Karl Fooks, new Director of HSDC, gave an excellent overview of promising options for promoting venture capital investment in technology companies in Hawaii at the HVCA luncheon talk yesterday. Here are some of the main points I noted down from Mr. Fooks presentation:
1. Angel investment tax credits: perhaps a continuation of Act 221; 16 other states have similar tax credits, averaging about 50% of invested amount, and capping total tax credits that can be taken.
2. State… Continue

I'm currently working on a GWT project for a large international company, so I've been spending some time before I really get too far into it to learn how to make this less painful to translate into multiple languages. I've found that GWT makes this a pretty simple task as long as you start with a little planning.
Here I'm going to demonstrate the simplest possible example of localization, but I hope that it will be clear enough to explain how simple this is to accomplish and to… Continue

5 Star Reviews
Getting a 5-star review is easy. Just do your job in such a way that your customers can't wait to tell the world how wonderful you are, and then ask them to review your service on one of the Internet review sites. Sounds easy enough doesn't it? ... but there's more.
Based on my Local Search Marketing research, the quantity and quality of your reviews do seem to make a difference. It is more common to see a business listing with more reviews ranked… Continue

I normally don't comment on this sort of thing, but I received numerous links to Virginia Heffernan's vacuous NYT article titled Facebook Exodus.
It must have been a very slow news day. By Virginia's own admission at the top of paragraph two, Facebook is growing at a furious rate. ComScore puts last month's unique visitors at 87.7 million and monthly growth at over 20%. To what exodus is she… Continue
