My research focueses on the thing that most people do not want to focus on - spam, and its earlier configuration - noise. It examines how unwanted forms of information became categorised as such, who were involved in the process, and how does it affect people's on-line behaviou and the architecture they operate in.
I published a book (in Hebrew) in 2013 - TranceMission: The Psytrance Culture in Israel 1989-1999 (Resling Publishing)
TransMission is the first written document on Israeli Psychedelic Trance culture and presents interviews with the pioneers of the culture, analysis of more than a 100 newspaper articles and 2 verdicts related to this culture. The book was made possible by a crowd-fnding project done in December 2012. Thanks to the 142 backers the project raised all the funds needed (5000£) to publish the book. A year later, in December 2013, the book - TranceMission - was published on Resling.
