  • Requiem for a modem

    November 20, 2011

    Two days ago I’ve shut down the longest running electronics device I ever owned. The device was my an Alcatel Speedtouch Home ADSL modem which I got circa 2001 when I was lucky enough to get an ADSL line at home. It was only turned off when there was a power failure or when I […]

  • “Those who don’t know history are destined to repeat it.”

    August 24, 2011

    I know the title is a bit alarming, but that was my first thought after reading @bryce‘s latest post “The Rising Generation“. Briefly, he mentioned a 25 y/o asking a question on Quora about how was life before everyone had a cell phone and no one talked a lot or texted in public areas. Bryce […]

  • Message in a bottle

    December 22, 2009

    Launching a startup is like sending a message in a bottle. If the message is not clear, no one will come to visit your lonely island or send you a postcard back. When you launch your startup, your online presence (i.e. website, twitter account, facebook page, etc) and the buzz you manage to create online via the online official […]

  • New programming languages forces you to re-think a problem in a fresh way (or why do we need new programming languages. always.)

    November 13, 2009

    Whenever a new programming language appears some claim its the best thing since sliced bread (tm – not mine ;-) ), other claim its the worst thing that can happen and you can implement everything that the language provides in programming language X (assign X to your favorite low level programming language and append a […]

  • OpenID 2.0 Directed Identity and Emails

    January 27, 2008

    A couple of days ago I’ve talked with Eran Hammer-Lahav about an idea I had regarding his post about using Emails as OpenID identifiers. During the talk another sub-idea came into light in regards to OpenID 2.0 Directed Identity and Emails. While I’m not sure if this has been discussed before (I didn’t have much […]

  • Jerusalem ROCKS! Tickets are on sale

    July 27, 2007

    Jeff posted a couple of days ago that the tickets for the Jerusalem ROCKS! event are on sale at Hadran.co.il. Go here to read more about Jerusalem ROCKS! I also wrote a little bit about Jerusalem ROCKS! here. Jeff is looking for bloggers from both Israel and around the world who would like to cover […]

  • iPhoneDevCamp, iPhone, Safari and Microformats

    July 7, 2007

    I wish I could attend iPhoneDevCamp but unfortunately I won’t be in the area (or in the right country for that matter ;-) ). I just read Chris’ post about iPhoneDevCamp and I think these are the right reasons to make the iPhoneDevCamp. There are a few facts that support Chris’ view: In the first […]

  • Google Apps for your Domain, DNS, CNAME and Security

    June 4, 2007

    I’ve recently started to use Google Apps for Your domain to host my private emails on the sandler.co.il domain. Google Apps for your domain is quite cool and was very easy to configure. I mainly moved to it due to the unbelievable amounts of SPAM and I didn’t have the power or time to configure […]

  • My Google Development Community Piece was referenced at ZDNet

    May 30, 2007

    2 days ago I wrote a post about the lack of Google Israel’s involvement in the development community. It seems that in most of the places (I’m sure in the US, I’m not sure if the rest of the development centers in South American and Europe have the same involvement) where Google has development centers […]

  • Google Israel – Where Art Thou in the Development Community?

    May 28, 2007

    I know that Google‘s original Googleplex at Mountain View is very active for non googlers. There are frequent open lectures there and they host a bunch of other things like Summer of Code (well, not always host, but sponsor and make sure people know about it) and Google Developer Day (which is happening at 10 […]
