Daily Thoughts 06/11/2017

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I started reading Walkaway last night by Cory Doctorow.  It is near future science fiction. The story is about people who build their own communities outside of regular society called "walkaways."  It describes the end point of a variety of technologies like 3D printing, open source manufacturing, emergency construction techniques, recycling, and fab labs.

I read some of Unf*ck Your Habitat You're Better Than Your Mess by Rachel Hoffman.  This is a book about organizing for people who lead imperfect lives.  It suggests doing 20 minutes of cleaning followed by 10 minutes of rest.  It also tackles issues for people who have disabilities like depression or back pain.
