The site's groaning under heavy load (and, bizarrely, throwing up old Amiga error codes!), but I'm going to keep on trying to sign up for it if it takes all day. For the short-attentions-spanned: The Digital Economy Act is punishing copyright legislation rammed through without any real Parliamentary debate; it includes disconnection of whole families from the Internet on the unproven accusation of copyright infringement as well as a de facto prohibition on open wireless networks (lest you use them to anonymously infringe upon copyright).
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.
