Last month I went to LA for the American Library Association conference, and sat on a panel called "Privacy: Is it time for a revolution," with Dan Roth from Wired and Beth Givens from the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse. The panel was put on by the ALA's Office for Intellectual Freedom as part of a larger project that is rallying librarians and their patrons to fight for privacy in libraries and in society at large. It was a really good panel (librarians are the best conceivable audience for this kind of thing) and the organizers have posted video of the speakers -- but more importantly, they've put up the ALA Privacy Initiative Concept Paper "Rallying Americans for the Right to Information Privacy" and a survey on privacy practices.

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.
