Have you ever used a typewriter?
When I was twelve, and before I really knew how to type.
Who's your favorite fictional journalist?
Spider Jerusalem of Transmetropolitan (by Warren Ellis and Darick Robertson). He's a drugged-out, tattooed crusader for justice. With a cat.
What's your favorite social network?
Twitter. It feels much like sitting quietly in the corner at a very smart party, which is my normal mode of socializing.
