Olympus WS-110 WMA
Digital Voice Recorder The Olympus WS-110 digital voice
recorder works beautifully. The interface was pretty easy to figure
out, and the built-in USB plug is very handy. I just stick it my
computer and it mounts like a disk.

Gerber Crucial Multi-Tool : The Gerber Crucial's specs and image give me that head-to-toe multitool lust that has overtaken me only a few times before -- once for the Skeletool and once for Gerber's old DIY mix-and-match tool. I've had about five Gerber tools over the years and every one of them was a winner. I'm off to buy one tomorrow. WANT. FWOAR.
RESCUE TAPE Self-Fusing Silicone Tape : Self-fusing silicone "rescue" tape sounds like some powerfully useful stuff -- permanently bonds to itself in one minute, creating a 700psi-rated, acid/solvent/oil-resistant seal. As the Red Ferret sez, "just think of it as a reel of spare fanbelt."
Thinkpad X200: My latest and most favorite laptop has the greatest warranty on earth. It's light, rugged, fast, runs GNU/Linux like blazes, has a waterproof keyboard with drainage holes in the bottom, and you can choose from heavy, super-long-life batteries for long-distance travel and light, slender ones for home-and-office journeys.

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.
