Frank Buchwald, a German lamp designer, specializes in gleaming, steampunky lighting that takes your breath away. This guy is to lighting what Roger Wood is to clocks. Link (Thanks, GDNL!)
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.
