Event Description

It's time once again to step away from the keyboard and get some sun! The TechHui community in all its diverse passions and skills is invited to participate in the second annual Hawaii Geek Meet.

For more information:


What is the Hawaii Geek Meet?

The Hawaii Geek Meet is a casual, friendly, open potluck gathering of geeks. And we mean "geek" in a most inclusive, positive way. Do you like technology? Do you have a specialty? Among your friends or coworkers, are you the guru, the go-to person for things that blink or have moving parts? Whether you're passionate about programming, photography, design, HAM radio, model rockets, painting, teaching... we want to meet you.

For specific and focused local groups, the Hawaii Geek Meet is a great excuse to see old friends and catch up on the latest tips and trends. But at the same time, the idea of Hawaii Geek Meet is to mix and mingle with other brilliant people, people you might never meet in your own circles, but people with whom we'd bet you'd get along smashingly.

The Hawaii Geek Meet is the brainchild of Burt Lum (of Bytemarks) and Aaron Dragushan (of Manoa Geeks), but truly belongs to all Hawaii geeks!

Who is invited?

Anyone who is remotely geeky about anything. Web developers, designers, programmers, photographers, videographers, podcasters, bloggers, even artists, teachers, thinkers... Are you knowledgeable and passionate about something? Are you naturally curious and interested in learning about something? Do you want to meet new people, share what you know, and learn a thing or two that you don't? Then you're invited. Bring your friends, your family, your kids... and if you've got geek toys and gadgets, bring them too!

The core of the Hawaii Geek Meet are several local groups that already get together to talkstory and share knowledge. Is your group interested in joining? Just add your name to the list!

When will it be held?

Sunday, April 19, 2009.

I'd love to attend again, but I've got about 10 more weeks of project to do, and only 3 weeks of class in which to get it done.

Hey, anyone coming to the Hawaii Geek Meet bringing a gadget or toy to show off (besides a telescope)? Reporter looking for a good visual.
