不是年轻人丧,只是年轻的自己丧

Makers and Innovators - creating the space for our dreams

提起“梦想”,你会想到什么?

是小时候的作文,“我长大了要做个科学家”?

还是“得其大者可以兼其小”的中国梦?

What comes to mind when you think of dreams?

Do you think of the American dream?

Is it that childhood essay where you wrote, "my dream is to be a scientist when I grow up"?

加了无数的班,刷了N页的朋友圈,吸吸猫,吃吃鸡……

偶尔也会问自己吗

——我的梦想是什么?(@汪峰老师)

Everyday we go to work, share some Tweets, take care of our pets, play some games, and so on. Do you ever have the time to contemplate what your dreams are?

在现实的高墙面前,很容易觉得梦想很远,

似乎眼前的苟且与诗和远方之间隔了无数个明天的苟且……

It may be easy sometimes to feel like our dreams are unreachable, because we are too busy with our daily, routine lives to make leaps towards them.

在教师节之际,马老师宣布即将归队了。回首N年前,如今健硕的阿里巴巴曾经也只是一个18罗汉的团队。不管是阿里巴巴,还是“乡村教师”,都是他的梦!

On September 10th, Teacher's Day, Jack Ma announced that he plans to retire in two years to become a teacher again. His famous e-commerce company, Alibaba Group was once a team of 18 members. He was able to achieve his dreams, both of Alibaba and of becoming a teacher again after so many years.

上个周末,马老师的“淘宝造物节"也在西湖造梦了,这个梦属于稚嫩的面孔,活力的青春,也属于超酷的爷爷奶奶……

Last weekend, Alibaba's Taobao Maker Festival nurtured and sparked a lot of dreams for the festival attendants at West Lake. All the young, old, local, and foreign people were provided with plenty of space to dream at the festival.

在我们的展位上亲眼所见:每一次每个人戴上小米头显,都如同回到了童年,惊奇地张望着VR里的新世界,俯瞰整个湖面的荷花、探寻山那边的风景……

That is exactly what we witnessed in our booth! Whenever the participants dove into the VR world in the Mi headsets, it was as if they were becoming children again, curious about the aerial views of the lakes and the mountains.

人也沉浸在镜头里的世界,随之不由自主地360度旋转着转椅,生怕错过了一个角落、一处细节。

They rotated involuntarily on swivel chairs with the 360-degree VR sceneries, so that they wouldn't miss any details.

是创造力,让所有人大开眼界,在心中埋下了梦和想象的种子。这些所有年轻的造物者们,不是为了炫耀的猎奇,不是做作出来的“童真”,只是带我们回到好奇的本真状态,去拥有当下的真实感受。

It is creativity, expanding everyone's horizons and planting the seeds of dreams and imagination in their hearts. All of the young innovators and creators are enabling the space for us to step back, and return to our natural curiosities, enjoying the freedoms of dreaming.

梦想是一条很长的路,它不是一张地图,可以按图索骥,但是头顶的星空决定了脚步的方向,清醒而执着地脚踏实地不是圆梦最快的路,但却是唯一的路。

Dreams do not come equipped with guides that can show you the way. Instead, they often come with long and rocky paths towards achievement; however, the inspirers from which our dreams are born will lead our journeys. Being awake and diligent is not necessarily the fastest, but the only way to achieve a dream.

谈梦想不是毒鸡汤,夜深人静的时候我们常常会试图寻找心中的方向。

梦想可以很大,比如成为一个万能的淘宝,比如去探索虚拟与现实之间无穷尽的可能性;也可以很小,比如一个有阳台的小房间,一次带父母的海外游……可以镇臂高呼“我要成为什么什么”,也可以没人知道它的存在,甚至没人知道你实现了它。

Dreams can become greatness, such as creating something as big as Taobao or Alibaba, or exploring the infinite, undefined possibilities between the virtual realm and reality. Dreams can come in various sizes, such as a small room with a balcony, or an overseas tour with your family. With your determination, you can let the world know what your dreams are, or you can keep them a secret, but no one will ever know until you take the leap.

如何不负“月亮”不负“六便士”?丧归丧,不耽误我们燃起嗨点造起来!

If you look hard enough, you can find your perfect balance between the dreams of your future and your current reality, just like the makers at the Maker Festival.

戴上小米VR一体机,发现不一样的“造物节”,做自己的造梦者!

Put on a Mi VR headset and meet the innovators of the Taobao Maker Festival.
