New from me at Wired:

Minecraft is incredibly open-ended. It’s entirely up you whether you as a player whether spend your time building elaborate castles, fighting monsters, or exploring the the game world. What’s more, using mods, you can quickly create things that would…

Improve your life “in a way that is relevant” to you.  And you can!

Caffeination optimization!
Yeah, we made an app for that. 
Now, that’s what we call JAVA SCRIPT.

With Caffeine Zone 2 (free for iOS), developed by Penn State's ACS Lab,  you note the amount of caffeine consumed. It tracks how long the stimulant will remain elevated in your bloodstream.

A graph shows how your caffeine intake will affect your alertness level and your sleep.    (Hey, shouldn’t you be sleeping right now, anyway?)

Super Hero Window Washers

… entertained children and families at the Hershey Medical Center as they rappelled down the glass facade of the Children’s Hospital. 

Superhero Window Washers    |   Penn State

These superheros braved the heights for the bravest of kids – the kids fighting for their good health in the Penn State Hershey Medical Center Children’s Hospital.

Batman, Captain America, Superman and Spiderman entertained as they rappelled down the glass face of the hospital. Our masked Penn State Nittany Lion mascot waited below. He’s not known for flying, just for one-armed pushups and spirit.

… if there is one thing female entrepreneurs have in common, it’s that they persist even in the face of gender prejudice.
