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 working on a 3D model of Chatham House in theStowe School Grounds. Also, a fellow fromCorpus Christi College (Oxford University, UK) is helping me 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. Privately, I've also produced multimedia software for Hollywood, of which the public-domain parts are on this site).
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.
