Daily Thoughts 01/07/2013
This morning, I read a little bit more of How To Create a Mind. There was a little bit on how people are more conscious when they decide not to do things. A lot of the thought that goes into automatic decisions and habits is not conscious. By choosing to not do things we are acting with greater consciousness.
I checked the social media accounts for the library this morning. I also spent a little time checking the new books and the displays. A banner is being put in for the January is National Tea Month display. We are also pulling some of the older titles from the new books. I also checked the news for the current events display.
I put the book Agile Project Management for Dummies by Mark C. Layton on hold.
I finished reading How to Create a Mind today. The author has some very interesting ideas on the progress of computers and how artificial intelligence will develop. Quite a bit of it is very philosophical. I found the book to be very informative. There were a lot of little details in the writing which were fascinating. I like the idea that there will soon be three dimensional computer chips.
