"Christian
tradition has never upheld this right ( on
ownership, on the right to private property) as
absolute and untouchable, on the contrary, has
always understood this right within the broader
context of the right common to all to use the
goods of the whole of creation: the right to
private property is subordinatd to the right to
common use, to the fact that goods are meant
for everyone."


- Laborem Exercens, His Holiness Pope John
Paul II

"We imagine
that there is a gap between the world of our
private fantasies & the possibilities of
meaningful action & so it becomes easy to talk
& talk on what is lacking, to discourse on the
end, & yet feel impotent. "What's to do."
But this gap is a measure not so much of desires
or depression or impotence but of ourselves. It
has been the continual failure of Marxist
aesthetics to insist that this gap is simply another
illusory part of our commodity lives It is at the
root of our collectivity."

- Charles Bernstein
"Three or Four things I Know about Him"

so it becomes easy to code &
code on what is lacking, to CVS on the end, &
yet feel impotent. "what's to make money or
what's to make a better world" But this gap is a
measure not so much of "which language is better or
which OS is better or which chip is cheaper and
better" or depression or impotence but of
ourselves. It has been the continual failure of
GNU/Linux aesthetics to insist that this gap is
simply Free or Proprietary of our commodity code,
it is at the root of our collectivity, namely,
programmers spent 90% of their hours coding and 10%
of their hours thinking that other segments of
industry and our society at large have to adopt
programmer's methodology through their programs.

free software movement must extend its
creativity and channel its exuberant energy into
changing social and economic landscape.
"Immense development of technological means is
an advatageous and positive phenomenon, on
condition that the objective dimension of work
does not gain the upper hand over the subjective
dimension, depriving man of his dignity and
inalienable rights or reducing them."

洋人看京戏及其他001

洋人看京戏及其他

Peking Opera and other tales through the eyes of clueless onlookers
written by Eileen Chang, originally published in 1943

If we examine affairs of all things Chinese as if we were foreigners watching Peking Opera, it could be fun and meaningful again.  With bamboo cloth line and baby diapers hanging over viewers' heads; Glasses over the counter top filled with "longevity spirit from Ginshen";  Radio playing famed Mei Lanfang operatic voices over the wavelength from one corner; and from another, advertisement of miracle ointment to cure and sooth contagious scabies or itching ... that's all what it means to be living in Chinese atmosphere, their multiplicity, poignancy, mysterious or too funny for words.

Many young generation worldly men loved China but had no idea what attracted them to its culture.  Unconditional love is quite admirable -- the only danger is that sooner or later,  when reality bites, they are unprepared for its deadly touch, inhaling into their chests its full blown coldness and their hearts gradually turned into icicles. We are unfortunately to live among local Chinese populace, unlike other expatriates, safely worshiped their motherland afar with awe and affectionate undying love. So come and take a much closer look!  Re-examine Chinese life through clueless foreigner's glasses while they listen to our Peking opera, with big surprises and intrigues, we might gain loving insights that otherwise we don't know it is always there.

Whenever I had a conversation longer than three sentences, I couldn't continue without mentioning Peking opera. And why is that, you may wonder. That's because I don't make a living to sing Peking opera yet I am full of curiosity towards it. As far as living a life, who wouldn't admit that they only have half of the clues? I am particularly fond of using Peking opera to set a proper attitude towards life as how Chinese live in it.

Those fair ladies from Peking opera troops who've played big roles on stage, when they learned that you like watching Peking opera, they would smile and say: " You know Peking opera, that is a sophisticated showbiz all in itself. Directing each stage and scene setting with proper costumes, that involves much subtleties and minute details, you could probably spend your whole life to understand what it might entail. "  Of course, I wouldn't have any clue if they were put on wrong costumes for a historical period of time; and if their tunes were a bit off the scores, I wouldn't notice anything either. I only love to sit in front rows, totally immerse myself into actors' actions on stages;  let myself being blown away by those colorful blue and golden painted face under bulky armories, long capes flowing up and showing its red inlines,  jade green trousers flipping out purple underlines.

Opinions by outside observers are sometime invaluable, or else whenever American journalists interview some big shots,  why they always like to pick topics that is totally unrelated to their professed expertise? For example, when they interview a female murder suspect, they want to know if she was optimistic on how our world might end; interviewing a boxing champion, they ask him if he approves adaptation of Shakespearian play into modern fashion show. Of course, they need to attract viewers, to make them laugh and feel good about themselves, thinking: "I know even more than these social celebrities.  Famed people can be dumber than me!"  On the other hand, outsiders might have a fresher and simpler outlook, that is worth uncovering.

In order not to take myself too serious, let's talk about 话剧里的平剧罢。《秋海棠》一剧风魔了全上海,不能不归功于故事里京戏气氛的浓。紧跟着《秋海棠》空前的成功,同时有五六出话剧以平剧的穿插为号召。中国的写实派新戏剧自从它的产生到如今,始终是站在平剧的对面的,可是第一出深入民间的话剧之所以得人心,却是借重了平剧——这现象委实使人吃惊。

Silence U Part 2: What Has Yale Become? | We the Internet Documentary
WATCH and SHARE "Silence U Part Two: What Has Yale Become?"
Watch We the Internet TV's most popular video! 

Today the Moving Picture Institute's comedy web channel We the Internet TV released a new short documentary "Silence U Part 2: What is Yale Becoming?", the follow-up to its 2016 viral hit "Silence U: Is the University Killing Free Speech and Open Debate?

The film examines Yale's notorious controversy surrounding administrative controls over Halloween costumes. The film asks: If universities can't tolerate debate about controversial issues, how can they call themselves places of learning? The 12-minute documentary has already garnered press in the New York Times and the College Fix.

"The silence from students shocked me," said the film's director Rob Montz. "Forget what's right -- students openly told me they wouldn't say anything controversial or speak out against the administration because it could jeopardize their job prospects."  

"Although our comedy videos typically focus on satirizing politics, We the Internet TV released 'Silence U' to support open discourse," said Lou Perez, comedian and We the Internet TV's head writer. "This is more than a documentary about Yale -- we're seeing this story play out on campuses nationwide. This belongs on We the Internet because humor can't survive without free speech."

We the Internet TV, through its podcast and live show "Unsafe Space," will host a panel about the video tonight at 8 p.m. at The Lab at The Hollywood Improv. Watch the event via live-stream here.

颜宁:换一种环境,希望能够在科学上取得新突破


始于5月3日的一条微博在这个周末持续发酵——世界顶尖结构生物学家、清华大学生命科学学院教授颜宁近日受聘美国普林斯顿大学分子生物学系雪莉·蒂尔曼(Shirley M. Tilghman)终身讲席教授。

在清华大学完成本科学习,在普林斯顿大学完成博士及博士后研究的颜宁,为何在任教清华后又受聘普林斯顿?对于“双一流”建设中的清华大学,这又意味着什么?记者就此采访清华校方及颜宁本人。

清华大学:

有助于将中国学术思想、教育理念传播到国际学术舞台

清华大学相关负责人首先证实了这一消息。该负责人表示,颜宁经本人慎重考虑并与学院和学校仔细沟通,已决定接受美国普林斯顿大学分子生物学系雪莉·蒂尔曼终身讲席教授的职位,将于近期前往就任该教职。他透露,在聘期内,颜宁将在普林斯顿大学继续从事高水平学术研究和人才培养工作,也会保持与清华的联系,在符合两校规范的情况下,安排出时间在清华继续从事一定的科研和教学工作,推动两校和中美两国间学术交流与合作的进一步深化和提高。

高水平创新人才是创新型国家建设的宝贵资源,也是世界各国高度关注、积极争取的重要力量。近年来,随着清华大学逐渐成为世界一流高校的一分子,该校培养的博士毕业生受聘于海外高水平大学正式教职的情况已日益多见,在职教师被包括美国麻省理工学院、普林斯顿大学在内的世界名校聘为长聘或讲席教授的情况也时有发生。这位负责人说,这些事例一定程度上反映了我国高等教育发展进入了新阶段,世界一流大学对包括清华大学在内的国内高校的学术研究和人才培养水平有较高认可,清华大学有一批优秀学者已达到国际一流大学教师的水平,其中的杰出者更是达到了世界名校的讲席教授水准。

以颜宁为代表的青年科学家赴世界顶尖高校任教,将对处在“双一流”建设中的中国高校,产生什么影响?该负责人直言,这是国际高层次人才流动的正常现象。清华对此保持开放、乐观和积极的态度。“近年来,我国大学师资水平不断提升,与国际一流大学师资流动更加频繁,合作日益紧密,像姚期智、施一公等从普林斯顿回到清华,带动了清华相关学科的发展,加强了中美两国科研等领域的合作。颜宁选择再次回到普林斯顿大学,我们相信,这有助于将中国的学术思想、教育理念和清华的学术风格传播到国际学术舞台,产生更大的影响。”

颜宁:

换一种环境,希望能够在科学上取得新突破

对于颜宁来说,这同样是一个不容易的决定。她告诉记者:“因为过去10年我在清华大学获得了极好的支持。清华有优秀的学生,有给我动力和压力的优秀又友好的同事,有给我全力支持的学校和学院管理部门等等。在这些无与伦比的软硬件支持下,我取得的科研成果甚至超过了自己回清华之初的预期。”

为何离开?颜宁用“居安思危”解释:“我生怕自己在一个环境里待久了,可能故步自封而不自知。换一种环境,是为了给自己一些新的压力,刺激自己获得灵感,希望能够在科学上取得新的突破。”

“另一方面,清华大学和普林斯顿大学都是我的母校,能够在这两所让我骄傲的母校任教是我一直以来的理想。我很开心10年前清华大学向我伸出了橄榄枝,两年前普林斯顿大学也同样向我伸出了橄榄枝,让我得以梦想成真。我也会凭着对清华的热爱,尽己所能,促进普林斯顿等国外一流学府与清华的交流合作。这也是我在这个阶段回报母校的一种方式。”

(本报北京5月7日电 本报记者 晋浩天)
