471 • 19.1.2016 1 471 編見 新的一年,新的學期,學生重返校園,也帶回很多故事。今期我們挑了兩個以饗讀者。 劉巡未進大學前已開展自己的生意,他向《中大通訊》介紹他其中一間新創公司Panjury,以一 個網上平台收集及歸類為人忽視的網路評論,藉以量化及衡量公眾意見,別出機杼。他也對 有意創業的學弟學妹提出寶貴建議。 今期另一位男主角是身為計量金融學學生卻鍾情崑曲的陳鍵漳(右圖)。他參加了和聲書院辦 的崑曲班,而且顛倒雌雄,研串崑旦。〈口談實錄〉告訴你他如何「上癮」成她,還有他從崑曲 班得到甚麼。 〈說東道西〉的作者繼續在浩瀚的文字大海裏搜證,今期對準近代中文裏的外來詞,有些甚至 是不少人都不意識到是借來或譯來的,讀者必可從中得到一二點新趣舊知。 〈財金淺趣〉的作者,有時對過於技術性的分析也會束手無策,幸得財務處一位同事相助,得 以釐清一些投資模式及回報數據的想法。說來神奇,了解多了,心裏也踏實多了。 Editorially Speaking New Year. New Term. Students repopulate the campus. In this issue we present the stories of two students who may be as diverse as any two you come across in an ordinary school day in the school bus. Jeffery Liu had one foot in the world of entrepreneurship even before he entered university. He talked to the Newsletter about one of his startups, Panjury, which organizes web comments, considered the flotsam and jetsam in the seas of information, to derive measures of public sentiment. He also has a few tips for schoolmates who may catch the fast train of startups someday. The other leading actor in this issue is Kinson Chan ( right ), a quantitative finance student who takes a near-professional interest in the ancient art of Kunqu . He took advantage of the Kunqu training offered by Lee Woo Sing College and opted for the leading actress role. ‘Viva Voce’ tells you how Kinson got ‘addicted’ and what he got out of the classes. Our Chinese scholar continues his detective work in the sea of contemporary Chinese. His magnifying glass is trained on loanwords which most of us may have taken for granted. Readers will surely learn a few things about a few words. Financial technicalities are usually not too friendly to the writer of ‘Financially Friendly’. With the help of a colleague friend from the Bursary, he is able to tease out a few things about investment patterns and ways of handling returns figures. Strangely, a little peace of mind comes with the writing. 19 • 1 • 2016 目錄 CONTENTS 2 特寫 Feature 創業要趁早 Young and Enterprising 4 . . . 校園消息 Campus News 6 財金淺趣 Financially Friendly 6 說東道西 7 宣布事項 Announcements 8 口談實錄 Viva Voce 三十而立 Standing Firm at 30 中大逸夫師生校友本月忙個不停!書院自成功挑戰健力士世界紀錄,成為全球一小時內回收最多玻璃瓶的團隊後,1月22日又將舉行院慶晚宴,共同見證 逸夫三十周年的大日子。圖為逸夫書院輔導長梁耀堅教授。 What a busy and festive month it has been for Shaw College at CUHK!
