Venus Transit

Yes, I have seen* it!

*given a suitable definition** of “seeing”

**It is not advisable to look directly at the Sun under any circumstances. Therefore the Venus transit can be safely viewed only via some instrument such as a telescope. I saw it via a more complex instrument, which consisted of a telescope, camera, Internet connection ( and my PC. The fact that I did not see it at real time does not really matter.

I am deaf since birth. I played with big computers which eat punched cards and spew out printouts since age 12. Ever since they became available, I work and play with desktop size computers which eat keyboard keypresses and spew out display pixels. Among other things, I developed software which helped the deaf in Israel use the telephone network, by means of home computers equipped with modems. Several years later, I developed Hebrew localizations for some cellular phones, which helped the deaf in Israel utilize the cellular phone networks. I am interested in entrepreneurship, Science Fiction and making the world more accessible to people with disabilities.
