I captured yet another inspiring talk by OurCrowd.com CEO, +Jon Medved  at the Israel Dealmakers Summit in NYC.

Jon masterfully frames his talks in historical context, provides facts and figures that supports his narrative, and leaves us all thinking about what the future ahead may bring.
Have a watch and please share.

Just in case you missed it, above and beyond the noise, the hype, the parties and the haters, my belief is that NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration was THE most important exhibitor / participant at SXSW 2015.

Here's why....
Pick up your smartphone phone and take a hard look at it.

Finding the best local content in your area can be a challenge no matter where you are, and starting this coming Friday, if you are headed to #SXSW, you will get a chance to really experience the but the problem is compounded with large-scale events like SXSW, where the sheer amount of things to do can become overwhelming....  my column in @The Times of Israel....

If you have a smart - transportation focused idea for a startup, this is your opportunity to apply for the next class of the EcoMotion Smart Transportation Accelerator.

+Boaz Mamo  Lior Zeno , and Inbal Ron  are doing something really incredible and in a wonderful space on the campus of Tel Aviv University.

This opportunity is open to all transportation related startups from around the world. You get $24K, they take no equity, and you get to be part of Israel's startup ecosystem....

My column in "The Times of Israel" has the whole story.....

Over the last four months, I have had the opportunity to speak and mentor startups at just about every major accelerator here in Startup Nation – Israel. In doing so, I’ve seen a pattern evolve where public relations strategy is only discussed just prior to launch, if ever.... my post in the +Rackspace blog...

One of my personal highlights from #SXSW.... shot on location at the Texas School for the Deaf in Austin.... how Glide is helping to transform communication.... thank you +Chaim Haas  for facilitating...
Through the magic of Glide, I had a chance to witness how students at the Texas School for the Deaf are connecting and communicating through video messaging - and it doesn't suck up data

When +Jeff Pulver  puts on a conference, you know it's going to be something special.

Collaborating with Paul Jackson and Tracey Williams,  they are curating a community to gather and share stories about Gratitude and Trust....

One of the shifts I am seeing here at SXSW 2015 is the move to more wearables, medtech, health related product announcements..... my column from +SXSW  for +Geektime.com ....
Two of STEMP's co-founders gave me a demo of their innovative product, which provides immediate, continuous, and accurate body temperature measurement - it's great for those with kids

I love Glide... they've figured out a way to build a simple, lightning fast and easy to use way to communicate and add the personal touch of video.

Here's a video demo from a recent visit to the headquarters in Jerusalem with @Jonathan Caras .... special thanks to +Chaim Haas  for helping to make this happen.

And let's connect on Glide..
Go to the app store for Apple or Android and download Glide. Ok… I know I am......

I am thrilled to join the blogging team at Rackspace Hosting.

Currently, I'm in the U.S. for the month of March, and return to Israel in April and look forward to sharing the story of ‪#‎StartupNation‬...

As more Israeli startups join the Rackspace Startup Program, I'll also be doing profiles of cool companies doing great things on Rackspace infrastructure.

More to come... here's my first post....

Oh... the hat thing I am wearing... it was during Startup Pirates Tel Aviv....
