Bing, NCCU, Twitter, IndyCar, More: Morning Buzz, May 9, 2012

So apparently Bing is rolling out a redesigned search results page to give an impression of “overload” on the Google search results page. I swear y’all, this is giving me Altavista/Google flashbacks.

North Carolina Central University Founder James E. Shepard will be the subject of a new digital archive. “The new collection includes Shepard’s correspondence with W.E.B. Du Bois, John Hope Franklin, and other leading Black scholars of the first half of the 20th century.”

Are open SSIDs in decline? I sure hope so…

Twitter is planning to do more with the Discover tab.

Idaho dam debates, now in yummy digital archive flavor.

Ooooo! I can’t wait to get into this archive of New York photographs! Sounds fun.

So apparently Twitter isn’t great at predicting elections. Every time I read a story about using social networks to predict events I remember the thing about how observation changes the item being observed.

IndyCar races… now on YouTube. (There’s also over 40 clips of crashes.)

Want to do some digging? Check out this search engine for seriously obscure adults. This sounds like a cool idea if they can keep it from being spammy. Good morning, Internet…
