The Philosophical Story of Beatrice Satmary

This is not her real name.
She does not exist.
She cannot be found in the Internet.
She does not live in Hungary.
The image in the old photo over there is not really her.
Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy are her classmates.
Her name will be whispered by at least three participants in the long-waited for First Contact.

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.
