Hi! I saw Honolulu mentioned on Zed's list of potential first chapters. I'll be one of the five people. I like coffee talk on waialae; it's roomy, free wifi, pretty central.
Sid Savara, Joe Philipson and I were talking about how to extract the serious techies from Manoa Geeks and doing something new. I think the F.U. has the spirit of what we're looking for. I'll ping them.

We were talking about how we are constantly sharing what we know, and we really need a group of people that is more, for lack of a better word, "experienced."
At Manoa Geeks, we have a broad group to socialize with - but that's a relatively recent change. In it's early inception, it was actually a lot more like this group - sharing knowledge, heavily tech oriented, and people who were doing things sharing what they were doing with others doing thing. For Manoa Geeks there's no going back- (and why would we? It's great. We meet & network with different people and learn things there we definitely wouldn't otherwise.
I miss the small comraderie of a group that all gets it though, and then Kyle (Mad Marv) mentioned this, and we realized this really could be that forum. I think the demos we could give would be more in depth and the QA could get far more technical, since at Manoa Geeks I don't want to alienate others who are there to be part of the tech scene, but at FHU meetings we could likely go more in depth since it's a different audience.
So I'm curious... Unfortunately I stand on the line when it comes to being "against business" (and have an MBA)...
