Just wanted to say a quick but hearty thank you to Omer Van Kloeten for having organized the fifth Bloggers Dinner. It took place yesterday at "Ad HaEtzem" restaurant in Airport City, Israel and was a fantastic experience. This was my first attendance at a Bloggers Dinner and I believe it was also the largest in the series of events arranged by Omer so far. A small note on "Ad HaEtzem" at Airport City. The restaurant was a bit tricky to find for me. I actually spent 15 minutes at the nearby "Aircafe" coffee shop before...

I will be attending Microsoft Israel's Developer Academy II event at Airport City, Israel this Tuesday (27/11/2007). Throughout the day I will be attending at least 5 of the lectures (haven't finalized which yet) and I will be liveblogging both here and via my facebook profile. You're invited to keep track of my progress through the day and if you're there, you're welcome to (physically!) poke me face to face :) It's a great opportunity to bridge the gap between virtual and physical presence. See you at the Dev Ac!Uri

I will be going offline for a couple of weeks, starting tomorrow. This is not some innovative web2.0 experiment intended to explore the possibilities of living without email. Rather, it is a much more mundane call to reserve army service :).
I will be back with a vengeance come May 1st, with further coverage of some cool new features from outbrain.com, plus a review of Google Calendar and the wonderful ways you can make it work together with Outlook 2007.
See you in a couple of weeks.

Turns out: I am: William GibsonThe chief instigator of the "cyberpunk" wave of the 1980s, his razzle-dazzle futuristic intrigues were, for a while, the most imitated work in science fiction. Which science fiction writer are you? I couldn't ask for a bigger compliment!
