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.
