Here's John Hodgman doing a stellar job at the Radio and TV Correspondents' Dinner, addressing President Obama at the head table on the subject of being a true Nerd President. I was disappointed that Obama couldn't remember the name of the god that Conan worshipped. Of course, I was also disappointed that Obama decided to suppress videos and photos of illegal torture conducted by American troops.
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.
