会展与当地文化的“融合”

⑴以适用的轻便的旅游纪念品和消费品造市场。 以文化“件”造市场。物以稀为贵。这个市场的特色就是“人无我有”,就是“只此一家别无分店”。市场“件”是与景点、民间艺术以及相关的书籍、画册、碑刻匾联拓片等等。民间特色,风土人情,景点观赏,都可以以展“促销”;地区的特有“稀奇”的文化艺术品。 ⑵增加外地的产品,为文化气愤添加色彩。 但不能与本地产品不冲突为限制。 ⑶以文化娱乐造市。 就是以当地的民间故事传说为题材编演节目一台或数台,组建私营或合营的演出队伍。以歌舞戏剧曲艺杂技等形式进行演出。演出场面根据客源可大可小可合可分,可在市场内固定场所演出,也可应组团游客之邀参加联欢演出。为了到访的客人带来浓厚的乡土气息,塑造城市的文化特色。 以上三个方面所造就的文化特色市场形成的独一无二的特殊文化市场,不仅将文化特色宣传出去,同时也宣传城市特色传到了外地。吸引资金的投入,打动产业的发展。

“让每一个非洲家庭都买得起、看得起、看得好数字电视,共享数字电视的美好”是四达时代集团(以下简称“四达时代”)努力追求的目标。

由韩国服饰文化协会、中国美术家协会以及清华大学美术学院染织服装艺术设计系联合举办的2008国际服装文化会展,近日在清华大学美术学院闭幕。

为何坏消息那么多?

主持人:最近关于比特币的的新闻不少,像有人被逮捕,有人破产跑路了,你怎么来看比特币这个世界?

我想先来聊两个事情... 看看咱们能不能把麦克的回声调小一点... 能行吗?... 好,首先我们应该要从当前这个时间点上来看比特币,比特币只存在了5年而已,最早的那篇论文是2009年发表的。我觉得历史上很类似的一个时间点就是大众互联网的1994年,为啥提这一年呢?因为1989年那年人们发明了万维网技术,发明了 http 协议和 html 语言。从89年到94年的这5年里,我们这些人参与到了互联网早期的一些项目里,例如 Mosiac 浏览器等。有人开始就用这些东西,主流社会也开始看得到这些东西。

但是那时候这些东西都是非常边缘的,看起来非常新,非常古怪和吓人。所以说,互联网最早是个非常边缘化的技术。同时呢,随之而来的还有一些很边缘的政治主张,和一些想法很边缘的人。确实有不少这样的人,有些在现在看来是非常成功的,成了历史名人了。

曾经这些人有过的那些疯狂想法中,一些关于技术的,今天看来是非常对的,另外有一些政治的,取决于你的观点的不同,看起来是对的或是错的。不过确实也有很多人获得了政治上的成功。

总之是要有一个过程的,果子需要慢慢的成熟。所以现在很多人批评说比特币就是些边缘另类的人在搞非常边缘的技术,边缘的政治,边缘的公司。但我的问题是,如果没有这些边缘的人和他们的政治主张,哪里会有来自边缘的技术呢?其实只要是等待时机成熟的时候,所谓边缘的技术就会被主流社会所接受。但是这个种子永远是来自边缘社会的,而从来都不诞生在主流人群。在整个的成熟的过程中,这些边缘的人和政治总会被大家当做异类去讨厌,但是其实历史上每一次颠覆性的创新都是走这样一个循环的。

所以你提到的那些比特币世界里最近的那些不好的新闻,就是这个历史规律的一个体现。其实如果不出这些事倒是很让人奇怪的。出现颠覆性的变革,但是同时又不出现这种激烈地社会摩擦,这个在历史上将会是极为少见的。

自2002年进入非洲市场以来,四达时代已在卢旺达、尼日利亚、肯尼亚、坦桑尼亚、乌干达、南非等30多个国家开展数字电视运营,用户超过2200万(1100万移动客户端用户),成为非洲发展最快、影响最大的数字电视运营商。特别是,自“一带一路”倡议提出以来,四达时代通过数字电视,不仅让非洲人民了解中国文化,也让非洲与世界连通。

出席本次活动的中方代表有中国美协副主席、清华大学校务委员会副主任、清华大学学术委员会主任王明旨,清华大学美术学院院长、党委书记李当岐,清华大学美术学院染服系主任肖文陵及韩国服饰协会各位专家学者。

两种文化

最近我总跟大家讲的一个人,就是英国的一个化学家,同时也是个小说家,叫 C.P Snow 。他是二十世纪中叶的作家,那个时候,人们所谓的高新科技还是物理学这些东西...炸弹,原子能。 他写文章讨论了文化分为两支:科技文化和人文文化,这两个文化的鸿沟正在形成。这个观点其实也正好适用于我们今天。

现在我们有,一方面,工程文化,科学文化,技术文化,另一方面,艺术文化,文学文化等这些非技术文化。大家如果不搞技术,不是工程师,就开始觉得技术这个东西正在变得越来越怪异和可怕,想想原子弹,想想比特币... 哈,这类比够牛的。

技术上这些突破性成果,看起来是要把社会带人一种未知的状态啊,所以对于非技术文化下的人们,这个确实有点让人担心。谁知道会有什么坏得结果呢,谁知道呢?

在这个情景下,钱这个概念就变得很有意思,因为过去的这几百年来,钱一直是非技术领域的一个事,当人们一想到钱,其实直观上就是一个信任的问题。我们要信任谁,信任那个机构。你信任美国政府吗?你觉得美国财政部怎么样?所以基本上就是你要信任这些银行和他们身后的政府。

而在搞技术的人的角度来看,人和机构其实都是其次的,真正核心的问题是你是否相信数学,算法,代码,加密这些客观的技术手段。现在让一个技术人来看这个问题,他就会说:啊,这不很明摆着的事吗?比特币更值得信赖啊,因为基本的数学规律这个是不能骗人的,相应的,如果是让一些我们根本都不认识的人来操作我们的钱,那可以不一定了,就像我们大家2008年所看到的那样。

但是非技术领域的人就会说了,那我怎么去相信数学啊,我又不懂。总不至于让我去再读个数学或是计算机的博士吧。其实实际上也用不着,因为我觉得技术和非技术这两种文化未来会自然的融为一体,只要我们在两个角度来共同努力:首先是,我们这些代表工程技术文化的这些人,必须得努力给大家介绍这些内容,把逻辑简化,讲的生动形象一些,把这些技术弄到好用又好理解的程度。我们要和非技术领域的人们一起到达这种交叉点,而不是什么都不做,让这些技术把大家难倒。但是另一方面,非技术文化领域要有一种开放的心态,要参与进来学习和理解这些东西。我觉得未来3年,这种融合就要发生。

项目合作持续深化

这次会展活动的主要议题为“多元文化与时装工业战略联合”。在这一主题指导下,中韩两国高等院校希望通过在未来服装文化、产业的发展和服装设计人才的培养等方面进行广泛交流,力争通过这次交流,提高中韩两国的服装原创设计水平,打造出高品位的民族品牌。美国下届国际纺织品和服饰联合会主席、美国服饰公司CEO,阿拉巴马州立大学教授和清华大学美术学院染织服装艺术设计系臧迎春博士等分别作了演讲,对中韩两国之间关于亚洲传统、创新、现代和自然之美及服饰文化进行了充分的交流。

我们要解释自己

主持人:这是否能解释为何你最近又重启你的 twitter 跟大家做交流。

是的,总体上,我们硅谷这些搞技术的,喜欢比特币的,所有的技术产业的这些人,都有义务把我们所做的这些事解释给大家听。就像 C.P Snow 曾经描述的那样,现在又到了一个特殊的时刻,有了一个像比特币这样的一个颠覆性创新被搞成了,期待大家都来用。但是咱们却没有很好的让大家理解这个东西,以至于让比特币显得挺吓人的。

所有我觉得我们这些人有这个责任,去让大家觉得其实比特币不是个特别奇怪的东西。要提一下的是,当前的互联网必须要经历这样的一个过程,最终大家度过了这个过程,个人计算机也是相同的故事。这种理解最终都会慢慢形成的,目前我们还处于比特币的这个过程的刚开头,所以前面我们还有很长的路要走。


I will start by saying two things... maybe they can turn down the echo a little bit, will that be possible... two things we think about a lot. First of all, we think it's important to put bitcoin in context with where we are,bitcoin only exists for 5 years,the origin paper came out in 2009, I think the relevant comparison point for bitcoin is about 1994 for the consumer internet. I say that because that 1989 was when the web was first invented, when http and html were invented. And there was this five year period between 89 and 94, when those of us who are working on ... early Mosaic , you kind of used these stuff and you can see it.

But it was really fringe, really new and really weird and really scary and really odd, and it arrived as a fringe technology. And then by the way, it arrived with fringe politics, and it arrived with fringe characters and there were a whole cast of characters in that era, some of them became very successful, and some of them are historical figures now.

But there were the whole set of fringe characters who had these crazy ideas, and many of the tech ideas turned out to be correct. Many of the political ideas, you know, depending on your point of view, turn out to be correct or not correct. Actually a fair number of people got the solution politically through that process.

But it worked, and there was this process maturation through which it worked. So I think the critique of bitcoin as sort of being fringe tech, fringe company, fringe politics, fringe characters, I don't know how you get fringe tech without fringe politics and fringe characters. You just have to go through maturation process when you come out to the other end, fringe tech goes main stream and gets widely adopted. Along the way the fringe characters and fringe politics tend to get alienated and then move on to the next fringe tech and the circle repeats. But you don't get the tech from the main stream, you get them from the fringe.

So I think this is the case study of that. And every single one of things you mentioned is a example of how the early stage of this adoption cycle happen. So it will be really shocking at this kind of things were not happening, it will be very historical unusual if this kind of thing were not happening.

“Hello Mr.Right”是近期在非洲“火”起来的一档相亲节目,2018年此节目在赞比亚、乌干达、尼日利亚相继播出后,在当地引起轰动,收视火爆,成为当地社交媒体上关注的话题。这是一档由四达时代策划推出的节目,由中非双方团队共同制作完成,中方团队主要提供技术支持和指导,非方团队更多地参与节目设计。

据悉,活动同期还举办了题为“艺术与亚洲之美”的服装展,展出中方服饰14套、韩方服饰34套。

Two Cultures

I'll been talking recently about, there is a British chemist and novelist named C.P Snow, who wrote in the middle of 20th century, when physics was sort of high tech, and he wrote the famous essay and talked about the two cultures: Science Culture and Literal Culture, basically he described the kind of cultural divide was forming, where it mirrors to exactly what's happening today, the sort of engineering culture, science culture, tech culture, and literal culture, liberal arts culture, non-tech culture are sort of normal people who are not engineers, increasingly feel like this tech stuff is getting really weird and scary, I mean, atom bomb, bitcoin.

The fundamental tech break through, looks like it's going to change the world in unpredictable ways, and for non-tech people that can be weird and scary, because who knows what is the consequences it's going to be, who knows how to think about these things.

Money is interesting in that context, because money has been on non-tech side of the culture for the last 1000 years, 300 years at least, with paper money and before that, when normal people think about money, they think about who can you trust, which institution can you trust, can you trust the US gov, can you trust US Treasure Dep, it's very much that, can you trust the banks, do you trust the gov sitting behind the bank. The broad cultural view of money is based on trust in people and institutions.

On the engineering side of things, people and institutions are beside the point, the core of it is,can you trust the math? Can you trust algorithm, can you trust the code, can can you trust crypto. And part of what is happening right now is engineers look at this, and they are like: Oh this is obvious, the bitcoin is better because it's math you can trust, oppose to people you have never known, as we discovered in 2008.

Normal people look at that, how can you trust math? does that mean you have to be mathematician,have ph.D in math or computer science to understand the stuff. So I think what has to happen is that actually the two cultures have to come together, and for that to happen basically two things are required.

One is engineering culture which we represent, we have to really work hard to be able to explain the stuff, articulate it, simplify it, make it easy to use, make it understandable. And we have to reach the cross, and we have to bring people with us, as oppose to just having this to freak everybody out.

But people on the other side of the culture, non-tach culture, need to be open minded and need to be willing to engage to understand and learn. And that's the big part of what I think has to happen next 3 years.

Yes, I mean the collective way, all of us in silicon valley, in bitcoin world, everybody in tech industry. I think we have a obligation to explain ourselves. I think the days, this go back again to C.P Snow, the days where you can have sth as fundamentally important as bitcoin gets created and unleashed in the world and everybody expected to adapt to without having it get translated from weird and scary to like ok you can wrap your head as normal people around this.

That's our responsibility, that's not going to happen by itself. By the way, that had to happen with internet, did happen with internet, had to happen with PCs, and did happen with PCs, this does happen, we are just right in the middle of it, right at the beginning of it right now, so we still have quite a way to go.

Happiness与同事一起在2017年第一届“一带一路”国际合作高峰论坛民心相通平行论坛上亮相

赵成旭是这档节目中方制作团队的负责人,据她介绍,“Hello Mr.Right”采用录播的形式制作,每周六晚在当地播出,每集45分钟左右。这档节目每期有3位男嘉宾、8位女嘉宾参加。经过“第一印象”“才艺展示”“观众预测”等互动流程后,男嘉宾可以在为他“留灯”的女嘉宾中做出选择,双方即可牵手离开。相比中国类似的节目,“Hello Mr.Right”的综艺性更强,加上非洲嘉宾自身的表现力,节目中牵手成功的嘉宾也很多,可看性非常强。

赞比亚小伙 Wellington Michelo就曾参加了一期节目。他在一家企业担任高管,因为工作的原因,一直没有找到适合自己的另一半。节目中,女嘉宾银行职员Fatuma对他一见钟情,并一开始就为他“爆灯”,最终两人牵手成功,赢得了台下观众热烈的祝福掌声。
