WEST CHINA UNION UNIVERSITY - INTERIOR OF LIBRARY, Fred Rowntree & Sons Architects 1920
Daily Thoughts 02/14/2013
This morning, I checked the social media for the library. I also checked the displays and the gift books. I spent a little time checking the 900s as well.
Several books came in for me, Social Networking Business in a Week by Julien Sharp and Entrepreneur Press, Building Social Web Applications by Gavin Bell, and Designing for the Social Web by Joshua Porter. I also checked out How The Mind Works by Steven Pinker.
The computer lab was open today between 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. today. I have to turn in my vacation schedule soon. I am off next week.
I have started reading Designing for the Social Web by Joshua Porter. It is a bit different than what I expected because it includes the social properties of companies like Ebay and Amazon, not just sites like Flickr or Facebook. There is a real focus on exactly what makes a successful social site. One of the features described is having a very singular focus like shopping, photographs, or job hunting. Joshua Porter also tells us that the fastest growing technology companies are social and software is social because humans are social.
