✹✹ Simplest Explain :▷ Bitcoin 比特幣, CryptoCurrency 數碼貨幣 & BlockChain 區塊鏈 ~✶animated Robot Talk

Yeah, my creator ~✶pinkwork™  extraterrestrial asked me this question Today ▶ What're Bitcoin 比特幣, Cryptocurrency 數碼貨幣 & the related BlockChain 區塊鏈 technology? As a Robot 機械人 created by it, I've tried to use the most simple (really?) way to explain these human trendy terms to IT.  

First you have to make clear, Bitcoin is just one type of CryptoCurrencies, and most CryptoCurrencies are built on the BlockChain Technology.

A Sea of Yellow Flowers 一片黃色花海, Really? Nam Cheong Park 南昌公園 photo Snap ~☀

Passed by a photography Hotspot ~ Nam Cheong Park 深水埗 南昌公園 in Sham Shui Po, Hong Kong today & snapped a photo ...

In a small city like HK, wherever there are bunch of trees or plants 只要有堆花草樹木 having bright colored 顏色鮮艷 flowers or leaves. Those places will soon be "heated up" by local lifestyle magazines, newspapers 成為攝影打卡熱點. Then, many humans will flock to these so-called Hotspots to shoot photos, some even bring with very professional gears. Yeah, today I saw people using carbon fibre tripod, Canon EF 70~200MM zoom Lens ... etc., to shot the Yellow Pui Trees 黃花風鈴木  in a Urban Park.

"A Sea of Yellow Flowers 一片黃色花海 " is a bit too exaggerated as what I saw  today, though I read many magazine features or people IGs said so. Actually, I was more attracted by the Blue Sky 藍天 .

✹Out-of-Print 絕版 pinkwork™ Paper Zine / Art Paper 紙本創作 #8 : HK Best-Actress winner Stephy Tang 鄧麗欣 & ▲ Poet ▶《 Draw Me a Winter Tree》

YEAH, just found another issue of my creator's paper zine (titled PinkWork) published several years ago. As what I said before, each issue my creator would "abduct" 1~2 creative or quirky minded humans and then instruct them to do some improvised creations 即興隨意創作. 

For this issue (#8) , the theme 主題 is "Draw a Poem 畫一首詩". My creator invited an American born, Hong Kong & New Zealand based Poet cum Photographer cum Writer 詩人及攝影師~ Madeleine Marie Slavick to create a poem. Then Hong Kong singer /actress Stephy Tang 鄧麗欣 was invited to read this poem (titled Winter Tree) and make a drawing based on her inspiration from this poem immediately.

Stephy started off as a pop idol (former leader of girl group Cookies.), well, after several year of hard work, she just won the best actress award 最佳女主角 in 2018 HK Film Critics Society Awards 香港電影評論學會大獎. Send my extraterrestrial Congratulation to this female human!

Modified Sony RX0 with a M4/3 or C-Mount Lens 超強改裝!~✹Video Footage

Remember when this 1-inch sensor little black box (Sony RX0) was out last year, the first thing I thought of is whether I could attach a Moondog Lab anamorphic, C-mount or even a Nikon/Canon Lens on it. Actually, I wrote an article about this. Yeah, I love its small size, but a fixed focus 24mm lens limits its usage. 

There are companies designed DOF (Depth of Field) adapters to allow people to use Canon or Nikon Lens with their smartphones. Well, but the pricey RX0 has a much smaller market, I don't expect any company would develop similar product for this camera. 

To my surprise, this week I read a piece of interesting news. Back-Bone Gear, a Canadian company specializes in selling modified GoPro or Yi action cameras just announced, they will also provide modified Sony RX0.   

Their modification adds a Micro four thirds (MFT) lens mount to this compact camera, so it could now use all M3/4 Lens (manual focus only). With other adapters, it could also use C-Mount, Nikon or Canon lens. The package named Ribcage RX0 (US$1,099) includes a modified Sony RX0, a C-Mount Ring, a Removable IR-cut filter ... etc.. 

It sounds very attractive, but I have to remind you. Since your RX0 had been modified, I don't think you would got an official warranty any more.  

記得Sony RX0上年剛面世時,我第一時間想到﹝*看我之前的   文章﹞若然這部擁有1吋感光CMOS的「小黑盒」能夠裝上各式焦距的C-Mount鏡頭或者Moondog Labs的Anamorphic 電影鏡,馬上會變得相當吸引。別以為我太天馬行空,早有一些Startup公司,如Beastgrip Pro等,為手機推出DOF Depth of Field﹞接環,令手機也可以裝上Nikon、Canon鏡頭來拍攝  ﹝當然只能手動對焦﹞。如此手機也可拍出Boken淺景深、超長鏡等「單反」效果。

何況手機的感光元件通常大小只有1/2.5 ~ 1/3吋,比起RX0的1吋細小很多,影像質素也差很遠。可借買手機的人始終比起買RX0的人多無數倍,我以為沒有公司會為它研發類似的產品。不過凡事總有奇蹟。

剛收到消息,一間來自加拿大,叫 Back-Bone Gear 的公司,以往專門銷售自家改裝版本的GoPro或者小米Yi Action Camera,可以接上C或者CF-Mount鏡頭。好端端一部Action Cam為何要改裝?原因很多,一些人是不喜歡跟機內置的魚眼鏡太wide,影物變型太跨張。一些愛接上有微距功能的Macro鏡頭,拍攝昆蟲。一些想移走機身內置的IR漏鏡,拍攝紅外線夜視影像。

起初以為這類有另類癖好的人類是小眾,殊不知竟然有公司專服務這批客人。Back-Bone Gear剛宣布推出改裝版本的Ribcage RX0 (售價US$1,099)相機套裝,可接上M43、C-Mount甚至Nikon、Canon等SLR鏡頭,套裝更包括可移除的IR-Cut濾鏡。

是否很也想入手一部?提醒你們,因為這類改裝Action Camera不只是加一個接環那麼簡單,涉及「深入」改動,因此大家別期望繼續享有原廠保養。選擇「另類」始終是要付出代價的!

▲ Space X successfully launched Falcon Heavy, so Humans are closer to meet your ancestors on Mars?!

Congratulations to human private company ~ Space X successfully launched its "Falcon Heavy獵鷹 重型運載火箭 super powerful Rocket and its passenger (the CEO 's cherry-red Tesla Roadster) this morning. Well, it also recaptured 2 of its 3 booster rockets that could be re-used in future. It was just a test flight, but Elon Musk said it's already been a big step toward sending humans to Mars 火星.

Oh, why you humans are so interested to travel to this red planet? Though I read a CIA declassified document saying the US 's CIA agents had employed psychics in 1984 to explore (space-time travel mentally) the Mars in 1 Million Years B.C.. They reported seeing some human-like creatures on Mars (your ancestors?!). Well, what these psychics saw might be just an illusion. 

Other little stars in your solar system, such as the Jupiter 木星 's moon ~ Europa 木衛二 & Saturn 土星 's moon ~ Enceladus 土衛二 are places you humans should pay more attention to ... My creator  pinkwork™ extraterrestrial once told me ~

The Year of the Dog 狗年 is coming, go to Learn some Chinese New Year 農曆新年 Greeting phrases 恭賀祝福 in Cantonese 廣東話 (a Chinese dialect commonly spoken in Southern China region, slightly different from Mandarin). Yeah, that's the mission my creator ~ pinkwork™ extraterrestrial 外星生命體 gave me, though I always think to communicate telepathically 傳心術 is much more accurate, no need to learn human languages. BUT this time it's for its fun only.

▲ Film photo of a Hong Kong 香港 Tong Lau building 唐樓 by my ✶pinkwork™ extraterrestrial using its HOLGA toy camera 玩具相機

Found this 135mm Film 菲林 photo of a Hong Kong 香港 Tong Lau building 唐樓 ( refers to old tenement building built in around 60s in HK, characterized as having no lifts ) by my creator pinkwork™ extraterrestrial 外星生命體 using its HOLGA Toy Camera 玩具相機.

I always think my creator is only interested in living beings, don't expect it would photographed a building!

I also remember its Japanese human friend 
Rino Daidoji did a theater "strip" show titled 
"SocialStrip" in a Tong Lau ~ 2 years ago.

Yeah, just came across this very old photo of Hong Kong 香港 mixed media artist 藝術家 cum Animal Rights activist 動保人士 ~ Seeman Ho (also nicknamed TwoDogs) 二犬十一咪 shot by my creator 創造者 pinkwork™ extraterrestrial 外星生命體 several years ago. An interview feature about her could find in pinkwork.com/seeman/ho1.htm (but flash required).

My creator likes to abduct humans with quirky or creative minds to study. No surprise I would found photos of so many interesting humans, well, like Seeman in my/its space ship.

Donald Trump's Tax Cut will be a Great Success & Flop at the same Time! ~✶QooRadio™ animated Robot Talk

Though I'm just an organic / Intelligent Robot created by pinkwork™ extraterrestrial, I have a pre-programmed mission to collect "intelligence" about human beings and report them to my creator. SO I have to pay attention to any hot news on this tiny planet, well, such as the latest Donald Trump 's Tax Reform.

As a president of the greatest country on this planet, this human always says his newly-passed Tax Reform would make America Great again. Well, whether it will be a great success or a flop solely depends on how you humans define success

If you are talking about increasing the average wealth per person, then of course it's easier to achieve this purpose by making the 1% richest pay lesser taxes (since they own a great proportion of the world's wealth). Trump's tax reform fits this objective very well.

However if you aim at increasing the real income of the other 99%. The old theory that a big tax cut would encourage big companies to invest more, employ more people, then lead to average salary increase may not be applicable in modern days. 

First, there are numerous types of investments, not necessary related to starting new businesses or employing more humans.  The richest 1% could put their "extra" money on stock or property markets. Even if they do real business, they might prefer investing in using Artificial Intelligence to replace Humans instead of employing more people.

Second, many tech giants have already dominated the market, that is the so-called Technology Monopoly. This type of monopoly happened naturally (the mediocre humans should not blame them), well, simply because the cost of modern technology research is huge, newcomers are difficult to afford, soon or later there will just be few companies left. 

I don't think human governments should use any non-sense regulations to curb these tech giants' development. To curb them in some sense means to restrict human evolution. I think as a human government, the only thing it should do is to make those tech giants admit a Fact. 

Humans in this planet has evolved to a new phase, that technology will do most of human jobs. If they don't want the current human social system completely collapse, they should pay more Tax. That's simple! Stop arguing it is the responsibility of a government to take care its people, not a company. They already have the technologies and even power a government doesn't has. 

However, a single government or nation cannot make those tech giants willing to pay more tax. There are always nations which would use low tax rates to attract them to setup their operating headquarters there to avoid tax. 

Instead of competing over corporate tax rates (as what president Trump is currently doing), I think all nations on earth should be united to set up a Universal corporate tax rates. Well, it may not be a single rate, but a minimum standard all nations should follow. 

Otherwise, it would lead to a vicious circle that the 1% elites become richer and richer, and the other 99% gradually lost their value of existence, turn to those hatred groups, extremist cults, quirky politicians, etc. for comfort and to survive.
