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.

    I hope the kid is getting paid for this. 

  3. Take a meme, run it through a 3D printer – and profit!

    I’d like you to do the goatse next. I could use it as a pencil holder.

    Wow. I really enjoyed watching that actually.

     Awesome. I think it’s a pretty good 3D model actually, though the 3D print looks kind of… not good at that small of scale. Think it’d benefit being printed at least twice as large from the pic posted on the guy’s page.

    I think it’s the eyes.  Eyes have been a problem for sculpture for 3000 years.

    I am not disappoint. 

    But seriously, I am not. Some too-serious people lament how humans take wonderful tech and immediately use it for things that might be considered silly or trivial, like how photographic pornography was invented soon after the first pic, and how the interwebz is populated by penises and cats. But this is stuff people seem to really like and without this tech appealing to our baser-interests I doubt a lot of it would be around to be used for more noble pursuits. 

    /pompous, pedantic post

    Remember all those lawyers we buried at the bottom of the ocean?… Well…. Norhing… it’s just that… I think I can hear them churning.

      Those are not lawyers at the bottom of the ocean you hear but the planet Venus. 

      No other sound has been as misidentified as the churning of lawyers at the bottom of the ocean more often than the planet Venus.
