Some lessons from NYC?

I left Hawaii a couple of years ago for NYC.Building a stronger policy framework to support the development of the tech community is a concern in both places.Towards that end, I thought I'd share details regarding a new initiative that's just getting off the ground here in New York to identify the most critical policy issues affecting tech businesses and the tech community:…See More

No Ultimate, sigh. Truth be told, I'm not even very good at throwing an Aerobie, I just really like it :)

When I was about to graduate from college, I was sitting in my dorm room feeling totally clueless about what comes next when I saw my Aerobie propped against the wall. So I looked them up and emailed them begging for a job... and there I was for my first year out of college!

You an Aerobie fan?

Hi Gabe,

Hi Gabe,
Unfortunately, I'm no pro at GUI (just a novice programmer) and the CG imaging I've done aren't professional. Thanks for the invite though, I will keep it in mind :)

Hey Gabe, how's life in NY? ... I feel like I haven't been on TechHui in forever.

We used french.yabla to learn a bit of the language before going to Madagascar. Its a great app - easily the best language learning site I've seen. I also discovered a great new artist while watching the videos.

Hey Gabe and Truman,

Sorry to jump into the conversation but I couldn't help notice that you guys were talking about a Spanish website! lomastv.com looks really cool and it is a great way to practice your Spanish AND create awareness about the different accents that we have (I am a native Spanish speaker).

Thank you for the great find!

Cheers,

Damian

Hey Gabe, I just watched the demo video on lomastv.com. That girl IS spunky! I can see why people like her a lot and ask to see more videos by her. I like her, too.

I'm thinking to cancel the Jelly this week due to a lack of interest. Let me know if you want to meet up for lunch instead.
