One More Thing Goes to the Web: Subway Ogling


AS a personal trainer, Ed Norman knows he has good biceps. But he didn’t realize they had their own secret admirers until he rode the London Underground earlier this year.

Thanks to a Web-trawling friend, Mr. Norman, 27, learned that his photo had been taken surreptitiously on the Underground and posted on a new Web site, TubeCrush.net, under the title “Popeye Guns!” There he was (“Popeye”) in a black T-shirt with bulging arm muscles, reading a newspaper.

Mr. Norman, who lives and works in London, was checking e-mail in bed with his girlfriend when he got the flattering news. “I think she was a little more freaked out about it than I was,” he said.

Equal parts photo blog, personal ad and online stalking tool, TubeCrush was started in London last spring as a place for Underground riders to upload and share photos of men on the train who caught their eye. (Yes, only men.)

Stephen Motion, 30, a sales manager, said he and his roommates started the site for fun. Within a few months, the press had seized on it, and the site was receiving thousands of unique visits daily.

The natural next step was New York. In July, they announced that they had created an M.T.A. version, SubwayCrush.net. Mr. Motion said it has 4,000 to 28,000 unique visits a day. Next year, the founders plan to add photos of women and a means for crushes to independently connect with admirers.

In some ways, the TubeCrush concept is the 21st-century incarnation of a lost variety of printed personal ad, in which people wrote seeking connection with that attractive regular at the bus stop or cafe. In 2000, Craigslist introduced its own free version, called Missed Connections, and it was only a matter of time before photos entered the mix, the perfection of the camera phone having made stealth photography especially easy. To unsuspecting subjects, an admiring photographer is as likely to be checking e-mail as snapping a shutter.
News reports have cited privacy concerns by some commuters. But the sites’ founders say they have received only 9 requests to remove photos from the London site, which has more than 650 posts, and 3 for New York, out of almost 200 posts.


Indeed, the camera phone — ubiquitous, nonthreatening — may have forced a cultural attitude shift, said Steve Smith, head of the photography department at the Rhode Island School of Design. Photographing and being photographed has become quotidian, and the number of his students who wrestle openly with privacy ethics is dwindling.

“My students today aren’t really as engaged by those questions or issues as they were back in the late ’80s and early ’90s,” he said. “It seems like it’s O.K. to take pictures of people again, in a way that it hasn’t been for a long time.”

Though “bemused at first” by the experience, Mr. Norman said, he quickly embraced his TubeCrush appearance. It has since proved a boon for his personal-trainer business. After he contacted TubeCrush,  the site posted a link to his Web site below his photo with the invitation, “if you want biceps as impressive as his, please check out his website.”

His new Twitter handle: PopeyeGuns.

One More Thing Goes to the Web: SubwayOgling
网络新花样:地铁媚眼

A
s a personal trainer, Ed Norman knows hehas good biceps. But he didn’t realize they had their own secret admirers untilhe rode the London Underground earlier this year.
身为一名私人教练,艾德诺曼深知他拥有一双漂亮的二头肌。但直到今年初他搭乘伦敦地铁的时候才发现,原来他的二头肌也有自己秘密的爱慕者。

Thanks to a Web-trawling friend, Mr. Norman, 27, learned that his photo had been takensurreptitiously on the Underground and posted on a new Web site, TubeCrush.net, under the title “Popeye Guns!” There hewas (“Popeye”) in a black T-shirt with bulging arm muscles, reading anewspaper.
多亏了一个在网络搜猎的朋友,27岁的诺曼先生才发现他曾在地铁被偷拍。照片被放在一个新的网站TubeCrush.net,并命名为“大力水手!”. 照片里的他身穿黑色T恤,露出凸显的肌肉曲线,正在看报纸。
Mr.Norman, who lives and works in London, was checking e-mail in bed with hisgirlfriend when he got the flattering news. “I think she was a little morefreaked out about it than I was,” he said.
居住并工作在伦敦的诺曼先生,在收到这恭维的消息时正和女友躺在床上查邮件。“我想她的反应比我还要害怕,”他说。

Equal parts photo blog, personal ad and online stalking tool, TubeCrush was startedin London last spring as a place for Underground riders to upload and sharephotos of men on the train who caught their eye.
(Yes, only men.)
TubeCrush既是相册博客,也是个人广告和网上跟踪工具。去年春天伦敦搭地铁的通勤者们开始用这个网上载和分享地铁里吸引他们眼球的男人。(是的,只有男人)

Stephen Motion, 30, a salesmanager, said he and his roommates started the site for fun. Within a fewmonths, the press had seized on it, and the site was receiving thousands ofunique visits daily.
史蒂芬莫申,一位30岁的销售经理和他的朋友因觉得有趣而创立了这个网站。几个月内网站因记者的追捧而获每日上千个独立的点击量。

The natural next step was NewYork. In July, they announced that they had created an M.T.A. version,SubwayCrush.net. Mr. Motion said it has 4,000 to 28,000unique visits a day. Next year, the founders plan to add photos of women and ameans for crushesto independently connect with admirers.
下一站很自然的便是纽约。七月份他们宣布创立网站的M.T.A(纽约大都会运输署)版本SubwayCrush.net. 莫申先生表示每天独立访问量达到4000-28000.接下来的一年,创立者们计划加入女人的照片和一种让倾慕者们可与其迷恋独立连接。

In some ways, the TubeCrushconcept is the 21st-century incarnation of a lost variety of printed personalad, in which people wrote seeking connection with that attractive regular atthe bus stop or cafe. In 2000, Craigslist introduced its own freeversion, called Missed Connections, and it was only a matter of time beforephotos entered the mix, the perfection of the camera phone having made stealthphotography especially easy. To unsuspecting subjects, an admiring photographer is as likely tobe checking e-mail as snapping a shutter.
某种程度上来说,TubeCrush的概念是多种印刷版个人广告在21世纪的具体形式,是人们对在车站或咖啡厅常见到的具吸引力的人寻求联络的方法。2000年,Craigslist(一家大型网上免费分类广告网站)引进了它自己的免费版,名叫错过的联系。而照片进入这类网站是迟早的事,照相式手机的完善也令随时偷拍更为容易。对于好的题材,一个令人倾慕的摄影师可能被拍的机会和他按下快门的次数一样多。

News reports have citedprivacy concerns by some commuters. But the sites’ founders say they havereceived only 9 requests to remove photos from the London site, which has morethan 650 posts, and 3 for New York, out of almost 200 posts.
新闻报道曾引述过一些通勤人士对隐私问题的担忧。但网站的创立人说他们的伦敦网站有超过650条发布,迄今只收到9个要求删除照片的要求;而纽约站的200条发布中只有3个提出删除要求。

Indeed, the camera phone — ubiquitous,nonthreatening — may have forced a cultural attitude shift, said Steve Smith,head of the photography department at the Rhode Island School of Design.
Photographing and being photographed hasbecome quotidian, and the number of his students who wrestle openly withprivacy ethics is dwindling.
确实是这样,照相式手机-其无处不在和无威胁性的特征-可能正在改变一场文化的态度,Rhode岛设计学校摄影系主任史蒂夫史密斯说。拍照和被拍照每天都在上演,而他一些曾经公开抗拒隐私道德规范的学生数量也在减少。
“My students today aren’t really asengaged by those questions or issues as they were back in the late ’80s andearly ’90s,” he said. “It seems like it’s O.K. to take pictures of peopleagain, in a way that it hasn’t been for a long time.”
“现在我的学生们对这些问题不那么关注了,好像又回到了80年代末和90年代早期一样,”他说,“似乎拍下别人的照片又变成可以的事情,这种情况已经好久没再发生了。”
Though“bemused at first” by the experience, Mr. Norman said, he quickly embraced hisTubeCrush appearance. It has since proved a boon for his personal-trainerbusiness. After he contacted TubeCrush,  the site posted a link to his Web site below his photo with the invitation, “ifyou want biceps as impressive as his, please check out his website.”
尽管被这次经历搞得一开始有些困惑”,诺曼先生说,他很快接受了他在TubeCrush的形象。这也令他的个人教练事业受惠。在他联系TubeCrush网站负责人之后,网站在他的照片下张贴了诺曼的网站链接,并附一条邀请,“如果你也想拥有像他一样诱人的二头肌,可以浏览他的网站。”

His new Twitter handle:PopeyeGuns.
他推特(围脖)的新名字:大力水手

对于毫无戒备的被偷拍者,无法分辨一个心生爱慕的偷拍者是在按快门还是在查看邮件。as likely to be checking e-mail as snapping a shutter.是指既可能是在按快门,也可能是在查看邮件。  发表于 2011-12-6 10:09
trawl是搜寻的意思,这里是指一个善用网络搜索的朋友。如trawl the web for sth是在网络上搜索······  发表于 2011-12-6 09:51

One More Thing Goes to the Web: Subway Ogling
上网又多了件事儿:地铁传情

AS a personal trainer, Ed Norman knows he has good biceps. But he didn’t realize they had their own secret admirers until he rode the London Underground earlier this year.
作为一个私人教练,爱德.诺曼知道自己有着强健的肱二头肌,但他根本没意识到肱二头肌居然有一批秘密的仰慕者,直到今年初当他乘坐伦敦地铁的时候才发现.

Thanks to a Web-trawling friend, Mr. Norman, 27, learned that his photo had been taken surreptitiously on the Underground and posted on a new Web site, TubeCrush.net, under the title “Popeye Guns!” There he was (“Popeye”) in a black T-shirt with bulging arm muscles, reading a newspaper.
感谢一个搜索网络的朋友,27岁的诺曼先生才得知自己的照片已经被秘密放到了地铁上,并被贴到了一个新网站TubeCrush.net上,在标题”(大力水手)波沛开火了!”下方照片里,他强壮的上臂肌肉包在黑T恤里, ,读着一张报纸,化身成了大力水手”波沛”.

Mr. Norman, who lives and works in London, was checking e-mail in bed with his girlfriend when he got the flattering news. “I think she was a little more freaked out about it than I was,” he said.
诺曼先生在伦敦工作和生活,有天当他正和女朋友躺着床上查收e-mail时,突然他看到了奉承他的消息.”和我相比,我想她肯定有些吓坏了”, 他说.

Equal parts photo blog, personal ad and online stalking tool, TubeCrush was started in London last spring as a place for Underground riders to upload and share photos of men on the train who caught their eye. (Yes, only men.)
相片博客,个人广告和在线跟踪工具, TubeCrush网站始于上个春季伦敦,为地铁乘客们提供了一个上传和分享地铁上那些吸引人眼球的男人相片的空间.(是的,仅仅只是男人)

Stephen Motion, 30, a sales manager, said he and his roommates started the site for fun. Within a few months, the press had seized on it, and the site was receiving thousands of unique visits daily.
斯蒂芬30岁,是一名销售经理.他说他和室友们最开始玩这个网站是为了好玩.几个月内,媒体攫获了这个网站,之后每天都有几千的单独访问量.

The natural next step was New York. In July, they announced that they had created an M.T.A. version, SubwayCrush.net. Mr. Motion said it has 4,000 to 28,000 unique visits a day. Next year, the founders plan to add photos of women and a means for crushes to independently connect with admirers. 纽约自然是下一站.七月,纽约人宣布他们创建了一个新MTA版本,即SubwayCrush.net网站.Motion先生称该网站拥有每日4,000 到28,000的单独访问量. 下一年,创建者们计划放上女人相片,并为那些迷恋的人提供一种与仰慕者们单独联系的手段.

In some ways, the TubeCrush concept is the 21st-century incarnation of a lost variety of printed personal ad, in which people wrote seeking connection with that attractive regular at the bus stop or cafe. In 2000, Craigslist introduced its own free version, called Missed Connections, and it was only a matter of time before photos entered the mix, the perfection of the camera phone having made stealth photography especially easy. To unsuspecting subjects, an admiring photographer is as likely to be checking e-mail as snapping a shutter.
在某些方面, TubeCrush概念是21世纪各种印刷的个人广告消失的一个典型,2000年,克雷格清单网站退出它自己的一个免费版本,叫”忽视关系”, 相片进入分类网站只是个时间问题,完美的带相机的手机已经使得秘密拍照尤其容易.对那些未产生怀疑的被拍者来说,一个令人赞赏的摄影师很有可能一边查着邮件一边已经按下了快门.

News reports have cited privacy concerns by some commuters. But the sites’ founders say they have received only 9 requests to remove photos from the London site, which has more than 650 posts, and 3 for New York, out of almost 200 posts. 新闻报道已经引用了一些通勤者的对隐私问题的担忧.但这些网站的创始人称仅仅只收到9个要求从伦敦网撤掉照片的要求,已经引发了650个帖子,3个帖子来自纽约,接近200个帖子.

Indeed, the camera phone — ubiquitous, nonthreatening — may have forced a cultural attitude shift, said Steve Smith, head of the photography department at the Rhode Island School of Design. Photographing and being photographed has become quotidian, and the number of his students who wrestle openly with privacy ethics is dwindling.
事实上,带相机的手机-无处不在,没有威胁的-可能已经胁迫了文化态度的转移,史蒂夫.史密斯说,他是罗德岛设计学院摄影学院院长.拍照和被拍已经变得司空见惯,他那些为了隐私道德问题而公开较劲的学生数量越来越少.

“My students today aren’t really as engaged by those questions or issues as they were back in the late ’80s and early ’90s,” he said. “It seems like it’s O.K. to take pictures of people again, in a way that it hasn’t been for a long time.”
”今天的学生们并不像80年代后期和90年代早期时那样真正参与那些问题或争议”, 他说,”给其他人用不太长的时间拍个照似乎是OK的.”

Though “bemused at first” by the experience, Mr. Norman said, he quickly embraced his TubeCrush appearance. It has since proved a boon for his personal-trainer business. After he contacted TubeCrush,  the site posted a link to his Web site below his photo with the invitation, “if you want biceps as impressive as his, please check out his website.”
尽管”一开始感到困惑”,诺曼先生说,但他很快拥抱了自己在TubeCrush上的形象.它已经给诺曼的私人教练职业带来了回报.在他联系TubeCrush之后,该网站在他的照片下放上了他的个人网站链接作为邀请,”如果你想要和他一样的肌肉,那就访问他的网站吧.”

太感谢版主的点评了!
To unsuspecting subjects, an admiring photographer is as likely tobe checking e-mail as snapping a shutter.
这句后半部分是明白的,就是不太懂为什么前半句要用to呢....感觉不是要for的@@

web-thrawling google了有这个词,而且还有人写论文,但没仔细看也没了解它的内涵意义,版主解释善用网络搜寻感觉恰到好处!

同组的次第花开童鞋,说说我的理解 equal parts google也有很多,表面就是等分,实际表达的意义就是后面的那些都是tubecrush的作用,例句比如He is equal parts a friend, a mentor and a teacher.

9 requests to remove photos from the London site, which has more than 650 posts

and 3 for New York, out of almost 200 posts.
这样断开看就很容易理解了。伦敦网站超过650个post里面有9个request。而纽约站有接近200个post里面有3个request。
