File-Sharing in Israel
Talash has written an excellent blog entry about activity for protecting File-Sharing in Israel. He gives links, information and points to where money can be sent and help can be offered. I should note that I also wrote about it back in June (search for "Countering").
I already sent them an E-mail offering my help. Please help spread the word.
New Job and W2L
I blogged about my new job and about the Israeli Welcome-to-Linux series in Linmagazine. (in Hebrew). In English, I can say that I finally found a work: I'm working from home for an hourly pay for a small consulting/contracting firm. It's Perl/Web/SQL. I'm happy that I now have some steady income, and the work is quite interesting, and I'm learning new concepts and Perl/Apache/SQL/Linux technologies.
I also cover the beginning of the Israeli Welcome-to-Linux series, what I did so far and what remains to be done. We need a lot of help so if you're Israeli, and have some spare time, feel free to volunteer.
The comments there are pretty useless. In one sub-thread a few anonymous people told me that the Jerusalem Linux Club, should be called "JLC" for short, instead of "Jerux". And a few people were somewhat sarcastic about the fact I will now have less time to spend on open-source activities and have less free time.
Advogato Weblog Spam
Seem's like kooler's personal page contains a lot of links to various commercial sites. Now, since he certified a few people (including me), he is linked from their personal Advogato pages, and as a result actually acquires some Google Page rank. Someone in charge should make sure all external links in Advogato have the rel="nofollow" attribute before the problem gets worse.
I have plenty of issues to blog about besides those, but these are the most important topics. So until next time: have fun, hack on and stay cool!
