Daily Thoughts 04/30/2013

This morning on the way to work, I read a little more from Vote Yes for Libraries.  The authors are describing how to set up a budget and a calendar for a ballot initiative.  Some of the items they discuss are lawn signs, buttons, bumper stickers, going door to door, and the importance of mailings for library campaigns.

I also read a little bit more of the Lean Entrepreneur.  The authors are discussing how to test a product cheaply and update a product quickly.  There are numerous case studies of a couple pages throughout the book.  This ranges from gourmet pizza to motor vehicle prototypes to internet startups.  This book is not just for software companies.

I checked the displays this morning and am checking the monthly statistics.  I also checked the Facebook and Twitter for the library.

On the way home, I finished reading the Lean Entrepreneur.  It is a completely overview of the lean philosophy in entrepreneurship.  A lot of it is about how to build a startup inexpensively with a lot of bootstrapping.  I also read another chapter of Vote Yes for Libraries.  The authors are writing about the importance of volunteers.
