Aloha e TechHuians. We just returned from taking neighbor island panelists to the airport. We are exhausted, but I wanted to make sure to thank the Lt. Governor, keynotes, moderators, panelists, sponsors, AV folks, volunteers and everyone who attended for contributing. The keynote speakers did a fantastic job. Kaz
's Blue Mars is a thing of beauty. Moriba
made us put on our thinking caps, and Jeff was, as always, informative and entertaining. Many thanks to moderators Darren Kimura, Jay Fidell
, Burt Lum
and Rob Kay
. There were so many interesting presentations from the 34 panelists I scarcely know where to start. You guys really exceeded expectations!
A special thanks to my friend Susan Horowitz
from Pacific New Media
and my lovely (and patient) wife
for their tireless work over the past few months on the planning, promotion and implementation of this conference. Without them, it wouldn't have happened. Jay
- thank you so much for all your hard work behind the camera. Nicole, I'm so sorry you had to haul the camera between the rooms by yourself. Next time we will set up in all four tracks simultaneously.
We greatly appreciate all the Twitter love shown to the conference by @neenz
. Mahalo to KHNL8
for providing great coverage of the conference.
We had a lot of help promoting the conference. We would like to thank Jay Fidell
, Bill Spencer
, Susan Horowitz
, Burt Lum
, Ryan Ozawa
and Bernard Uy
for tapping their networks.
Finally, I'd like to thank our generous sponsors, IBM
, Pacific New Media
, Pacific LightNet
and Aloha Island Lei
We are very interested in feedback about the conference so we can improve it next year. If you have suggestions, please post them here.
