戴维·梅里:会唱歌的积木

今天为大家介绍的又是来自MIT 媒体实验室的一个新发明,它叫 Siftable,这个玩意儿虽然暂时还处于起步阶段,但是已经显现出巨大的魅力,我们不妨看看这位MIT的博士生戴维·梅里(David Merrill)是怎么介绍这东西的:

戴维·梅里当初想到要做这样一个项目,是因为他看到当今计算机正在变得越来越小,而现在这种通过鼠标来实现的人机互动模式已经不能满足我们的需要,因为我们渴望更多的通过双手去“直接实现”人机对话。于是,他就考虑到做这么一个项目。这个项目也许现在看起来还很幼稚,但是谁敢说它不会是十年后的计算机的雏形?


演讲中的戴维·梅里

更有趣的是,我们在TED官方网站上看到一位叫wylie jones的网友对演讲发表了一个评论,全文如下:

Dear David, I’ve been a teacher in two countries for 29 years. You are a great teacher; you answered every question I would have asked if I had been there. You were so poised.

For those of us who don’t have the opportunity or skills to attend schools like Stanford, MIT
(Media Lab), or Carnegie Mellon, there are books I’ve discovered as a teacher and a writer that will help almost anyone be more creative. I don’t have space here for titles, but here are a few writers that can help you be more creative. Edward de Bono, Roger van Oech, Todd Silver, Daniel Pink, Michael Michako, Dan Roam, and Charles Thomas. You have to already be creative to find creativity books, because they’re all over the bookstores; they’re in art, writing, psychology, design, business, and lots more.

David, presenters like you have made TED.com the best web site in the world. ‘

TED.com means: technology / entertainment / design

Because of speakers like David Merrill, TED.com could also stand for other words.

TED; TEACHING / ENCOURAGING / DEVELOPING

and

TED; TALENT / ENERGY / DARING

and

TED: THINKING / ENLIGHTENING / DISCOVERING

SLOGANS FOR TED: 1. What school should have been.
2. Tickling both sides of our brains
3. Cliche Killer -drawing outside the lines to push the envelope out of the box ahead of the curve
4. Antidote to boredom
5. Put TED in your head
6. Take 2 TEDs and call me in the morning
7. TED’s not a guy he’s a WHY?
8. I dare you to watch a TED and not think
9. Rewrite your brain withTED
10.I get a TED prize every time I watch
11.Be a TED HEAD

wylie jones说TED不但可以是 technology, entertainment, design(科技、娱乐与设计),还可以是teaching, encouraging, developing(教育、鼓励与发展)或 talent, energy, daring(才智、能量与胆识)或 thinking, enlightening, discovering(思考、启发与发现)。这个虽说只是wylie jones的个人看法,却也从某种程度上反映出 TED 的特点。看 TED 演讲不是单纯为了18分钟的精神快餐,而且是一种很好的获取灵感、开拓思路、培养多元思考能力的好办法,舍此就不真正意义上的 TED 了。

《戴维·梅里:会唱歌的积木》上的3个想法

  1. TED的确是很不一般,跟现在诸多高校的空中课堂或者是电视台的某某讲坛相比,相差真的是太远了,不仅仅是体现在大多数国人研究角度差而浅,而且出去文化因素,口才较差,表达能力不强,自从认识到TED之后很多大学课程差距真是太大了,演讲者大多是大学教授,他们的思想也大多写进了我们的教材,TED这样一个载体对大学教育的冲击不可小觑,这位网友很ted。
