eBay founder Pierre Omidyar has had a soft launch with his new attempt at making news profitable online with the Honolulu Civil Beat and I myself am pretty disappointed that it isn’t going to feature neighbor island news at this time.
I sure won’t be paying $240.00 a year to basically be allowed to make comments on the site… However, what I could do… is simply take snippets of their news and allow any Joe Blow that wants… to make the comments on my site for free.
So I ask the question… would you be willing to pay $240.00 a year to billionaire Omidyar to run what at this point, just looks like a contributory news site run by folks that were hand selected by the billionaire?

The 11th Annual Waimea Healthy KeikiFest will feature more than 20 hands-on activities for keiki, ages 3 to 12. While keiki have fun learning about growing up safe and healthy, they’ll earn credits they can use to make a Mother’s Day gift and jump in a bouncer. Saturday, May 1st, from 10 am to 1 pm at the Parker Ranch Center.
Eleven ears ago, parents organized the Waimea Healthy KeikiFest as a way to share information about safety and health in fun and engaging ways. In the first few years, KeikiFest was held in the Waimea School Cafeteria. When this annual community event outgrew the Waimea School cafeteria, Parker Ranch Center graciously stepped in to host KeikiFest.
All the activities continue to be free.
Keiki Fest is presented by Tutu’s House, which is a project of Friends of the Future, a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization. For more information visit www.TutusHouse.org or call 885-6777.
