翻墙者语

Saturday, July 25th, 2009

“是的,我一直以匿名身份与各位真实的网友交流,但我愈发觉得这匿名身份渐渐丰富起来,他的某种精神已经影响到他的实体――真实的我。我习惯在邮件中以”我们”自称,好似在害怕某种孤独,更像渴望获得对方的力量,我渐渐发觉实体的软弱的我正在借助虚拟的匿名身份武装自己。现在看来,这倒是一种奇妙的体验,我有点想笑。

是什么带给真实的我恐惧?又是什么给予虚拟的我力量?是GFW和它背后的一切

从网民们对GFW的讨论、或咒骂、或鄙夷、或戏谑中,我感受到的不是力量,而是恐惧。哪怕sshgfw这里一再避讳政治情绪,并坚信技术可以逾越政治,而 实际情况是,墙是基本上会翻了,但观念仍在墙内。回望一眼墙内的互联网创业环境,就会觉得身处墙外的自己,有骨气,没底气。我们只能乞求自己活得自私些, 把问题想简单些,把责任往外推一些,妙语连珠再多一些。

不管现状有多恶劣,我们都应以乐观积极的心态去面对,允许自己在适度自私的同时充分分享自己的时间和经验,允许自己在拥有快乐心情的时候去做一些帮助他人 获得快乐的事。当一个人因某种原因无法浏览某个网页的时候,帮助他找回本应属于他的那个网页便是一件让双方共同快乐的事。”

Paul Celan – Fugue of Death

Black milk of daybreak we drink it at nightfall
we drink it at noon in the morning we drink it at night
drink it and drink it
we are digging a grave in the sky it is ample to lie there
A man in the house he plays with the serpents he writes
he writes when the night falls to Germany your golden hair Margarete
he writes it and walks from the house the stars glitter he whistles his dogs up
he whistles his Jews out and orders a grave to be dug in the earth
he commands us strike up for the dance (more…)

Kumarajiva

我忽然想起鳩摩羅什大師,他在一千六百年前留下的許多漢譯佛經( 如《金剛經》 ),被我們傳誦至今,成為漢傳佛教的根本要典。鳩摩羅什大師的父親雖是印度貴族,但他的母親是龜茲國王的妹妹,而且他生在龜茲長在龜茲,成年後還在龜茲弘法利生,乃不折不扣的龜茲人。龜茲就是現在新疆的庫車,若按今天的族群觀點看,鳩摩羅什大師其實是個維吾爾人。他的模樣,應該就像電視裏的「暴徒」,就像那些被人打倒在地的小販。如果他活在今天,我們該看到他的那一種身份呢?

“屁民”

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2009

“再说,限制网民发言需要理由吗?按理是需要的,但事实上在现实中,在某些人的执法中,又根本是不需要理由的。限制就限制了,删帖就删帖了,根本不用跟你讲任何的理由。轻视、漠视“屁民”的言说权利到了何种地步由此可见一斑,又哪里有丝毫“依法行政”、“依法治国”的影子?诸如什么公民的参与权、知情权、表达权和监督权统统都见鬼去了。可悲的是,公民的权利遭受非法侵害之后,却常常难以甚至无法获得救济!”

… the demise of email sharing isn’t all that surprising considering that on the whole, social networking now has more reach than email worldwide. (more…)

“The River Sings And Sings On”

A Rock, A River, A Tree

Hosts to species long since departed,
Marked the mastodon.
The dinosaur, who left dry tokens
Of their sojourn here
On our planet floor,
Any broad alarm of their hastening doom
Is lost in the gloom of dust and ages.
