Public schools in Barnegat were locked down briefly after someone reported seeing a ninja running through the woods behind an elementary school.Link (via Schneier)
Turns out the ninja was actually a camp counselor dressed in black karate garb and carrying a plastic sword.
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.
