Tachlis 2 Point Oh! is a conference that will be held in Jerusalem on Sept. 17th, 2008 from 6-10 pm. The focus will be on the dissemination of practical information related to the use of Web 2.0 tools in order to promote both for profit and not for profit ventures. Aharon Horwitz of Presentense will talk about grass roots community building, Ahuva Berger an independent consultant and author of the Sabra At Heart blog will discuss how one can best use social networking tools like twitter, facebook etc. and I’ll talk about how to make friends and influence people through the effective use of Shakshuka. Oh wait, that’s something else. I mean I am going to talk about blogs. Ricky Ben-David of the Jerusalem Post Blog Politburo will be keeping things in check by acting as the enforcer/moderator.

I have to give a hat tip to the Nefesh B’Nefesh Blog Conference and Amutah 2.0. Besides the fact that these events demonstrate the existence in Israel of a strong online community in both the private and public sector, the networking opportunities that they created acted as the driving force behind the creation of Tachlis.

The venue that will host the event is this gorgeous bar/lounge called Bulghourji just around the corner from Jaffa gate in the Armenian Quarter. Kosher food and drinks will be served and a good time will be had by all. Thanks to our sponsors particularly the Taglit Birthright Israel Alumni Association and Sun Microsystems. So yeah. If you’re going to be in Israel, go ahead and register. The cost is only 50 Shekels.

This is serious ok? You know how you know? Because we have a hot Web 2.0 logo. That’s how you know.
