The Gizmodos pranked the Las Vegas Consumer Electronic Show by running around with one of MAKE's TV-Be-Gone devices, turning off ever-increasing numbers of TVs (and documenting it on video). I like the bits when they switch off the show-floor display models, but it shades over into too-mean-for-me when they start to switch off the sets that are being used to display slides and presentation materials from live presenters. Still, no biggie -- just turn the TV back on and you're up. Link
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.
