Daily Thoughts 12/13/2014
I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library this morning.
I read some more of Hacker, Hoaxer, Whistleblower, Spy The Many Faces of Anonymous by Gabriella Coleman. Gabriella Coleman wrote this as part of her academic requirement to publish. She is a cultural antrhopologist focusing on modern culture. The style is quite interesting. There are many excerpts from internet relay chat conversations. This means there is a lot of dialogue. Also, in order for her to do this kind of work, she has to have regular contact with the people involved so that there is a lot of original research. This makes the book more authoritative.
I checked the gifts and the displays this morning. I also summarized my committee meeting from yesterday. I sent some information for a flyer to our graphic designer.
