I mostly do Erlang and CoffeeScript these days and am the author of "Building Web Applications in Erlang" and "Programming HTML5 Applications" Both of which were published by O'Reilly.

I am also very interested in the question, How do I become a great developer and spend a fair bit of time thinking about it.

I am also a compulsive writer. I love writing as it forces me to really think about what is important and how to make ideas seem more concreate

comment Simple Experiment to Demonstrate Special Relativity
Plus I could take the cloud chamber from my house at 800M above sea level down to the Dead Sea well bellow sea level then up to the Golan heights to see if we can see differences in Muon rates

I followed the link to your home page when I saw an Israeli name. I live in Ariel BTW. The Trip to Mizpe Ramon is SO worth it

You are in Be'er Sheva right? Dive south 30km and you should have an amazing sky

For what its worth my 4 1/2 year old "made" me take the telescope out last night to look at Jupiter. And my almost 3 year old can point out the moon in the sky often faster than I can.

comment Why doesn't helium start to fuse while there is still hydrogen fuel?
the core compresses and gets hotter, in doing so it starts to put out a lot of extra energy, that has to go somewhere so it goes into making the envelope larger. Richard Pogge explains this in some detail in his Astronomy 162 class which you can download from his website as a podcast astronomy.ohio-state.edu/~pogge/Ast162
