About the Author

George Autry was born and raised in Amarillo, Texas. He is descended on his mother’s side from the earliest Anglo settlers in Texas, and on his father’s from three generations of printers and newspapermen. George held various jobs in print shops throughout his youth and university years. After graduating from North Texas State University with a B.S. in Physics, and a newfound interest in computer programming, he took a job with Texas Instruments, writing machine language code for 4-bit microcomputers.

After moving with his wife, Meralyn, to take a position at T.I.’s Johnson City, Tennesee facility, he developed an operating system that greatly decreased development time for microcomputer control systems,  supported the CAD (Computer Aided Design) function within his department and helped develop a PC based CAE (Computer Aided Engineering) workstation.

Later, he moved to Lynchburg, Virginia, with Meralyn and their two sons. He went to work as a senior software engineer with GE Mobile Communications, later acquired by Ericsson, where he was awarded 2 patents for his work in airtime billing systems and IP networking over mobile radio. Later he became involved with establishing the software CMM and PSP/TSP within his software development group. He is the founder of the Lynchburg Libertarian League.

George and Meralyn later moved to Fairfax, and then Paris, Virginia. George worked for TRW Systems, later acquired by Northrop Grumman, as a senior process improvement analyst and SEI certified CMMI HM Lead Appraiser.

After retirement, George kept busy managing his capital estate and reading in the fields of economics, technology, and post-statist ethics. He was an early adopter and vocal advocate of Bitcoin. George and Meralyn moved back to Lynchburg, where they earned a significant fraction of their income through participation in the sharing economy, and their investments in the crypto-economy.
