I read a little bit more of No Shelf Required 2. I learned that the iPad was the easiest device to access e-books with. I know that there is a Kindle application for the iPad, as well as an app called Bluefire which lets readers read E-pub documents. Also, Overdrive has apps for the iPad as well. It appears to be the most versatile of both the E-readers and Tablets.
I also read a bit more in The Five O'Clock Club Job Search Workbook. I am up to the part where I am summarizing my interests and comparing them to different positions and companies. I also have started putting together ideas for industries to target.
In addition, I read some more of Consent of the Networked. The author is describing how the internet is being used as a surveillance tool for governments. Mobile phones are increasingly being monitored as well as web traffic. I personally follow the adage that if a computer is connected to a network, it is not secure.
I watched some more video training on Lynda.com focused on resumes, time management, and Dreamweaver. It is a slow steady process. I try and do a little bit each day. I am probably going to watch the video on effective meetings as well.
I read some more of Word Hero this afternoon. The author is describing how to use figures of speech in writing. He even has a blog called http://www.figarospeech.com Figures of Speech Served Fresh. It is enjoyable light reading.
I spent some time looking around the internet. I found a few small media companies that seem interesting The Atavist http://www.atavist.com which produces short form works for the Kindle and Snooth Media which is an epicurean site http://www.snoothmedia.com
Findings Turns Marginalia Into Discovery Engines
