In April 11 late night, my flight arrives Shenzhen international airport, which means I end up with my 4 years study in U.S. and come back to my mother land with all my passion.
Now, I work in one famous smart phone company, and of course I give up all the habit of driving, instead of taking public transport. The thing which really make me think about is the way people use phone is when I really closely look at the life status in subway.
Everybody watch their phone, everybody is into their own world.
I close my music player, and begin to look them in details, their face, emotions, reactions... One image pop-up, there are many cages around me. I can feel them physically, but their mind are far away from there, I feel like I am the only one waked, and others are fall into deep sleep.
So the thing is why people prefer into the phone world rather than physical? what is the key function of having a phone? so is the media changes people, or the media gives people more opportunity to freedom? in this freedom world, we build the community with perfect user-defined, we feel so comfortable and attractive into it. Comparing with the reality, it is our paradise.
I checked one artist named Mel, she speak herself as "My body is in New York, my soul is nowhere." It really reminds me to think myself separately between my mind and body, unfortunately smart phone is the perfect gate for them.
I know everything is moving forward, changing fast. There must be some roles or official institutions will stand out to keep a good balance of the information explosion today, and what the new role of phone after that? I really expect.
Though couple years study and work in design world, there are couple changes though my understanding. One of the important thing is about my reading habits. There are 2 kinds of book that I will love to spend time on it, one is theory of all kinds of things which depends on my interests in diff periods; another is magazine. From last year, I begin get magazines each month, and keep them with my rather than throw away.
I feel like magazine is more reflect on the reality which I want know. The real world, diff thinkings, lifestyles, roles of human beings. Like I use a small enter to see a big map of our times. I will keep them because they are the history of my understanding process of the world, think about myself in soul.
