Pew, Forensics, Congress.gov, More: Friday Afternoon Buzz, February 21, 2014

Pew (PEW PEW PEW PEW!) has an extensive, fascinating article on “conversational archetypes” on Twitter. Not sure where ResearchBuzz fits in. Community Cluster? Anthrax Ripple? (Sorry, Monty Python joke.)

From the Washington Post: 16 Twitter Accounts to Follow to track the crisis in Ukraine.

Interesting… Google Glass Forensics. That link just outlines what is being done, for the data dumps, see part 2.

More Google: it has announced a 3D smartphone, Project Tango. “Project Tango aims to merge the physical and digital worlds. Humans use visual cues to interact with their environments, Google is building a prototype smartphone that can do pretty much the same thing.”

Congress.gov now has several advanced search improvements. (Read the blog post from LOC.gov – it’s pretty extensive.)

Fast Company has an extensive article on search engine DuckDuckGo.

Remember that WeMo vulnerability I was complaining about a couple of days ago? It’s been fixed. Good afternoon, 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!
