Blog Day 2007

Today it’s the 3rd Blog Day.

More information about the yearly Blog Day.

Five of the blogs, which I read and recommend are:

  • Freedom to Tinker ( – … is your freedom to understand, discuss, repair, and modify the technological devices you own.
  • Lauren Weinstein’s Blog ( – about Internet topics, privacy and other issues relating to technology and society. The author has been active in the Internet privacy scene ever since its inception.
  • I’m just a simple DBA on a complex production system ( – Writing about all things production. Especially Oracle databases. The author writes about her work life as a DBA – tips, difficulties, conferences, etc.
  • Web2Spot ( – Covering Web 2.0 news, trends & companies made in Israel.
  • Hope is the thing with feathers ( – Shira Horesh’s Hebrew language blog about her life and struggles as a young woman, who got deafened at late age.

The above are only five of the 88 blogs which I routinely scan and read via their RSS feeds, using the Akregator. The first two blogs are relatively famous, and are important to follow because the price of freedom is eternal vigilance. The other three are less known.

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.
