MIT students honored the dear departed geek hero Gary Gygax (creator of Dungeons and Dragons) by fabricating a gigantic D20 and rolling it into the notorious prank zone Killian Court. Eric Schmiedl's got a gallery of great photos of the natural 20 in all its glory. Link (via Laughing Squid)
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.
