災難見真情

有些朋友知道,我的電腦已經受損維修快半個月了。今天把 mediawiki 裡面救出的檔案,一點一滴的貼回到其他暫時的平台上,才深刻地體會到 incremental 知識整理的大不易。對使用者方便,但是一旦知識大廈樓塌的時候,在斷瓦殘垣中爬梳資料的那種感覺真是痛苦。越方便地堆疊的使用者便利知識,強大的版本控制,損毀時只剩下一地重複出現無法區辨的喃喃自語。

資訊災難,見資訊真情。

  1. Oh my gosh, I’m sorry to hear about that, hope you’re recovering (both yourself and your data) fast.

    For all the talk about redundancy and identifying the weakest spot, there’s one thing we sometimes overlook: the instant switch-over backup system (the second laptop, the “ring" genie as opposed to the lamp genie [in Aladdin’s Lamp]). On the other hand keeping the backup in stock is a costly habit.

    Let’s hope our next version is always built on a firmer ground, just as each earthquake forces us to review our zoning plans and construction regulations. “Great construction necessitates great destruction." But alas, the pain.

  2. Sophie: Much appreciated.

    Lukhnos: Thanks, and slow. Instant switch over system is the most important idea for the whole crash scenario for crisis management. Why no one seriously concern about it? As for knowledge service, the device should be the cheapest thing people could get prepared when disaster happened.

    For a kind of always growing mind, keeping backup is a difficult thing to do. Usually such scenario happened in switch job context. Now I learned the lesson (maybe I am staying too long in one place :P)

    I am dreaming/thinking about preservation information architecture, which aligns with the long now foundation concept: moverage (moving storage). Blog might be such contextual moverage system’s earliest partial prototype, ha.

    “Great construction necessitates great destruction". In another way round, “great deconstruction constructs greatly (pictures)." That’s also real in the field of earth observation and disaster science.
