Serge Mouange ("a Cameroon-born, Paris-raised, Tokyo-based" Nissan car designer) has launched Wafrica, a couture brand that makes Japanese kimonos out of traditional African fabrics. They're just beautiful, and he's promised more Japan/African mashup designs in future (let's hope he launches them with a kinder website than the current unlinkable, music-in-background, browser-crashing Flashstrosity that's currently there).
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.
