Daily Thoughts 07/19/2017

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I finished reading Homo Deus A Brief History of Tomorrow by Yuval Noah Harari. on the way home.  I thought the last chapter on The Data Religion was philosophically interesting.  However, I don't believe that people will accept the idea easily that intelligence is created from algorithms.  The ideas were captivating in this book even though they were disagreeable.

I checked the displays and the gift books this morning.

I spent some time working on scheduling today.

There is a Wordpress class today in the Computer Lab from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.  We had a Scratch programming class earlier at 4:00 p.m. for children in the computer lab.

The Mount Vernon Public Library Board of Trustees meeting is today at 6:30 p.m.  A new trustee was sworn in tonight.

I read some of Organized Enough The Anti-Perfectionist's Guide to Getting-- and Staying-- Organized by Amanda Sullivan.  The author focuses on not overdoing things when cleaning and storing things.  She tries to remind people to keep it simple and forgive yourself for being messy.
