I am looking for Start-Ups to join the new program by the Chief Scientific Office “מסלול סיוע לקידום חברות מתחילות”. This new program provides funding also to Product Marketing activities. The program will fund 50% of product development cost (including 20% O/H) for 2 years up to 10 Millions IS. It is a one phase application and approval covering the 2 years. After getting approved the entrepreneurs will have 6 months to get the investment for the additional required funds required for the project. The New Program assumes that a positive evaluation and an approval by the CSO will support Start-Ups in getting additional investment. Call me [masked]

have a look at: http://bitcoincharts.com/
there is a pie chart under the title: "Hashrate Distribution"
I see that about 51% goes to "unknown", and there are a few other, smaller, "unknowns".
Is that a specific "unknown", meaning that a certain group/person is producing more than 50% of the bitcoins?

I'm sure everyone that came to this meeting was a "sold audience" in the sense that we believe e-currency should work.
I'm also pretty sure that people, like myself, have ideas about how to "spread the word" and make a profit on the way (aka "start-up").
That being said, I think many good connections can spring from these meetings, so if anyone has an idea and/or is looking for a partner, this can be the forum to post on the subject.
Personally, I have a few ideas but I don't have an intention of leaving my workplace, so time is a constraint for me. Even-so, I'd be glad to hear about ideas, be a part of an initiative and get more involved, so if anybody can offer me that I'll be glad to take it :)

Comments about the meetup:
My **personal** opinion: I think the Q&A part was the best part, followed, in greatness, by the legal & regulation point of view (after all, our goal is to create a community of law abiding citizens, no?).
Personally, I'd like to have more time for Q&A 'cause people's questions were very relevant and interesting (even when they hogged the mic ;) ).

I am sure these questions were asked before, so if you have a relevant link that'll do:
1. There will be 21 million coins, will the coin's value be stable enough so it will be possible to set a price to a product without needing to update it every day/week/month, and for the users to grasp the coin's value without the constant need to compare it to other currencies (as we do with the Shekel)? In other words, how will deflation be stopped (or slowed to a reasonable state)?
2. Is there a good, simple, explanation to what promises the mining to stop at 21 million? And the answer "it's the algorithm" doesn't count ;)
3. I'm taking the train from Rehevot if someone wants a travel buddy :)

If there is lets say "traffic jam" in the information flow and all the System of bitcoin net crush - will there be a restart to it with all the money lost? As its just starting from a new point again? Or is there an automatic way that saves all the memory and calculation that already been made
An example was the bug few days ago... Did it have major effect or not? On all the users information gathered to that point

It would be nice if we get some more technical lectures because most of us already know the basics. Especially if you guys can get into describing the bug that was found few hours ago and its impact. BitCoin like any other currency is all about trust. How can we trust BitCoin when the software that's dealing with it is not bug free!!
