Have you heard of Facebook?

It's mid-2005. I'm sitting across from the CEO of a growing startup in what I hope - as a 23-year-old leaving the path of a journalism career to actually pay some bills - is the last interview for the job. 'Guerrilla marketing'. The CEO is kind, but my mind is racing as he now asks... Continue Reading →

Like the Rabbanut… on Facebook.

A couple months ago, out in Jerusalem, we noticed that kashrut certificates for restaurants seem to have been updated: Hmmm... I didn't even see it at first, but that ubiquitous blue F doesn't stay out of your eyesight for too long. The Jerusalem Rabbanut on Facebook - how kosher can that be? So - would...

Fifty-Two Frames: Out of Focus.

Some weeks I let the photo come to me, some weeks I try too hard, and some weeks I have one idea, and I do it once, and it works. I liked the yellow of the background to kinda indicate old vs new, giving the papers a parchment glow. But I sacrificed the natural color... Continue Reading →

Fifty-Two Frames: Black and White.

I struggled with this week's B&W theme on Fifty Two Frames. To go interracial? To go Charedi? To go abstract? In the end I decided, who doesn't want to start their week with emo DR. Seuss? Week 2: Black and White. Blasphemy: A darker Dr. Seuss

Fifty-Two Frames: Themeless.

Ten years ago, a dozen or so of my college friends banned together and got me a birthday gift in honor of my impending semester abroad: a Canon EOS Rebel, my first and only SLR. We had a ball together, but then came digital, and I've been mainly rocking out to little Elphs ever since.... Continue Reading →

When you mix Jews, legalities, Facebook…

Facebook + Jew vs Jew + lawsuit? Not the first time this has happened, Mark Zuckerberg(s)! Israeli entrepreneur becomes Mark Zuckerberg to fight Facebook But we had to have known some Israeli would have the balls to do this: Israeli entrepreneur Rotem Guez has legally changed his name to Mark Zuckerberg in response to legal...
