Hoo-ah! I was at MakerBot in Brooklyn yesterday and they were all atwitter with the news that Bre Pettis, the face of the MakerBot open 3D printer and the Thingiverse 3D object repository, would be on Colbert Report
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.
