My name is Ernest Meyer, and this is my private site. I was going to be sitting some courses at my local University, Chico State, but itsElder's Program has closed due to COVID until Spring 2022. Now I am instead spsonsoring coral reef restoration, and creating a 3D model ofStowe House in Cinema4D. Also, I have been working with a fellow fromCorpus Christi College (Oxford University, UK) to set up aPhilosophy of Science Prize.
Curriculum Vitae. I was born in Washington DC in 1960 and earned scholarships to Eton House preparatory (now closed) andStowe School (Bucks, UK). AtOxford University, I satPPP. For seven years, I worked in technology journalism (for a sample, seethis ACM Archive). For 25 years, I was a spec writer, analyst, digital architect, and release engineer on products such asApple's iPhone-1 CPU,AT&T's first 802.11 chipset,Aureal's Vortex ASICs, set-top boxes and servers forCable & Wireless andTeleWest,Intel's Pentium-1,Oki Electric Co.'s PCS Chipsets,Oracle's Network Computers, andSeaChange streaming video services as used by Netflix. Privately, I've also produced multimedia software for Hollywood, of which the public-domain parts are on this site). My audio software has been heard on the TV series 30 Something,Kings, and Sony TV Classics, as well as in the bands Shpongle and Younger Brother.
Gun-Control Work Status. This started in 2015, when I asked 300 members of the newly reformed Tea Party if they'd shoot someone for stealing apples from an appletree in their back yard. And ~90% said they would, regardless whether it was only a child. In a few years, I could be resumingmy work for the Administration again, now under Biden. But I'm praying Biden's gun-control initiatives of June 2021 will mean I won't have to. Before Biden's speech on it (see the NYT reporthere), The NRA-ILA started fighting it already (seehere).
Skills. I continue to refine some software skills. I've coded inSNOBOL,x86 and6502 assembly language,QuickBasic &Power Basic,Gnu GCC, Windows 3.1 & NT WDM,Visual Studio C/C++,gen~ codebox, and PHP with MySQL/HTML/CSS/DOM. My application skills includeAdobe (Acrobat Pro, Dreamweaver, FrameMaker, and PhotoShop),Daz3D (Carrara & Hexagon), Smith MicroPoser,Trimble Sketchup, SideFXHoudini 3D, Native InstrumentsReaktor,Cycling'74 MAX,Oracle X, andApache withMySQL andAdMiner.
