This 1961 ad for Summitville Tiles, Inc. features an all-too-familiar lab scene that we were only able to put behind us for good when we stopped letting Salvador Dali cook his meth in Boing Boing Labs.
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.
