Daily Thoughts 1/19/2011 (What Technology Wants, Metadata)

Daily Thoughts 1/19/2011

I read some more of What Technology Wants by Kevin Kelly.  There is a bit of intellectual daring.  Kevin Kelly addresses the thoughts of the Unabomber, Ted Kaczynski.  This was quite different.  He also discusses how the Amish choose to use different technologies. I found this to be a different approach.  I like the idea of being selective on how you will use technology.  It gives a better sense of direction in daily life. 

We had our first order meeting for the year today.  It went fairly smoothly.  I also had a meeting for the Graphic Novels Club.  Today is the day they are giving the Regents exams for the high schools so not a whole lot of people came.  There were a few people.  As always people also took out some material.

The book, Cowboy Angels by Paul McAuley came in for me to read.  It is an alternate history novel.

Two more books came in that deal with information, Online Community Information by John C. Durrance, and Karen E. Pettigrew, and Metadata Fundamentals for All Librarians by Priscilla Caplan.  It is going to be a chance to learn a few new things.
