What Was Your Favorite Project?

Featured Techie: Haralds Jass, Founder and CEO of Superb Internet, Hawaii's Largest Web Hosting Company

Plantronics Voyager PRO: Day 2

Day 3 was great! I tried the PRO driving all around today going from Mililani to Ala Moana all the way to Kaneohe.. and it was GREAT!



When I was on the phone with my friend I was listening to Taylor Swift's version of 'Last Christmas' and it was cool because the volume was at 23 and he could still hear me!



Later this week I want to do an experiment! So I plan to use the PRO at the Ala Moana Shopping Center and call my Blackberry and record my conversation. :D



I… Continue

Wondering where my Wozniak is...

Since posting my iPhone developer talk on the Mathogen website I've been getting tons of requests to assist in iPhone development. Most interested in working with Sundance filmmaker to create game for movie tie in. Thinking about getting into consulting after talking to Bruce Kim at the first iPhone developer meetup. Still most interested in working on my own projects.



Reading game development blogs,… Continue

Finally...

It's been a rough semester (I had to pull 4 all nighters this week), but we have finally finished a prototype of our game for my school's Demo Day presentation!



The game is called Poggle, and it's for the iPhone/iPod Touch. It's a difficult game to describe. In some ways, it's like a real-time "Rock Paper Scissor" game. The best feature (and one of the more complicated) is that it can… Continue

Hawaii's Feed-In Tariff: More Information Needed, Pronto - Big Backers Like Hawaii But Need Details, Economics

In my time working on the U.S. Mainland (I'm splitting time there now between SF and HNL), I've been talking to a lot of top-tier venture capitalists, energy project financiers, and investment bankers involved in green energy. After finding out that I was from Hawaii, a number of them have asked me about the state's new Feed-In Tariff. They wanted detailed information so that they could see if clean energy projects in Hawaii might pencil out. Sadly, I had to tell them that the FIT at present… Continue
