Hi there,

my name’s Karl H. Beckers. I was born in the last century’s early seventies in New York City. Though that at least makes me a U. S. citizen I grew up in what was at the time Western Germany. A trained Historian and Literary Critic I’ve become an IT professional long ago, used to work as a consultant in the Identity Management space for a number of years, did some software development for a while, some consultancy again, and now help with running an LDAP service.

In 2,000 I finally married my girl-friend Monika and we are now mostly proud, sometimes tired parents of a ${currentYear - 2002}-year old daughter.

The little spare time that is left after work and family have staked their claims, used to be  spent on development of open source software, such as the screencam software xvidcap or the mobile depth-of-field calculator dofCalc, though that has become rare. I also enjoy taking photos, a lot, and bouldering.

For more information take a look at the links filed under “personal”.
