On the morning of November 8, Sina Technological News reported that the Fifth World Internet Congress was held in Wuzhen. On the second day of the Congress, "Mutual Learning of Civilizations: Online Cultural Exchange and Sharing" forum, Zhou Yuan, the CEO, gave a speech.
Zhou Yuan mentioned that question-and-answer is the most basic way of human communication. Through question-and-answer, human beings exchange knowledge, experience and opinions about the world, and culture emerges as the times require.
Zhou Yuan said that it is not directly related to who the questioner is and how many fans there are, but whether the question itself needs to be answered. He believes that behind the questions, there may be many things, such as real curiosity, a person's interest, or problems that need to be solved in life or work, which have little to do with one's field, industry and status.
Everyone is equal in sharing knowledge, experience and opinions. The power of knowledge comes from the sharing of every ordinary person, and everyone deserves a reliable answer.
From Zhou Yuan's point of view, we can see that the Internet is not only a flow culture, fan culture and utilitarian culture, but also a more active network culture, which is constantly showing strong power. Young people can not only help each other, but also let each other through their own expertise. The Internet is full of more useful and valuable information to make the society better.
Zhou Yuan mentioned that today's Internet does not need more traffic, but better quality; today's Internet does not need more explosions, but more individuals to provide a stage for them; today's Internet does not need more voice, but more voice, so that serious voice is no longer drowned out.
Finally, Zhou Yuan talked about his understanding of "cyber culture". He thought that cyber culture might be a kind of subconscious in this era. "I believe that there must be something that everyone wants to encourage and develop from their hearts." (Li Nan)
The following is the full text of Zhou Yuan's speech:
Hello, everyone. I know Zhou Yuan. We know that, like this name, we are a knowledge sharing platform based on the Q & a community. Q & A is the most basic way of human communication. Through questions and answers, we exchange knowledge, experience and opinions about the world, and culture emerges as the times require.
Speaking of question and answer, let's first look at a question: What basic scientific breakthroughs will affect the Internet technology industry in the next decade? What changes will bring about the integration and innovation of industrial Internet and consumer Internet? What do you think of first when you see this question? What kind of person can answer this question? Internet practitioners? Or an expert in basic science? How can we get answers efficiently?
In fact, it was Pony's knowledgeable question two weeks ago, which triggered a series of butterfly effects that allowed us to see the future of humankind ahead of time like watching Matrix. At first, Rao Yi, a famous bioscientist and an active science popularizer like Heiberian, an excellent physics respondent, and Yang Feng, CEO of Tianyi Research Institute and space entrepreneur, analyzed it from the point of view of particle physics, brain science and space networking. Next, this problem quickly attracted many researchers from basic disciplines to answer. In their answers, data storage and transmission, artificial intelligence, quantum computer, 5G communication, battery technology and other hot keywords, some people began to answer from the perspective of unpredictable breakthroughs in basic science, technological anxiety of human development and so on. As the problem grows, more people in the industry join in the discussion. Practitioners in automobile, epidemiology, e-commerce, higher education, financial securities, environmental protection and other fields have come. People have begun to talk about agricultural upgrading, unmanned factories, unmanned cars and so on. Today, there are more than 3,300 answers to this question. The respondents come from 91 industries, and their answers are still influencing people in more industries.
Under this question, you can see a very interesting cultural phenomenon, many people from different backgrounds, many young people, even many students. Their discussion under this question and the leading figures of science and technology like Ma Huateng are "peers". You can raise yourself on such a question. The insights may be quite different from what you usually call "fans", followers of celebrities in social media.
Of course, you may think, because Ma Huateng's question, himself has a high reputation, so his question will receive a lot of attention. But in fact, we find that many of them are not very concerned and are not celebrity users themselves. Their real questions will also be discussed and answered from all sides of society. For example, this user named Yizhu, whose real identity is a writer of online literature, has also answered Pony's question this time. In fact, his previous question was, "What are the important qualities that can't be learned from reading?" "Nearly 15 million reading and 220 thousand people are more concerned than Pony.
As you can see, it doesn't matter who this person is and how many fans he has. In fact, it is closely related to whether or not the question itself needs to be answered. In fact, behind a question, may represent a lot of things, real curiosity, a person's interest, or life or work problems to be solved, and these things really have little to do with a person's field, industry and status. Everyone is equal in sharing knowledge, experience and opinions. The power of knowledge derives from the sharing of every ordinary person, and everyone deserves a reliable answer.
In this process, we can see that the Internet is not only a traffic culture, fan culture and utilitarian culture, a more active network culture is constantly showing a strong force, our young people through their expertise in knowledge, not only can help each other, but also make the network full of. More useful and valuable information to make society better. It's a culture of "earnestness wins." It's a culture of mutual help, common growth and the pursuit of new knowledge.
Let me share with you a very impressive event. Zhi Yu's questions are open and can be edited by the public. I found that a person often changed my questions. My questions were written incorrectly. She helped me to correct the wrong words. My questions were long and wordy, so she removed the rubbish. Always meeting in the question area, I decided at first that this person must be my own person, either a colleague or a group of relatives and friends. Not long ago, I learned that she is not a colleague at all, but a teacher who teaches primary school Chinese in an extracurricular training institution. She has been a volunteer in public editing since 12 years ago. Over the past 6 years, she has made more than 50000 public editors. Through the accumulation of her own language, she helps the questioners correct grammar, typos, expressions and other errors, so that a problem is easier to understand, so that the correct use of Chinese is known by more people.
This Chinese teacher is the representative of this culture. We hope that there will be more and more examples like Chinese teachers. Today's Internet does not need more traffic, but better quality; today's Internet does not need more money, but more individuals to provide them with the stage; today's Internet does not need more voice, but more voice, so that serious voice is no longer drowned out.
The network is a large space, not a large dye vat. I think that in today's rapid development of science and technology, every company and every social organization should be more clear about their position in the social process. For technology companies, more attention should be paid to the growth of Internet culture. I just asked a question a few days ago, "What are the contradictions between the development of technology and technology companies and society? How will the future be solved? "
I started my business in 2008, when technology companies were relatively small, and any small advances -- products, models or technologies -- were exciting and inspiring. Ten years later, the scale of technology companies around us is very large, which has deeply affected our work and life. At the same time, it has caused more worries and anxieties. The rapid development of science and technology companies in the past 10 years has played an important and positive role in the process of social development, but it has also produced many problems and contradictions. I think in the next stage, technology companies need to spend more energy to solve these contradictions, solve them, in order to produce greater value.
Finally, I want to say, what is cyber culture? I think it may be a subconscious in this era. I believe there must be something that we all want to encourage and carry forward. Let's return to the starting point of "technology makes life better", let's cherish the culture of mutual help, common growth and pursuit of new knowledge. Let's start again. Thank you!
