Heather Poole, an LA-based flight attendant, is also a total ninja when it comes to packing suitcases. This 12-step NYT slideshow illustrating her advanced packing techniques for getting 10 days' clothes into a carry-on just changed my life (top tip: roll, don't fold: take up less space, wrinkles less).

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.
