Hi, I'm a member of the Syndu founders' team. I like cats, web, reading science fiction novels and making them come true.

I'm helping people achieve their dreams as entrepreneurs, and that's why I'm building the Syndu Machines.

    I'm working on the finishing touches of the latest Syndu release. Something that bothered me immensely was the medium quality of the social buttons we used.

    Icons are quite something. To squeeze visual information into a 20*20 pixels area, while retaining a sharp and clear visual is an artform.

    Fixing the icons is a serious task - it takes hours to get every pixel in place, and buying a 20*20 iconset is not so easy to find. These limitations make it an excellent task for outsourcing.

    I logged on to ELance, created a task and within an hour I had 10 bids, ranging from 20$ to 200$. One of the offers was from a Palestinian guy, which immediately made all the other offers irrelevant.

    The web ignores borders. I had the opportunity to reach out and collaborate simply with someone who's considered my enemy by many of my countrymen.

    I hired this designer, and within 3 hours the job was complete. It was nothing short than amazing. When I received the graphics and integrated them into Syndu, I sent him a thank you email with a link to the site where he can see his work, live.

    This experience makes me hopeful about how technology can help us connect and collaborate beyond borders, nationalities and religion.
