Worst ToS on the entire Internet: The Central Pacific Railroad Photographic History Museum has 21,000 words of legalese on its homepage, a disclaimer and terms-of-service document that is likely the very worst of its kind on the entire Internet.
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.
