Barry sez, "The NYT has a terrific interactive graphic showing the financial destruction caused by the Wall Street meltdown. 29 firms have lost about a Trillion dollars. (that's trillion with a T)" A Year of Heavy Losses (Thanks, Barry!)
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.
