Connecting the world

Connecting the World -- 這是 World Wide Web的意思。最近朋友邀請我在一個叫 LINKEDIN的網站上建立自己的account,這是一個擴大人際網絡,認識你的朋友的朋友和他們的朋友的朋友的網站。將你的cv放上account,有一天,你可能會收到第五層朋友 (即朋友的朋友的朋友的朋友的朋友)的工作邀請。我的account 現時只有一個朋友,即我的邀請人。但驚訝地,我在第三層朋友中,找到了我家姐的名子。家姐變成了朋友的朋友的朋友﹗

另一個網站是 my space,本來以為這是一個讓獨立音樂人發表作品的網站,最近又個法國朋友叫我開account,「在 myspace寫blog,更多人看」。真的嗎?於是我到myspace轉了個圈,這個網站包羅萬象,是認真的artisits的發表和宣傳平台,是徵友求愛的寂寞俱樂部、亦是色慾遍野的酒林肉池,總之,任君選擇﹗但意外地,竟然讓我撞上 Woody Allen 和 Catherine Deneuve,他們就如所有網民一樣,平起平坐,一起對談交流。忽然想,可能kundera正在某個地方寫blog,如果 walter benjamin的年代也有blog,他亦會寫blog嗎?我想會的,因為當年沒有出版社願意發表他的作品﹗唏,我們不也一樣嗎?﹗

法國有很多網站讓你找回失散多年的朋友,你列上自己就讀的學校和年份,然後己在data裡找你可能認識的人,這些人大部份是中、小學同學。然後他們就永遠停留在你的朋友清單裡,但你們丁能一樣永遠不再交談,感覺不就像「我知道你還活著就好了,等一天你就快要死的時候,記得通知我一聲,我們見個面吧﹗」

我不喜歡msn。ICQ 的年代我也有個account,但不常用。我是 3 字頭,7位數字,即「outdate」的象徵,朋友說,嘩,已經去到7位數字啦﹗msn online,見朋友online,"oh, you are still alive!"。 然後盯著online list上的舊知新歡,半小時、一小時、兩小時…… 大家互不打招呼,offline﹗就如大家對坐在火車上,兩個小時的旅程中裝作互不相識,感受能不酸嗎﹗所以,我不喜歡msn。如果你在msn上遇見我,你該知道我正處於極度無聊之際。

今天,我們就像一隻隻生活在這個巨大而纖細的網絡上的無聊小蜘蛛,無論你往哪個方向走,你總要面對無數的分岔口、無數的可能性,同時你亦變得無所遁形。人與人的關係,來得容易,去得更容易,所謂的 "hi - bye friend"﹗一切都已變得無所謂了,大家於對方的格值是「一蚊雞」。這是不是另一種不能承受的輕?

interesting observation!

i have also surfed thru" my space" ..not only musicians showing their latest news and music there..it's also a " platform" for event promotion too... "IDN ", "one dot zero " etc also got an account there..i think is another way to form a targeted audience list...

actually, i found " friendster " is quite useful for me. I can link up and connect all my long lost school mates there...though we dun talk or send message to each other but at least we know where to contact them ..and where they are living from around the world..

as for msn .. i found it quite useful ... to communicate and to speak rumours there haha!
well...i totally agree with you, the best way to communicate is face to face or a direct conversation on phone...sometimes, u will catch the wrong meaning even by chatting thru on msn...

um..just dun treat it so seriously... :P

It's friendster that I can talking about... they have some more websites like this. This is exactly this feeling that we have friends in our list, in phonebook, in msn, in mobile... everywhere, but then when we need to talk to someone, we don't know whom to call... remember the article of lilian in the MTR? It is the fact that people are around you but no one is available... this is the deepest sense of solitude!

You like my space? There are not many HKers in my space no?

What a world we are living in?

I asked an I.T. expert friend to set up a router yesterday; all were done through MSN and NetMeeting. And then off the connection, I suddenly realised that I don't have his telephone number!

And it's really embarrassing to TALK to somebody you only talk to via internet...

The other day we talked with some spanish friends through webcame... the mother kept talking and the sons kept writing MSN.. Finally, the mother asked me, "why you prefer to type when you can talk?" I said, "it's the power of words, you can type whatever you want, but can't say whatever you want!" There is a safe screen in this kind of communication... you don't worry about dead air, you don't need to wait for the other to finish, you go on with your own way and thought...
My friends in Paris, they prefer to email or msn me than to call me... and when i don't online, they forgot me... all the same.
