And if you’d like to read more about Israel’s hi-tech success over the past two decades, I highly recommend the book Start Up Nation. Awe-inspiring stuff.
In other hi-tech and Israel related news, Apple plans to open its first ever development centre outside of its California headquarters in the near future. The development center will focus on semi-conductors. Well done Israel! See here for more about this.
Saw this on BBC today:
Israel, Finland and Sweden are seen as leading the way in “cyber-readiness”, according to a major new security report.
Always nice to see Israel at the top of a table.
On the other hand, Saudi hackers recently posted the information of thousands of Israeli credit card holders. You can read about the Israeli-Saudi cyber-war here.
Some good quotes from the video:
You go to the Middle East looking for oil, you don’t need to stop in Israel. But if you go looking for brains, for energy, for integrity, it’s the only stop you need to make in the Middle East.
Dr Daniel Zajfman, President of the Weizmann Institute of Science:
For many scientists what has been published is the truth. For Israeli scientists what has been published is something that may be still questioned and maybe pushed, further.
Meir Brand, Google Regional Director, Israel, Greece and South Africa:
For me Zionism is not only about prosperity of Jewish people in Israel, but also about Jewish people bringing more prosperity to the world.
We highly recommend reading the book Start Up Nation.
