Hi, and welcome to iHack, formerly known as, ‘Earnest Probe-hacker’. My name is actually Ernest Prabhakar, which I realize can be confusing, but I needed something distinctive that captured the “hacker” (in the MIT sense) flavor of this site. Plus, I’ve actually seen my name spelled that way (or worse!).
I go by “Dr. Ernie” on the Internet to make it easier to Google me; I have a Ph.D. in Physics which I almost never use, at least directly. I’ve been in Product Marketingfor 11 years, focusing on UNIX, open source, open standards, and Web 2.0 (yeah, “focus” may not be the right word .
Needless to say, the opinions expressed here are my own, not those of my employer, unless explicitly marked otherwise.
