《一霎一花》 同时给了我认真活下去的勇气和自杀念头的漫画
如临深渊一次绝非坏事 但要我推荐给不特定人群的话 我果然还是会犹豫一下(笑)
"It will generally be found that those who know what it is to have been in need and destitution are very much less afraid of it, and consequently more inclined to extravagance, than those who know poverty only by hearsay. People who have been born and bred in good circumstances are as a rule much more careful about the future, more economical, in fact, than those who, by a piece of good luck, have suddenly passed from poverty to wealth. This looks as if poverty were not really such a very wretched thing as it appears from a distance. The true reason, however, is rather the fact that the man who has been born into a position of wealth comes to look upon it as something without which he could no more live than he could live without air; he guards it as he does his very life; and so he is generally a lover of order, prudent and economical. But the man who has been born into a poor position looks upon it as the natural one, and if by any chance he comes in for a fortune, he regards it as a superfluity, something to be enjoyed or wasted, because, if it comes to an end, he can get on just as well as before, with one anxiety the less; or, as Shakespeare says in Henry VI.,[1] …. the adage must be verified That beggars mounted run their horse to death."

Delicatus ille est adhuc cui patria dulcis est; fortis autem iam, cui omne solum patria est; perfectus vero, cui mundus totus exilium est.
Hugo of St. Victor (1096-1141)

The man who finds his homeland sweet is still a tender beginner; he to whom every soil is as his native one is already strong; but he is perfect to whom the entire world is as a foreign land.
quoted by Edward Said in Orientalism

今日shower thoughts: 主动规避推荐和订阅,我做错了吗? 我有幸经历了互联网是超链接而非封闭应用的年代。那个年代的遗产(道德问题暂且不谈)比如PT、贴吧、IRC,让我反过来对“新互联网”的应用跳转、隐私抓取、订阅垄断、推荐算法造成的回音室等等元素相当厌恶。恨屋及乌,我成功地规避了多数常用网站的推荐功能,也几乎没有被任何一家的订阅束缚住;目前执行的隐私规范应该勉强能让自己的用户画像接近“缺乏特征的”平均。我内心其实是有点为此骄傲的。 但是最近几件独立的小事开始让我重新考虑。简单地说,我可能正在…
逐渐理清了一件事情:
我以前主动规避/拒绝订阅的行为多半是出于本能。基于本能的决定一般不需要什么理由,执行的时候会觉得特别理所应当。这个阶段还没有太脱离动物性。
这之后才开始出现理性的归因:保护隐私,节约开支,打破茧房,每一个都是像样的理由,但大多都止步于我自己。什么是“止步于我自己”?眼光集中在了特定个人、特定地点、特定时代。缺少泛化让我的很多思考的价值都打了折扣,把我限制在一个“碰巧知道很多事情的书呆子”的程度。诚然,聚焦具体的人让我更善良更有同理心更细致,但占着这么好的天时地利的人目光过于短浅多少是有些不幸了。
意识到自己的浅薄之后,才开始拾起一些一直躺在眼前的东西。回到现代互联网问题,目前这种打着innovation旗号的入侵行为,历史上是第一次吗?至少美国历史给出了否定的答案。汽车和早期互联网成为必需品的历程今天似乎又在重演:技术革新(消费主义)-游说政府(垄断)-金融化。通过建立路径依赖,楼下的汽车和兜里的手机才成为了必需品。
那现在呢?我其实也不太确定接下来做点啥。我知道有不少事情在我这里都是零碎的点,也许可以做一些研究把他们串起来。订阅/推荐方面的研究也还有很多可做。又或者明天我就想一出是一出了。但是至少今天可以开心一下:短暂地摆脱了僵尸状态,动了一些脑子。
