Daily Thoughts 02/04/2012

This morning, on the way to work, I read some of Thinking, Fast and Slow.  It is about decision making.  I learned that if you have any easier name for people to understand for your company it is more likely to be invested in on the stock market.  People seem to prefer what is easily understood or recognized.

This morning, I updated the Twitter and Facebook accounts for the library.  I also checked the displays and gifts.  It is the first Saturday of the month, and the library is open right now.

On the way home, I read some more of Thinking, Fast and Slow.  The author is describing how we tend to confirm our own biases and often not think clearly when we are too comfortable.  This is called confirmation bias.  He also describes the Halo Effect where we tend to attribute more positive things to a person if we already like them.
