忽爾四年

開始,到一年兩年三年,這裡在今日這個「黑色星期五」踏入第四個年頭,雖沒有大擂大鼓大事慶祝的打算,但是總得應景寫一篇東西,以作紀念。

過去一年,時常提醒自己的是「冷靜、冷靜、再冷靜」,以及「真正懂的東西才敢下筆」,也記著別人要怎樣說,是別人的權利,不同意的也不用大動干戈,非將對方打個稀巴爛不可。這一年寫的東西是少了,學業工作兩忙固然是絕佳的藉口,但是面對想寫的題材,發現自己真的是才疏學淺,不敢班門弄斧、以免落得貽笑大方才是真正的原因。經常對自己說,不要那麼衝動,站遠點,看多一點,知道多一點才好寫,但是本性太懶惰,過了一段時間,本來在腦中成形的東西就已經失去了寫的熱情,真不能原諒。

但到底,這裡不是要趕日日見刊的專欄,也沒有特地向別人交代的壓力,容許我求精不求多,也是可以原諒的吧?

簡略回顧了過去一年的文章,發現一些特色:這一年好像多說了傳媒生態,同時也發現很多問題「不好說」。此外說運動的文章也少了(與現實情況中,看少了直播極有關係),電影、書本的文章也少得可憐。與之前的三年相比,這一年確是「少產」了。不過話得說回來,總是有點東西可以見人的:

1.這不是訪問,這是一次寵幸
2.網事,網了世上無難事
3.糟糕的調查,糟糕的報道
4.Seinfeld.Leon.Web 2.0Re:「這雙手雖然小」
5.Myanmar還是Burma?
6.甚麼是國際視野?
7.中文網誌年會的報道:其一其二
8.「不舒服」
9.畫蛇添足反累事
10.從貝娜齊爾遇刺一刻的相片說起
11.雜談《愛.誘.罪》
12.好天真好傻之後
13.不好說系列:西藏聖火卡弗蒂
14.無題
15.救救孩子(08版)

對各位來這裡的朋友,一句話:非常感激。

    回看兩年前的生日文章,我是這樣寫的:「繼續兩年又兩年咁寫落去~」

    過了今天,轉眼又踏入第五個年頭,這句也應該改成:

    「繼續五年又五年咁寫落去~」

    仍是那句,祝生Blog 快樂!

    「看多一點,知道多一點才好寫」,如何量度何謂「多」?
    能不能把知道少一點時就寫,當作一個整理、等待跟人交流和激發的過程,就像蛻一層皮一樣?
    是不是把自己已蛻去的皮看得有點過重了?
    少寫了,讓看的人感到有點可惜……

    Agree absolutely with csy_ma above. Apart from egomaniacs and the truly self-delusional, nobody can say that he or she has a monopoly on the whole truth; rather, truth is something that could (though not necessarily would) emerge from rigorous debates that take into account different viewpoints. And often times, the question is more important than the answer. Nobody who is immediately outside of an event would have access to all the facts on the ground, and even what facts there are are often debatable, even for the individuals involved, and the reflection brought on by time and distance and by the questionning of others will bring out new facets of the “truth”.

    So I’ve often felt uncomfortable with your standpoint that certain things are「不好說」 and are off-limits to outsiders’ questioning precisely because “they / we are outsiders, what do they / we know?”. But isn’t it precisely because we don’t know that we should question and demand answers on issues that we ought to know more about? And isn’t our position as outsiders precisely what presents us with a differing perspective to the insiders, and allow us to challenge the often unacknowledged assumptions of those involved? Of course, insiders’ could challenge outsiders’ biases and assumptions, too. We are all humans and we all have our various psychological faults in assuming we know best, but that shouldn’t stop us from debating. In the many thorny issues that have happened in the past year, it is actually the wish of those involved that “the world” should know the truth. And who else constitutes “the world” but all of us? We’re all citizens of the world, and by questioning and debating and arguing, we’re doing our tiny bit to ensure that the truth comes out. Labelling something as “「不好說」” seems to only turn sensitive topics into taboos, and I can’t imagine that being a good thing. As I think it was Jefferson who once said, “errors of opinion are tolerated as long as reason is left free to combat them”.

    Of course, please feel free to correct me if I’m wrong :) And I do want to express my gratitude that your blog posts have brought new perspectives to world events, even if I may not agree with them 100% of the time. But whether your readers’ are in agreement or not is kinda beside the point though, isn’t it, as long as what you wrote was actually thought-provoking rather than bias-confirming?

    來這裡讀網主的文章,是忙碌工作中的一大享受。
    面對自己感興趣的題材,我一直有種「欲寫無從」之感,怕自己的一枝秃筆,會把好題材寫壞了。但經驗告訴自己,就算寫壞了也不要緊,因為有識之士會替自己修正。有時候,在別的博客處留一言半語,換來一篇精神的網誌,那是多麼讓人欣喜的事情!
    好喜歡讀網主關於電影和時事的評論,希望來年有機會看更多精彩的文章。
    最後祝「聞.見.思.錄」生日快樂!
