Following its TV broadcast, this commercial was the subject of great discussion: nuns lounge around in an afri-cola rush. It led to a boycott of the Bayerisch Rundfunk, and in a letter, Cardinal Frings mentions afri-cola in connection with the "denigration of the church".Link (via We Make Money Not Art)
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
