About MC Evillest Coven
I started out writing BASIC adventure games on the Apple IIc when I was 8. I have since worked on planet-hunting telescopes, mainframe assembler, homing devices, systems integration and migration, SMTP clusters, antispam message analysis, ajax web applications and mobile information services.
I am available for work at the moment - to find out whether I'm right for your project it's probably best to start by downloading my CV, and if you like what you see get in touch. I am interested in both developer and sysadmin-like projects. Please feel free to get in touch with me by emailing 'steve' at this domain or by phoning me.
My current professional interests are in multivariate analysis and it's application to strategic and decision problems (such as classification and planning) especially in the light of machine learning. I am also interested in scalablity, monitoring & forecasting, and distributed control systems. There are some fields in which human ingenuity outperforms any algorithm, and I am interested in systems which effectively bridge this divide, allowing the machine to augment the mind and vice versa.
In my own time I like to work on algorithmic and semi-algorithmic composition/synthesis, most often with Csound, and taking whatever unusual languages or concepts I can find and trying to figure out how to listen to them.
I'm a Free Software/BSD Unix/Linux kind of person. Python is my weapon of choice.
This site mainly exists in order to serve as my personal propaganda organ, but since my contributions to humanity these days tend to sit in the fields of music and software it'll also serve as a container for my outputs. The name derives from a (near) anagram - but a CNOT gate is a type of quantum logic gate that features in important foundational theories. There is also a famous passage in Three Dialogues Between Hylas And Philonous where Berkeley argues for the kind of extreme empiricist views I hold. My 'real' name is an anagram as well.
