This is my final entry in this blog. I'm going to switch to a different PBS Hawaii digital media platform.
I want to thank everyone who has read my blog at one time or another over the last half-dozen years. Extra thanks to folks who have subscribed to it!
It's been fun sharing with you some of the things happening around this public television station and around Hawaii. As a result of connections made on this blog, I've talked with people all over the state and even in other countries.
One of my blog readers actually became a member of PBS Hawaii's Board of Directors! This is where I became aware of his fine work in Hawaiian language and Hawaiian music.
That's Dr. Keola Donaghy, now at UH Maui, formerly of UH Hilo, who jumped into a controversy I shared here, having to do with a visiting filmmaker's brutal mispronunciation of Hawaiian words. The filmmaker refused to correct the errors. This blog became electrified with commentary as native Hawaiians all over the world complained online.
As one of the commenters, Keola ended up volunteering to teach the filmmaker's New York narrator how to pronounce the place names. The narrator was a pro and wanted to be correct. A 7 am (Hawaii time) phone session solved that issue.
While this blog is going away, I will be back, communicating with you in digital media, in 2015.
Again, thank you so much. See you in the New Year in cyberspace!
