Jon found this $200 DNA sequencer on GovDeals, a site listing government surplus equipment. He notes, "I figured I should share this so that maybe some do-gooder out there might be able to use the device to better humanity or their personal cause and hopefully keep Dr. Moreau types away."

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.
