The annual Dance Your PhD contest challenges grad students to dance their dissertations, interpreting their science with awesome, kinetic, expressive body-language. The 12 finalists have been announced, and are up for your voting. From "Sperm competition between brothers and female choice" the "Multi-Axial Fatigue for Predicting Life of Mechanical Components" (above) and all the others, they are spectacular.

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.
