Update: Jennifer sez, "The footage comes from the 1983 film version of 'Pirates of Penzance,' staring Linda Ronstadt and Kevin Kline. I am only mildly embarrassed that I know this. Heh."
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.
