Daily Thoughts 10/24/2012
It was quite interesting going to the Big Data Meetup. It was very different from what I expected. I am still pondering what I am going to say about it. I'll probably have to do a bit of research before I can fully explain what I saw.
This morning, I checked the Twitter and Facebook account for the library.
On the way to work, I read some more of Online Reputation Management for Dummies. There was a recommendation for the book, The End of Business As Usual by Brian Solis which I checked out from our new books section.
I checked the displays and the gift books. A copy of Baker and Taylor Forecasts came in for me to read.
The computer lab was open between 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. today.
I spent some time looking through lists of missing and lost items. I am probably going to reorder some material. I have been focusing on fiction initially; popular authors like Mary Monroe, Carl Weber, James Patterson, Nora Roberts, and Jodi Picoult.
On the way home, I read some more of Online Reputation Management for Dummies. I was especially interested in what the author had to say about images and photographs and how to use Flickr. I also read a bit more from On Politics. The author, Paul Ryan, is moving from Socrates to Aristotle. I find some of Aristotle's views on women, politics, and slavery to be distasteful.

I rather like Bookriot which was mentioned in this article.
