別問我是誰!

自從中環博客專欄面世後,褟中怡才知道甚麼叫做壓力,編輯的奪命追「稿」call固然不好受,更令我不習慣的,是中環內外多個不同單位都正在尋找我的身份,例如職業、年齡及家庭背景等等。

實話實說,褟中怡只是一個筆名,不以真實姓名示人的原意就是希望避免麻煩,以免受到外界干預我的寫作風格,使我能夠把所知、所想,真實地與讀者分享。近日,從《am730》編輯部得知消息,多家不同機構(包括政府部門及上市公司)都向《730》打探我的真正身份。《730》社長盧先生更明言,日前與獅子銀行高層飯局時,對方拿出報紙向盧社長詢問,其實褟中怡與《730》早有協定,不會向外公開身份,故此在這裡再一次希望讀者們見諒,不用再尋找褟中怡的身份了。不過如讀者有任何問題或意見的話,仍可上網與我分享分享。

其實要隱瞞身份,對於一個投資專欄作者而言,也是十分痛苦的,友儕間每每在討論專欄的文章時,我都只有聽的份兒,盡量也不表達意見,以免表露身份,要知道投資、財經的圈子裡,永遠都是金錢至上,如果友儕間知道褟中怡的身份,日後或者會要求我寫一些並非我自己所願意寫的文章,如我寫到一些對某些公司負面批評的話,又必定會惹來麻煩,這都是我不情願見到的,故此我還是選擇做一個隱形專欄作者。

寫到這裡,又令我想起「深喉」(Deep Throat)的故事。引發「水門事件」、令當時美國總統尼克遜下台的記者線人「深喉」,33年來堅持隱暪身份,直至去年才被《名利場》(Vanity Fair),揭穿他就是美國聯邦調查局(FBI)的前副局長馬克‧費爾特(W. Mark Felt)。莫論費爾特當年把總統派人在美國民主黨總部水門大廈竊聽的情報,通報予《華盛頓郵報》的做法是否恰當,「深喉」對禢中怡的啟發是,爆料、撰文者身份根本微不足道,獨到而確實的內容,才是最重要的。

兩間蘋果的無厘頭官司

做大狀為何收入豐厚?其中一個原因是總會有人「為拗而拗」,對簿公堂,令打官司的最終目的令人費解。最近英國一單與蘋果電腦有關的官司,就係當中的表表者。話說樂隊披頭四的4位成員,當年成立了名為蘋果公司(Apple Corp)的唱片公司,這間公司的創立目的之一,是為了在英國推出披頭四的唱片。但他們當時不知在美國,有位叫Steve Jobs的人,在加州成立蘋果電腦,更搞到電腦、電影同音樂世界天翻地覆。

由於蘋果電腦的商標,以至公司名稱都同蘋果公司好似,結果蘋果公司在英國法院兩次告蘋果電腦。在1991年,蘋果電腦與蘋果公司達成和解協議,蘋果電腦不會參與音樂唱片的銷售。電腦科技在十幾年後已經發展到大家估唔到(在1991年,有誰會想到十幾年後,會有人帶住十幾GB硬碟周街走聽音樂?),iPod開始成為潮人玩意,而蘋果電腦就決定乘iPod的強勢,成立iTunes Music Store,在網上賣音樂。但披頭四的後人們卻認為,蘋果電腦侵犯了十幾年前的協議,結果這宗無厘頭官司,就這樣開始。

審理此案的法官頗為風趣,他認為以前兩間公司過往的協議,只規定蘋果電腦不可以藉CD或錄音帶來售賣音樂,但如果將歌曲錄入記憶卡,則只屬一堆data,故日前判蘋果公司敗訴。蘋果公司不服判決,聲言上訴到底。

蘋果公司為了這宗不知有何著數的官司,不但一直沒有讓披頭四的音樂在iTunes Music Store,供人們付費下載,還要斥資聘請一班御用大狀打官司,究竟為乜呢?

看了你被人竭力「起底」的苦惱,深感同情。

這種「起底」正是緣於目前香港中年管理人員對通訊科技的無知和不適應。網友的身分本來就不重要,重要的是發布的內容,而那些人偏偏要按照傳統思維,找出作者是何方神聖來評估內容的可信程度。

網上的情況不必如此。只要我寫的文章有水準,一樣可以建立聲譽和公信力,網友不必知道我的真實身分。在網上浮沉多年的年輕人都不計較,偏偏他們的父母輩已與時代脫節。這在政府官員之間尤其嚴重。他們都知道子女要上網,但卻不知道子女在做甚麼,甚至已經發展了「火星文」等獨特的網上文化和溝通方法。

雖然你寫的題材不是我喜歡看的類型,但也希望你繼續寫出好文章。

當然,那些中年(甚至老年)管理層要「起底」,未必是為了評估文章的可信程度,而是純粹出於「八卦」心理(所以我始終相信男人比女人更「八卦」,說女人「八卦」只是抹黑別人、抬高自己的心理轉移而已),又或者想揪出洩漏風聲的「罪魁禍首」而已。

香港的命脈就是掌握在這種人手裡。善自珍重。

我起初也以為原復生的真實身分將永遠成謎,但只要文章寫得夠好和有心人(尤以傳媒界為甚)肯追踪探究,始終會有曝露身份的一天(雖然蔡東豪是自我曝光,但我深信要找出原復生的真身也不是難事)。

褟先生寫的文章我每天都讀,閱讀次序謹次於施老闆的文章。在報章寫稿而不願被人得悉身份實在不易做到,尤其褟君的文章大有原復生風格,使股評文章變得易讀和有趣得多,在香港似乎頗有市場。而且褟先生的專欄文章更搭上網誌的列車,也為寫作添上「花臣」和生氣(在香港把中文專欄文章率先放上blog 的,方卓如大概是第一位)。

請褟先生要有「終有一天身分曝光」的心理準備。
