8080 was started up due to a request from a number of close friends to allow people from Hawai'i and beyond to come together in the online technological world. 8080 allows members to discuss and network on practically anything and everything related to urbanism through art, music, fashion, etc.
As noted in other forums, the urban circle in Hawai'i is pretty special, where we're trademarked for helping each other up in providing information and updates on events and drops, muling, trading and so forth. It's all about "kokua aku, kokua mai" I help you, you help me, for you never know when you'll need to ask a favor from a fellow 8080 boardie.
What's especially right on is when opportunity knocks for us to get together and meet up in person. The genuine spirit of how we are as a people here in Hawai'i allows us to talk story, joke around and catch up on what's the latest in our vinyl and art collections. In true style, the way we think, work and help each other out spreads throughout the world with other forums and boardies from all over the world.
If you're a fellow 8080'er or joining our online sense of urbanism place from afar, we welcome you!
