When I was young

When I was young, there was an amazing publication called The Whole Earth Catalog, which was one of the bibles of my generation. It was created by a fellow named Stewart Brand, and he brought it to life with his poetic touch .9

在我年轻的时候,有一本令人惊异的,被奉为我们那一代的圣经的出版物叫做《全球概览》。它是一个叫做斯图尔特·布兰登的同辈创作的,而且他用他诗意般的手法赋予了这本书生命。

我年轻的时候,有一本令人叹人观止的杂志叫做《全球概览》,那是我们这一代人的经典读物之一,他是一位名为斯图尔特·布兰德的人创办的,他以诗一般的笔触使它充满活力。

This was in the late 1960's, before personal computers and desktop publishing, so it was all made with typewriters, scissors, and Polaroid

cameras.8

这是在个人电脑和笔记本电脑出现前的二十世纪六十年代末,所以这本书全是由打字机,剪刀,和宝丽来相机制作出版的。

那是在二十世纪六十年代后期,个人电脑和桌面排版系统还没有出现,所以该杂志全是靠打字机、剪刀和宝丽来相机来制作。

It was sort of like Google in paperback form, 35 years before Google came along: it was idealistic, and overflowing with neat tools and great

notions.8

它有点像谷歌的平装本形式,比谷歌的出现早了35年:它是理想化的,而且充满了工整的压印图案和伟大的思想。

杂志有点像平装书摸样的谷歌,但比谷歌早问世了35年。这是一本理想主义的刊物,充满着精美的图案和了不起的想法。

Stewart and his team put out several issues of The Whole Earth Catalog, and then when it had run its course, they put out a final issue. On the back cover of their final issue was a photograph of an early morning country road, the kind you might find yourself hitchhiking on if you were

so adventurous. 10

斯图尔特和他的团队发行了一些《全球概览》的单行本,而然后当这本书正式发行的时候,他们发行了一本最终的版本。在这本最终版本的后封面上是一幅清晨乡间小路的照片,这就是那种如果你足够爱冒险便发现自己正搭便车旅行的小路。

斯图尔特和他的团队出版了好几期《全球概览》。在杂志完成其使命之时,他们

推出了最后一期。在这一期的封底上,是清晨一条乡间小路的照片,就是你敢于外出冒险时有可能搭上便车的那种乡间之路。

Beneath it were the words: "Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish." It was their farewell message as they signed off. I have always wished that for myself.

And now, as you graduate to begin anew, I wish that for you.10

这幅画下面是这句话:“求知若渴,虚心若愚。”这是他们作为结束的临别赠言。我一直都希望这句话我自

己能够做到。现在,随着你们毕业重新开始,我希望这句话能够给你们。

下面是一行字:“求知若饥,守(藏)拙若愚”这是他们为停刊而刊发的告别语。我一直以这个警句自勉,现在,在你们毕业开始新生活之际,我也愿以此与大家共勉。
