On Thurs Oct 6, the King Kekaulike HS Robotics Club is having a fundraiser - showing the new documentary "Bots High". The film follows 3 groups of high school students as the develop and compete BattleBots. The KKHS Robotics Club competes in VEX and FIRST competitions. This year, as one of the mentors, I have started teaching arduino based robotics to those who are not involved in the competitions.
Our showing will be outdoors (weather permitting) utilizing Gabe Mott's ColorBox - a projection cube with interactive (kinect) features. Gabe will be demonstrating the box before and after the film.

Hi all! The Maui Research and Technology Center (MRTC) in Kihei has co-working space available. As David mentioned Pam Alesna is the Assistant Property Manager at the facility and can be contacted for a tour. The program we have at MRTC is called the Virtual Incubation Program (VIP). For $100/month clients will be given a mailing address and access to the conference room at MRTC for up to 20 hours per month. As additional services, access to the co-working space will be made available for a one time set-up fee of $50. A dedicated desk option can also be made available in the co-working space for an added monthly fee. This program is primarily for tech-startup companies. More information on the VIP can be found on our website at: http://www.htdc.org/programsservices/incubation_virtual.html, or you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, (808) 539-3616.
Hi Roxanne, thanks for the response.
I'll be there starting the 2nd, working all that week from wherever I end up staying, happy to meet/hang out with any other techies at any point.
If anyone has Devin's contact info, please msg me with it.
I secured the Pukalani Country Club Restaurant for a meeting when convenient.
Thanks for organizing last night's gathering Jerry! I enjoyed learning about Reichert's tv show that is in production, and seeing Ben and Doug Levin with families taking a break from their project. It was good to catch up with Don, although I forgot to ask about his novel. Cheyne reminded me that this gathering is very much like one we had ten years ago and was written about in Fast Company (http://www.fastcompany.com/magazine/62/dispatches.html).
I shared a bit about the local stock exchange idea which I encourage all to check out at http://HILocalExchange.org. It could be an engine that would help the overall entrepreneurship eco-system, and be a solution to a problem that this group's originator, Dan Leuck pointed out in his excellent interview with Civil Beat (http://tinyurl.com/3tluvyw). Please check it out, complete the survey, and if so moved, make a contribution at http://Greenfunder.com.
The DCCA study group has its second meeting on September 9th and I am planning to webcast it.
Looking forward to the demo of the combination of Gabriel Mott's color box with Ben's touch screen DJ system. Keep us posted as to when and where.
I believe that Doug Levin offered to host a future meeting at his conference room at the Levin & Hu building behind Home Depot - a more central and quiet location, with a compelling view of Haleakela with the Puunene sugar mill in the foreground.
