A little dream of mine realized!!!!


I have had this theory that my hometown of Hutchinson, Kansas needed a internet gathering point, a community spot that we could get together and act like it was the coffee shop of old that we just don't have time for anymore.

I also wanted this site for selfish reasons. I have a ton of things that I think websites in Hutch should be doing and they aren't. For the longest time I have wanted a platform to do these things on.

Anyhow long story short... About 30 months ago I began having this idea for this site. I tried pitching to a couple of folks to pay LogicMaze to do it. I tried getting some investors and getting it done with joint ownership. I tried all these things cause I just didn't see the time to fit it into the schedule to get it done on LogicMaze time with out getting paid for it.

Well time went by and I decided I needed to beg my beautiful wife to help me just get this done on whatever time was available. And here it is. www.whatsuphutch.com theres not much there yet, cool little community builder/very simple social networking components for making new connections or finding old ones. A place for anyone that wants to post a community blog to do so. A few columnists with alot more to come! A few little ideas for things you could do in Hutch. A place for cool pictures, everybody likes pics and a place for video. Few links provide by Hutch News rss and our own RSS feeds to subscribe to. I promise we will grow it much bigger very fast and continue to try and add cool. Please, Please Please sen your suggestions to info@whatsuphutch.com .

Anyhow I am pretty stoked, please go check it out. Send it to anyone you might know who would give a rat's butt and now we have 2 places to get together.

For those of you that don't live in Hutch anymore or never did, come on over and see what you think, I thought of you guys some and I think there will be something there for you too.

If you are a Blackberry or Treo freak go ahead and check it out there too we are finalizing the mobile version.
