DrErnie is a long-time MacPorts participant, whose day job involves marketing at Our Corporate Sponsor. He developed one of the first GUIs for what was then called DarwinPorts, but it quickly rotted on the vine. These days he spends most of his (hacking) time messing around with Ruby.
P.S. Yes, he really is a doctor, but it is just a Ph.D. in a field totally unrelated to anything he's doing now, so feel free to ignore it (and him).
