Kim Dotcom’s new Mega file hosting service now apparently has its own search engine.

The Washington Post has launched a new tool for searching recent home sales. “Whether you are a buyer, a seller, a real estate agent or just someone who’s nosy, the application can help you search any sold property in the Washington metro area, including for-sale-by-owner and new construction. And we’re pretty generous with the term ‘Recent Home Sales.’ Some of our historical data goes back to the 1990s.”

A new searchable database of Mexican philanthropy has been launched. “A new searchable database of more than 22,000 Mexican philanthropies, Fondos a la Vista, has been launched by the Foundation Center in New York in partnership with the Mexico-based Alternativas y Capacidades and the Philanthropy and Civil Society Project at ITAM (Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México). The online resource provides the Mexican public with reliable, comprehensive information about domestic donors and their philanthropic activity, including the organizations they support.”

The University at Buffalo has launched a new digital Robert Frost Collection.
