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.

    For some reason this makes me feel tremendously depressed.

    I love the idea of transience in art, but hate transience in consumer electronics. Everything is so cheap is easily discarded. Even when stuff works, it’s thrown away. So this piece is thoroughly brilliant and that’s probably why it makes me feel sad.

    Wiring up pixels one by one gives a person an appreciation of the cathode ray tube’s ability to make pixels out of nothing but a phosphor screen. I’ve built a couple LED video screens, so I know all about it. The second one, I only soldered the first thousand prototype LEDs by hand and had robots build the rest.

    Low-rez is an understatement. This looks lower rez than the first electronic tv images.

    I didn’t see a single recognizable image.  It reminds me of the “color organs” that used to respond to music with flickering lights, back in the 60s….until we all noticed how BORING it was.
