输出:动机与尝试

很早就知道“输出带动输入”这个观点,最近又听到了一句蛮有感触的话叫做“输出决定了你的价值”。这句话想来还是有一定道理的,因为只有你说出来,别人才能知道你能够为他们带来什么。

刚好最近也在参与一个与“坚持”有关的社群,所以接下来争取能够分配一些时间写点文字出来,把各种有的、没的的思想落成文字。

曾经在 MOOC 学得最high的那段时候,想过把完成的每一门课写出一篇文章总结。然而大概也就写了不到一篇半篇的样子就没有继续下去了,归根结底,原因是没有足够的内驱力或者外部的动机。

当时自己学习学得很high,觉得只要把知识理解消化了就好,并没有特别强的意愿作为知识的搬运工,把学习到的知识转述传递给别人。学过很多有意思的课程都是英文的,确实也有不少受众希望能够把课程翻译成中文,给大家一些中文的讲解和分享。例如曾经学过一门特别好的课程是来自约翰·霍普金斯大学(Johns Hopkins University)的“心理救援干预”(Psychological First Aid),刚好那段时间国内有一个地震还是什么的灾难背景,其实在很多方面都是有需求的。然而感觉做“知识的搬运工”这件事情对我个人的价值是有限的。

前段时间果壳网推出了“分答”这样一个一问一答的在线语音问答的平台,对于提问者的问题,答主可以用60秒的时间来进行语音回复。作为分答平台的早期使用者,我还是很认真对待各种提问的。最开始的时候,一个问题我会准备一个文字的回答稿,然后照着去快速读完——保证信息量的充足以及逻辑的完整与准确。但是回答了几个问题后发现,对于这种完善准备的问题回答,几乎很难在60秒内把所有的点都说到,即使能够把逻辑梳理清晰,也只能举1到2个例子,很难分享更多的例子来支持这个回复。所以那会儿曾经想过把对于每一个问题的回答写一篇帖子写出来。

嗯,好不容易本来要着手开始做了,结果分答的平台就封闭维护了,之前的个人回答页面都无法访问。期待分答快点回归,争取把这件事情捡起来开始做。在这段时间内呢,也争取每周看看有什么话题或想法可以分享,争取把它落实到文字上。

估计未来写出来多半可能是流水账,还让各位看官见笑了。

Want to Feed an Webpage which doesn’t have RSS? Monitor it!

As part of my work, I need to check whether there comes a new policy or notifications from Agriculture Dept.

After having kept checking the page daily for 30+ days, I just came up with an idea — try to Feed it?

 

Firstly, I tried to find sth. that can make a Static-Website into an RSS-Feed.

But the page I need to tracking contains Chinese Characters, almost all the tools not works well.

Then, I came up with another idea — Instead of Feed it, maybe there’s a way to monitor its changes?

 

So I searched and found the following site:

# http://www.changedetection.com/faq.html

And a Software:

http://www.urlywarning.net/free_download.htm

 

I’ve tried and they both works well!

If you are also looking for sth relating, hope this post helps. 🙂
