I began My Science Fiction Adventure in June 2019, documenting my thoughts on the future of work and my experience in working in a salaried position for only a short time each week. The blog builds on my article Science Fiction and the Economics of Utopia, published in April 2018.
Between 2012 and 2015 I wrote a blog on technology and society called I Don’t Want to Be A Nerd! I discontinued that blog due to work and lifestyle changes, but many of my articles on technology and society (below) began as thoughts on that blog.
Society for Creative Anachronism
I love novels and always wanted to write one or two when I grew up, but instead found myself writing scientific articles as part of my PhD and postdoctoral research (see above). More recently I’ve turned out some flash fiction for AntipodeanSF and SciPhiJournal. You can also find some longer pieces at my Smashwords page.
- Visitations From God Leave Us As Confused As Ever. SciPhiJournal 2020/1, March 2020.
- The Tyranny of the Majority. AntipodeanSF 258, March 2020.
- Satisfaction. AntipodeanSF 236, March 2018.
- Do Not Reply. AntipodeanSF 229, August 2017.

- Guesswork. AntipodeanSF 182, August 2013.
- A Future For Despair. AntipodeanSF 132, June 2009.
I’ve also written a couple of articles about fiction:
- Policy challenges for a wise monarch. Aurealis #129, to appear.
- Science fiction and the economics of Utopia. Aurealis #109, April 2018.
I’ve published numerous technical articles on digital watermarking, digital rights management, privacy, and other topics. See my academic page for details.
