Daily Thoughts 12/02/2019

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I am reading Ancient Greek Gadgets and Machines by Robert S. Brumbaugh.  The main reason is because of Hero of Alexandria who worked at the Great Library of Alexandria.  I am reading about the creation of the aeolipile, the first steam engine and Hero's devices for temples like a coin operated holy water dispenser.
