Just a reminder for Big Island folks, especially those on the east side of the island:

The Hawaii Island Game Developer Meetup is the last Thursday of each month. Next meeting is Thursday, January 29th at The Exchange in Hilo.

The Refresh: Web Design and Development Meetup is the second Tuesday of each month. Next meeting is Tuesday, February 10th also at The Exchange in Hilo.

We generally have 2-4 events each week at The Hawaii Tech Exchange, right across the street from the Lyman Museum in downtown Hilo. Check out our schedule of events and stop by.

Data Center in a refrigerator size box using 2% of the power in 2016. Just about the right time frame for Hawaii island to start needing Big-Data. HP "The Machine" processor functions more like the human brain.

capt jeff shattuck: sorry to play catchup- stem meaning sci, tech, eng, math?

Correct. You will also sometimes see STEAM, which is Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math.

Don: I'd like to see more Hawaii Island tech, science, and "STEM" business events listed on TechHui.

So would we. We don't have a bulk upload for the Events section, but if you can give us a RSS feed for the HITX events page we can easily display it in this group for coverage of all Big Island STEM events, and then you can post the featured events in the general Events area as you currently do (and we will continue to feature them.) There are some people on Oahu who occasionally hop over to the Big Island and Maui for interesting tech events. Mika and I have been known to do that :-)

Rod, I'm hoping we'll get enough interest to make the Robotics meetup a regular thing.

I'd like to see more Hawaii Island tech, science, and "STEM" business events listed on TechHui. I'll ask Daniel Leuck if he has some type of import to load batches of events.  Right now, I'm just listing "featured" events and highlights here.

Thanks for the cross listing of the West Hawaii Tech pau hana, Don.  I'd like to attend the robotics meetup, but unfortunately will be off island until the next day.

We've got a lot of tech related events going on in Hilo at The Exchange this month: Startup Mentoring, a Writer's Group, a Web Development Meetup and our regular Game Developer's Meetup.  Hope to see you all at one of the events.
