Hi all, I joined this community in hopes that I can meet others who enjoy the same passions that I do in regards to software and internet technologies. I can't tell if I am in the right group, so let me know if I got it wrong. I am a remote worker in South Kohala with a focus on web development technologies.

Bill, perhaps a number of us could get together and start building PC's on the BI. There seem to be a lot of tech shops, at least three-four that deal with repairs, but none that exclusively build machines and sell them.

My coworkers are all computer science professors. There are a good handful of them. The observatories employ a gaggle of Java, C, .NET, etc. coders, as well as web designers. There are a surprising number of Net cafes in both Hilo and a couple in Kona. Some of them custom build computers for people, amazingly enough.

There are more then two techs, but depends on how many actually use TechHui. My best guess is most are either in Hilo U, running small businesses on their own (hand up), or Kona-side running Net cafes for the tourists there.

hi, I'm here. What's up 808blooger?

Well, if you have a contract with anyone in the world you can typically fulfill it from Big Island :)

How about as an indie on-site repair guy? Are there any businesses out there with computer networks?

Just about nothing Hilo-side, unless you really want to work in a store with the customers, at least that I've seen.

Just wondering - what kind of IT work is available on the big island? I live on Oahu so I'm familiar with this market and I've heard that there's not much opportunity out there.
