The Earth Hour and the Deaf (again :-( )

At 20:00 tonight, lights are due to be turned off for an hour to raise consciousness of the environment.

Again, I’ll have to reluctantly boycott this event as I boycotted a similar event two years ago, and due to the same reasons.

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.
