Just Another Runtime Typecasting

嗯,唐宗漢(Autrijus Tang)變成唐鳳(Audrey Tang)這件事已經是一年前的新聞了,不過最近我又得知另外一位社群開發者也是如此特別唷 :)
就是Beryl Project的Quinn Storm

(不知道Xgl / AIGLX / Compiz / Beryl是什麼的可以看這一篇

當初我在玩Xgl和Compiz的時候,就注意到Ubuntu上面有一個叫做quinnstorm的套件庫,比Compiz官方版本更新速度還快(當然問題也就不算少啦:p)

後來在收聽Novell Open AudioCompiz Gets Forked這一集的時候,發現講到Quinn都是說she網頁上也寫著(粗體為筆者所加):


Recently, a community developer named Quinn Storm announced that she would start a compiz-based fork project called “Beryl,” citing frustration with Novell regarding getting her code fixes accepted into the Compiz upstream source tree.


心想:「哇!又是一位女性社群開發者耶!」

過一陣子Linux Link Tech Show第173集訪問了Quinn Storm,我注意到她的聲音沒有很尖,也不太低沈,然後在該集的網頁我看到這一句(粗體為筆者所加):


58:30 - Quinn suffers from Asperger syndrome and is transgender, Quinn had a hard time growing up


後來又找到Beryl Project討論區她的自我介紹:(粗體為筆者所加)


Anything else interesting about you?:
I'm a transdyke, a lesbian trapped in a man's body. Yes I wish to be referred to in the female, yes I plan to go through hormones & surgery, no I don't like guys "that way", but big beautiful curvy girls should apply :-P


嗯,從這段她出席Ubuntu研討會訪談影片看來,Quinn真的還沒有去動手術......

==
Hats off to these two outstanding transgender people in our community: Beryl packager Quinn Storm and Perl hacker Audrey Tang!!

==
Can anyone guess why I picked "Just Another Runtime Typecasting" as the title?

    這個是一般人對於變性的認知有問題,並不是一個醜男送進手術室就可以給你一個大美女。變性手術只解決第一性徵(外生殖器),外表容貌聲音都不會因此而改變 :)

    用"Just Another Runtime Typecasting"做標題是出自於唐鳳的 http://pugs.blogs.com/audrey/2005/12/runtime_typecas.html

    in2,

    受教了 :)

    話說回來,妳那篇愚人節快樂,在這個脈絡下,還真是耐人尋味啊 XD

    另外,本篇的標題的靈感的確是來自唐鳳的那篇,不過,妳漏掉"Just Another"兩字在Just another Perl hacker這個脈絡下的意義,我只能算妳答對一半 :p

    嘖嘖,我竟然沒有注意到,真是大輸! XD
    關於某事我個人的看法是這樣,反正你永遠不知道那個是真是假,就算親眼見到也分不出是真是假,那幹麼管它是真的假的呢? XD

    花哈 XD

    另外一件事,那我就拿詩詞裡面(我所知道的)最有名的兔子組合來回應妳吧:

    雄兔腳撲朔 雌兔眼迷離
    兩兔傍地走 安能辨我是雄雌

    這兩隻兔,應該能夠尬贏BBS界的_天兔_吧 XD

    in2,

    難,難道還有人敢跟妳搶 BBS界_天兔_ 的位子嗎?
