What I did last Saturday night

Like other 200,000 Israelis, I attended Itzhak Rabin’s memorial event, which was held in Rabin Square, Tel Aviv, Israel.
After the event, I wrote an article about my take of the event’s
accessibility to hearing impaired people.

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.
