Daily Thoughts 02/28/2016

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I am almost done reading Native Son by Richard Wright.  The discussion should be interesting tomorrow at 6:00 p.m..  There is a short half hour movie on the book.  The story is quite dark at points and hard to read, but revelatory in its content.  It says a lot about race relations between black people and white people which is still true in many ways.

I read some more of Postcapitalism.  I am reading a very left oriented overview of labor history.  There are some interesting comments on Taylorism, Henry Ford, and how traditional unions are often used as a counterforce against fascism.  The final part is a bit on how networked individuals who use social media, cell phones, and computing are changing the organization of the workforce.
