Daily Thoughts 06/18/2012
This morning, I read some more of The Founder's Dilemma by Noam Wasserman. The author is writing about how there is often a change in CEO's when a company grows larger. The venture capitalist often insist on replacing people with more experienced professionals. This leads to either people leaving or taking downgraded positions.
I checked the displays and gifts this morning. I also updated the Twitter and Facebook accounts. We are having the start of the Adult Summer Reading Program on June 22, 2012. I also talked with colleagues about lost books and checking the African American section. I am thinking about doing a classic reading list for Between the Covers which is the title of the Adult Summer Reading Program.
In addition, I did a little bit more inventory in the mezzanine.
Three books came in for me to read, The Age of Zeus by James Lovegrove which is a variation on The Age of Ra about alternate history with the Greek gods, A Game of Thrones volume 1 by Daniel Abraham which is based on George R.R. Martin's book, A Game of Thrones, and Online Commuity Management by Deborah Ng. Online Community Manager is a relatively new profession in the computer world. It is a bit more than just social media. It includes blogging, message boards, social media, social media metrics, email lists, and a variety of other topics in a professional context.
