Daily Thoughts 8/24/2011

A Chinese revolving typecase from the agricultural book Nong Shu, written by the Chinese official and agronomist Wang Zhen, published in the year 1313 CE during the Yuan Dynasty.

Daily Thoughts 8/24/2011

This morning, I read a little bit more of Ghost in the Wire.  It becomes clear when the reading the book, that Kevin Mitnick was absolutely absorbed with computers and telephones to the point where little else mattered.  I also read some more of Made to Stick which is describing how to simplify and focus your message.

This morning, I took some time to update the displays, check the gifts, and put together a flyer for a biography book club.  The Friends of the Library had asked for the club as well as some of the people from the Adult Summer Reading program.

I also spent some time checking the Facebook and Twitter accounts.

We have two programs running this evening.  The Womens Enterprise Development Center is running a program called Is Small Business Right For You today and tomorrow from 5:30-7:30 p.m..  We also have Arts Westchester tonight which is doing a program on a grant for local artists from 6:00-8:00 p.m.

Jonathan Lethem has a new book coming out in November called The Ecstasy of Influence.  I rather enjoyed his science fiction writing, especially Gun, With Occassional Music.
