Israel Tech Scene 2006-2011

I attended a number of tech events in Israel – really I could have gone to Israel straight after uni, 4 years earlier.

The first event I attended was the IVA Annual Conference 2006 – press release. This was a great conference and Shimon Peres even accepted an award. Amazing days just before mass use of smartphones!

I had a few meetings in Herzliya Pituach after that event in order to raise finance for GrooveTip or whatever came next.

In July 2008, I went to TWS2008.

In August 2008 I attended iDrink #9 at Beach Bar in Herzliya Pituach.

Then in September I made it to Mobile Monday.

On 14 Feb 2009 while building, I attended the tech workshop Eurekamp.

(See me at timecodes 3.14, 3.22, 6:03, 10:38, 12:20)

Below pic 1 below was used for an Ormus King 1 scene, in pic 3 Yossi Vardi can be seen sitting. Pic 4 are notes for the talk I gave – Web Conglomerate.

After Twitya, I attended the TechAviv Town Hall Meeting on 2 Sep ’09 having already begun work on Bopgig.

Then I submitted a business plan on 17 Nov ’09 into the TechAviv Angels group for judgement regarding Bopgig.

I proceeded with Bopgig using US-based developers after that comp.

In April 2011, I went to TheMarker Com.Vention while still working on Bopgig.

And that was my final tech conference attended in Israel… for now!

This is a horrifying photo and a terrible situation for the onlookers. What do you do?

After thinking about the situation for a couple of days, I realized ALL the emergency services could have been called (911) and this could well have saved George Floyd.

Requesting the fire department:
There’s a man trapped under a car, he can’t breathe. He appears trapped underneath a knee. It appears to be a police officer’s leg but the situation suggests that it may be someone impersonating a police officer – I don’t know. In any case, it’s an urgent life-threatening situation.

Requesting the police:
We think there’s someone impersonating a policeman –  we don’t know. We’re too afraid to intervene into a possible homicide taking place. Even if it is a police officer, it is not just a neck but someone’s rights being crushed to death. In any case, it’s an urgent life-threatening situation.

Requesting an ambulance:
There’s a man dying due to suffocation. His airways are blocked by someone’s knee pressing against his neck. In any case, it’s an urgent life-threatening situation.

Interestingly, there is a story in the bible regarding Moses killing an Egyptian slave master and that is something to think about. What would Moses have done?
