Things have been hectic in East Hawai’i for the past few weeks. I spent a few days in Honolulu toward the end of March, setting up an XServer at UH-Manoa. It’ll be the eventual home of Ulukau, our Hawaiian Language Digital Library. Our son returned from Iraq to Honolulu that week as well, so I stayed over and greeted him and the other returning soldiers at Wheeler Airforce Base.
I got heavily involved in writing up a big grant proposal for our technology section at Ka Haka ‘Ula O Ke’elikolani, and then our son and some of the other Hawai’i island members of the 411th Batallion returned home to march in the “Merrie Monarch” parade.
