An Updated Online Bio for Dr. Ernie Prabhakar
August 8, 2008 § Leave a comment
I’m Ernie — though 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 Apple Product Marketing for 11 years, focusing on UNIX, open source, open standards, and Web 2.0 (yeah, “focus” may not be the right word :-).
These days, my twitter feed is mostly about Rohan, my three-month old son and first child. I am active in my church and numerous online communities. Hobbies including trying to reinvent Western Civilization.
You can learn more about me at LinkedIn, Facebook, Delicious, FriendFeed, Spock, and even Wikipedia.

to this incredibly helpful Mac mini Media Center article, which was
recently updated for the latest Intel minis. I was also encouraged to hang out
on the HTPC Mac Chat
Forum, which has lots of juicy data. The most useful, though, was a
“pre-release” blog post, which I’m excerpting here (anonymously), from someone
who also lives in Santa Clara!
Really Simple Mac Home Theater?

(actually, Santa Clara) after three years in Sacramento. One fun aspect of
buying a new house is the chance to create a home theater solution from scratch.
Of course, the goal is to build it around a Mac! While there’s lots of
resources, most of them seem to be fairly complex, often because they’re dealing
with legacy devices already in place.
The question I’m asking is — if
you’re buying everything from scratch already — what is the simplest possible
solution? [Read more] for my current working hypothesis, and please give me
[Feedback] if you have a better idea.
