follow up post on the Zhuhai TED salon

We had a small salon last night in the beautiful city of Zhuhai. Initially, we had plans for translate@thon in mind. But the majority of the audience – all of them students – didn’t bring in their laptops, or to be more exact, they do not own a laptop. Thus the translate@thon event could not get started.

But things were far better than we thought.

There were roughly twenty students coming to this event. Most of them English majors in the university. They were mostly intrigued and inspired by the TED idea and would like to get to know more.

Thus we talked in an informal fashion on the topic of TED for quite a while and then dived into a live screening of TEDTalk by Nicholas Negroponte on the idea of One Laptop per Child and the progress they’ve made so far. Watching such an inspirational talk by a visionary like Nicholas was a truly first-time ever experience for most of the students. They were anxious to know more, and I tried my best to give a detailed background introduction to the whole project.

Though we didn’t embark upon any serious translation projects in our first-ever meetup, we did make a commitment to give the translate@thon idea a try in the following weekend. Date for the first REAL translate@thon is May 24 in the Zhuhai campus of Sun Yat-sen University, starting from 10 in the morning and will last until 5 in the afternoon. Feel free to join us and let’s get the ball rolling!

translate@thon for TED

Inspired by the translate@thon events in the free software world, I recently came up with the idea of introducing the translate@thon concept into the field of knowledge mining.

The idea is, we will invite some people into a room, get them familiar with the idea of TED and the concept of translate@thon, then we will kick off and immerse ourselves in the ecstasy brought about in all these brilliant TEDTalks and possibly have our brain blown away by the talks. But that’s not our goal. Our goal is to put the talks into Chinese and help blow away people’s brain through translating!

Admittedly, this is no easy task. But it is something that deserves time and effort. One man’s effort might be small, but collectively, we can make seemingly things happen. As has been observed by Margaret Mead, “Never doubt that a small group of dedicated people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

TEDtoChina: a brief overview

We started TEDtoChina back in October, 2008. It was an idea from Tony Yet and Oliver Dingback then to make the TED message heard among the 1.3 billion plus Chinese speaking folks in the world.

We got a kick start with some 20 pieces of Chinese translations of TED presentations and have since grown into a robust community of TED fans all around China. This is a big boost for us, and also a reflection of love for TED among many Chinese. Thanks, TED :-)
