Daily Thoughts 03/03/2016

I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library this morning.

Last night, I read some more of Failure Why Science is So Successful.  I am reading about the natural tendency for things to tend towards entropy as well as serendipity.  I also read some more of Black Box Thinking. Matthew Syed is writing about United Airlines Flight 173 which ended in disaster.  He is describing how the collection of two books for flight recording reduced the chances for accidents in the future.

I checked the gift books and the displays.  I called a few people about programming.  I also printed some flyers to distribute.  There is going to be a play on April 2, 2016 sponsored by the Friends of the Library at 2:00 p.m. called W.E.B. Dubois, A Man For All Seasons.

I discussed scheduling with some people. We also have a new quarterly review process for people which I discussed with the assistant director.

I spent some time discussing tablets with a colleague as well.

There was a class tonight for Android Smartphones in the computer lab from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
