Nebraska, Kickstarter, Chrome, More: Morning Buzz, September 5, 2012

Learnist: Pinterest for learning? Sounds interesting. “Learnist allows users to create ‘lessons’ on specific academic or casual learning topics by curating information from around the Web or uploading original content onto learning boards.”

The state of Nebraska’s Tourism Commission has started a new online photo gallery. But apparently you have to register for an account before you can even look at the 4000 pictures. AW, C’MON, NEBRASKA!

I was wondering this too: What happens when a Kickstarter project fails?

The Chrome Browser: now it is four.

I LOVE stories like this. Guy serving in Korean War takes lots of pictures — LOTS of pictures — like maybe a thousand pictures. Granddaughter starts scanning them and uploading them to Imgur, creating an instant archive.

Nice use of Facebook Timeline — the history of the computer. Hat tip to Gizmodo.

More archives for the state of Illinois are now available online.

And in other news, Freddie Mercury is now an Angry Bird. The picture of him answers my question: could birds ever have macho chest hair? The answer is apparently yes. Good morning, Internet…
