Title: Gavin on Omega Tau podcast
Post by: theymos on March 20, 2011, 01:38:08 AM
Gavin talked for an hour and a half on the Omega Tau podcast, where he gave a great overview of Bitcoin. Mostly he talks about how Bitcoin works technically. Even though the concepts were simplified (probably due to time constraints), this is the first Bitcoin overview on a podcast that I've felt was completely accurate. Way to go, Gavin!

I liked it a lot, too. Usually, I show more technically interested people the episode on Security Now, but this surpasses it by far, due to its length and Gavin on board, so it will be my new reference from now on. :)

Nice, but got a bit boring towards the end- I suppose I find it hard to concentrate without video. The start was nice, it's always good hearing gavin's thoughts on the nature of money.

Thanks for the positive feedback!

Markus did a great job putting together an outline for what we'd talk about ahead of time, so I had time to plan how to explain complicated concepts like public key cryptography in just a couple of minutes.
