Daily Thoughts 07/11/2014

Last night, I finished reading Smart Machines IBM's Watson and the Era of Cognitive Computing by John E. Kelly III and Steve Hamm.  I was reading about atomic scale computing.  Apparently, 12 atoms can be used to store 1 bit of information.  There is also a description of quantum computing where they are describing how it may be possible to use qbits to store information.

I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library this morning.

We had a management meeting today where we discussed a variety of issues.   I am now on three committies, the Local History Committee, the Grants Committtee, and the Planning committee. The planning committee is working on a new survey for the library, we are going to create a calendar for the grants committee, and a plan for the local history committee.

I also spent some time training a new substitute librarian on how the computer lab and the cybercorner work during the afternoon.

I have stack of magazines to read including Library Journal, Publishers Weekly, and Booklist.
