I have been interviewed in Ha'aretz about Project Ben-Yehuda. It even made it to the English edition of Ha'aretz. Neat!

Current Mood: pleased
Current Music: Verdi -- Nabucco (Muti)

An insipid article about an awesome guy. I'll brag about you.

Don't be so harsh; it's a fair article, as these things go. I wish it would have been more about the project and less about me, because I'm not the issue, but apparently the newsfolk thought otherwise.

And thanks. :)

I'm always harsh on hated journalists. There's nothing specifically wrong with an article focusing on you, but in this case it didn't seem to have any point, and it could have. There are good reasons it took someone like you to make Ben Yehuda; very few other people would have done it or could have done it. The dumb reporter wrote it off to a background in computer science.

Yeah, too bad about the moose. They picked a rather bland picture, I think.

And thanks!

Heh, yeah, I knew you'd be moosed. I kept it a secret especially to surprise you!

Hey, not bad! Of course, I must tell myself that I will someday read the other version of the article... but neat, indeed.

Nonsense! When you will have picked up enough Hebrew, I shall keep you in wondrous reading material without resorting to silly articles. Trust me on that one.

Oh, certainly! But, you know, some patience may be required; fitting in the classes with everything else (like, say, Chinese Through Guilt 1A) may be a bit difficult, and I'm terrible on my own.

Er, תודה רבה ? This may make my computer explode, or your head, or both, and reminds me that letter recognition is a really nice thing to have.

That's awesome! Funny, reading your LJ posts about this, considering that it was Project Ben-Yehuda that made me aware of your existence in the first place!

הי, אתה צריך עיצוב גרפי באמת?

Re: כל הכבוד!

תודה רבה. כן, אנחנו צריכים עיצוב גרפי, אבל עוד מוקדם מדי. אין טעם לעצב לפני שיהיה שלד של התוכנה מאחורי האתר, משום שהגרפיקה תצטרך להשתלב איתה; כשהתוכנה תופעל, כל התוכן יגיע ממסד נתונים ויתחולל בזמן אמת וכו'.

אם תרצה לעזור, אשמח לפנות אליך כשדברים יזוזו עם התוכנה. (תוך חודשיים בערך, אני מקווה.)

I didn't realize you did that. Good for you (especially the keeping the site free of advertisements bit). I myself only wish I spoke Hebrew; perhaps someday...

I always wonder what makes some newspapers publish articles about websites, yet post no hyperlinks or even mention the url.

And congratulations, of course.
