The State of Hawaii was once a leader in online governmental services. After losing ground during the financially difficult 90s, last year the State initiated a new program to make public services available via the World Wide Web. The cornerstone of this project is a new public-private relationship that has led to a new State Portal: eHawaiiGov. Join the key leaders who are making turning the vision into reality and learn what's available now, what will be available soon, and what the long-term plans are. As always, this will be a live call-in show so viewers will be able to ask questions and share comments about the State's movement toward online public services.

High Tech Hawai'i is a live monthly call-in show produced by the University of Hawai'I to shed light on high technology activities within the state. It airs live on the fourth Tuesday of each month during the academic year from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. It can be seen live on PEG Access cable channels throughout the state as well as on GTE Americast. On Oahu Cable it is on Channel 55, on GTE Channel 21, on Kauai Channel 10, and on Hawaii Channel 4 (Hilo area) or 13 (Kona). High Tech Hawai'i is also webcast live on the Internet the Internet using RealVideo by RealNetworks. Free player applications are available for both technologies.

During the live airing of the program, questions may be called in to 956-5670 or 1-800-342-7949 (neighbor islands), or sent by email to hth@hawaii.edu.
