专场演出,后来在排练的过程中,管理层有了分歧,专场没搞成,挺遗憾的。齐舞街头也因为这场分歧大伤元气。一个团队,有了想法就应该公开说出来,私底下搞些小活动于公于私都没有好处。交流很重要。

今天晚上专场演出盛大开演,马马虎虎吧。能感到他们做演出的诚心。整场演出里,那些专业的嘉宾龙舞元素就不做评论了。幽灵组合很赞,梁昊带出来的。大一的时候跟他有过接触,人不错,舞也跳得好。

祝贺他们达成他们的愿望!实现一个愿望,达成一个目标是一件很不容易的事情!

国庆记事

今年的国庆很热闹,迷笛,摩登天空音乐节齐齐登场。迷笛来得很不容易,波折不断,跌宕起伏,相当刺激。
只是今年对北京相当反感…闹闹腾腾…

于是在学校做起了御宅族,每天早上起床,上网,或者去自习室看会儿书。下午去瑜珈馆练瑜珈。晚上继续守在电脑前。
在电脑上配置了LAMP本地服务器,删删装装,整了好多次,耗时两天才基本配好。看国外的文档配置好的,看来还是国外的强人多阿,而且还发现有些东西,国外跟国内的配置方法不太一样。so,翻译之,更新到了ubuntu wiki上。

瑜珈,貌似只有连着去练效果才好。又恢复了以前练瑜珈的时候的状态。
一直想做个网站,个人博客或是其他什么的。空间还有域名,都成问题。好的空间很难找,貌似网上对那些空间提供商的怨言很多,而且提供的空间也有很多不合理的地方。最后在淘宝找到了一个代理美国dreamhost空间的。服务态度不错,问题解决的及时。价格还可以接受。先买一个月试试,顺利的话,续费一年。
自己买空间做实验的确锻炼人,发现自己的不足,比如shell命令,LFTP的使用等等,增加了很多常识性的东西,对服务器有了更感性的认识。

国庆假期最后一天下午,接到了意外惊喜短信,来自好久没联系的小白同志。太原理工大学有一个晚会,大腕是宋祖英和黑鸭子演唱组。票价150呢。这样的机会当然不会错过啦,带上同住的女生一起去看了。原来小白在黄河电视台工作,这才是适合她的工作呀!在学校里就觉得她一定能在这方面有所成就的。希望她能在这个方面有所发展!

那个晚会是第六届舞蹈荷花奖校园舞蹈闭幕式及颁奖晚会,舞蹈界的大腕来了好多,就是我不认识。

对于舞蹈,认识一向很肤浅。

最惊喜的是,主持人竟然有鲁豫大姐,一上来就是绝对的主角啊!

这晚会,真是令我等没见过世面的人开尽了眼界!

十一假期过得简单又充实,一切都在向着好的方向发展!
