A couple of weeks ago I enjoyed hosting O'Reilly guys (and girl) in Israel. Here is a venturebeat article which covers this visit. The participants were Ben Lorica (chief scientist), Roger Magoulas (director of research) and Gina Blabler (VP conferences).
O'Reilly team came to examine the Israeli high tech scene. We are interested in promoting an Israeli Strata conference in Israel and already assembled a few companies who would like to support this effort. Anyone interested in helping promote this is welcome to connect.
