Thanks for the steer toward TechHui. I didn't know about it. Looks like a gold mine of talent and fun people. I'll be posting regularly from San Fran during FileMaker Devcon in August, for the many FileMaker developers here, ha ha!

Thanks for your feedback Dan. I believe Derek shared your stream concern with me. Mahalo. Weʻll need to figure out if the state has control over that or the city.

Derek has shared with me a little bit about your back ground. Iʻm wondering what thoughts you might have as to how the city government could better utilize technology to become more efficient and more easily accessible. Iʻm looking for ways to increase cost savings (by changing the way we work) so that that we can reduce the need to increase taxes and fees.

Thanks, Dan!

I really liked your file sharing app. Thanks again for inviting me to the GUI meetup, and I hope to come to the next one.

Hi Dan--haven't seen you since we literally nearly bumped into each other in the MIC halls the other day :) I'm embarrassed to say I didn't check my attendance log on this site for the 6/29 Fed Grants Training until now. Thanks for signing up! Please email me at sbir@htdc.org if you need more info on the workshop content, the site or parking. Or you can attend virtually by video stream. (see my update to Conference Event) Thanks!

Hey there, Dan...

The presentation in Kyoto went OK, I suppose... Everyone else's presentations were on hardcore R&D projects, very dry. Me? My presentation was a canned slide presentation that was written by a marketing guy, so perhaps I was a bit out of place. I shoulda known something was up when the session chair introduced me as "DR. Brooke Fujita??"

And then I opened with a joke about imagining everyone in the audience wearing nothing but their underwear, and maybe those surgical masks that people in Japan are wearing to combat the spread of H1N1.

...

Man, you coulda heard a pin drop. Tough audience!

Ah, I am here in Kyoto to give a presentation on the View Search Hokkaido technology project that I worked on last year. It is being featured at the IEEE's ISCE2009 Conference, in a special session for next-generation image-retrieval.

The original presenters chickened out due to the H1N1 flu outbreak, or maybe they were none too comfortable with their English speaking skills have other engagements, so lucky for them that I was on the project right from the start, eh?

Hello Daniel,

Thanks, we will try to set this up. Should we create a new group, or just participate in an existing one?

I have read about half of Flexible Rails, as I just got it recently. I also just got Flex On Rails (Hillerson, Wanja) and have gone through parts of the first two chapters. I think both books are quite valuable resources. Would you have any recommendations on good Ruby or Rails books? I am going to buy a few books to help my students out, so I would appreciate it if you know of any that you would recommend.

Thanks,

Vern

Hi Daniel,

Just wanted to let you know that we did finally get our NSF proposal in on May 12th. If that proposal is accepted, we should be able to start up that IT Academy program at HCC.

On a different note, I am supervising a student project this summer that involves Flex and Rails. We are developing an application that will allow our faculty and staff to develop simple Flash tutorials (without knowing Adobe Flex). Earlier this year, I developed an application using PHP that would allow the user to fill in a series of textareas and select lists to gather information for a simple tutorial (explanatory paragraphs and nongraded multiple choice questions). The tutorial consists of a Flash file that uses a ViewStack to navigate between the pages. (I have some simple examples on one of my webpages: http://honolulu.hawaii.edu/~vern/tutorials.html). After demoing the PHP application, I was able to get a small grant to fund this student project. Instead of PHP, we are going to use a Flex frontend, and store the tutorial information using a Rails (MySQL or PostgreSQL) backend.

We have just started. My students have varying levels of experience. So, I have just gone into some simple Rails examples, and am just starting going into Ruby (enough so they can understand more about how Rails can be modified). After that, I am going to teach the students how to create a Flex front end for a simple Rails-driven database.

I noticed that there are several groups on TechHui that could be related to our project (Flex, Rails Hackers, Ruby Developers). I was thinking of having my students start making some posts here (to show what we are learning and/or to get some feedback). What do you think of that idea?

Vern

Hi Dan, just wanted to say that your TechHui bash at Thai Sweet Basil was a great success! Thanks so much for organizing; I had fun and got to meet a lot of new and interesting folks. Aloha.

Lol! Well this was one of those photos where I liked how I look, but Derek did not approve of. So the solution was to mosaic him out so I can use it :D

I wanted to thank you for hosting last night's event. Both Noe and I enjoyed ourselves and were able to meet other people in the various sectors of the tech industry. :)

It was great to see you as well. I'm hoping that I can get my wife to come out with me on the 3rd. Looking forward to it!

Hey Dan,

I meant to ask you at Manoa Geeks last night but I forgot -- Did you ever take a look at SmartGWT? And if so, what did you think of it?

Ok, one down (David Fisher) 4 to go.

Aloha Dan!

It was nice meeting you and Mika on Saturday and Truman's. Thanks for friending me and teaching us a few things about lemurs. Have a great week
