UK Archives, NLM, Pinterest, More: Friday Afternoon Buzz, May 9, 2014

The Wellcome Library has launched the Sandbox, a new developmental Web space. Available now: Beta Browse and Toggle-a-Tron.

Delicious has gotten acquired. Again.

The National Archives of the UK has begun capturing official government tweets and videos.

WordPress has released WordPress 3.9.1, a maintenence release.

The National Library of Medicine has launched a new blog, Voyaging to the Future.

The Buffer people have put together a list of over 30 IFTTT recipes for social media. And no, they’re not all Buffer-oriented. Quite a good list.

Why, the police! “A quick search on Pinterest shows about 85 boards from police departments around the country — including Kansas City, Mo., police — who have used Pinterest to help solve burglary and robbery cases, locate missing people and educate parents about street drugs their kids may be using.” Good afternoon, Internet…
