As someone who gets off on material culture (but struggles with space constraints, financial reality and environmental concerns), I was struck by Bruce Sterling's Venn diagram depicting "anticonventional objects" -- a phrase that pretty much sums up my wunderkammer urge.
Update: See also Mark's account of Bruce's presentation of this graphic at Maker Faire Rome.
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.
