In May, Google released data on their workforce that showed Google employees are 30% women and 5% African-American or Hispanic. Google isn’t just working to change its ways; Google also released a video on how hiring managers can become less biased and why it’s important. Google was once known for its dreaded brainteasers during interviews. Research studies have shown that structured interviews yield a more diverse workplace. A diverse workforce isn’t just politically correct, it’s a way to bring new ideas into your organizational culture. A diverse workforce doesn’t just bring new ideas from new hires; a diverse workforce can create an atmosphere that welcomes new ideas from existing employees.
In Professor Messor’s July Network+ Study Group, a fellow student mentioned that if you Google “Magic Box IP Subnetting” there’s an easy way to subnet. Subnetting is often the hardest thing to learn for new networking students. I came across a YouTube video that really makes subnetting easy! I wish I had learned this while I was taking Cisco 1. Big “Thank You!” to leoric80 for his video!

It occurs to me at every library book sale that book sales aren’t really about the books. It’s one of the rare moments in time when book people get together. Sometimes we browse in silence and other times we discuss our books, our lives, and the strange ways that our lives intersect. As I browsed through boxes of library discards and donated items, I complimented a woman her unique ringtone. She just smiled, then she seemed to recognize me, she asked me about being the North Dakota Library Association’s Archivist and what my plans were since resigning my position. She later mentioned that she went to school in the building that is now my library. She said the building has changed so much that she barely recognized it except from the outside. She wanted to see some old high school yearbooks, I pointed her in the direction of the Historical Center and told her Jackie could help her locate the yearbooks.
