Parallel Experiments 🌠 changed group name to «Parallel Experiments 🌠»
之前的频道名是个 placeholder,现在定下来的正式名是想要致敬 Serial Experiments Lain。

“All too often, we assume automated systems must be complex, and imposing. We take the damage it can do to cultures and peoples for granted, as a necessary evil for better efficiency.”

本科混迹实验室的时候就觉得充斥于论文中的 academese 非常影响可读性,很高兴能看到这种「讲人话」的尝试。

P.S. Steven Pinker 也讨论过这个话题:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OV5J6BfToSw
很多都有同感,尤其是关于文档的部分。参加工作以前我也过分看重文档的重要性,后来才意识到维护不过时的文档的成本是很高的,self-documenting code 和 tests as documentation 更为重要。

十几岁的时候,每次跟年长的人争执不下,我总是很笃定地相信世界终究是属于我们年轻人的,因为年长的人总会先于我们死去。而现在的自己已经不是最年轻的一代了,面对「年轻人」中间那些在我看来非常危险的理念时,再也无法用同样的理由来说服自己是正确的。为此我感到恐惧。这也是 quarter life crisis 的一种表现形式吧。
Years and years 看到第五集,忍不住想推荐一下了。剧中描述的很多情景或许已经离成为现实不远了。
Google 的很多产品都给人一种过度 engineered 的感觉,Photos 和 Drive 之间的照片同步就是一个很典型的例子。即使是作为工程师的我也很难完全掌握同步的规则,更不要说普通用户了。To C 的产品绝不应该给用户太多的认知负担。

现在这个改动算是往正确的方向迈出了一步,可是看这个帮助页面,依然 confusing as hell 😶

近期学到的一些频道使用小技巧:

1. 在频道的分享链接中加入 /s 即可预览频道内容。比如 https://t.me/LinghaoCh -> https://t.me/s/LinghaoCh。

2. 频道设置中可以 link 讨论群,之后底部 mute/unmute 按钮右边会多出一个指向群聊的 discuss 按钮。

3. 将 @discussbot 拉入频道之后,所有新发布的消息就会自动带上评论链接。
“The most profound technologies are those that disappear. They weave themselves into the fabric of everyday life until they are indistinguishable from it…Silicon-based information technology, in contrast, is far from having become part of the environment… The arcane aura that surrounds personal computersis not just a “user interface” problem… Such machines cannot truly make computing an integral, invisible part of the way people live their lives. Therefore we are trying to conceive a new way of thinking about computers in the world, one that takes into account the natural human environment and allows the computers themselves to vanish into the background.”
