Flickr user Dan4th's friend Brett made these paperclip small arms: "My friend Brett makes weapons out of paperclips and glue. I use them to practice my macro photography on. We both win. And, ladies, he's single. ;)"
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.
