Manoa Geeks from hawaii on Vimeo.
The February 2008 gathering of Manoa Geeks saw a record turnout. Hosted at Oceanit in downtown Honolulu, about 50 local technology and web gurus and fans came together to talk shop. Adobe code development, the semantic web, the Microsoft-Yahoo deal, and the Apple MacBook Air were among the many topics discussed.
Manoa Geeks is the brainchild of Aaron Dragushan of Wondermill. The first gathering took place in March 2007 at a coffee shop in Manoa (hence the name), with a handful of people. But soon, it outgrew most meeting spaces and is now hosted by local companies hoping to make connections with the talented and creative minds that attend.
The above is the embedded video player from Vimeo, one of the few online video hosts to serve up HD content. To see the HD video (and not a scaled and compressed Flash version), however, you need to view it at Vimeo or download the original movie file (147MB/1250x720/MP4). It should look great on an Apple TV.
You can also watch this video via low quality but fast loading Flash players at YouTube, Google Video, Yahoo! Video, Viddler, and Blip TV. And several versions of this video (including high-definition MPEG-4 and DivX) can be downloaded from the Internet Archive.
