Why English? The background and the reasoning

by daniel on August 3, 2008

I have several languages in my head:

  • I was born in Argentina and Spanish is the language I used for communicating with my family.
  • I immigrated to Israel and since I’m communicating with the rest of the world in Hebrew.
  • I studied programming in English since I was 12 years old.
  • I work in System Engineering in a multi national company, where the formal language is English.


This blog is about System Engineering and other technical stuff, so it was obvious to me that I should write in English.


This post is really about a way of thinking: of taking facts, analyzing, deducing and coming to a conclusion. The conclusion may become an action, depending on the situation.


For me, writing in English is the way for expressing the ideas and communicating with people outside of my direct professional contacts.
