am learner.

Just as no one can see the colours I see, just as no one can hear the music I hear, just as no one can feel what I feel when I hold something in my hand, and just as no one can sense the world as I perceive it around me, no one can teach me.

No one can teach me.

I am learner.

I am not taught. I learn. I am human and a social animal, so I learn with others. I do learn from others, but what I learn is rarely, if ever, what is taught to me, and rarely, if ever, what others learn at the same time from the same teachers. Often I learn entirely alone.

I am learner.

I perceive. I use my senses to know the world around me. I discern patterns. I shape my understanding through metaphor and analogy. I seek to create purpose in my life. Sometimes I conceive purpose where there is none; often I accept others’ conceptions of purpose in life, others’ conceptions of purpose in the universe.

I am learner.

I build a universe in my mind and I live there, a universe that changes constantly as I learn. All people, including the people I love, live alongside me in this constantly shifting universe. I see only glimpses of the lives they lead, because, just as they are players in my world, I am a player in all the universes created by every other person alive.

I am learner.

I connect. I connect with people and ideas in the physical and virtual worlds and discern no boundary between the two worlds. I learn in, across, through, with and from the networks in which I live, work, play and interact. I continually extend my own potential through my connections. I make connections between what I have already learned and what the world chooses to present to me through my own interactions with the world and through the interventions and actions of others.

I connect therefore I learn.

I am learner.

I am able to recite facts, echo the opinions of others, assume the attitudes of so-called authorities when urged to do so, but I prefer to seek real knowledge of the changing world in which we live, genuine understanding of the realities of the human condition, authentic insight into our intrinsic dependence on one another. My need to know for myself is stronger than my need to recite from or imitate others.

I am learner.

I imagine. I reach beyond the reality of my senses and there I build my own dreams and visions; sometimes I welcome others’ wishful thinking and create my own place in their fantasies, accepting the values they place before me, filtering and refining them to fit my universe. Often, by accidents of time and place and birth, I am conditioned by those around me to accept their social, moral, religious and political values. In these circumstances, I still create my own truth but I struggle to do so freely, constrained by the strictures imposed on me by others.

I am learner.

I listen to stories from others; I tell my own stories, to myself, to others; I participate in stories, mine and others’. I determine who I am through a prism of dramas, tales, myths, histories, lies, assumed truths, rituals, games and a complex and intricate narrative that I weave around the realities of my life. I live and learn from the drama of the now and I recall and learn from the narratives woven out of past dramas.

I am learner.

I am not taught.

I learn.

John Gruber:深入Markdown

- - 博客 - 伯乐在线
“有时候一件事情的真相,不是来自于对它的思考,而是来自于对它的感觉. 这儿有个问题:你最近一次听到足以改变你内心想法的论述是什么时候. 不仅仅是关于那些你没怎么想过的问题,也包括在听到这个论述之前你原本相当确信的观念. 也就是说,你最近一次认识到自己在某个观念上彻底错了是什么时候. 如果你的回答是“从来没有”,或者是“很久以前”,那么这是否就意味着你总是正确的.

John Gruber 悼乔布斯

- tossking - Apple4.us
本文原载 Daring Fireball,发表于 2011 年 10 月 6 日,作者:John Gruber. 四个月前的 WWDC 主题讲演结束后,我近距离见到了乔布斯. 那种老无法用年龄衡量,是一种不可想象的老. 用疲劳一词形容并不确切,应该说是过劳. 他是病人,但用生病形容也不对,或许「古老」才是恰当的形容词.


- 昊 - 香港雜評
‘ 若你將每天當成生命中的最後一天,總有一天你是對的. ’ 喬布斯離去,除了留下為人津津樂道的科技產品,亦留下了啟發人心的人生哲理. 他在2005年於美國史丹福大學畢業禮上發表演說(圖),對人生際遇、愛與失落以及死亡的看法,值得令人再三細味. 今天我很榮幸出席全球其中一間最佳大學的畢業典禮. 我未曾大學畢業,老實說,今次是我最接近大學畢業的一次.
