Sandy, Google, Indiana, More: Briefish Morning Buzz, October 30, 2012

Back to our regular programming today, though I am leaving the Sandy resource site up at Hope everybody is doing well.

Google has added power outage information to its Sandy crisis map.

More Google: it has launched a voter information tool. “You can enter your address to find information on your polling place, early vote locations, ballot information with links to candidates’ social media sites and voting rules and requirements.”

In the state of Indiana there is a new jobs database. “Indiana Chamber Vice President Derek Redelman says it is specifically geared toward Hoosier job seekers who have graduated from high school but have less than a four-year college degree.” (Edited to reflect the fact that this resource is not official Indiana government.)

Interesting: using social media to assist in vehicle quality management. “Virginia Tech’s Pamplin College of Business … conducted what is believed to be the first large-scale case study confirming the value of social media for vehicle quality management.”

The National Institute of Justice has started a database of NIJ-funded projects.

Chrome’s Remote Desktop Sharing service is now out of beta.

Now available: a search engine for UI elements (UI in this case short for User Interface). Good morning, Internet…
