As SOPA ("the worst Internet law in American legislative history") steamrolls its way through the House, the slightly less batshit senate version, PROTECT-IP, is also heading for passage. But Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) has vowed to block it with an epic filibuster in which he will read into the record the names of every American who signs the petition against the bill. If you want to be part of the historic effort to save the Internet from money, corruption, and depraved indifference to the side-effects of lining Hollywood's pockets, sign up NOW.
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.
