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.”
