Today was the opening day for the two-day Podcamp Hawaii.   It was a lot of great information, great variety of sessions, and plenty of wonderful people.   Here’s just a few of my notes from the day:

Opening blessings by Haunani and ‘Illima Kauka.  Followed by two lovely hula songs, danced by Kanoe Miller, and performed by The Casey Olson Trio.
