John Heckathorn was a prominent figure in Hawaii's media and journalism circles. He was a publisher, columnist, teacher and a friend to many. John was one of the few traditional media personalities that made the successful transition to new media. He passed on Christmas day of a heart attack.
John Heckathorn, we'll miss you.
Everyone who got a chance to cross paths with John knows his passion, humor and intelligence. He will be missed but he will live on in our hearts.

The first CityCamp Honolulu took place on December 3rd that brought together City specialists and engage citizens to explore ways to use technology to leverage City data. It's the first step in what many hope to be a path to Open Data, government transparency and civic engagement. Notes from CityCampHNL will be posted to http://citycamphnl.org. In the meantime here are photos from the event: http://www.flickr.com/photos/bytemarks/sets/72157628270251487/
CityCamp Honolulu (97)
CityCamp Honolulu took place on Dec 3, 2011 at the Univ. of Hawaii Campus Center Ballroom. It was an opportunity to look at turning available City data into novel applications and drive citizen engagement.
You can literally watch as the fronts move in. On a recent trip there most of the day was spent in a conference room teaching a class. The view out of our window was the Astoria Megler Bridge. There was a bit of sun on the first afternoon but a winter front rolled in bringing 50-60 mile an hour winds and freezing (horizontal) rain. It's beautiful country but it chilled me to the bone.
I caught Mayor Carlisle at the See-IT exhibit and asked him about the upcoming CityCamp Honolulu. It was an impromptu interview during a media event prior to official opening of the APEC 2011 events. You can find more about City Camp Honolulu at http://citycamphnl.org
Nainoa Thompson delivers a moving keynote address at the 10th Annual Astronaut Lacy Veach Day of Discovery at Punahou School. What moved me the most was Nainoa's recollection of Lacy's vision, that if the world could learn how the Hawaiian people create a culture of Aloha we could save the island called Earth.
