Hawaiʻi's Technology Community

November 2010 Blog Posts (7) would like to feature Hawaii Artists who have had any art in a feature film or television series, like Hawaii Five-O perhaps?

Aloha All,

I just launched a new website and social network called "Art In Films".

I created it to showcase the art you see in films that enhance the scene or are just in the background.

The Foursquare Japan Lesson: Lightweight Localization

Even if you can't afford to localize right away, don't get in the way of your Japanese and Chinese users

TSA's "enhanced screening" - why it hurts Hawaii most

Hawaii is the most isolated population center on Earth. We're 2,400 miles from California, nearly 3,900 miles from Japan and 5,000 miles from China. We are the widest state in the US and the only one to grow coffee.

We are also one of only two states that you must fly to (I can't swim that far.. sorry guys).

We are dependent on tourism.. all of us - because even if we are funded by external dollars, any decline in local industry…

FaceBook Unfriends Google.. via email

I'm sure many of you have heard that Facebook now plans to offer an email service.

Clearly part of this is to undermine Gmail's presence (though I'm skeptical at how successful it will be.. Gmail is in my opinion the best large-scale web application currently in existence).
