I don’t easily share my opinions beyond a small circle of close friends – but ever so once in a while, there is a topic that even a shy guy like me feels worth writing about. I’m a software guy, but have a broad set of interests: Biking, skiing, nature. My name is Michael Bechauf, I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. I grew up in Germany, but November 2012 will be my 20th anniversary of being in the United States. I’m a dual U.S. German citizen, which pretty much represents my split-personality mindset. Some of my view are probably very U.S. centric, but I just as much appreciate the deep history and more gentle, consensus-oriented European approach. No, that doesn’t mean I’m a Socialist, no matter what some parts of the Republican party say.
