I love writing and wish I had more time to do it. I wrote a book about the Internet published in 1997 which sold more than 20,000 copies (it's now out of print). In 2014 I produced a slightly revised version as a historical record. You can read some details and buy a copy here.
In July 2014 I published Volume 1 of Things I Think About, an anthology of articles and speeches from 1999 to 2003. You can see more about this book and buy a copy here.
I am working on two books which I hope will be published later this year or early next year, one about alternative medicine and the other about uncritical thinking. I have another book in the early development stage. It will exploit my experience over many years of management and consulting to highlight some of the things that good business managers don't do.
The third book I published in 2014 is The Bear's Progress - SkeptoBear's World Tour 2004, setting out the adventures of a group who went from Sydney to Las Vegas to attend James Randi's Amazing Meeting in 2004. You can see more about this book and buy a copy here.
In the 2004 Eureka Awards I received three nominations in the categories "Reed New Holland Eureka Science Book Prize" and "Australian Government Eureka Prize for Science Journalism". Unfortunately I wasn't a winner, but there is always another year. (In a moment of alcohol-induced honesty, one of the judges told me that my journalism submissions were excellent but the judges decided that online publications would not be considered, even if the material had appeared elsewhere in print. This policy was changed in later years as it was inconsistent with accepting entries for work that had only appeared on radio, television or film. The book prize was won by an established author for a proposed book on a subject well outside his area of expertise. The winning book was never published.) The Eureka Prizes are a project of the Australian Museum and are Australia's premier science awards. You can read more about the Eureka Prizes here.
I'm a Freelance Pro member of the Media Entertainment and Arts Alliance, which means I have a Code of Ethics to comply with. If you would like me to write for your publication or media outlet please use the email link at the bottom of the page to contact me.
There are some commentaries and magazine articles I have written. Some of these have appeared in the following publications. (You can see the articles ordered by publication here.)
As well as writing for various publications I also write a lot of things at my online magazine The Millenium Project.
