Co-Founder with Ori Lahav of ILTechTalks which facilitates knowledge ex-change between Israeli technology companies by ex-changing professional talks.
Founder of Crictor an independent communication group covering the technology and people that Make Israeli technology. Crictor also serves as a platform for community projects.
Deeply interested in Open Source culture and communities since 2000 when I first heard of the Free and Open Source phenomena. Wrote my MSc at the London School of Economics (LSE) about ways in which the Open Source software development model could be adapted for commercial projects according to the case study of a fascinating company named CollabNet. Initiated the Linux@School project with many volunteers from the Israeli Open Source community.
I'm interested in further researching the organization and management structures of Open Source communities and the ways in which these may be adapted in commercial settings.
