I read some more of Thinking, Fast and Slow.  Daniel Kahneman is writing about overconfidence in decision making.  He is describing why people believe their small business will survive, or their stock pick will do well.  He shows how people believe that they will do better than everyone else.

This morning, I checked the displays and the gift books and updated the Twitter and Facebook accounts.  I also worked on a flyer.  We have the Computer Lab for Academic Use from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. today.

We have the Women's Enterprise Development Center today in the Computer Lab from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.  They are doing a session on computers for business.

I also spent some time picking out books on collage, assemblage, and sculpture to display in cabinets or vitrines next to the Rotunda Gallery in case they are needed.

On the way home I read some more of Thinking, Fast and Slow.  The author is writing about loss aversion and how we value what we have more than what we plan on buying. 

I got a place at which is an unconference. It happens before the Tools of Change in Publishing Conference which is in the coming week which should be very interesting which is on February 13-15 this coming week.   Incidentally it is also the same week as the New York Social Media Week on February 13-17.   Social Media Week is mostly free.  There is a session on New York Public Library's Social Media Labs.
