整本书分了很多小节,他的生平和后来的感悟我都很仔细看了,关于他对电脑的描写,系统的描写,恕我无能,我没有看下去,大概浏览了一下。认真看了70%。

最初是从一个书单上看到这本书,也被这个书名吸引,就看了,前面的三分之一让我看到了一个十分全面的geek,nerd形象,经常觉得好笑。以下是我的书摘及感受,分享给大家。

1.The first is survival , the second is social order, and the third is entertainment. Everything in life progresses in that order. And there is nothing after entertainment. So, in a sense, the implication is that the meaning of life is to reach that third stage. And once you've reached the third stage, you're done. But you have to go through the other stages
first.
所有的生命过程都是三个阶段:生存,社会交际,娱乐。

2.I'll give you a few examples so you can kind of get the idea. And the obvious one is sex. It started out as survival, but it became a social thing. That's why you get married. And then it becomes entertainment.
哈哈哈,这里极其形象,生存,社会交际,娱乐,比如sex。

3.Yes, you get sick of the winter darkness and taking off your shoes upon entering a house. But you can get a university education for free.
作者是芬兰人,他那个年代(七八十年代)大学教育就免费了。然后我想到了我们国家,希望可以早早实现教育免费。

4.In fact, some people suggest that the major reason for the required army duty is to give Finnish men something to talk about over beer for as long as they live. They all have something miserable in common. They hated the Army, but they're happy to talk about it afterward .
芬兰男人服兵役的现象,大家都不喜欢,但是,男人嘛,不喜欢服兵役,可是喜欢在喝酒时吹嘘一番自己当兵时如何骁勇善战啊。哎,男人的吹牛如同女人的八卦一样永久存在。

5.I don't know how to really explain my fascination with programming, but I 'll try. To somebody who does it, it's the most interesting thing in the world. It's a game much more involved than chess, a game where you can make up your own rules and where the end result is whatever you can make of it. And yet, to the outside, it looks like the most boring thing on Earth. Part of the initial excitement in programming is easy to explain: just the fact that when you tell the computer to do something, it will do it. Unerringly. Forever. Without a complaint.
Linus解释自己对写程序的痴迷,我大概是不能理解,但是我很敬仰痴迷技术的人,仿佛他们身上散发着光芒。

6.I sometimes lost sleep anticipating those meetings, hoping not to feel self-conscious about my lack of social graces or my nose or my obvious absence of a girlfriend. This is standard geek stuff.
真诚地表达自己不善交际,并且黑了程序员一把,说程序员没有女朋友是标配,呵呵哒。

7.Okay, maybe once a week a friend would knock on my window and if I wasn't scrolling through important code I would invite him in. (It was always a him-remember, this was before geeks were considered cool .)
Linus在投入写代码时,没有社交,如果有人敲门,当时他在写的代码不重要,他会开门,并强调,在大家不觉得程序员酷的时候,他的朋友肯定都是男的。哈哈哈,意思是,现在大家都觉得程序员酷了。。。

8.In order to hold a very strong opinion, you have to exclude all the other opinions. And that means you have to become unreasonable.

9.Most days I wake up thinking I'm the luckiest bastard alive.
我经常醒来觉得自己是世界上最幸运的混蛋,骂得好。

10.I hate it with a passion
喜欢这句话,没道理。

11.Have you ever stopped to think why dogs love humans so much ? No, it's not because their owners take them to the groomers every six weeks and occasionally pick up what they leave behind on the sidewalk. It's because dogs love getting told what to do. It gives them a reason to live.
为什么狗如此喜欢人类?因为人类告诉他们做什么。不太理解。

12.As a human,you're the leader of the pack and you're telling the dogs how they should behave. Following your orders is their passion. And they like it. Unfortunately, that's how humans are built, too. People want to have somebody tell them what to do. It's in our kernel. Any social animal has to be that way. It doesn't mean you're subservient. It just means that you are likely to go along with others when they tell you what to do. Then there are people with individual ideas, folks who have convictions in certain areas to the degree that they say, "No, I won't go along . " And these people become leaders . It's easy to become a leader. (It has to be. I became one , right?) Then, other people who don't have convictions in those areas are more than happy to let these leaders make their decisions for them and tell them what to do.
接上一段讲狗的,人也如此。有不同想法的人成为了leader,从众的人就是普通员工。好像是。

13.I'm very much against unnecessary rules imposed by society.

14.Success is about quality and about giving folks what they want. It's not about trying to control people.

15.Humans are destined to be party animals, and technology will follow.

16.What really matters when you talk about the future of technology is what people want. Once you've figured that out, the only remaining question is how quickly you can mass-produce the thing and make it cheap enough that people can get it without sacrificing anything else they want. Nothing else really matters .
未来科技什么样取决于人们想要什么。一旦你发现了,剩下的问题就是如何快速大量便宜地生产出来。

17."Will success spoil Linus (and/or Linux)? " Will I turn into a self-centered spoiled brat who writes books about himself because he likes seeing his name in print, and because it pays off his new useless car? The answer, of course, is yes.
很实诚。

18.And I, as a technologist, know that technology drives nothing. It is society that changes technology, not the other way around . Technology just sets the boundaries for what we can do, and how cheaply we can do it.
是社会改变科技,而不是科技改变社会。

19.you can fight it, but in the end the ultimate goal of life is to have fun. "
点题。
