Google Maps, Firefox, the Federal Reserve, More: Morning Buzz, March 15, 2012

Google Maps has updated its imagery of the earthquake/tsunami areas.

Have you seen New York’s new online Hall of Governors?

Firefox 11 is now available.

Interesting reading: How Twitter Saved my Literature Class.

Stanford is offering more free online courses. New classes include Game Theory, Natural Language Processing, and Cryptography.

Wow! No more Encyclopaedia Britannica in a print version. “The last run in 2010 produced about 12,000 sets of a new 32-volume copyright based on the 15th edition, a version which first rolled off the presses in 1974. There are about 4,000 sets left, selling for $1,395 each on the Britannica web site. After they are gone, the iconic publication will be relegated to history.” BONUS: To mark the change, the online edition of EB is going free for a week.

I have signed in for the new Curate.me. Hopefully this’ll help me keep up with the great stuff that I miss because I’m not watching Facebook stream every second.

The Federal Reserve is now on Twitter. There’s a joke in there but I can’t find it at the moment. Good morning, Internet…
