By Micah HalpernI've Been Thinking:
Today is Israel's 69th birthday.
Part of the fun and celebrations this year was a riddle.
The riddle, which was was online with multiple layers, had 90,000 people attempt to solve it in the first 48 hours. Six people have so far solved the riddle.
The riddle was created by the Israel National Security Agency, known in Hebrew simply as Shin Bet.
It is a form of recruitment. Those who solve the riddle will be invited in for an interview.
It was a tool to help recruit candidates who can bolster and build the Shin Bet's high tech security and defense apparatus.
Last year Israel's Mossad provided a riddle and 20,000 people attempted to solve their problem.
Israel is using great games to attract gamers. Computer games are the foundation of the tech security world. Those who excel in gaming are good at real world games of defense.
