"Because in Cyberspace, no one can hear you scream."
Tuesday, October 25, 2005
(Ynet News) Gates, who is visiting the country for the first time, met with research and development heads of a number of Israeli high-tech companies, including Checkpoint, Nice, Amdocs and Verint.
Later he spoke with some 400 hundred employees of Microsoft Israel, including MSN Israel employees and those working at the companyÂs research and development center in Haifa.
Although not as glamerous as Madonna's future visit to Israel, (Editor's note: loathing the pictures) Gates arrival will help combat the fear mongers who see the Holy Land as nothing but a place riddled by bullets, blood and beliefs. Bill Gates is visiting not only to encourage employees throughout Israel but also students as well.
(Ynet News) During his visit Gates is also scheduled to meet with teens excelling in technological studies. Education Minister Limor Livnat is also expected to take part in the event, which is titled, "IsraelÂs students advise Bill Gates."
The Microsoft chairman is also set to take part in a conference of leading Israeli information technology managers and in additional conferences attended by representatives of MicrosoftÂs IsraelÂs business partners.
Bill Gates seems to be courting the Israeli market, although it is doubtful that he will make the same efforts towards Palestine. After all, who would want to visit a region that might consider inviting terrorist organizations as part of a democratic government?
