Daily Thoughts 07/19/2015

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I read some more of Future Crimes.  The author is describing many of the different types of people who can be potentially involved in criminal activity.  It includes hackers, hacktivists, crackers, terrorists, criminals, and many others.  He also describes a variety of different means of attacking computers including viruses, trojans, malware, and denial of service attacks.  It is an interesting overview of the different types of crime.  He points out that cybercrime can reach millions of individuals on a large scale.

I also started reading Blueprint for Your Library Marketing Plan.  I like to think of this as part of strategic planning, something which the library is doing right now.  There are a series of focus being planned for the library.

All Those Techies Who Promise the Demise of the Public Library Were Wrong
I like to think of a silo as what you put grain in a field in.  Some techies have this habit of calling a library a silo for learning where knowledge is locked into a single building.
