Feel the momentum

多読本貧乏、ebook貧乏、そして今やアプリ貧乏になりつつあるというのに、
ずっと多読の魅力を語ってきたこの10年間。
いったいどこからそのパワーが湧いてくるのだろう~。

それは、時代のmovementを肌で感じるから。
この動画と同様なことが、日本のそして世界の語学教育界に起きていると信じているから。

日本の狭い英語教育の世界で、相変わらずな単語熟語暗記、和訳、
といった授業を続けている先生は気づいていないかもしれないけれど、
そういう先生たちは、この動画で言えば座り続けている側になるのですよ。

のほほんと大勢の側にいると安心して、座り続けていたら。。。
Huh?なんか座ってる人、少なくなってない??と気づいたときには、
あなたはマイナー側?!
ドンちゃんやってるバカな集団と笑っていた人たちが、主流になり、
逆に、まだ座ってるよーあの人、と、今度は笑われる側になるかもしれないのですよ?!

lone nutやtwo nutsがridiculeされる段階はもうとっくに過ぎています。
私たちのようなcrowdが形成され、
そしてmomentumなtipping pointがもうすぐそこに迫っています。

あなたもそろそろ重い腰を上げて、私たちと一緒におどりませんか?
そのすがすがしさは、例えようもないほとaliveです。

  1. 'The credit should go to the first follower, who transformed the lone nut into a leader.' I liked it! I cannot be a leader, but maybe at least I can stand up and join the movement. :) 最高だね!

  2. Yes, yes! It's so much encouraging, isn't it? I felt like it was made just for me. I'm often said I'm an oddball or indifferent to the main streams and every time I got those careless but poignant words, I was hurt and wondered I should kill my own true feelings and ideas and better to follow others...
    But now, I have nothing to worry about. There should be someone to be ridiculed to make a movement and I'm gladly to be the one. ^^

  3. Yay to the quirky spirits!
    One of my very very quirky mate once said "I always want to sit at the edge of the society and observe what is going on, not as an outsider but as a member of the society." And I got Aha! moment when he told me this.
    I thought to myself, 'That's it! That's what I wanted to say!' Low profile is the key I thought to lead a peaceful and stress-free life but having watched this vid, I think being in a center of public eyes ain't so bad if you can share the pleasure you are having :-)

    Thanks!!

  4. I used to be one of the people who rather choose to watch others from outside a close community and judge them with critical mind but say nothing. I thought it was useless and time-consuming if you try to change others to think or behave. But as I get older, I was fed up with such an observant attitude of myself and now wonder if I should once live my life totally honest to my feelings. People might not agree with my doing and say many harsh words, but what's wrong with that? There is nothing to lose. I rather be quirky than ordinary. ^^
