I love programming and software development, and enjoy the Linux stack - from Python and Java to rsync and awk.

My current position is CTO at Vioozer. We are developing an interesting location-based real-time search engine based on users answering from their mobile devices.

I live at Kibbutz Zikim, Israeland have B.Sc in Computer Science and humanities from the Hebrew university, Jerusalem.

comment What is the meaning of “sticks” as a measurement unit?
@JoeBlow The question is purely linguistic. I travelled to Israel (not the UK), and I don't smoke.

comment English word for the comma between three digits
@donothingsuccessfully That's right, but most parsers, and regex splitters, would split the string by any whitespace. This include unicode spaces, newlines, nbsp and so on.

@EdwinAshworth Using spaces makes computer parsing problematic, because 123 456 is ambiguous.
