Daily Thoughts 12/30/2011
I have been reading some more of The Filter Bubble. Eli Pariser is describing how personalization can end up damaging a person by stereotyping them. Internet tracking cookies are used to profile a person and a person can be misinterpreted easily. There are also some rather scary things which he is saying like personalization can attempt to predict a persons politics, whether or not they own a gun, and their ethnicity. It is the exact opposite of anonymity.
This morning, I updated the Twitter and Facebook pages for the library and checked the displays. I also took some time to print some flyers for programs. I try and do this at the beginning of the month for the months programs.
I also spent quite a bit of time figuring out how to translate my schedule into Google Calendar. I put in two months worth of programs. It probably needs some editing and clean up. It is my first time doing this. I like the layout of the calendar.
