We kick off today’s show talking about the HPR mobile app… and we’re delighted to have Hawaii Public Radio general manager Jose Fajardo here in the studio to tell us all about it. Then we explore the world of cryptocurrency, the concept of the blockchain and a bill to create a blockchain working group moving through this legislative session. We talk with two experts, UH Associate Professor Lipyeow Lim and James Wang, CEO of Slickage.
First we’ll look at the latest tech news and happenings in Hawaii and beyond. Then joining us today is Bryan Butteling to tell us about the upcoming Startup Weekend event. Finally, we’ll talk to McKay Davis and Sam Durham from Bitcoin Hawaii to find out about crypto-currencies and how exactly they work.
