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.

    What a piece of work is a Pacman!
    How simple in code, how invincible in power-pill-mode!
    In form and moving how round and cardinal!
    In action how like an sprite!
    in apprehension how like a wheel of cheese!
    The beauty of the arcade!
    The paragon of coin-op!
    And yet to me, what is this quintessence of pixels?
    Pacman delights not me; no, nor Ms. Pacman neither; though by your smiling you seem to say so.

    HORATIO Nay, very pale.

    HORATIO Most constantly, even after Marcellus had consumed him with his powered pill, his eyes, though travelling hither to his ghostly chamber stayed upon us.
