Here's a little video showing what happened before Alexandra Thomas and Scott Jones had their iconic kiss in the midst of the Vancouver riot -- basically, the Vancouver PD laid an unprovoked beating on Thomas and Jones gave her a kiss to comfort her as she lay groaning on the road.

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.
