One of the great delights about Hawaii is the diversity you get at events where one might expect a niche crowd. At today’s Big Island Internet meet-up, there were entrepreneurs, people commending the “global consciousness” enabled by the Internet, and a surprising number of martial artists.
The speaker, Tom Callos, is a serial entrepreneur. He told a fascinating story about developing and maintaining a premium- priced Web business for owners of martial arts studios, a group not known for their free- spending ways.
Many thanks to Damon Tucker and Larry Czerwonka for organizing the meeting and to Big Island Pizza for hosting (and providing some excellent pizza!). Meetups are scheduled for the 2nd Saturday of the month; there was some talk about trying to do one on the Kona side but for now they are centered in Hilo.
