Lifehacker's got a good post linking to ten great ways to get your cables under control. My favorite is this charging station built into a cardboard filing box, from Two Loose Teeth. 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.
