Daily Thoughts 01/25/2013

Antonio de Pereda, Allegory, circa 1654
Daily Thoughts 01/25/2013

On the way to work, I read some more of Wait the Art and Science of Delay. Frank Partnoy describes how it is important to distract yourself and think of something else like a number or the alphabet when you see advertising or fast food places.  This will break your train of thought and make it less likely you will buy something or go into a fast food place.

This morning, I checked the libraries Facebook and Twitter accounts.  I also checked the displays.  I am working on the displays for African American history month in February.

This is the third part in the series.

Will Smart Machines Create a World Without Work
If you want to understand this better there is a book called Automate This:  How Algorithms Came to Rule Our World by Christopher Steiner.

On the way home, I read a little more of Wait the Art and Science of Delay.  There was a little bit on when it is best to not doing anything at all and not make a decision which was quite thoughtful.
