Google IO will be June 27-29th at Moscone Center in San Francisco 

   https://developers.google.com/events/io/

They offer remote viewing for selected events via Google IO Extended

Last year Les V hosted one here (before leaving for his google job).. this year I signed up to host one here on Maui.  I think the GTUG in Honolulu is hosting one too.

Who is interested in attending?

Yeah, IFA is a world class organization with amazing facilities on Haleakala and Mauna Kea.  Notable facilities on Haleakala include Mees Solar Observatory and Pan-Starrs, not to mention the planned National Solar Observatory.  Did I forget to mention the 30 Meter observatory planned for Mauna Kea?

Even simple measurements, like atmospheric CO2 atop Mauna Kea over a long period of time, yields valuable scientific insights and are comprehensible by the general public.

Accessible science of interest to the general public would be a great boost to STEM education.  The IFA public outreach at the Wailuku Library and IFA offices in Pukalani are programs UHMC can leverage off of.

Thanks for the kind words Dan... I'm still motivated to get a great space program going on at UH. I'd really like to see it on Maui, given the telescopes on Haleakala that are part of the UH Institute for Astronomy (IfA) and the Maui High Performance Computing Center (MHPCC). UH also has a Distance Learning Center at the Mau Research and Tech Park next to MHPCC, where classes are already done via video conferencing. Moreover, there is a great and skilled group of people that could help bring this all together. What's missing is the leadership to make the vision become manifest.

Hi David,

I was thinking the Pukalani Country Club Restaurant.  The time of the meeting is after golf, and the kitchen is open.  They serve food and beverages.

Hi Ray. I'm also interested in the tour.

If UH Maui is serious about STEM education the two people you absolutely have to get involved are Garrett Lisi and Moriba Jah. Garrett is a current resident and Moriba is a former resident currently living in New Mexico. Moriba is a world class astrodynamicist with a talent for connecting with people and Garrett is working on reconciling quantum mechanics with Einstein's theory of gravitation. My two favorite intellectual dinner conversations of the past 5 years were with Garrett and Moriba.

Count me in please let me know the dates ahead so I can be sure to attend. Mahalo

Ray, I'd like to come check out the new science building, and should be around in April. Thanks for putting together the tour.

Reichart - hopefully you wont be stuck in Florida for an extended stay.

Ben/Hiro+Garrett/Crystal offered to host a MauiTechies dinner at that residence in Pukalani, which might be more comfortable than the community center.

In my experience, the Organizer needs to set a date/time and tell us. People will show or not, but polling for date/place is rarely successful.

Looking forward to the UHMC tour!
