Hey all -- the July calendar of events is up at

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.

Hilo area Game Developers: There's a meet up Thursday Night at The Hawaii Tech Exchange.

We want to organize a Hawaii Island chapter of the International Game Developer Association. Meet other game developers, share experiences and expertise. This is a pretty informal group and all levels of experience are welcome.

A motion was raised at Hawaii Techworks to rename it Hilo Nerd Club but nobody paid attention, so the motion died.

Will do.

Rod - We're actively looking for companies that would like to pitch.  The winning company will get flown to Maui to pitch at the big Mai-Tai/Maui Tech Night event to the investors there as well.

The Demo event is open to any Hawaii startup.  If you know anyone interested, have them write to and I'll take it from there.

@Don, that sounds like a nice event you have put together.  Are all the showcased companies set, or can others get in?

Aloha from Waimea. If you're developing a website or know someone who is, I put together a 52-page resource that explains all the 'must haves' a website needs for generating traffic, leads and sales:

Hey East Hawaii folks - the "Office Hours" 1-on-1 mentoring I've been doing with Nalukai Foundation has a new home.  I'm now holding them at the new Executive Networking Center in Hilo every Thursday from 11am - 1pm.

Topics range from web and mobile apps as businesses to funding and intellectual property/patents. Feel free to bring your own topics.
