Leaving IBM, Moving on to LinkedIn

I just announced my departure from IBM. IBM Research was a great place to work in.
If we'll not include the military (four years), then IBM was all of my career until now. I started at Haifa Research Labs when I still was a student at the Techion, and after few years moved on with my family to the silicon valley and started to work in Almaden Research Center.

I did worked on Healthcare projects in the last two years in Haifa, but things really took off in Almaden when we got into the Eclipse open Healthcare Framework project. I wrote some code, did lots of talks and blogs, and saw the great community comes into life.

I do hope to still be involved in this domain, in the next few months I'll have a better idea of how I can still contribute to the OHF community and be involved.

Anyway, now its the brave new world of Social Networks which really fascinates me. LinkedIn is a great company with fantastic people and technology. I'm excited to see what's next, but as always - looks like I'm going to have some fun :-)

Hey Eishay, I just was looking some news from Discory Channel and I saw a link regarding avian flu thru IBM's eyes... I opened the link and I saw a kind of speech where James Kaufman was talking then I went to BluePages (yes... I work for IBM) and I saw your picture under his hierarchy... I was in shock because it seems you are very young... I searched your name in Google and found your blogs!!! Hey boy, now I am seeing you leave IBM... anyway.
