Daily Thoughts 05/02/2018

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

Last night, I finished reading habeas data Privacy vs. the Rise of Surveillance Tech by Cyrus Farivar.  This book is about the legal issues and cases surrounding surveillance technology like Stingray, electrothermal imaging, beepers, and phones.  It describes how it is increasingly easy for governments to do mass surveillance of society.  There is a reminder at the end that many people don't even know that they are being watched.

I read some more of The Square and the Tower last night.  There is a theme of hierarchy versus networks in the book.

I checked the gift books and the displays.

I am in the computer lab right now.

I read a copy of Publishers Weekly.

I also read the latest copy of Bookpage.

I spent a little time working on orders for new books.

I put together some lists which I posted from Booksite of new material.
