Miles sez, "Jorge Cham, author of the totally amazing Ph.D. Comics (disclaimer: I'm a grad student) posted the first of a five-part series of comics about his visit to the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva. To me, the best part about Cham's work is that he always gives you the scientific perspective from the ground rather than from the professor's office at the top of the ivory tower." PHD Comics: Tales from the Road - CERN, pt. 1 (Thanks, Miles!)
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.
