Hawaiʻi's Technology Community

Aloha e TechHuians,

Its been a very interesting month for tech in Hawaii. Three Hawaii companies, Avatar Reality,
Asia Pacific Films and
Sprout were covered on
TechCrunch and Peer News unveiled its much anticipated subscription-supported news service
Civil Beat. A handful of other local tech companies spun down as a result of an inability to secure new investment rounds.

Preparations for the upcoming TechHui Conference are in full swing with panel lineups nearly complete. The panelists, schedule, keynote and sponsorship details will be posted next week. We are making a number of changes based on feedback received last year. We hope you will be joining us next month for what is sure to be an exciting event.

Last month we enjoyed some great events including Ryan's Geek Meet and Ken's Geocaching Nerd Hike. Coming up in April we have PBN's Technology for Business, BAE Innovation Center's
Technology Communicated and the Social Media Club's
Financial Services & Social Media. Make sure to check the
calendar for great classes from UH's Pacific New Media college ranging from
game design to
social media marketing.

The TechHui blog and forums were abuzz over the past month with posts ranging from a report card on US social media giants in Japan and critiques of the DoE (
You Can't Have Innovation Without Education and
No Strategic Direction) to
thoughts on the iPad and Editor Alex Salkever's coverage of featured techie
Mark Dawson.

We are excited to see more TechHui activity on the neighbor islands. Maui Techies has passed 50 members and they are actively coordinating nerdy activities :-) We hope to see a similar uptick in the
Big Island and
Kauai groups.

Finally, we wanted to reiterate our dedication to protecting you from spam. If you receive unsolicited promotions or see inappropriate behavior on TechHui, please let us know, and we will take immediate action. Two problematic members were removed last month, and we have made our policies for accepting new members more stringent.

We hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!

A hui hou,
