Another High Technology Innovation that the Big Island almost had?

Do you remember when Henry was talking crazy about a Google project that would have come to either Mountain View or upper Kaumana back in 2010, but the State Legislature didn’t want to give Google a state corporate tax break for three years?

Well, it’s been three years, the Great State of Kansas gladly gave Google its three year corporate state tax break, and Google built the infrastructure for its “Gigabit Project” to finally have it finished. Now Overland Park, Kansas will benefit, as well as the rest of the state of Kansas in attracting new start-ups and various high technology business ventures likely associated with big data.

“Darn it, wish that kind of cool stuff of the future would come to places like the Big Island, or Hilo, or the State of Hawaii”…oops…I forgot [extreme sarcasm]…IT DID!…back in 2010…unfortunately no one was interested in high technology innovation…just short sighted greed and long term ignorance.

[Congratulations Overland Park, Kansas…glad you didn’t pull an “Ikaika” – the “Ikaika” reference is from the ABC network reality show ‘Making The Band’]

[Even the Huffington Post continues to keep this article available online – Arianna why do you continue to mock me]


I am a technologist with a strong background in software engineering. I have many interests. My current distractions are 70s-80s-90s music [it's a very eclectic collection], ontology, information architecture, mobile device technology, medical bioinformatics, artificial intelligence, and nanorobotics.
