Here are some of the things you can find here:
<h3 id="humour"><a href="humour/">Humour</a></h3>
I enjoy writing <a href="$(ROOT)/humour/stories">large-scope humorous
stories</a> (novellas). My first and favourite one was
<a href="$(ROOT)/humour/TheEnemy/">"The Enemy"</a>, which is a political
satire, inspired by mid-eastern politics, but with a more universal
message. I also wrote <a href="$(ROOT)/humour/TOWTF/">"The One with the
Fountainhead"</a>, which is my funniest piece yet, and
<a href="$(ROOT)/humour/human-hacking/">"The Human
Hacking Field Guide"</a>, which is a not-so-realistic realism about
open-source enthuisastic teenagers, but with many jokes.
I have some other unfinished stories.
I have also written many <a href="humour/bits/">shorter bits</a> and
<a href="humour/fortunes/">a large collection of fortune cookies</a> by
myself and others.
<h3 id="philosophy"><a href="philosophy/">Articles and Essays</a></h3>
I am <a href="philosophy/politics/define-zionism/">a Jew and an Israeli</a>
by nationality, an atheist by faith, and <a
Objectivist</a> by ideology. (Objectivism
not imply selfishness</a>, by the way, but rather "Rational Self-Growth".)
My expertise as a software developer (in many fields), and my interest
in philosophy, history, software management, and other fields also provide
fodder for my essays and articles.
<h3 id="open-source"><a href="open-source/">Open Source Software</a></h3>
Links to software I wrote, and some resources with links to other software.
Knock yourself out!
<h3 id="presentations"><a href="lecture/">Presentations</a></h3>
I prepared several technical presentations. Especially recommended is the
<a href="lecture/Perl/Newbies/">"Perl for Newbies" series</a>
introducing <a href="http://perl-begin.org/">the Perl programming
language</a> to absolute beginners.
<h3 id="links"><a href="links.html">Links</a></h3>
There are many links on the site, but I also concentrated many of them in
one place. Who doesn't like links?
I hope you enjoy my web-site. If you do, please
<a href="$(ROOT)/meta/how-to-help/">link here</a> or recommend
it to your friends.
