GarageGeeks & Tel Aviv Technology Night Life


Shots below are from the GarageGeeks party last night in the Holon Industrial Zone and post tech bash festivities in Tel Aviv (we headed to Whiskey Go Go’s, a hot spot in the city for late night clubbing). Two other Bay Area technology exec spottings on-site.

GarargeGeeks is a physical and virtual space for innovative and creative people to introduce, network, expose, create, brainstorm, innovate and build. People that take part in the activities come from different disciplines such as electronics, software, mechanical, art, design, music, hacking and gaming.

They meet monthly, exchange creative ideas, listen to music and ‘hang out.’ The setting? A garage. Rock music plays. Video games light up a screen on the wall. An old fashioned grill is lit and people throw chicken and burgers on and eat in the midst of barbecue smoke. They have a DJ when someone doesn’t bring an instrument or two. There’s even an old old tractor outside.

In addition to the latest and greatest technology execs and techies in greater Tel Aviv, a handful of Americans who are in town from Kinnernet and the Marker conference showed up: Robert Goldberg, Steve Katz, Gary Bolles, Barak Berkowitz, Peter Hirshberg, Dan Dubno, Jeff Pulver, etc.

I met the CTO of British Telecom who was a hoot. The group was eclectic. In addition to meeting the founder of a competitor to Pandora, I also met the head of Israel’s national broadcasting and someone who specializes in technology for bad breath.
