a brazilian female geek has developed conductive makeup and eyelashes to make your visage into an input device.

I'm so looking forward to somebody repurposing this idea for an _out_put device; just imagine the fun that can be had if you could shockprod people remotely...

I find Charlie Stross' book series "The Laundry Files" absolutely hilarious.

It's a wild and wicked mix of Lovecraft, a bit of computer science, general IT, Dilbert, the BOFH, Deighton - and maybe Aleister Crowley.

Highly recommended - if you're somebody who appreciates the BOFH stories, Acts of Gord or Dilbert.

(Btw, not recommended - at least not by me: Accelerando. I couldn't stand it.)

if so i'd like to recommend bela tarr's satantango - which is really long, very dark, pretty weird but cool. the minimal music matches the epic pace perfectly.

Reading the usual heartwarmingly nasty postings on the esteemed samizdata blog, I fondly remembered Cory Doctorow's story When Sysadmins Ruled the Earth (which you can publish, read, sing, yodel or even download here).
