A web pioneer and inventor
I happened to be a Unix sys admin in 1993 when I found a new software release: Xmosaic! I love to experiment new things so installed it in our network, next thing that happened was that I built my first website, it was one of the first 1,000 websites in human history, at a time that only 300 web developers existed on planet Earth! The next thing that I did was a HTML course to our staff, and soon later I opened my first web company. In 1996 (before Google) I developed a multi-language search engine and in 1999 I sold it for good money. Since then I’m leading international scale projects, startups and entrepreneurs while inventing new things.
Eran is a biblical name – meaning “Awake”. “Ben-Shahar” is a surname from Isaiah’s prophecy, referring to Hillel, an angel that inspired spiritual light upon human beings. In modern Hebrew “Ben-Shahar” is used for “dawn”. Like native Indians and other indigenous people, the Hebrew names would usually relate to a subject (an animal for instance) or to a spiritual state of mind, so the meaning of “Eran Ben-Shahar” is: “Aware person, son of dawn”. I’m a theoretical physicist, a humanist, an inventor and a traveler. Welcome to my blog.
