Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.

Ready? 

Yes, you are, and we’re ready to help you.

(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)

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?)
