Anderson Technical Services: Established a small business for Real Estate Photography. Acquired my FAA remote pilot's license in July 2017 for commercial drone photography. Other services include image processing and printing, and development of electronic products using Arduino and various sensors, including circuit capture, PCB layout, assembly, 3D modeling and 3D printing for packaging, and testing. Also am a consultant for DoTerra Essential Oils.
Anderson Technical Services is just another name for Anderson Creations, which still is an ongoing business. The added name ATS was to differentiate the service offerings.
THRIVE Sandpoint: In August 2012, we sold our home in Gardnerville, Nevada, and bought a 40' Diesel Pusher RV. We spent about a year looking around the southwest, including Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. Based on a suggestion from a police officer friend, we traveled to Sandpoint to check it out. It turns out to be a great location for many reasons. We purchased a home here and sold our RV (We bought an 2000 model RV for vacations).
I have been promoting THRIVE emergency supplies and food storage products, as well as investigating better ways to do nature photography. I have a Phantom 3 Pro drone, and a Plexidrone on order.
My part-time work with FlashPoint Technology as a support for their ongoing intellectual property efforts around my patents continues, as well.
The EduPlex Ministries and EduPlex Connect websites are still up and active. However, my only activity there is to maintain the sites and provide technical support for users.
EduPlex: In January 2009, I founded a for-profit C Corporation based in Nevada, Anderson Creations, Inc. DBA EduPlex. The goal of this for-profit is to take over the intellectual property and engineering product development of the video conferencing system and education platform originally created by Anderson Creations for EduPlex Ministries, Inc. EduPlex will pursue the secular market with these products, while EduPlex Ministries will pursue the religious market under a license from EduPlex.
In summer 2010, EduPlex has begun the process of developing a strategic business plan for the purpose of raising capital for expansion.
EduPlex Ministries, Inc.: In October 2006, I founded a non-profit 501(c)3 ministry for online Christian education worldwide. The EduPlex vision is to meet the crisis in Christian leadership training in the developing world by providing free transformational Biblical, theological and ministry educational materials that transform the heart and equip the mind to produce Christ-like mature leadership: to become the Free Biblical University for the developing world. View the website at eduplex.org.
In 2009, we began development of a new concept in video conferencing, initially as a mechanism to support our education system. The resulting product has been extremely well received, and in April 2010 we opened the system to use unrelated to the education system. 2010 will see the transition of development from Anderson Creations to EduPlex for-profit corporation.
Anderson Creations: As of June 2001, I started a sole proprietor consulting company, originally based in San Jose, CA, but now located in Gardnerville, NV. Primary consulting areas include: website development, eLearning courseware systems development, video conferencing system development, fine art photography, patent/IP analysis and patent disclosure preparation. I also have served in some capacity as an expert witness in patent disputes. For more information, visit my business website at andersoncreations.net.
In 2005, I launched a new business around fine art photography. The website, www.luminousimpressions.com, is a place for skilled fine artists to display and sell their work. My own art is displayed within that site, directly accessible via the domain www.whatgodcreated.com.
BWGI Ministries: I was appointed as CTO for BWGI Ministries, with responsibilities including the technology development of new products, and as technical representative of the organization.
As a board member and webmaster, I created a state-of-the-art e-commerce website for this organization. I continue to function as the webmaster, and most recently created a powerful online eLearning or distance education multimedia system. View the website at www.whatgodintended.com and www.addictionproofing.com.
FlashPoint Technology, Inc.: as IP Advisor, my responsibilities include assisting with patent prosecution and litigation for my patents assigned to FlashPoint. Part time position.
FlashPoint Technology, Inc.: as Chief Technology Officer, my responsibilities included the development of the internet strategy roadmap and architecture for the company, including the recently announced Photivity wireless imaging service. In addition, I am responsible for technology evaluation for current and future planned directions for the company, and for intellectual property development and management. Over a period of 4 years, this included the filing of over 100 patent applications. At this time, approximately 30 of these have either issued or been allowed by the patent office.
In 1999, I enhanced my skill set to include Active Server Pages, Active Data Objects (ASP and ADO) and related dynamic web technology, and have built a number of data-based web sites using this technology. I also developed several Visual Basic applications for the PC.
Prior to the focus on the internet directions for the company, my responsibilities included the technology development for Digitaä OE (Operating Environment), which represents the core technology platform for the company. Additionally, I was extensive involved with customer programs to integrate their requirements into our overall direction without sacrificing the goal of a standard application development platform for digital cameras and related imaging devices. I successfully guided technology development with product shipments including the Kodak DC220, DC260, DC265, and DC290 digital cameras, the Minolta 1500-EX digital camera, and the Epson Print-On stand-alone digital image printer.
While at Apple, I played a significant role in defining the hardware reference platform for the Motorola MPC823 microprocessor, including image capture subsystem and power management gate arrays and sub-CPU's. I defined a new capture and image processing architecture, which is under development at Motorola. More information on the successes of the technology I created can be found at http://www.flashpoint.com.
Apple Computer, Inc. Imaging Group: as Image Capture Engineering Manager and Chief Architect, my responsibilities expanded to include the Host software group, which includes both Macintosh and Windows programmers dedicated to the development of the Host components of QuickTime IC. I worked with external parties and Apple employees to create a spin-off from Apple to continue to develop the QuickTime IC a.k.a. FlashPoint/OS technology (this technology was renamed to Digita™ OE. The spin-off officially took place on November 15, 1996. Over 30 Apple patents were applied for during this period.
Apple Computer, Inc. Imaging Group: as Chief Architect and Camera Software Manager, my responsibilities included leading the development of a new platform - the Apple Image Capture Platform, and QuickTime IC (Image Capture). This technology involved dozens of inventions relating to the application of computer technology to digital cameras, and included the development of a Camera Hardware Reference Platform, an embedded real-time camera operating system called FlashPoint, a powerful command and control language and API sets, and a text-based scripting language for programmatic control of the camera. The technology was so well received by Motorola, Inc., that it changed the direction of its embedded PowerPC microprocessor development to match our requirements for a powerful camera processor. This resulted in the creation of the MPC823 microprocessor.
This well-received technology was presented to many camera and consumer electronics companies throughout the world in an attempt to establish a "de facto" standard by broad licensing. Other responsibilities included participation in product planning, technology acquisition, and business planning. At the end of this period, over 50 inventions still awaited patent application preparation.
Apple Computer, Inc. Imaging Group: as Project and Technical Leader, my responsibilities were to bring to market the development work that I accomplished while in the Advanced Technology Group. This includes building a team consisting of Apple employees, contractors, and employees of a major Japanese consumer electronics manufacturing company. During the first three months on the job, I successfully brought the relationship between Apple and this manufacturing partner to a final stage by making presentations to all levels of their management and engineering organization, including representatives of the Board, the President, and selected upper management members.
Once the team was in place, I developed the overall architecture for both hardware and software for Apple’s next generation image capture product line. This architecture enabled product categories which up to that time had been dreamed about by marketing, but neither Apple or its partners were able to create at the required price point. With this architecture in hand, we were able to persuade key Apple partners to align with us in a completely new direction for future products.
During this period, I managed the Camera Architecture Group, which was responsible to deliver all core technologies, including in-camera operating software as well as hardware system integration and new technology acquisition. Finally, during this period I was responsible for the development of several key, patentable technologies.
Apple Computer, Inc. Advanced Technologies Group: as Manager of the Media Devices Group, I was responsible for building an engineering team to develop next-generation digital image capture PDA’s. My functions include technical leadership, budget and schedule responsibility, technology and program presentations to peers and upper management, responsibility for system hardware and software architecture, and the development of selective technology vendor and partner relationships. The effort to develop a product plan, including technology partner selection, was successful, and the project was transferred to product development.
Apple Computer, Inc. Advanced Technologies Group: as Manager of the Signal Processing and Sound Group, I was responsible for developing Apple’s RealTime Architecture (ARTA), shipped in the summer of 1993 on two separate Macintosh AV computers. This project included vendor and technology selection, contract management, system architecture development and design, processor architecture, and real time OS architecture. I functioned as the system architect, the software and hardware group manager, and provided visionary technical leadership, including support for multiprocessing.
I was directly responsible for the specifications and development of the Singer stereo audio codec (ITT and Crystal), the DSP3210 (AT&T), and the initial work on the Digital Multi-Standard Decoder (DMSD) from Phillips. These parts, or their direct descendants, are still in use today. In addition, I had significant input into the design and architecture of the audio/telecom I/O subsystem and bus arbiter ASIC’s for the AV Macs. This project resulted in 10 patent applications on both software and hardware inventions.
Apple Computer, Inc. CPU Engineering: as Project Leader, I was responsible for the productization of the Apple II video overlay card, introduced in 1988. I was also responsible for developing a RISC-based version of the Apple II and IIgs. This project was canceled for political reasons (no commitment to Apple II line). I began my work on a multimedia computer, which included a video subsystem and signal processing subsystem. This work directly led to the following project.
Clear Light, Inc., Pompano Beach, FL: I started out in Clear Light as the chief engineer, and developed in technical experience and management until I reached the position of Executive Vice President, Engineering & Manufacturing. As the product line architect, I was responsible for the development of seven product families, and shipped over 55 products. The product lines were designed to provide computerized control of media devices, such as movie and slide projectors.
I developed a real time operating system and programming environment for the Apple II computer. Using this technology, we provided interactive systems, including a police training simulator for the City of Miami. During the early years, I set up the manufacturing, purchasing, and quality control functions. I developed a complete inventory control data base, initially on the Apple II, and then with Omnis 3 on the Macintosh, including BOM management, forecasting, ABC analysis, etc. I was also involved in financial, marketing, and venture capital operations for the company.
Electronic System Laboratory, MIT: I developed a multiple font display terminal, which developed into my Master’s Thesis.
Project MAC (Machine Aided Cognition), MIT: I designed language extensions for the AED (ALGOL Extended for Design) project.
University of Rochester E. E. Department Computer Center, Rochester, NY: I designed and implemented a FORTRAN IV compiler w/real time and EAI 680 Analog Computer control extensions, a symbolic assembler, and the run-time library for the IBM 7700 Data Acquisition System.
Leadership Training: I participated in a high-energy and powerful leadership training experience via Klemmer & Associates, including taking part as staff for several seminars. This extensive experience has dramatically impacted my leadership and effective living skills, and put me in a position to take my dreams and visions farther than ever before. See Klemmer.com for more information.
M.I.T., Cambridge, MA: MS/CS and EE/CS. in Computer Science,. Thesis title: "Automatic Multiple Font Generation on CRT Computer Display Terminals." Also E.E. in Computer Science (equal to Ph.D. in course hours, but w/o doctoral thesis). Area of specialization: Artificial Intelligence.
University of Rochester, Rochester, NY. B.S. in Electrical Engineering. Graduated with High Honors (highest in Electrical Engineering).
I was nominated as Inventor of the Year by the Silicon Valley Intellectual Property Law Association (SVIPLA): "Just about every digital camera on the market today includes one or more of Eric’s inventions. The key invention was to make the digital camera a software device rather than a hardware device. This technology involved dozens of inventions relating to the application of computer technology to digital cameras."
