essentially ditto: I am also a dual-national,
each country on a different continent (see my
CV (link below) if you to know details (and in
the process, please note I'm looking for a new
job!)), and have “outsourced” meself from the
other continent to this one (Europe). years ago,
very voluntarily, and had nothing to do with any
of “anti-” mentioned (real or imagined, sensible
or absurd). and I certainly do not approve of
the USA's current software patent regime.
