Next meeting: January 8, 2010

Hello hackers! Our fearless founder Sandy has moved back to the mainland, where he'll probably stay for at least a year or two. For now, I've taken over updating this blog.

First order of business for 2010: the first Friday in January is also the first day in January. And being New Years Day, the mall is probably closed.

So, at the December meeting we decided to bump this one back to the second Friday: January 8th. We don't really have a specific agenda planned out, but we'll probably be talking about shiny new tech stuff and fixing broken old stuff. If you're coming for the first time, we'll be the ones at the food court with laptops and random electronics all over the table.

In the meantime, the Winter issue might be released before this meeting (or on the same day). If you want to keep an eye on it, I recommend subscribing to the rss feed at

August Meeting

We met once again at the fabolous Prince Kuhio food court for fine dining and discussion.

I put flyers in Summer issue of 2600. Hopefully September's meeting will draw a few new people. If you came here because of that flyer you're invited to join us next month. Please post here with any questions you have.
We'll be easy to spot as we're likely the only ones to bring laptops to the mall on a Friday night.
