上集链接:从德铁说开去 – 第八集:1.9 亿人民币多不多? 首先修正一下上一集中用到的几个数据。算工程师人工时用的 800 欧元一天,跟外部雇佣的 consultant 价格接近。如果那些工程师是 Google 和德铁自己的雇员,应该不会那么贵了。至少要减一半吧。这样的话,第八集项目中总的人工成本应该接近 2000 万人民币。还有,德铁有自己的 raw data 格式。交给 Google 的不会是 Hafas 数据格式。 以下是第九集正文: 去年十月初的一天,我需要坐早班车去黑森州出差。火车晚点一个多小时,我就在火车站里的咖啡店吃了一份早餐,latte macchiato 和 croissant。一边吃东西一边看书,时间快到了就去站台等车。站台上遇到一位中国来的女学生,很有礼貌,细声细气地向我问车次和路线。我当然知无不言。她很小心地提醒我说,我嘴边有东西。怪我自己大大咧咧,吃完 croissant 也不记得抹嘴巴。连忙擦了擦嘴。她说,还是有,说着轻轻帮我抹干净。运气真的很好,没有让客户看到我满嘴酥皮的样子。这个女孩子 20 出头的样子,披肩直发,脸上有很精致的淡妆。说是去不来梅看同学,刚来德国不久,还看不懂德国的火车票,也不懂怎样在这里转车。样貌举止,真的没法叫人不喜欢她。年轻一代的中国大陆人,长辈们到处高声喧哗,或者仪容不整的特点已经少了很多。飞扬跋扈不懂礼貌的财主后代一定有,但是总的发展趋势是很好的。十多年前我刚到德国时,街上看到东亚人,还比较容易辨别是日本人还是中国人。一般日本来的女士妆容十分精致,衣着比较简约有质感。大陆人就没那么讲究了。现在不容易辨认了。很多中国大陆出来的年轻人,无论是仪容还是礼貌都很好。论时髦程度,上海北京出来的年轻女孩子,许多都很出挑,化妆和衣着已经是世界一流。年轻一代加油,爱心,公德,科研,工程,法理,财技,环保意识等等方面也不要输给人家太久哦!

从德铁说开去 – 第六集

从德铁说开去 – 第一集 从德铁说开去 – 第二集 从德铁说开去 – 第三集 从德铁说开去 – 第四集 从德铁说开去 – 第五集 上两个星期有为在 Darmstadt 的客户做事。Darmstadt 的火车站里有一架电梯,在月台和天桥之间上下。这架电梯通体透明。同样透明的电梯井的一面内墙上,在水平方向上装了四把小提琴。有一把琴弓垂直捆在活动的电梯壁的外面。 这样,电梯升降的时候,活动的琴弓就会擦到固定的小提琴的琴弦,奏出声响。小小的心思和投资,给众多旅客带来愉悦的意外。 当今世界,各行各业行事规则越来越细密,分工也越来越细。机构无论大小,常常会把许多专业性很强的工作,比如会计,IT,甚至企业流程管理,外包给别的专业公司来做。专业做 business service 的公司,就会派 consultants 到客户处服务。不少 consultants 一年到头都在路上。一般够实力的 consulting 公司,都会给员工坐火车头等舱出差的待遇。头等舱里宽敞舒适,可以干活,可以睡觉,所以许多 business people 喜欢坐火车出差。
