Hey everyone. My name is Rory Price and I'm a science-fiction writer. I recently self-published my first novel, Opt Out. It follows a group of free software activist who get very worried about a new form of invasive proprietary technology known as smart implants.
Other than that, I'm a dedicated free software user and take privacy very seriously. I'm very interested in storytelling in general.

For the longest time in my life, I really didn't care that I'm asexual. I just piled it up as another thing I don't enjoy. Recently, I've been trying to be more open about it, because I remember how confused I used to feel about it.
It's crazy, the amount of pressure society puts on young people to participate in an act that's supposed to be intimate. People should know that they don't have to do anything that makes them uncomfortable, which is why I talk about my asexuality openly now.
It's okay to be taught stuff in school that you'll never need again in your life. Because if you only know and do what you need, it's called survival, not life.
It took me quite a long time to realise of, yes, I never needed to learn about Greek mythology using poems written by people in the 18/19th century, but it's good to know.
There might be better things to learn, but there is basically nothing one should not learn. Knowledge is human kind's greatest treasure. Enjoy learning it.
