Liam Carton has had more job diversity than he cares to remember, but mostly he has focused on lecturing and software development. He has run a number of businesses over the years and now runs TribalContact, a technology start-up focused on encrypted web-based communication.
He has always advocated for human rights and civil liberties, and remains deeply concerned with the direction that the world is taking. He is convinced that, without significant action by ordinary people, a virtual panopticon will soon be completed. He believes that if this ever comes to fruition then it can never be undone. "The entire world is allowing its most basic freedoms to be eviscerated with virtually no backlash, no anger, no uprising. Once these freedoms are utterly lost they can never be regained. And we shall all become slaves to the tyranny of the oppressive eye of this perfect surveillance state."
His first book, "The Time Traveller" is currently undergoing editing and review, and is expected to be published in early 2014. A dystopian futurological novel of the not-so-distant future, while even darker and more bleak that The Kubic Kat, it extends upon the same themes and concerns.
