• auctions.yahoo and urbanization

    剛搬到板橋的時候,三號出口旁邊那條巷子一到晚上就黑摸摸的,除了巷子口有幾家小吃攤外,就只剩下巷子底開著幾家成衣外包與資源回收。有一天,看到巷子中間開了一家賣數位相機的小店,心想:「開在這,誰來買啊?數位相機不是應該開在博愛特區漢口街那,或是光華NOVA嗎?」誰知道一年後,這家店不但沒倒,反而越作越大,還賣起單眼鏡頭和相機包。

    一開始,我還真不明白他是靠什麼起家的,直到有次我在雅拍上頭看到這家店的廣告,我才瞭解:原來它是靠網拍啊。在DCView看測試報告、在雅拍上比價錢、到店內看實機,我想,這應該是很多人購買數位相機,甚至購買手機的方式吧?

    除了店家之外,每每在捷運站,我們可以看到更多像我們一樣的學生、上班族、家庭主婦,在站內或出口交易奶粉、嬰兒鞋、咖啡豆,甚至iBook(好啦,以上都是我交易過的商品),而我們似乎也習慣在雅拍上留言問道:「可以面交嗎?忠孝復興不出站?」

    詹宏志在《城市人》一書中曾經提及我們可以從便利商店開店速度(還是ATM?)來觀察城市經濟與空間的變化,而如今,網拍所帶來的改變, 似乎也方興未艾啊。

    最近看到一些研究在談「社會網絡網站」(social network sites)與都市化之間的關係,嗯,那雅拍也可以作為一種社會網絡網站嗎?

    • apophenia: social network sites: my definition

      11/11 22:18, 2006

      引述 :『A "social network site" is a category of websites with profiles, semi-persistent public commentary on the profile, and a traversable publicly articulated social network displayed in relation to the profile.』

      看起來是有意思的網路研究,不過,在台灣,那種網站類似myspace呢?

    • Edge Perspectives with John Hagel: Social Networks and Urbanization

      11/03 08:48, 2006

      引述 :『When you reflect on the three functions of social network sites described above – connection, creation and collaboration – it is useful to keep in mind the key insights of urban champions from Alfred Marshall to Jane Jacobs regarding the unparalleled ability of cities to create and nurture dense and productive networks of social relationships. These social relationships span significant edges – age, culture and vocational – just to name a few. The relevant edges are no longer on rural frontiers; they are deep in our urban fabric.』
