Twitter, Game Developer, iOS, More – Saturday Morning Buzz, September 21, 2013

Now available in beta: an online archive containing over 25,000 documents on the “Freedom Summer” of Mississippi, 1964. More documents will be added over time.

Fast Company has an article about an hyperlocal Twitter filter. Neighborhood-level. I can imagine this being very useful in an emergency.

More Twitter: here’s an updated guide to Twitter slang and abbreviations.

More More Twitter: Twitter TV ratings will launch on September 30.

Now available in alpha: a search engine for 3-D models. “The site, defcad.com, is currently in alpha release but even without press attention its library has quickly grown to nearly 75,000 files. Like The Pirate Bay, the new search engine allows users to add links without storing any of the files on its own servers.”

Scammers are flooding the Internet Archives with pirated movie links. This is why we can’t have anything nice.

Game Developer Magazine is now available as a digital archive. That’s the entire run (1994-2013). It appears to be completely free.

TIME Magazine has served up its list of the 50 best iPhone apps for 2013. As a 52-page slide show. Seriously? There are some interesting apps here, but … good grief.

The CEO of Microsoft called Google out for being a monopoly. “They have this incredible, amazing, dare I say monopoly that we are the only person left on the planet trying to compete with.” Following his quote Mr. Ballmer was not smacked with a raw chicken by the knight from Monty Python’s Flying Circus.

I love your comments, I love your site suggestions, and I love you. Feel free to comment on the blog, or @ResearchBuzz on Twitter. Thanks!
