Pierre Petit, Picture of Victor Hugo, circa 1860s
Daily Thoughts 12/27/2015
I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.
Last night, I read some more of Petty: The Biography. I am reading about when Tom Petty toured with Bob Dylan. This influenced Petty to have his songs be more story focused.
I watched a bit of the dvd, The End of the Tour which is a film about the writer, David Foster Wallace who is most famous for writing Infinite Jest.
I watched some more of Strategic Planning Fundamentals with Mike Figliulo on Lynda.com. One of the better things about Lynda.com is that the videos are very granular. It starts with the overall title, then it is broken into sections, then each section is broken into very short segments of two to six minutes each. This makes it easy to take your time watching the videos. You can spend ten or fifteen or minutes a day and still get something out of the videos.
