    Hi! Are there any other Haiku fans out there? I am working on a Haiku based social network called Heyku (app for iPhone) and would love some input/thoughts/ideas. You can sign up to try it here: www.heyku.me

    Namaste!

      Steve Jobs would approve

    I'll be there. Been trying to get to this group meetup for awhile but fate and my dogs and other stuff have interfered. No more. I'll be there. If not to read then to listen.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
