The major U.S. technology magazine expresses its esteem for the Israeli start-up scene.

One of the article's text-boxes deals with where Tel-Aviv's start-up companies are located.

Commenting on Gift Project's selection, he said "I believe we were chosen because of what they picked up from the scene and their belief that social commerce is likely to explode in the future. What we are seeing now is only the beginning."
