Daily Thoughts 03/07/2013

I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library this morning.  I also read some more of Al Gore, The Future. He is writing about changes in the balance of power worldwide.  Some of the changes include shifts of the worlds manufacturing base eastward to China and India and the increasing power of corporations.

I checked the displays this morning.  I also spent some time looking at books on .

The Big Data Revolution How Number Crunchers Can Predict Our Lives.
This book is something we ordered recently.  The title is Big Data A Revolution That Will Transform How We Live, Work, and Think by Viktor Mayer-Schonberger and Kenneth Cukier.

April 18, 2013 is National Poem In Your Pocket Day.  It is part of the National Poetry Month celebration.

Sometimes, you find something which has a better description than your own site, Bookcalendar 2013 
It even is by a librarian.  I rather like it.  I've read quite a few of the books that are listed.  It reminds me of the original idea of providing a kind of blog combined with a reading list and log.

The computer lab is open from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. today.
