Who am I?

This is a personal, not-for-profit project of mine. I started working with computers in the ’80s (DEC PDP11) and started programming websites in 1996. In 2002 I began operating a website (also not-for-profit) called Irrelevant where I comment on internet rumors.

I started this project because I realized that people who were the computer pioneers are starting to leave this world and the materials they kept might be lost forever.

The purpose of this website is to collect and publish materials from the digital history of Israel – computing, communications, and the internet.

I collect and publish books, magazines, software, and what is known as “grey literature” – materials and research produced by organizations outside of the traditional commercial or academic publishing and distribution channels. Common grey literature publication types include reports (annual, research, technical, project, etc.), working papers, government documents, white papers, and evaluations.

All the materials that I publish are uploaded to the Internet Archive and this site is the index to those materials.
