These are questions that we pretend other people frequently ask me.

I am Daniel Dersch. Hello.

You won’t.

Liberals tend to think I’m a conservative, and conservatives tend to think I’m a liberal. I’m not registered as a Democrat or Republican.

No. I used to identify as such, but libertarians tend to be crazy. I’ll write a blog about this sometime.

I do cloud stuff. Think Amazon Web Services, Azure and Google Cloud. I’m still trying to figure out if I want professional and technical content to be on this blog or not. My guess is it will find a way in. Who knows.
