最近在想的问题:《Training Day》

Comments Off on 最近在想的问题:《Training Day》

《Training Day》自然是一部电影的名字。我推荐给所有的人。

我比较喜欢看电影。或许这是我唯一的长期的娱乐了。每次看电影,我都希望自己能够从里面学到一些东西。我通常会假设我自己也处在电影描述的情况下,然后思考我会如何处理,我应该如何处理。对于我,这部电影提出的问题就是:如何保护自己,怎样把握在什么情况下相信陌生人这个度?

这部电影已经出来两年了,我前两个月才看DVD--也就是说,我思考我应该相信谁,我怎样才能相信陌生人的问题已经两个月了,但是我始终没有找到答案。相反的,我倒是通过电影了解到有很多我以为可以信任的人原来不是可以信任的。或者说,它坚定了我原来的一个想法:信任是earned,而不是我给予的。或者说,我不能给予任何人我的信任,他需要做一些事情去赢得我的信任。真正的朋友都是建立在长期交换信任的基础之上的。所谓的白发如新,倾盖如故更多的是指思想上的交流而不是实际上的生活。

其实,关于这个问题,在看这部电影之前我已经想了很久,不过是从另外一个角度:如何交友:因为所有的朋友都是从陌生人开始的,如果相信陌生人,在什么程度上给予对方多少的信任度,同时也是如何和朋友相处,如何交往,如何信任朋友的问题。我看到很多因为轻信初识而上当的例子,我自己也上过不少当。而这部电影,不过是将这个问题推向一个极端:如果你给予不应该的人错误的信任,其后果也许就是死!!现实生活里也许这种例子并非很多,然而并非不存在。

我还在继续思考。这是我的习惯。我是一个愚笨的人。这类问题通常会让我花上几个月,甚至几年的时间。例如上次想的关于刹车与速度的问题,我想了六个月。而关于曼藤的生长规律的问题,我想了一年。。。

思考是一种乐趣。我很享受

OLPC : if you never heard of this… shame on you

OLPC = one laptop per child.

The design of this laptop is very unique. And it should arrive on market about end of this year. The price is close to $175.

I want to have one. Plus, the operating system of this laptop is designed by Red Hat.

Every child need one laptop, so we don’t left them behind. This is humanity we must have. It is for our child, our future.

Open Source World

Comments Off on Open Source World

Here is a link to a blog: "Interview with Linus Torvalds"

What I like the most is the following. And I believe open source is the future…

"I compare it (Linux developing) with science and witchcraft (or alchemy). Science may
take a few hundred years to figure out how the world works, but it
does
actually get there, exactly because people can build on each others
knowledge, and it evolves over time. In contrast, witchcraft/alchemy
may be about smart people, but the knowledge body never “accumulates”
anywhere. It might be passed down to an apprentice, but the hiding of
information basically means that it can never really become any better
than what a single person/company can understand.

And that’s exactly the same issue with open source vs proprietary
products. The proprietary people can design something that is smart,
but it eventually becomes too complicated for a single entity (even a
large company) to really understand and drive, and the company politics
and the goals of that company will always limit it.

In contrast, open source works well in a complex
environment. Maybe nobody at all understands the big picture, but
evolution doesn’t require global understanding, it just requires small
local improvements and a open market (”survival of the fittest”)."

有朋自远方来

有朋自远方来。

昨天晚上打牌,好久没有这么热闹兴奋了。

当你回头想的时候,其实过去所有的艰难的时候,愚蠢的行动,幼稚可笑的行为,外加胡闹才是不会忘记的。

如果我们从拉没有浪费过时间,走过弯路,过过穷日子,我会觉得是一生的遗憾

人最宝贵的东西是生活,生活对人来说只有一次,因此,人的一生应当这样度过:当一个人回首往事时,我悔恨如果我没有虚度年华,我羞愧如果我没有碌碌无为;这样,在临死的时候 ,能够说对朋友,老婆和小孩说,我把整个生命和全部精力都献给了人生最宝贵的事业,为自己过自己的生活而活。

如果可以重新来过,我还是会选择在有精力的时候和他们胡闹。

1。吃不是很重要的事
要吃的少吃的健康,大鱼大肉的是给笨蛋们预备的。

2。钱是挣不完的
富贵有命,谋事在人,成事在天。没钱的老没钱,有钱的老有钱。够花就得。

3。有的朋友没有更好
见面就谈自己那点儿屁事儿的不是朋友,这种人过两天就会拉你进老鼠会。靠,见过钱吗,老子有多衬您知道吗?

4。活得简单才叫活的潇洒
成天东忙西转的主儿基本上都是属马的。尽给别人忙了,自己啥也没有,什么也不是。

5。孤独是成功者给自己开的药方
成功的人喜欢自己呆着,琢磨下一步干啥。喜欢扎堆儿的主儿没什么大出息。

6。钱不是什么好东西
光有钱没文化跟要饭花子拣到个钢蹦儿没什么区别。

7。车还是德国造的好
小日本就一混混,老美整个一扯蛋。

8。有点儿傻的美女叫真美女
这种要么年纪小,要么见过世面,处惊不变。大惊小怪的DRAMA QUEEN心眼儿忒多,不实在。

9。啤酒是真不能多喝
有种就喝白的,有钱就喝红的,没种没钱才喝啤的。就别再提那啤酒桶肚了。

10。人真会死的
老师走了,同学走了,朋友走了,全都会走的。知足吧,别争了,没病没灾还活着就不易啊。

how to do a sales — 偷来的知识

1 Comment

刚刚和公司的SALESMAN聊了5分钟。感觉到学到了很多。

Sales is not about sales. It never does. It is just about people. It is about help people to solve their problem.
You don’t go to people and tell them what you have. You talk to them, listen to them, discuss with them, when they come to tell you what’s their probolem, you may or may not have a solution. But you can give your advice. It might be the stuff you have for sell, or you might not have anything for them. But at least you keep communicatiing with them. And such channel might lead to a sales on his/her connection.
In a simple word: sales is not about what you have, but what your customer need.

You must follow up. You have to keep trying. You might get hundred of no at first place. But if you keep trying, you will get what your deserved. The average success rate is always remains low. You make 100 or even 1000 calls, and you might get one deal. But if you tried 10 times more than other salesman, you will have 10 times more sales.

So, sales is simple.

And I like this guy.

July 4 烟花表演

Comments Off on July 4 烟花表演

不知道从什么时候开始失去了亲手点燃爆竹的勇气。但是对于看烟花,始终是期待的。

Foster City 的烟花应该是不错的。很热闹,虽然时间很短。

有些烟花从离开地面开始就一路开始耀眼,在万众瞩目之中上升到极高处,然后在一声巨响中迸发。光彩夺目,声势惊人,美艳不可一世。有些无声无息,也没有爆炸声,也并非夺人心魄,然而自由一番风采。

我喜欢那种三年不鸣,一鸣惊人的烟花。要么沉默,要么一次过爆发出所有的能量。

说远了。

我喜欢看烟花。只是单纯的喜欢而已。
