Deeplinking has collected the paper sketches that gave birth to Twitter, Flickr, Vimeo, Abiword, mySociety, and others. Shown here, an early Twitter (stat.us) sketch, from Jack Dorsey's Flickr stream. My own contribution to the archiving of this stuff are my pics of Raph Koster's original, hand-drawn Ultima Online map. Link (via Waxy)
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.
