Re-Think Hawaii Kicks Off


Starting today, through October 20, 2010, ReThink Hawaii brings together a diverse group of entrepreneurs together who might otherwise never cross-paths. Attendees are geeks and entrepreneurs, who come from sectors such as tech, media, entertainment, food and social good.  Folks will be viewing “Ocean Heavy” at HIFF, doing a ‘dish crawl’ at Doraku Sushi and Roy’s Waikiki, and attending a tweet-up with local Hawaii geeks and rethinkers.

The 2010 Tudou Video Festival Winner will address War of Internet Addiction and the Geeks will take a Waikiki Dinner Cruise and a private Pacific Aviation Tour.
