Fifteen years ago they graduated Technion CS and on April 4th they returned for
the CS 1996-1998 Alumni Reunion. The alumni reunited on a gala event held in the
new CS Taub Building.
This alumni reunion was the 4th in the CS history and it hosted 250 graduates,
faculty and Technion seniors. A festive dinner was served accompanied by musical
entertainment by a Jazz trio.
Tamir Levi, CS Ph.D. graduate from 1998 - and a CS lecturer at present - gave an
exhilarant lecture on the changes he and his fellow-alumni have gone through since graduation:
"Where were we? 1996 - young students; 2001 - young unemployed; 2012 - young
oldsters". Tamir was followed by Dr. Yossi Vardi, one of Israel's first
high-tech entrepreneurs, who told the guests about the "secret gravy of Israel
high-tech" and hilariously described his own unbelievable adventures in the
high-tech industry ("Hollywood did a movie on me, but due to modesty they
called it "Forrest Gump").
