We hope everyone is having a good new year!

We haven’t done this in quite a long time and the HI Capacity space has come quite a long way. Join us after a year of being in our own space to talk about some current challenges that we have been and are facing. There are a lot of pros and cons about our current situation and we will be addressing the changes for our beloved hackerspace.

Although we want to provide the best experience for members at a very good rate, it has become an issue for us financially and we need to take action to be able to sustain the space.

Value for the members need to be very concrete and put forth to the public. Although we would love all the support we can get from the community, we need to also have a compelling product for not just the members but for the public as a whole. Our public events have been proven to be worthwhile to the tech community but we need to provide more for our existing paying members to differentiate the membership value. The purpose of this all-hands meeting is to take in public’s opinions with a Q and A session with what people are looking for in the space, both physically and virtually.

Please join us on the 23rd of January @ 7PM for the HI Capacity all hands meeting!

HICapacity is hosting a new (possibly monthly) event where we take a deep dive into public web pages with Chrome Dev Tools. The point is to look at what works well and what doesn’t work so well when trying to develop high traffic web pages for the public. We hope that through this we can find common patterns among quality web pages, discover interesting solutions to difficult problems, and maybe even some quick fixes that were overlooked.

We’ll also be exploring how to effectively use Chrome Dev Tools to debug your web page. Dev Tools offers a complete suite of tools including a HTML and JS debugger with breakpoints on both JS code and DOM events, a FPS (Frames per Second) counter, and much much more. I’ll be walking through some of the tools that I know how to use and when to use them effectively.

This event was inspired by the later half of this YouTube video (Colt’s Talk): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E7Bafn-pr2s

What’s Required:

  • Please bring your own laptop with the Chrome web browser installed. So you can follow along.
  • An open mind.


  • A few web sites for us to look at. Feel free to suggest your own website and maybe we can find a few trick to help speed up your site or tweak the UI/UX.

We would like this to be an informal discussion so be prepared to offer your own insight and opinions.

When: Thursday, December 5, 2013 7:00pm

Where: HI Capacity (in the Box Jelly), 307a Kamani Street Honolulu, 96813. (Please park on Ward Ave, Kamani street, or surrounding street parking).

Bio coming soon!


This talk will introduce brain-computer interfaces (BCI) assuming no background in the field. Beginning with the basic phenomenon of neural conduction, the talk will introduce major measurement technologies with a focus on electroencephalography (EEG) and offer examples of current BCI paradigms and their applications. Next, active areas of research and development, good DIY projects, and public data stores will be introduced. The talk will conclude with a discussion of current problems and future issues.

When: Wednesday, October 23, 2013 7:00pm

Where: HI Capacity (in the Box Jelly), 307a Kamani Street Honolulu, 96813. (Please park on Ward Ave, Kamani street, or surrounding street parking).
