Daily Thoughts 01/07/2013

This morning, I read a little bit more of How To Create a Mind.  There was a little bit on how people are more conscious when they decide not to do things.  A lot of the thought that goes into automatic decisions and habits is not conscious.  By choosing to not do things we are acting with greater consciousness.

I checked the social media accounts for the library this morning.  I also spent a little time checking the new books and the displays.  A banner is being put in for the January is National Tea Month display.  We are also pulling some of the older titles from the new books.  I also checked the news for the current events display.

I put the book Agile Project Management for Dummies by Mark C. Layton on hold.

I finished reading How to Create a Mind today.  The author has some very interesting ideas on the progress of computers and how artificial intelligence will develop.  Quite a bit of it is very philosophical.  I found the book to be very informative.  There were a lot of little details in the writing which were fascinating.  I like the idea that there will soon be three dimensional computer chips.
