The Reading Light - Georg Pauli

The Reading Light, Georg Pauli, 1884

Daily Thoughts 05/11/2015

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I read some more of the book, Sapiens.  I am reading about the scientific revolution.  Yuval Noah Harari argues that becoming aware of our own ignorance is one of the hallmarks of science.

I also read a bit more of Biblio TECH  by John Palfrey.  John Palfrey is one of the founding contributors to the DPLA, Digital Public Library of America.  He describes the DPLA's purpose as a historical repositiory of images and documents.
