Daily Thoughts 03/27/2014
This morning I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library.
This morning, on the way to work, I read some more of the Second Machine Age. The authors are describing the winner take all phenomenon with digital technology. There is a concentration of wealth where the top companies can push out everyone else. The authors describe the distribution as like Pareto effect where 80% of the wealth in a digital industry tends concentrate in 20% of the industry. They are also describing how increasingly the middle class is disappearing as part of the process of a move to a digital economy.
April is National Poetry Month. I am going to do a display of poetry books.
The library budget vote is coming very soon. This is an article on the budget vote coming in the April Mount Vernon Inquirer by Tamara Stewart who is a supporter and patron of the library. It also includes information on how to become a library trustee.
I spent some time working with the oversize books. I also spent a little time working on scheduling and printed up some flyers for events.
Artswestchester was here tonight to talk about a Mount Vernon Arts Initiative.
