Announcement   Announcement : Ben Fuller, Project D, QuickNibble, ReplayTV inventor died 9/11
   posted by Anonymous on 28-Mar-2003 13:44:32 (2783 reads)
Ben?s fans and friends might be interested to learn that on his Dell tower server is a product, an Amiga emulator, Amigaforever which was just renewed and updated. Some dreams just never die.


Ben retired of sorts June 2001 from SONICblue (ReplayTV) which by the way just went bankrupt. He was on a ?Hiatus?, busy creating ?art? with his Olympus E-10 and posted on his photo gallery web, www.zoil.com. The family and estate are keeping the work alive.

Contributions to Ben?s biography welcomed. Send photos, stories and text to ggfuller@yahoo.com or benfuller@exreplaytv.com.


From the dust....a voice January 22, 1998?..
This was addressed To: "Studio16 List" <studio16@thule.no

1986 was when AAUG [Arizona Amiga Users Group] was founded by Ben and some of you I believe. FYI.

This from Ben,
"First, an introduction:

Hi there, I'm Ben Fuller, at one time I was a Senior Software
Engineer for SunRize Industries -- makers of the AD516/Studio16 Digital Audio
Workstation software and hardware. Among other things, I was responsible for the
automated mixer in v3.0, and the enhanced SMPTE handling in v3.01. I
also did the Amiga side of the SoundSwitch software -- including getting
it to work seamlessly in the Video Toaster interface, and the killer Arexx
API. I created the BigBlocks utility. I also served as the Build Master at
SunRize.

At one time I was one of the most Die Hard Fanatic Loyalist Developer
On A Jihad To Bring The Whole World To Amiga -- at age 17 I was one of the
first and quite probably the youngest Commercial Developer (# CC01039 --
which for those that don't know, means I was one of the commercial developers
that attended the 2nd Annual Amiga Developer's Conference in November 1986
-- which was when CATS started the commercial and registered developer
programs -- the numbering started at CC01000). I was there at the
beginning, and I was there at the end (which, by the way, was in
early 1994 when the engineering efforts relating to Amiga inside Commodore
effectively came to a complete stop). I was very depressed for some time...

Then, in late 1994 a funny thing happened... I was lucky enough to be part of
the Chicago (aka Win95) beta program... Preemptive-multitasking, 32-bit
addressing, open device architecture, device independent everything,
decent development tools... It was like deja vu all over again... I
discovered that (like it says on the Deathbed Vigil t-shirt) there is life after
Commodore.?

Glenn,

I think it's safe to say we all wish you and yours our deepest condolences for your loss. I personally loved ProjectD's interface and simplicity to use (back in the days).

Do you mind if I ask how he passed? Was it illness?

Again, I'm sorry for your loss.

It was not illness.

Benjamin Glenn Fuller was born May 5, 1969 in Flint, Genesee County, Michigan. His career and life spans 33 years and his working years began really as early as 13 years old. Due to his practice to emulate a hero of his, RJ Mical, an Amiga pioneer; Ben?s working habits were long and irregular. That habit never changed to his death. He died sometime before September 11, 2002. The cause of death is listed accident on the original death certificate.

July, 2003 a 2nd police investigation was more troubling than conclusive. The initial investigation was botched. The roommates had stopped communication with the family Dec 2002 and the manner the 2nd investigation was executed compounded the reason of silence only known to them. Dec 19, 2003 an independent investigation report confirmed foul play and opinion on time of death agreeing with the initial coroner pathologist?s finding exceeding 48 hours preceding 9/11/2002 19:15 hours.

The independent investigations refute accident as a cause. The estate is confident
what is not the causes. The investigation is still open.
