Dan Cooper created this handsome hand-bound personal copy of Little Brother, working from the PDF. Nice work!
Matt Smith snapped this amazing street-sign in Tokyo, noting that "it's kind of a cool accidental cover" for my young adult novel Little Brother.
Today on BBtv, the first epidode in a series of video HOWTOs for the technology in Little Brother. These episodes are produced and narrated by an incredibly talented young woman who goes by "5t311a" and is purely made of awesome! Word is she's going to work through all the Instructables from the book!
Young adults in Evanston, IL worked with a teen librarian to make this unbelievably fantastic video based on Little Brother, reenacting the opening section of the book in painstaking detail (look at them limping from the gravel in their shoes!). This is so fantastically great.
Jeff Clark made this bad-ass "StreamGraph" of the word-frequency distributions in Little Brother -- they show how often proper names were used in the course of the book. It's a really fascinating look into the novel's storyline.
Book-binder Abi Sutherland took one of the misprints from Pablo Defendini's limited edition prints of his concept art for a paperback edition of my young adult novel Little Brother and custom-bound a hardcover of the book with it. I am consumed with lust for this one-of-a-kind edition. I hope Abi will let me see it in person some day!
Oh, and while I'm on the subject: the book's just gone into its fifth week on the NYT bestseller list, and it's still on the Indie list (formerly the Book Sense list) and as of this week, it's also on Publishers Weekly's bestseller list! Ho-ah!
Update: Abi sez,
Flickr user Oschene created this papercraft compass rose jar on which is printed the entire text of my novel Little Brother, encoded as "1.7 gazillion microdots": "One has only to unfold the model, scan it and reconstitute it into a readable text."
Jono decided to map all the locales mentioned in Little Brother, using Google's Keyhole -- he's not a San Francisco native, though, and wants help from you all with his way-points (they look pretty good to me!).
It’s about growing up in the near future where things have kept going on the way they’ve been going, and it’s about hacking as a habit of mind, but mostly it’s about growing up and changing and looking at the world and asking what you can do about that. The teenage voice is pitch-perfect. I couldn’t put it down, and I loved it.
