Wil Harris from Channel Flip sez, "Take one remote control Dr Who Dalek toy, add a state of the art pinhole security camera, pair with wireless transmitter and hard disk recorder - and voila, an incognito security device for the geek office or home. This bot was made by a London security firm for an anonymous client and we got to play with it!" Link (Thanks, Wil!)
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.
