Yesterday, Tower Bridge's drawbridge was raised to allow a 50-foot-high yellow rubber duck to sail down the Thames. It was part of the launch of "Facebook Fundation, a bursary granting funds and rewards for daft ideas to encourage Brits to have more fun."

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.
