悪と信仰心 by Alice Cooper

November 05 [Wed], 2008, 2:13
Ann Cooperの記事の途中ですが、Alice Cooperのインタビューも平行してUPしていきます。

二人の名まえは似ているけど、全く異なる人物です。
ただ、共通点としては、アメリカ子供達、おもに貧困層の社会問題に対して二人とも取り組んでいることです。


この英語のインタビューは比較的易しいうえに、とても興味深いことを語っています。
ステージで悪を演じるアリスのクリスチャンとしての信仰心とは・・・

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tN9OOMVy9kg&feature=related

INTERVIEWER:

A lot of people who recognize the name, Alice Cooper have no idea that he’s a Christian. Tell us how and when you came to the faith.

COOPER:

You know, I’m a protocol son for one thing. I’m a perfect example of protocol son. My dad was a pastor and my grandfather was an Evangelist. And actually both my dad and grandfather were evangelists. And my wife’s father was a Baptist pastor. So I grew up in the church, and I was, all of my friends were church kids. I had so much fun, I mean, I was in church on Sundays, Wednesday night, Friday night, I mean, all my social life was based around kids in the church. And that was great, and I got to high school, and all of the sudden, the Beatles came out. I went, ‘Oh’, it was a kind of, you know. And I was a natural mimic anyways. So I watched the Beatles, and I thought, ‘that will be fun to do’.

Being in a hit band with hit records, and getting as big as we’ve got is like winning a lottery about three times. It’s just doesn’t happen. You know, we were definitely the underdogs, in the whole thing, and we kept going, ‘Well, we never gonna make it. This is fun. We don’t have to do this. We’re going to get real jobs’. And we kept bigger and bigger and bigger. And all the sudden, there we were. You know, and then on top of it, being creative, I looked around and I went, ‘there’s no villains in rock’n’roll. Why not create rock’s ultimate villain?’

That’s my premise. We’ve seen sick kids, get sicker and sicker. And the reason this is happening, by and large, is because of our food system, and the way of our government co-modifies food, they way of our government oversees our food, the way the US DA puts food on kids’ plates that’s unhealthy and allows unhealthy food into schools.

1:35
And by passively all of us send our kids, grandchildren, or nieces and nephews to schools and tell them to learn, you know learn…to school. When you feed these kids bad food, that’s what they’re learning. That’s really this is all about. The way we’ve got here is because of the big agri-business. We now live in a country where most of us don’t decide, by and large, what we eat. We’ve seen big businesses.

アメリカ・学校給食の改革に向かって @by Ann Cooper

October 28 [Tue], 2008, 15:45
カナダで暮らしていてびっくりしたことの一つに、普通の公立学校の学食にハンバーガーやフレンチフライ、コーラなどのジャンクフードが堂々と売られていることでした。

学校側は、そのカフェテリア業者、ペプシ、コカコーラらと「契約」をしていて、それにより多大な援助金を手に入れられる利点があるようです。そのなかで、実際にそれを口にする子供達の利益は無視されている形になっているようです。

私の地域のどこの大学のカフェテリアも、同じ業者が運営していて、その学食の不味いこと。そしてその不味さにふさわしくない高い値段設定・・・。学生のときはほとんど利用しませんでした。

Ann Cooper: Reinventing the school lunch

赤字は聞きとり困難だったところです。(間違っている可能性もあり)

・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・
0:00~
My things with school lunch isn’t social justice issue. I’m a director of nutrition services for Brookline Unified school district. I have 90 employees, 17 locations, and 9600 kids, I’m doing 7100 meals a day. And I’ve been doing it for two years, trying to change how we feed kids in America. And that’s what I wanna talk to you a little bit about today.

These are several of my kids with the salad bar, I put the salad bar in all of my schools. When I got it there, everyone said that it couldn’t be done. Little kids couldn’t eat off at the salad bar, big kids would spit in it. Neither happened.

When I took over this, I try to really figure out what my vision would be, how do we really change children’s relationship to food. And I will tell you why we need to change it but we absolutely have to change it. And what I came to understand is we needed to teach children the symbiotic relationship between healthy planet, healthy food and healthy kids. And if we don’t do that the antithesis, although we heard otherwise, is we are really going to become extinct because we’re feeding our children to death.

やっと最終回です。

17:15~

So we are the web, that’s what this thing is. We are gonna be the machine. So the next 5000 days, is not gonna be the web only better, just like it wasn’t TV the only better. The next 5000 days, it’s not gonna be the web but only better, but it’s gonna be something different. And I think it’s gonna be smarter, have an intelligence in there, not again conscious but it will anticipate what we’re doing in a good sense. Secondly it’ll become much more personalized. it’ll know us, last good. Again, the price for that will be transparency. Thirdly it’s gonna become more ubiquitous in terms of filling the entire environment we will be in the middle of it. And all of these devices will be portals into that.

18:07~

So the single idea, that I want to leave with you is that we have to begin to think about this is not just web only better, but a new kind of stage in its development. It looks more global. It’ll take the whole thing, it is very big machine, very reliable machine, more reliable than its parts. But we can also think about it as a kind of large organism. And so we might respond to it, more as if it was a whole system, more as if it was a large organism we’re going to be interacting with. It’s a One. And I don’t know what else to call it than the One. We’ll have a better word for it but there’s a unity of some sort they’re starting to emerge.

18:47~

And again, I don’t wanna talk about consciousness. I just wanna talk about, just a little bacteria or blob box which is what the organism is. So to do our action, take-away, so here is what I will say; there is only One machine, and the web is its OS, all screens looking into the One. No bits will live outside the web; to share is to gain; let the One read it. There’s gonna be Machine, you wanna make something that Machine can read. And the One is us. We are in the One. I appreciate your time.

16:00~

So last thing we’re gonna talk about this society is that we will be co-dependent. It’s always gonna be there, and the closer is the better. If you allow Google Tool, it will tell you your search history. I found out that by looking at it that I search most 11 O’clock in the morning. So I’m open and being transparent to that. And I think, total personalization in this new world will require total transparency. That is gonna be the price, if you wanna have total personalization, you have to be totally transparent. Google…I can’t remember my phone number, I’ll just ask Google. We kind of are so dependent on this that I’ve gotten to the point that I don’t need to try to remember anything, I will just Google it.

16:35~

It’s easier to do that. And we kind of are objective for saying, ‘oh it’s awful’. But if we think about the dependency we have on the other technology, call the alphabet in writing. We totally depend on, it’s transform culture. We cannot imagine ourselves without the alphabet in writing. And so in the same way, we’re gonna not imagine ourselves without the other machine being there. And what is happening with this is it is some kind of AI; it’s not AI of conscious AI, AI as being expert, Larry Page told me that’s what they’re trying to do. That’s what they are trying to do. But when 6 billion humans are googling, who’s searching who? It goes both ways.

14:14~

So here are some technical terms, all three letter things. You will see lot more of, all these things are about enabling this ideas of linking to the data. So I give one kind of an example. There’s a billion social sites on the web. Each time you go to the, you can tell, … who you are, all your friends are, why she will be doing that? You should do that once, at least you should know all your friends are. So that’s what you want. All your friends are identified as carrying these relationships around.

14:42~

All these data about you should just be conveyed, you should do once, and that’s all. That should happen. And you should have all these networks all the relationships, speaking of these pieces of data. That’s where we are moving into where it sort of knows these things down to that level. Semantic Web, Web 3.0, Giant Global Graph. We’re kind of trying out what we wanna call these things. But what it’s doing is sharing the data. So you have to be opened to having the data shared, which is a much bigger step than just sharing the web page or computer. And all these things are gonna be beyond this, not just pages. They are things, everything we describe, every artifact or place will be a specific representation. We have a specific character that can be linked to directly. So we have this database of things. So there is actually fourth thing, we have not yet to get to, we won’t see next ten years or 5 thousand days, but I think that’s where we’re going to, and as internet of things where I am linking directly to the particular things of my seat on the plane, that physical thing becomes a part of the web. So we’re in the middle of this things in a complete lengh…down to every object of little …connection that it has.

12:38〜

We’re now entering into the third stage, which is what I am talking about. That is where we link the data. So i don't know the name of the thing I'm calling One Machine. But we're making data. We're going from machine to machine, the page to the page, and now data to data. So the difference is that rather than linking from page to page, we're actually going to link from one idea on a page to another idea, rather than to the other page. So every idea is basically being supported by every item. Every noun is being supported by the entire web, has been resolved at the level of items or ideas or words if you want. So they…physically coming out again into the ideas, it’s not just virtual, it’s actually going out to things. So something will resolve down to the information about a particular person. So every person will have unique ID. Every person, every item will have something, will be very specific that will link to the specific representation of that idea or item.

13:36〜

So now in this new one, when I would link to, I would link to my particular flight, my particular seat, and so give me example of this thing. A little Pacifica rather than, right now, Pacifica just serves a name on the web somewhere. The web doesn’t know that’s an actually a town, that’s a specific town that I live in. that’s what we’re gonna be talking about. It’s gonna link directly to, it will know. The web will be able to read it itself to know that actually is a place. And whenever they see the word, Pacifica, it will know that it is actually a place%$#$%certain population.

11:10〜

Now the second thing, they want to talk about is the idea of restructuring. What the web is doing is restructuring. And I have to warn you when we talk about is that I’m going to give my explanation of term of hearing which is semantic web. So first of all, the first stage we've seen in computer sys-in internet was that, there was gonna link computers, that's what we call the net. That was the internet of the nets, and be so that when you have all computers of the world. If you remember it, it was kind of green screen with carsors, and there's ...now...if you want to connect it, you connect it from one computer to another computer. And what you had to do is, if you wanna participate in, you have to share packets of information. So you're forwarding on, you didn't have control. It wasn't like a telephone system where you have control the line. It's shared packets.

11:56〜

The second stage, where we're in now is the idea of linking pages. So all..if i want to go on to an airline web page, I would go from my web page to FPT site, to another airline computer. Now we have pages, the unit has been resolved into pages, one page links to another page. If I wanna go into Book a Flight, i go into the airline’s flight page, the website of the airline, and I am linking to that page. And what we are sharing is links, so you have to be kind of open with the links. You couldn't deny, if someone wants to link to you, you couldn't stop them. You have to participate in this idea of opening up your pages to be linked by anybody. So that's what we're doing.

センテンスが赤字のところは聞き取りができなさすぎて、全く意味不明です。

9:52~
The media wants to be liquid. That's what you really want. The reason why things are free is so you can manipulate them enough so that they're freeze in the beer, freeze in freedom. And network affects rule meaning that more you have more you get. The first fax machine, the person who bought the first fax machine was idiot because there was nobody to fax to. But here she became evangelist recruiting others to get a fax machine because that made their purchase more valuable. Those of the fax, we’re going to see, attention is currency. So those laws are going to kind of spread throughout all media.

10:30~
And the other thing about this embodiment is that there's a kind we’d like to call ‘R... Reversal’. R... was saying machines are the extension of human senses, I’m saying, humans are not going to be the extending senses of the machine, in a certain sense. So we have trillion eyes, ears, touches through our digital photographs and cameras. We've seen the things like flicker where our Photo Synth, this program of Microsoft that allow you to assemble of you of a tourist place from the thousands of tourist snap shots of it. It is a certain sense this machine is seeing through the pixels of individual cameras.

今までTEDでのLecturerの中でもとび抜けて聞き取りづらいです。
That's why I am this slow!

8:55~9:52

A lot of people think about the new economy is, something was going to be disembodied alternative virtual existence, and that they would have old economy of atoms, but in fact, what the new economy really is the marriage of those two where we embed, the information and digital nature of things into the material world. That's what we're looking forward to. That is where we're going. This union, this convergence of atomic in the digital.
9:24
So one of the consequences of that is, I believe, is that what we have sort of the spectrum of media right now. TV, film, videos-basically becomes one media platform while there is many differences, in some sense, they're sharing more and more common with each other. So that the laws of media, such as the fact that copies have no value, value is in the uncopyable things, immediacy, the authentication, the personalization.
