ulukau - the hawaiian language digital library

I am one of the individuals involved in the establishment of Ulukau, the Hawaiian Language Digital Library project. Ulukau includes the Hawaiian newspaper archives, the Hawaiian language academic journal "Ka Ho‘oilina," searchable Hawaiian language dictionaries, the Hawaiian Bible, a huge database of Hawai‘i place names, digitized books, and many other resources. My MA thesis is posted there, with audio samples of the songs I analyzed.

tv appearances

I've made three appearances on David Lassner's High Tech Hawai‘i television program, two of which can be viewed online. In the first appearance, broadcast in April 2000, I discussed our use of technology in our Hawaiian language programs, and joined Keola Beamer in discussing how he and I use the World Wide Web to promote Keola's music. In my most recent appearance, I discussed the development and delivery of our online Hawaiian language classes.

wired magazine

An article about my colleagues and myself was written in Wired Magazine ("How Do You Say Computer In Hawaiian?") in August 1995. Connie Hale wrote about our use of technology in our Hawaiian language programs.

Another article ("Aloha, You've Got Hawaiian 101") was published in Wired in September, 2002, which talked about the Hawaiian language classes we were teaching via the World Wide Web.
