Researchers have found bacteria that live in the coldest of salt water, in the deep pressure and heat of volcanic vents at the bottom of the ocean, and in the most acid of environments.

It wants you to start watching on your phone as you head home from work, pick up again on your TV as you relax in the evening, and then nod off to its content while you’re lying in bed, as it streams from your tablet.

I do a monthly show in Denver with two friends, Ben Roy and Andrew Orvedahl, called the Grawlix. We have a lot of repeat fans, so our one rule is no repeat material. Our guests can bring whatever level of polished stuff they would like but the three of us have to have 10 new minutes every month. No better motivator to create than having a deadline.

“We hope that secret boards will make Pinterest even more useful,” Pinterest software engineer Evrhet Milam wrote in a blog post. “You can use secret boards to keep track of holiday gifts, plan a special event, or work on a project you aren’t yet ready to share with the rest of the world.
