Daily Thoughts 05/12/2013

I read some more of The New Digital Age.  I am reading a chapter called The Future of Identity, Citizenship, and Reporting.  The authors describe how news is much more distributed now and does not just come from the newsrooms, they also argue that there is a greater need for privacy and data security.

I spent some time checking social media this morning.

Sometimes you find titles that are interesting like Making Starships and Stargates by James F. Woodward which investigates the science of wormholes and warp drive.  NASA has been working quite a bit on the Alcubierre drive. The book came out in December 2012 and there is no listing for it in Worldcat so I can't request it through interlibrary loan.
