嗯,好久没写东西,还是老规矩,风马牛,他们啊,不相及。

最近有一个新闻,http://www.weibo.com/1615743184/yyCD2CGhQ 说是公车上面一个小伙子没给抱小孩的女士让座,后来被女士的老公给打得满脸流血,眼镜也断了。

网上说什么的都有,有的说小伙子不对,坐在老弱病残孕位置上,司机播了几次提醒让座还无动于衷,该打。有的说不该打,有的说后来发现小伙子是残疾人。总之,那叫一个乱。

我是这么看,就这个事情本身来说,小伙子是否让座,是一个道德问题,而打人,是一个法律问题。用暴力来作为道德的回复,是用一个大错来解决小错。

不过这里有个更大的问题,就是谁来使用暴力。这个事情里面,打人的人随意使用了暴力,还有人叫好。如果道德问题可以用不加限制的暴力去解决(况且这个是否是道德问题还不一定,这个小伙子或许是病了,累了或者残疾),那么打人的人,是否也可以被现场的某位大侠给就地正法了呢?

我们历代宣扬替天行道的大侠,但是,大侠们在快意恩仇的解决了一个小问题的时候,却创造了一个大问题:缺乏一个社会公认的准则。我看你不顺眼,我就替天行道给你大耳刮子,那别人还看你不顺眼呢,大侠就是小尼姑滑腻腻的脸,和尚当得,我就当不得?

我们天朝其实好多事儿,都是用了大代价来“解决”小问题。比如这个让座,本来是个道德问题,非要升级到暴力打人。再比如小贩和市容,本来是个脏点乱点的事儿,非要组建一只连菲律宾都害怕的城管准军事组织,把小贩的生路断了。又比如拆迁,本来是钱的事情,你不把人逼到绝路,人家没事喜欢跟煤气罐一起在房顶上面睡啊?

谁都不是傻子,谁都知道这后面是利益,为了一个座位,为了自己发泄,为了能升官,吃空饷,勾结建筑商,就不惜把事情升级,用更大的错误来掩盖小问题。古人息事宁人这四个字都忘记了,去树上找河蟹么?

刚才发现译言打不开,就跑去看东西,结果发现《雾谷飞鸿》这个博客在东西上面发的几个帖子。点到原文一看,原来是美国国务院的中文博客。美国衙门给中国人写博客?好玩好玩,让我研究研究。

先从技术层面入手:

本着在国内菜场练就的怀疑一切的精神,我先看了网址,嗯,是america.gov。Dot GOV可不是稻糠木,不能随便注册的,那么这个博客的真实性就提高了不少。数了数帖子,差不多有220篇左右。最早一篇是2009年12月16号写的,不过直到2009年12月28号才正式命名为《雾谷飞鸿》,当然现在首页上面还有另外一个名字“《美国参考》博客”。

这个博客貌似知道的人不多,起码搜狐的云彩里面没有这个名字,看了博客后面的留言,数量也很少 - 要知道这个Page Rank为6的博客的留言系统连最简单的captcha都没有,居然也只有几个广告留言而已;而且它上面的确有广告留言,说明后台审查也不是那么严格。

再看内容和作者:

文笔不错,可以看出是从小在中国长大的人写的,作者的名字也是典型的中国名字,当然也有几篇是在中国留学的实习生写的,比如这篇。内容多半是对美国生活的介绍,以及美国政策的解读,有些文章是翻译的英文文章。

最后说说这个博客的效果:

怎么说呢,我觉得,还是太文了一点,太正式了一点。我反正看过以后,能很明显的感觉到里面的任务和宣传的味道。关于social network作为客户管理的渠道的效果评估文章已经很多了,雾谷飞鸿应该算是公司博客一类,属于效果中等的交流方式。我个人看,博客的优势在于是博主个人情感的流露,读者(曾经)相信自己是和一个活人在交流,而不是和一个有各种规定的公司在交流。而雾谷飞鸿的文章,显然不属于这种类型。之前谷歌的黑板报干过类似的事情,被很多曾经是google忠实用户的读者诟病。当年骂黑板报我记得有两个热点,一个是说他们炫耀在美国的生活,一个是说他们宣扬google的企业文化。读者对这两点非常的不满。

说到读者,我相信雾谷飞鸿这么有文化有品位的名字,读者群应该是中国的知识分子,特别是喜欢在紫色的沙尘暴里面听Baolin HOU,喝加salt的doujiang的那一群,他们对美国的了解,想必很多。而中国普通人对美国的关心,可能更多的来自新闻联播的最后10分钟。

先说一个小时候的思维试验。当时是看了一个故事,多半是童话,很老套的,说某个人遇到神仙,然后神仙告诉他马上要遇到的事情,后来神仙的预言都实现了。我当时想,那么既然神仙告诉了他要发生的事情,他去避开不就结了?那样预言不就永远不能成真?

说起这个事情,其实是想说,那些关于未来技术发展的预言,多半是人们按照当时的情况进行线性的推理,但是这些推理是众人都认可的,也就是说,大家都会把这些预言和推测当做是必然发生的事情,来进行未来的规划,那么预言对人行为的影响,就会改变社会发展的方向,使得线性推理的前提条件失效。

比如当年PC出来的时候,大家都说,这个东西好,PC会成为热点,于是很多厂商去生产PC硬件,因为PC硬件当时还很少。而苹果则注重于PC的易用性,而不是硬件本身。据说Steve Jobs当年闯进Mac的设计会议,把一本电话本扔在桌子上,让工程师们“设计一台这么大的计算机”。如果这个故事是真的,那么说明Steve Jobs最关心的,是个人计算机怎么才能进入家庭。

微软在这个事情上面走的更远,连硬件都很少涉及,专注于软件,特别是操作系统。因为用户最终接触的,是界面,而不是那些CPU和内存硬盘。虽然当年硬件发展的很快,很多公司在硅谷赚钱,但是微软独自缩在Redmond造办公楼,专注于软件,因为硬件的事情自然有人去操心,大家都知道硬件赚钱,自然有人去造众多的硬件,要操作这些硬件,只能通过微软的界面。而那个天才的对手Steve,正在好莱坞折腾动画片呢。

互联网的故事大家都比较熟悉了,大家当年都说网站赚钱 - 很简单,任何一个网站都能面对全世界的用户,于是大家都去造网站。这个时候瓶颈就不是网站了,是服务:给网站的hosting服务,给用户的服务,等等。于是SUN卖服务器发财了,intel卖PC也赚钱了,amazon靠着给用户的最佳服务也活过来了,google因为信息过载,也过得很好。

现在mobile互联网很热,那么那些炒的很热的概念,也会对我们的推理前提,产生影响。

早上起来,看到信箱里躺着建硕的来信“创业公司需要孵化吗?”。如果不是老婆孩子还在熟睡,我会笑出声来的,同样会让人难堪的尖锐问题,建硕总是有办法问的很得体。

建硕把企业比喻成野兽,我也用过同样的比喻。在我看来,一个初创企业的原动力之一,是创始人的意志。如果创始人能够推动企业不断的前进,那么成功的几率就大一些;如果创始人失去了这种动力,那么企业就失去了动力。从某种意义上说,初创企业其实是创始人制造的某种工具,用来执行创始人的意志。这种工具在开始的时候,因为各种限制,只能很简单,简单到类似一双筷子,以后或许会变得复杂,但是灵魂人物不能缺。

startup能成功,需要有和其他企业不同的地方,需要非常的不同,才有可能脱颖而出。这是一种气质,一种被自己的想法兴奋,有点狂热的感觉。

在国内工作的时候,我和同事讨论《只有偏执狂才能生存》这本书,当时我们的人事经理说:我觉得偏执狂这个词翻译的不好,应该叫《惶者生存》。我们几个小兵事后嘀咕了一下,觉得还是更喜欢偏执狂这个词,主要是感觉更好一点,也说不出为什么。现在回想起来,惶者似乎太文雅了,缺乏那种彪悍的感觉。

另外提一句,techstars似乎是另外一个incubator, 但是他们做事略有不同。有时候,细微的差别是很重要的。

下午给我做的学区查询网站

http://www.schooldistrictfinder.com/

提交了Adsense申请,刚才发现被拒绝了。理由是“Under construction”。这个事情有点搞笑,因为我的这个网站已经运行了两年多了,很多朋友都用过,觉得不错。我还收到过完全不认识的印度朋友和俄国朋友的感谢信,希望我能继续优化这个站。

我基本上能理解为什么Adsense不批准申请,因为这个站是google map的meshup,从爬虫的眼里看去,基本上就只有一页,后台的那全美一万四千个学区,数十万学校和更多的优化信息,都是需要查询才知道的,而且是用ajax来获取的,这些爬虫都无法知晓。所以这个站的pagerank也不高,因为就这一页,对爬虫太不友好了。

拒信里面也提到,网站需要有很多链接和内容,才能被看做是基本完成。我虽然服气,但是不得不暗自猜想:他们看来是没有真人来用这个站,就是跑了一段程序,算了算页面和链接,就直接拒了。

那好吧,反正有数据,产生几十万个页面,也就是一段程序的事儿。不过,网站是否有用,程序还是不知道,需要人来用才行。

经常看到两种对立的观点,一种说:互联网上面内容很多,用户有太多的选择,所以内容不重要,被免费复制是好事情,因为被免费复制,或者说被盗版,其实就是被传播。

另外一种说,不对,内容数量多,但是大多数都是垃圾,优质的内容少之又少。优质的内容和垃圾在盗版面前一样不值钱,而产生优质内容的成本,远远高于那些垃圾。于是最后剩下的,都是垃圾。

这个事情再加上商业模式,就更好玩了。因为目前对付盗版的商业模式很单一:就是广告。内容被免费的大量复制,里面携带的广告信息也被大量传播。于是在盗版铺天盖地的地方,广告也铺天盖地。无论是贺岁片,还是春晚,都充斥着嵌入广告。

我已经很久没有去起点看那些玄幻小说了,记得当年写玄幻的人,动辄就是一天几万字,内容无非是,兽族又发动了几百万士兵的进攻,人族又支持不住,出动公主请求神族救援,然后一段段的床戏。起点好歹为小说作者维护了一个收费的方式,但是内容便宜,作者就要让字节通胀来抵抗。如果哪天这些小说网站不收费了,而那些作者还不改行的话,估计小说里面兽族进攻的时候,会用搜狗来搜索地图的,而神族最后的神器,或许是某个山寨手机。对,嵌入广告基本上是免费内容唯一的出路了。

内容很多,优质的内容很少。优质的内容对用户有强大的吸引力,于是被疯狂的复制,进一步打击作者的积极性。最后大家都去制造垃圾,因为在垃圾堆里面,多占一块地也是好的。

那么,谁来制造优质的内容呢?

最近看了西厢计划原理,这个好玩,跟伟大火墙玩躲猫猫。不过大家小时候都翻过墙,小的时候墙那边虽然没有莺莺,但是有桑叶,木料,钢筋,电石等等各种好玩的东西。翻墙的要务,一个是不要被抓现行,另外一个是不要留下痕迹,不然再烂的墙,也有堵上的那一天。

上次在keso的google reader里面看到“万网国际域名转移传奇(到ICANN投诉万网最有效)”,里面作者说他需要借助google翻译和GoDaddy的客服去交流。我就跑到GoDaddy的创始人和CEO,Mr. Bob Parsons的blog里面去留言,建议他们组建一个用中文的客服团队,另外希望他们把网站也都翻译成中文。他们已经有一个中文页面,不过其他页面还都是英文的。

结果今天早上就收到GoDaddy的总裁兼首席运行官(COO),Mr. Warren Adelman的email,说Bob给他看了我的留言,感谢我对他们的建议。我和Mr. Adelman在email里聊了一下,谈了谈我的建议。他说GoDaddy的团队目前正在增加对中文用户的支持,他还告诉我,现在GoDaddy已经支持支付宝了。(我想这个大家都知道)

从我个人经验看,这个事情会花一些精力,毕竟支持一个完全不同的市场的用户不是个简单的事情,好在他们在向这个方向努力,还是可以期待的。
