Peace Out Party Peoples

Hi folks,

Back in July, I mentioned that I'd be taking a break from this particular blogging gig. Turned out to be a bit more than just a break, and I figure I might as well make it official: this is my farewell post for Hip Hapa.

There's a small (very small!) part of this decision that stems from the site's name. The frustration some Native Hawaiians feel over appropriation of the word hapa by Asian Americans does reflect some of my own concerns--so I think it's probably worth easing away from promoting the word through a public and (vaguely commercial) venture, out of respect for other people's passionate feelings (although anyone who researches this issue, as I have, will find that there are precious few of these people around).

But to reiterate, moving on from Hip Hapa has almost nothing to do with the name. What motivates me to get out of the blogging game is the blogging game. Web 2.0 is heralded as the greatest thing since sliced bread, but for the time being at least, this scene is decidedly not for me. While people claim that this is a great way to communicate with others and form community, I'm not seeing it. I swear I could write a book about my irritation with the medium, but instead, let's just say this: DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE.

On my way out, though, I'd like to point you in the direction of someone who is killing it on the blogging circuit and who deserves your readership: colinresponse does what I've been trying to do here, but better. Check it out.

And please stay tuned to this site, too, because who knows what exciting plans Mix76 has for it in the future.

But as for me, to quote my bard...

There have been times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in big starting capital.
Nowadays, I feel good, I started to get real income.
It gets down to choose a proper companion who utilizes your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the income with me.

You may get interested, if there are such firms? I have to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info. [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]
