Seattle's Steve Sauer (a former Boeing interiors engineer) has done up his 182 sqft apartment over two levels, with cleverly segmented nooks and crannies for different uses. It's as snug as a houseboat, and looks like it'd be a great place to live: "I wanted to compress my home to squirt me back out to the community.That was one of the philosophical reasons. I want to be able to shop daily, not store a lot and eat really well."

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.
