Slate has a great little video from a prison-food convention. Thrill to made-in-China crinkle-cut carrots, gasp at a knife-locker, leer suggestively at the stick-free corn-dogs, and chuckle ironically at the revelation that the prison system demands higher quality food than the school system.

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.
