Kicking off this hour, we’ll hear first-hand from organizers of three special events coming up in the next few days. Meli James from the Hawaii Venture Capital Association returns to tell us about tomorrow’s Women in Tech panel. Then Dave Raatz from the Maui County Council joins us by phone to tell us about the annual Hawaii State Association of Counties conference. Then, Dave Ulrich from Pacific New Media joins to fill us in about this weekend’s f808 Photo Hawaii festival. Finally, after the break, we’ll dedicate the rest of the show to explore the resurgence of podcasting. Has ‘the next big thing’ been going strong all along? Here to talk about it is Todd Cochrane from Geek News Central, Blubrry and RawVoice, and Kimi Morton from Hot Better Pop.
On tonight’s special edition of Bytemarks Cafe, we’ll jump right into our conversation with a couple of news guests. Wei Fong from Interisland Terminal joins us to talk about the June Kaboom at Agora. Then Jay Fidell returns to tell us about the next ThinkTech panel on Military in Hawaii. Finally, we’ll meet a local group called the Science Communicator Ohana. Science is, in fact, behind more and more of the stories leading the news, making the ability to explain and provide context even more important. What are some of the tools and strategies communications professionals use?
We start things off with a couple of special guests, who tell us about their upcoming events. Bryan Butteling from Sultan Ventures is here to tell us about the next Startup Weekend. Then Ian Kitajima is here to fill us in on the annual Design Thinking Bootcamp. Finally, we’ll talk about the sharing economy with Ben Trevino from Bike Share and Aaron Landry from Car2Go Honolulu.
Today we’ll get right to our great guests. First up, Alan Tamayose will tell us about the upcoming Kamehameha School EdTech UNconference. Then, Bob Monroe joins us to tell us about Hacker High School. Then, continuing our “hacker” conversation, we’ll move onto our main topic after the break. Zal Azmi from Nexus Solutions LLC and Andrew Lanning from Integrated Security Technologies will join us to share their perspectives on cyber security.
