Andy sez, "For the past few years I have been building a steampunk pirate ship. We plan to have the ship done by Burning Man 2010. So far all the fundraising has been through donations and the sales of small LED sculptures called 'Tripod Sentinels'. We just finished a video describing the Tripods and the Ship."
I've got one of Andy's wicked Tripod Sentinels right here, and it is truly a thing of beauty. Can't wait to see what the finished pirate ship looks like.
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.
