Avi sez, "Mary Lou Jepsen, who invented the sunlight readable display for the two-watt XO laptop, gives the numbers that set the bar for ALL future gadgets."
This is a hell of a video clip -- Jepsen just lays down the cold, hard numbers about her marvellous invention and compares it to the disposable power-guzzlers the rest of us use and the comparison speaks for itself. Damn, I wish that they'd made this for sale in Britain last Christmas. Link (Thanks, Avi!)
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.
