Where we work ...
Hi, here is my cubicle (or a 2 by 3 meter separated part of the office
space garanteed with no windows) at Actuate Inc., a software company in South
San Francisco. This means every day a commute of 50 miles
(or 80km) one way. But I'm not alone. Every day I share this 1.5 hour journey
with thousands of other commuters ... bumper to bumper.
You certainly want to know, what I'm doing here all day long ... well, I work
in the International Operations (or IOPS as we call it) department and run the
world-wide Actuate Extranet. Also I am the liaison between the Headquarter here in USA
and our offices in Germany.

His own office (!) with a huge window front from wall to wall is located in the middle of
the Santa Teresa country park. When he is not watching the birds or deer, he leads
projects at the International Technical Support Center
of IBM, writes books (the so called redbooks) or travels around the world which he calls
