Writing at Geektime

Featured

I’ve actually been pretty busy publishing on Geektime, Israel’s leading technology news blog. It’s been fun writing about tech again. You can check out my full list of pieces on Geektime, but I’m just going to share a few pieces here.

Can tech solve acute depression? As you can imagine, I wrote this in the wake of Robin William’s tragic death. It has a few morsels of optimism.

How China is shaping the global economy in 5 charts It’s insane how much China’s economic growth dictates the the state of the world economy. For reals: check out this piece and see some graphs made by yours truly. 

Hopefully I’ll have more clips to share soon. Thanks everyone for your support, as always. And if you have any ideas for articles, send them over my way!

These Images Sum Up the Mood in Israel Right Now

Featured

If you’re wondering what it’s like to live in Israel during Operation Protective Edge, this piece should hopefully give you a pretty good picture. Here’s my Mic debut, titled “These Images Sum Up the Mood in Israel Right Now,” about the Israeli-Hamas conflict.

New blog at Times of Israel

Featured

I sent over my latest blog post and not only was it accepted at Times of Israel, but they invited me to become a TOI blogger. Here it is, updated with the events that have unfolded since the operation began. Titled “Waiting for a final ceasefire,” I ask the question on many of our minds: What will bring a moderate, two-state oriented leadership to Gaza?

Any of your thoughts, comments, and shares would be most appreciated. Thank you to everyone who’s reached out to me since the operation began: hoping for it to end as soon as possible.

Getting some Twitter love

Featured

I was super flattered to see that Chris Schroeder, who wrote the groundbreaking book Startup Risingcompliment my most recent PolicyMic piece about women entrepreneurs in the Middle East. His book, which came out in August 2013, describes the tech revolution bubbling all over the MENA region.

Here’s the Tweet love fest:

 

Thanks again Chris for the Twitter love!

New article up: ‘How The Middle East Is Solving the Gender Gap That Silicon Valley Is Ignoring’

Featured

It’s the featured story on PolicyMic‘s entrepreneurship page. I must say, it was fascinating to learn how much more Arab women are involved in tech entrepreneurship in the Middle East than women are in the Western world. Check it out!

First article on PolicyMic up: ‘In Major Breakthrough, an Israeli Company Has Created Water Out of Thin Air’

After a long absence, I’m back to reporting! I wrote a piece about a very cool company called Water-Gen that has managed to create drinkable water from air. Here’s the piece, titled “In Major Breakthrough, an Israeli Company Has Created Water Out of Thin Air.”

I look forward to writing more about Israeli tech, and am open to suggestions. Are there any technologies or companies you think I should know about?

Debut feature in The Atlantic: ‘Does Waze Mark the Beginning of the End of Israel’s Brain Drain?’

Featured

After months of work, I am very happy to announce my first piece in the Atlantic! The headline/subheadline pretty much sum up the article:

Does Waze Mark the Beginning of the End of Israel’s Brain Drain?

The country’s entrepreneurs are torn between opportunities abroad and at home.

As always, let me know what you think, and if you like the article, comment and share away!
