10th year anniversary of HawaiiThreads
 
In case anyone is interested April of 2014 is the 10th year anniversary of HawaiiThreads.

Normally we would do a pot luck picnic or be part of Geek Meet but this year's Geek Meet is on June 1st.

We've been doing this for ten years? That's insane. And difficult to fathom.

Yep. Check the join date on our posts, which gives it as the month and year (Apr 2004).

Whew. In 2004:
  • The most popular brand on the web was Microsoft's MSN.
  • TIME magazine named Friendster as a top website, Facebook just launched.
  • There was no Google Maps. It was all about MapQuest.
  • The Howard Dean campaign was revolutionizing online organizing. Kinda.
  • Online photo sharing site Flickr launched, converted from an online game.
Mark your calendars for June 1, 2014, where we'll celebrate HT's 10th anniversary as well as the seventh annual Hawaii Geek Meet!

Just came back from the Geek Meet, ran into some people I haven't seen in a long time and also to some other people that I see on a daily basis.

This one exchange between a co-worker and myself went like this:

co-worker: So what group are you with?
me (think about a few seconds and said): I am with Hawaii Threads
co-worker: Helen I didn't know you sew!

How long is long? The initial announcement was posted on April 15, 2014.

I'm sorry to have missed this again. The photos I've seen would seem to indicate that a great time was had by all. Perhaps next year!

That's adequate, Helen. Somehow I must have missed it. Mea culpa.

A couple of reminders building up to the event would be helpful next year, even better yet put the date as part of the thread title.:cool:

Speaking of videos, here's a great video of the Hawaii Geek Meet 2014:

Aerial drone photography makes everything cooler! The multi-quadcopter flight shot at three minutes in is my favorite.

Ah, the "good old days" .... when HT was my first stop upon turning on the internet each day. And part of the "best of the best" was when 1stwahine would visit the site, before she got Politically Correct. Ha! :D:D
