Daily Thoughts 12/18/2017

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

Last night I read some more of Bunk.  There is a discussion of how many of the lost race stories and myths about Africa have been turned into science fiction.  Edgar Rice Burroughs stories about John Carter of Mars, H. Rider Haggard's  King Solomons Mines, and H.G. Wells, The Island of Dr. Moreau all of have at their heart false mythologies about race.

I reached out to some more people through LinkedIn for our Lets Build Robots! campaign.
