Daily Thoughts 03/07/2015
I checked the Facebook and Twitter pages of the library.
On the way to work, I read a little more of The Second Machine Age. I am reading about the concept of Winner Take All with information technology. There is a description of how digital technologies concentrate wealth and tend to provide the most money to the top product.
I checked the displays and the gift books this morning.
I spent some time looking at library mission statesments. I rather like the White Plains Public Library mission statement. http://whiteplainslibrary.org/mission/
I did a bit more work with the Latino History grant from ALA. I also registered with Poets and Writers so I could apply for funding. http://www.pw.org
On the way home, I read some more of The Second Machine Age. There is a reminder that there needs to be a move away from rote education to more flexible education which includes the abililty to think and come up with new ideas.
