I'm a library technologist working in rural Vermont teaching people on the back end of the digital divide how to use computers.Not only that, but she co-edited Revolting Librarians Redux, one of the most exciting books I've read in the past ten years.
I also help run MetaFilter.com, especially Ask MetaFilter and travel around the world talking about library technology issues. My blog, librarian.net talks a lot about the intersection of libraries, technology and politics.
I'm grumpy about the USA PATRIOT Act, threats to open access and bad laws shaping bad culture.
I like moss, snowshoeing, old books and the color orange.
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.
