Google, Eagle Scouts, More: Friday Buzz, February 7, 2014

Google has announced Chromebox as a business conferencing solution. Sounds interesting, but that price tag is tough…

I love reading stories like this. Eagle Scout to-be Dylan Lauscher coordinated the creation of a digital archive for a church in Green Bay, Wisconsin. “Over the course of several months and with the help of 17 volunteers, Lauscher orchestrated the effort to scan and catalog over 1,400 church photographs, with the oldest dating back to 1916, and digitize over 400 historical church documents.”

Twitter has an astonishing number of inactive users. (I am not one of them, as you know if you follow me on Twitter. I can’t help but wonder what Twitter’s user population would look like if Twitter relaxed its API requirements (or even charged for it!)

Hongkiat.com has a writeup of a Chrome plugin called Deeper History, which is designed to make searching your Chrome history easier. Not foolproof. But easier.

Dick Eastman has a writeup on the first day of RootsTech.

Mocavo added 20,000 databases yesterday. Good morning, Internet…

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!
