nope it's not in hawaii. the dean of nyu's interactive telecommunications program stole it for her office :) it's difficult to transport because the cylinders are 3 feet tall ... and full of water and electricity ...
I work in the Distance Education office at HPU assisting instructors and students with their online courses. I am also in the process of developing an online Communications course to be taught at HPU in the summer.
Hey Daniel I do see we have similar interests. It was nice meeting you tonight at the .NET Users group meeting and I am glad you pointed me to this site. It looks as though this is shaping up to be a good network for the Hawaii tech community.
I'm glad you enjoyed the GUI talk. I was also surprised by the enthusiastic tech questions. I didn't expect the questions I got, so it was actually really fun. I wasn't disappointed in the information that was shared, because I learned some things, which is what I wanted. I enjoy sharing what I know, but I love learning even more!
As for the Mac OS X question, yes, we have done work on high profile Apple applications. All for third parties, not Apple We're on the list of Apple preferred vendors for GUI design consulting. We've done icon design for AOL's AIM, a product for Borland, and a few products for SmithMicro. We're working on a full application GUI design for a Mac OS X product right now, but it's still stealth.
I'd love to get together some time to share stories. I am heading to SF on Tuesday and will be back the first week of February. Please let me know if you are interested in meeting for lunch when I return? If so, we can arrange a date/time/place via here or email.
