Seen at New York Comic-Con, which I'm presently attending: Banana Design's whimsical bare-bones lights, which consist of flickering LEDs set into sweet, cut-out circuit boards that look like candelabras, fireplaces and angler fishes. The 9V battery on the back acts as a stand and stabilizing weight.

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.
