My name is kfir Pravda. I am a marketing and business development consultant, and currently I am VP marketing of a young startup called ChasmLeap (yes, it refers to moore’s book, and yes, we also think it’s a great one…). I am surfing the web a lot, in order to find informaiton, market trends, technology developents and new ideas. As we all know, the hardest thing is to find reliable, comprehensive and up to date information sources. The blog revolution made things even more complicated. A lot of people are writing blogs these days, and finding the best ones is extremely complex and tidious work. However, there are many good sites out there,which are updated frequently, has great information, and offer a unique point of view. In addition, the blog era opened a direct channel betrween readers and prominent figures; the best example will be to read the private blog of Gerry Becker, a nobel prize winner, which you can directly communicate with one of the most influetntial figures in legal thinking today.
