社評 0502 王福生兄走了
昨天剛從國外回來，得悉媒體人福生兄走了， 心中一陣悲慟。 他是我們多年來的伙伴摯友，我常對他說 ：“你真行， 什麼集會你都知道。” 我常參一些社區活動， 經常見他手持相機並作現塲直播， 他所經營之网站 ，透過他一雙勤勞的雙手， 可謂享譽華人世界。
近年來， 由社會經濟和科技之巨變， 傳統和新媒體激起了巨大之變化。 全美各地之傳統中文紙媒已經所剩不多， 新社群媒體因應而生， 因而造就了許多自媒體。 王兄就是其中之典型， 然而， 如何爭取客戶廣告之支持能產生經濟效益， 維持生計也是一項挑戰 ，王兄放棄了自己之專業堅持做𠆤媒體人， 是令人敬佩之選擇。
在我們近二十多年之情誼， 他不但每周提供為美南日報社區畫頁， 並且經常為我們的活動做實況轉播， 有時我看見在報社大廳一幅疲備不堪之模樣， 我問他一切都好 ，他總是微笑以對。 如今他帶着多少人及無數讀者之思念， 走完了短暫的旅程 。
西去路遙慢步行， 從此天堂了紅麈 。希望你一路走好 ，你在新聞媒體事業中已經盡力了。
Brother Alex Wang Has Left Us
He Will Be Greatly Missed
I just came back from abroad yesterday and learned that Alex Wang has passed away. He has been our friend for many years.
I often told him that, "You are everywhere." I saw him on many occasions holding his camera and doing live broadcasts. The website he created through his hard work is very well known in the Chinese world.
In recent years, the changing of the social economic media and the new technology alongside traditional and new media have provoked great changes. There are not so many Chinese newspapers left in America. As a result, the new social media has evolved and been created accordingly, thus creating many self-made media people. Alex is one of them. However, how to survive financially in this time of media change is a very difficult task. Alex gave up his career as a computer professional and dedicated himself to being a full-fledged media person.
Over our friendship of more than twenty years, Alex not only provided photos for columns and articles in our daily newspaper, but also often broadcasted live for our events. Sometimes I saw him looking very tired. I often asked him, "Are you doing OK?"
Now Alex is gone. Many of his fans and friends will miss him very much.
Alex, we hope you will walk slowly forward to the west. From then on, it will be a paradise. We hope you have a good and peaceful journey. You have done very well and your very best on this earth as a first-rate media person.
