Founder Institute : Chapter in Hawaii??

There's a great organization called the Founder Institute. It's online at Its objective is helping startups get started, even if you're only at the idea stage. Have a look at their website via the link, below. I think this would be a great resource for those of us looking to get our startup started up. But there's NO CHAPTER here in Hawaii. Here's what the website says about getting one started: "The Founder Institute looks for the highest quality…See More

Roger Garrett replied to John Barrett's discussion Agency Name
"What's a digital agency? You might start off by using a phrase that clearly identifies what it is that your company does. "Digital agency" says nothing about your company."

I just came across this quote... "[Silicone] Valley has always had huge companies, not just scrappy startups. They bring in all the engineers and then they leave. That's where the startups come from". Can Hawaii really have a startup environment without the huge companies that produce the experienced engineers?See More

The road from concept to successful product is a long and difficult one. This group tries to make that trip a bit easier by bringing together inventors, marketers, and business people to share their knowledge and experience.

About Me:
If anyone in here is old enough to remember Interface Age magazine (late 70s) you may recall a monthly column titled "The Inventor's Sketchpad". Well, I wrote that column. I also wrote a book, "The Complete Starship: A Simulation Project" way back then, describing how a simulation could be constructed using personal computers.

Ah yes, I remember now. I simulated a tic tac toe machine that worked by beads dropping into buckets. No hurry on the scan, I have a copy in Seattle. But it would be fun to see it again.

Roger, I just noticed your profile. I had an article published in Interface Age. It was for a game on Altair/Imsai type machines with a video card (Lee Felsenstein's in my case). The game was Snake and you used the front panel switches to direct the snake. They published the hex code for it and I know at least one person entered in all that hex because he wrote a letter pointing out a bug. I knew about the bug but had left it in as a kind of cheat, it let the snake out of one corner. Oh heck, it might even have been Octal they listed. So, yes, I remember Interface age!

E komo mai Roger! We hope you find some fellow inventors and robotics guys in our community.

The FAQ is a good place to learn about the site. You may want to join some of the interest groups such as User Experience Design and Robotics.

We hope you find TechHui useful and invite others. See you in the groups and forums!
