Many people know that Maui is home to one of the world's 25 most powerful supercomputer centers. Fewer people realize the extent to which Maui has come alive with high tech over the past decade. For example, did you know that Maui will likely have the State's first "3G" wireless Internet service?

For the first time in its 5-year history, High Tech Hawaii will leave the friendly confines of Manoa Valley for a live broadcast from Maui Community College in order to feature high technology activities on Maui. Join host David Lassner of the University of Hawaii and a panel of guests from the Maui Research and Technology Park as they share a glimpse of what may become Hawaii's "Silicon Valley Isle" and speculate about its future.

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.

High Tech Hawaii is a live monthly call-in show produced by the University of Hawaii to shed light on high technology activities within the state.
