Privacy is Dying Fast, Are We Slow to Respond

Privacy is dying or already dead. People (myself included) freely tell the world about our activities through Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc.  But we have given up our privacy in even more subtle ways than social media.  I currently have 3 loyalty cards on my key chain, my grocer, pharmacy, and pet store.  That doesn't include the several loyalty cards I have in my wallet, hardware store, shoe store, sports store, and sandwich chain.  Additionally I have 2-3 apps that are loyalty cards like S

More medical caregivers don’t have an M.D.

When Flora Piatti goes to the doctor these days, she doesn’t deal directly with an MD. The Douglasville woman’s medical needs at the YourTown Health clinic in Palmetto are handled by a physician assistant — a PA, as they’re often called — and that’s fine with her.

Doug Mirams's curator insight, September 20, 5:10 PM

Good question from Brian Matthews to get your library towards being more "Social": 

"It is easy to develop assumptions about what a library is or what it should be, especially if you work in administration. But I encourage everyone to stop once in a while and ask people why they are the [sic] your building. Not just what they are doing, but why library space instead of anywhere else. The answers may surprise you."
