Daily Thoughts 09/06/2012

There is a reception for the new director this evening from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m..  I think it will go well.  I updated the Facebook and Twitter pages for the library this morning.

On the way to work, I read more of We Are Anonymous.  It is kind of interesting.  The author describes botnet attacks, social engineering, and denial of service attacks used by hackers.  She also describes how the first major example of hacktivism was against scientology.  There are also sections on Pirate Bay, copyright protests, and Wikileaks.

The computer lab was open from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. today.  I also placed the book, How to Create A Mind: The Secrets of Human Thought Revealed by Ray Kurzweil on hold.  Ray Kurzweil also wrote The Singularity is Near.  This book is at least partially about artificial intelligence.

I noticed that Baker and Taylor bought parts of Follett and has purchased BWI.  We order some of our material from BWI and also have an account with Baker and Taylor.  This is a change which should be quite interesting.
