Sharing meaningful experiences, impactful ideas and career + event opportunities in the NY/TLV tech ecosystems

Welcome to YKC. Back in the States; Israel was a blast and an experience more than a location but I still don’t get how people function in the Tel Aviv summer… 😥
Say what you will about BDS (and whether or not it’s actually a major threat) but the Chainsmokers (along with Radiohead Thom Yorke’s recent statement) probably put that toxic and hateful movement to rest when they killed it this past Thursday at their EPIC performance in Israel 🤘🎧😵

“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”
-Oscar Wilde
Ghost in the Shell:  Despite Rotten Tomatoes’ unfavorable review of this movie, all I could think about while watching the adaptation of this popular Japanese anime comic book novel is how close we really are to some of the concepts the film addresses (and their current) iterations. AR/VR, robotics, society’s connection (and reliance) on the digital network, cybernetics and AI (while not there yet, see Harari’s Homo Deus for how close a subset of society is to “upgrading”) and the immortality of the soul transcending the body (literally every major religion). 
-Deals & Divas invite you to join them on August 8th at STEP the movie; the 7pm showing of the new documentary will take place on August 8th at the AMC Empire Theater at 234 West 42nd Street. STEP is the true-life story of a girls’ high-school step team against the background of the heart of Baltimore. These young women learn to laugh, love and thrive – on and off the stage – even when the world seems to work against them. Empowered by their teachers, teammates, counselors, coaches, and families, they chase their ultimate dreams: to win a step championship and to be accepted into college. Purchase your tickets here.
-Trybal Gatherings is hosting an adult summer camp in the Berkshires August 24th-27th.

-I met with the founder of this Israeli startup recently and was impressed by what they’re working to accomplish. ActionBar is an automatic self-serve customer support solution which reduces support spend in SaaS companies by keeping repetitive questions from ever reaching human agents. Instead, ActionBar automatically carries out tasks for users on the platform, and instantly answers questions using users’ own words.
