Eric Buss, a "comedy magician," built a bicycle with a bubble-wrap roll on its front fork, which lays down its own satisfyingly poppy trail ahead of its leading edge. All my life, I have tried to ensure that the bubbles are popped and done with, but the bastards keep making more. Where does it all come from? Will our long nightmare of unpopped bubbles ever end?
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.
