"Huh. We had Founders Institute events here in 2013-2014, I think Russell Cheng of DevLeague was coordinating. Guess the chapter folded. I'm thinking we could turn to freshly minted founders from the local accelerator programs -- at least those…"
There's a great organization called the Founder Institute. It's online at https://fi.co/. Its objective is helping startups get started, even if you're only at the idea stage. Have a look at their website via the link, below. I think this would be a great resource for those of us looking to get our startup started up. But there's NO CHAPTER here in Hawaii. Here's what the website says about getting one started: "The Founder Institute looks for the highest quality…See More
I just came across this quote... "[Silicone] Valley has always had huge companies, not just scrappy startups. They bring in all the engineers and then they leave. That's where the startups come from". Can Hawaii really have a startup environment without the huge companies that produce the experienced engineers?See More

If anyone in here is old enough to remember Interface Age magazine (late 70s) you may recall a monthly column titled "The Inventor's Sketchpad". Well, I wrote that column. I also wrote a book, "The Complete Starship: A Simulation Project" way back then, describing how a simulation could be constructed using personal computers.

Roger, I just noticed your profile. I had an article published in Interface Age. It was for a game on Altair/Imsai type machines with a video card (Lee Felsenstein's in my case). The game was Snake and you used the front panel switches to direct the snake. They published the hex code for it and I know at least one person entered in all that hex because he wrote a letter pointing out a bug. I knew about the bug but had left it in as a kind of cheat, it let the snake out of one corner. Oh heck, it might even have been Octal they listed. So, yes, I remember Interface age!
