I know that Vin discovered the flaw in atium but she only had to use that (IMNHO) because they both had duralumin.
I think a more elegant way to do it (since Vin is so flexible and small) would be to ingest a large amount of pewter and burn duralumin to flare pewter far beyond a normal pewter burn.  A person burning atium may be able to see it coming, but if Vin is so fast they can't avoid the attack, atiums advantage is nil.  Hell, if she moves fast enough she might be hitting the target faster than the atium can account for it:

atium effect = X
duralumin flare + pewter speed = Y

If Y > X then atium is more of a hindrance (since the person burning the atium is expecting to see where she'll be but won't be able to follow her)
If Y = X then atium is about as useful as the when both Mistborn are burning atium.

Now a question about atium:
Can atium be flared? It's rather rare so I'm not sure if anybody has tried it or not.
And since we've seen that all metals other than atium can be overflared with Duralumin, why not atium?

Brandon Sanderson / Question about Zane at the end of tWoA [spoilers]

Is Zane really dead? Here are my thoughts:
1) WAAAAAY too good of a protagonist to get rid of in the second book
2) He has a spike. Spiked people aren't that easy to kill
3) Where did the body go?

Brandon Sanderson / Holy crap... Just finished MB2

Wow... Just wow...
After getting through the first two books of Mistborn I am stunned that TOR isn't pushing BS more.  With an amazing writer like him.

Brandon Sanderson / Saze and Sazed

Why are the names interchanged? At first I thought only Kelsier called him Saze as a short nickname but it seems like Brandon couldn't pick which way he wanted to go with it.

Brandon Sanderson / Wow, refreshing!

Some authors may go so far as a blog, but to actually go out and mingle with the peasants (like me) on a forum?  That shows not only dedication to your fans but also a respect for them.
And I've got to say that the moment I found out that Brandon Sanderson was finishing the final book of Wheel of Time I was apprehensive.  I immediately went to amazon and bought all but his kids works and started on Warbreaker.  Warbreaker alone has assuaged my worries and made me glad that he's the on board for A Memory of Light.

Also, wow at releasing Warbreaker as a free ebook WHILE you're writing it.  It's a great way to see an excellent author in his creative process. ^_^
