    Hey !
    I just launched my next Kickstarter Bolt Riley:

    It’s the game i’ve been working on since 2011.It’s a 2D point and click adventure game that tells the story of the greatest Reggae musician that ever lived and I’ve worked on it with legendary game designers Corey and Lori Cole who made Quest for Glory.

    Any help spreading the word would be AWESOME. We created a special page to make it easy. (using the Soma hack i learned about in this meetup from Ben Lang!)

    Help us break Pressy's record who broke my previous record!
    Thanks! Oded

    This was one of the best meetups I've ever attended. The networking time was appropriate and effective, and the talk was riveting. Slava is a tremendous visionary and is able to communicate complex and deep concepts in a way that speaks to every level of understanding.

    Hi Helen , I think it was you who did the first follow-up questioning after Rubin's presentation. At any rate, this was very well done. I learned some important things here. Thanks

    TNX Sean, TNX Baruch.
    I am aware of the great work that is being done by ISCA - but as things advanced in Israel, I am afraid it will take quit long time. We are in a stage of initiating our own capital raise (Philanthropy and Donation), not as a service but for our own need!. Due to the unique field of activity – low price system for treating cancer tumors - we think it is doable (world-wide).
    We are hesitating from falling into situations in which we won’t obey the law in ceryain countries.
    Is there a way to have a short meeting during Slava Rubin of Indiegogo visit? Maybe we’ll be convinced to go via one of the existing available mechanisms (Indiegogo, HelthiosXchange, etc..).
