The center played a critical role in the formation and scaling of both Ikayzo and Contix. In…

I've tried to stay out of this fray, but having received a number of inquiries, and having seen some friends affected by the collateral damage, I'm going to briefly comment on the situation.

I want mbloom to succeed. They have substantial capital to deploy in Hawaii, and I want that capital to empower local entreprenuers.

I believe the people at HSDC are true believers and want to do right by our community. They may have made mistakes, but I've spent time with them, and I've…

Efficient Knowledge Transfer in Social Graphs: Meet the Flying Gurnard

Last week while strolling down the Ala Wai with my 2yo son we stopped to look at the crabs that collect around the stairs that decend into the canal. I was glancing down at my iPhone when my son suddenly yelled "BIRD FISH!" and started pointing. I looked over and saw this:

In the thousands of hours I've spent walking up…

Two of the links on the right ->> on the Hawaii Tech Sites section seems to be gone.

The Wave Hawaii has been gone for at least three months now, they never renewed their site. As for the Hawaii Council, I have no clue why I can't access it.

You may want to clean it up and take them out.
