Update: I had been told by a sales rep that Disney mobiles let you see pen-trace data on your kids' calls, but Scott Forbes of Disney Mobile tells me that this isn't true.
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.
