Israel Diary: Hyper-Alert Security Guards, Hyper-Creative Tech Geeks, and an Upcoming Interview with President Peres

Hi Arianna,

It was a pleasure meeting and listening to you at GarageGeeks.

It always amuses me no end that Yossi Vardi chooses a dilapidated garage in the middle of nowhere as the venue for his esteemed guests' presentations.

I think it's a marvelous venue because it creates a wonderful freshness that is beneficial to everyone involved as it pulls the plug on any possibility for the silly posturing that all too often accompanies these types of occasions.

At Garagegeeks we are all on level ground which is, in a word, FUN : )

BTW I have some nice photos of you and Yossi from the evening (all licensed as CC):


Cheers and enjoy the rest of your visit here in Israel
