Regal Cinemas insists that it will prosecute a 19-year-old girl to the fullest extent of the law for shooting 20-seconds' worth of footage from Transformers with her pocket camera. She planned on sending the clip to her younger brother to encourage him to see the film. Regal got the police to haul her out of the cinema. She was terrified and now she faces a $2,500 fine.

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.
