Would be even more interesting to talk about Bitcoin. Too bad I don't live in the US.

I'm talking with the conference organizer right now...

Although the conference literature and speaking schedule has long been set in stone, the organizer is interested in squeezing in something about bitcoin somewhere...

What bitcoiners are planning to attend this?  If we can get speaking slot, I'll buy a last minute ticket, attend the conference and help with the pitch.

I doubt the people at that conference would touch Bitcoin with a 10 foot pole. Citibank? Paypal?? Both have huge ties to government. Those companies would get punished severely for using Bitcoin in their products. They might see it as future competition though.

Good point. Come to think of it, I don't think I'd want to take Bitcoin to this particular conference, for the same reasons.

The idea of bitcoins existing in some ethereal world outside government regulation is fantasy, and always has been.

I want bitcoin to succeed; that means doing stuff like paying your taxes with bitcoins.

TANSTAAFL.

I will be attending this conference on Monday.  While I agree that the vast majority of typical bankers will have no desire to see bitcoin succeed, there is a small subset that will see the inherent opportunity.  It's that subset that I am willing to work with and educate along the way.  I'll let you know how the conference goes.

If any other bitcoiners will be there, please let me know.

While I agree that the vast majority of typical bankers will have no desire to see bitcoin succeed, [...]

That's painting with a broad brush Smiley  Most bankers probably have never heard of bitcoin, and when they do, they won't care because it won't change their daily lives one bit.  The bankers I talk with say "hum, that's pretty cool" and then go back to filing Smiley

Bitcoin is a currency.  When bitcoin is big, they will use it.  While bitcoin is small, they will ignore it just like they ignore the currencies of hundreds of tiny, inconsequential countries.

Bankers are just there to make money while handling money.  It's not an ideology Smiley
