Daily Thoughts 07/03/2014
I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library.
I have been reading more of The Zero Marginal Cost Society by Jeremy Rifkin. The book is describing the rise of modern capitalism from feudalism to mercantilism to capitalism. I am rather enjoying the description of how the steam powered press and the railroads helped create the top down hierarchical modern corporation.
I read some more of A Brief History of Seven Killings by Marlon James. I rather like some of the descriptions of the rude boys and the Jamaican gangsters. The names are interesting; Josey Wales, Papa Lo, and Weeper. Josey Wales is a reference to the Clint Eastwood film, the Outlaw Josey Wales. Clint Eastwood is very popular in Jamaica. Ska and reggae take some of their inspiration from spaghetti westerns.
I am starting to watch Lynda.com for the training videos.
