Amazon, Baseball, Putting This Up So I can Catch Up: Evening Buzz, April 7, 2012

Look at you, Amazon, with your cloud full of genomes! “Amazon Web Services LLC (AWS), an company (NASDAQ:AMZN) and the United States National Institutes of Health (NIH) today announced at the White House Big Data Summit that the complete 1000 Genomes Project is now available on AWS as a publicly available data set….The project has grown to 200 terabytes of genomic data including DNA sequenced from more than 1,700 individuals that researchers can now access on AWS for use in disease research. ”

Baseball fans are finally going to get Negro League Statistics. The bad news this is six years after the project was “finished” (data is still being gathered.) The stats are great. The delay is awful!

Thailand — now on Google Maps Street View.

Facebook Photos! Now higher resolution and full screen (nice!)

One of the problems with doing ResearchBuzz is that I find out about Marcel Breuer via the Marcel Breuer digital archive blog post, I look him up on Wikipedia, and down the rabbit hole I go… good evening, Internet…
