Dug sez, "This video profile of automata-maker Dug North includes a better view of the 'Crazed giant beast hand-cranked automaton prototype' featured on Boing Boing back on August 2nd, 2011."
Automata (Thanks, Dug North!)
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.
