Desafio Devir #8

Uns trinta anos atrás, quando trabalhava na Unisys, a empresa resolveu contratar um professor para ensinar inglês a seus analistas de software. Era um jovem americano muito engraçado o que tornava a aula mais prazerosa.

Certo dia, o moço resolveu nos deixar uma tarefa para o fim de semana, uma redação com tema livre. Como teria dois dias inteiros para me dedicar ao projeto e a ideia de uma redação não parecia muito animadora, resolvi dificultar um pouco o trabalho. Decidi abrir meu dicionário de inglês e usar a primeira palavra da página sorteada na redação. Fiz isso dez vezes o que me obrigava a usar dez palavras escolhidas aleatoriamente (a maioria delas, eu nem sabia que existiam). Ficou bem mais interessante. Entreguei o projeto na segunda e, mais tarde, o professor me segredou que meu texto tinha duas palavras de que ele nunca tinha ouvido falar.

Alguns anos mais tarde descobri a existência do Oulipo (Ouvroir de littérature potentielle), uma associação de escritores e matemáticos de língua francesa (em sua maioria) que se propõem a criar trabalhos usando técnicas de escrita constrangida, ou seja, impor dificuldades adicionais à tarefa não muito simples de escrever. De certa maneira, uma versão sensivelmente mais sofisticada do que eu havia ensaiado alguns anos antes. A ideia é que essas limitações inspiram os autores a buscar novas formas e aguçam a sua criatividade.

Vamos voltar às técnicas do Oulipo no futuro. Por enquanto gostaria de propor a criação de um texto de qualquer gênero com dez palavras escolhidas aleatoriamente em um dicionário. Para tornar as coisas mais uniformes, proponho usarmos a sequência de Fibonacci para escolhermos as páginas. A série de Fibonacci é uma sequência de números na qual qualquer elemento é igual à soma dos dois anteriores. Ou seja, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610, 987…

Para tornar a brincadeira mais divertida, vamos espalhar as palavras pelo abecedário (quem sabe encontramos algumas mesmo interessantes). Podemos usar a primeira palavra das páginas

21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610, 987, 1697

Se seu dicionário não tiver a página 1697, comece com a sequência de páginas com o número 13 ou 8. Se ele tiver mais de um volume, considere a primeira página do volume 2 como a página de numeração seguinte à última página do volume 1. Você também pode começar da página 34, etc.

Os textos podem ser enviados para até o dia 24 de agosto. Pediria que os textos enviados trouxessem o nome do dicionário usado e que as palavras aleatórias aparecessem em negrito no texto para facilitar o trabalho de avaliação.

O melhor texto será publicado no blog e o vencedor receberá um exemplar do livro Yeshua Absoluto de Laudo Ferreira e Omar Viñole.

  47. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  48. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  50. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  52. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
