Daily Thoughts 10/21/2018

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I also spent some time thinking about weeding, the mezzanine, and unique aspects of our collection. It is not an easy thing to think about.

I read some more of Prediction Machines last night.  I am reading about how it is becoming cheaper to make more accurate predictions using artificial intelligence.  A lot of this is about predicting things like how a human might drive a car, how a person would react to a change in the stock market, what are the odds for it to be sunny tomorrow?  This makes it easier for people to make decisions with cheap and accurate prediction.

I checked the purchase alerts for items on hold.
