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.

    Spiffing. And such.

    This is a bit frustrating.   They assume that the watcher will understand that recalibrating a needle-in-a-haystack machine to catch villains is absurd.   Unfortunately, I don’t think the viewing public in general understand this—they still thing computers are magic, and can do miracles.   This despite years of experience with actual computers.

       Many governments want a needle-in-a-haystack machine to find the ‘badduns’, when what they actually need is just a mirror…

    Why couldn’t Dick Cheney play the lead role? Was he too busy? Probably out hunting.

    I have read a lot of books and seen a lot of classic movies, but somehow i have managed to avoided learning what “kippers” are. In an odd way I enjoy the mystery. I can imagine that kippers are Jack Russel Terriers haunches, or  pygmy game hens, or maybe Capybara tongues. I wonder how long before the answer forces itself on me…

    I eagerly await Mr. B’s counter to the machine
