My life in the center of the world -- musings on my family, community (local, global, physical and virtual), people and more. Oh and of course, a few words on tech related start-ups, within the context of living in the ulimate start-up with humble goal of repairing the world. Venture backed by over 3,000 years of history, thought, culture, and angst.

See this interview with my good friend Jeff Pulver on the "State of Now" and the "Real Time Internet." Oh, and by the way, Jeff thinks Twitter is worth billions. Now. Well, good thing Jeff is public that he is a shareholder, we wouldn't want him to be objective about this company...
No words can describe the tragedy that has befallen the Jewish people and the Ramon family. Asaf Ramon, the son of the legendary Ilan Ramon, the first Israeli astronaut, who followed his father's footsteps in the Israeli Air Force, died today when his F-16 fighter jet broke apart over the southern Judean desert.
We can only hope that the Ramon family finds some solace knowing so many mourn along with them. May they never be the victims of horrible statistics again, and only know joy.
And may the memory of Asaf Ramon be a blessing to us all, reminding us of the selflessness that still exists in our nation.
