1  Bitcoin / Meetups / Anyone else in Austin this weekend (March 28 & 29)? on: March 25, 2015, 11:10:39 PM
Just in case anyone here wants to meet up, I'll be in Austin this Saturday and Sunday for the Texas Bitcoin Conference (attending, not presenting this time).

I'll also try to tweet as much as possible if anyone is interested: @BitBrew

Also, I'll be driving up each morning from San Antonio if anyone wants to car pool. You can message me here or send me an email at
2  Bitcoin / Meetups / San Antonio Bitcoin Meetup and the Bitcoin Syndicate on: March 02, 2015, 05:20:55 PM
Six months before I started the latest iteration of the San Antonio Bitcoin Meetup, the Bitcoin Syndicate launched in our area to promote, trade, and discuss Bitcoin. Unfortunately, actual meetups for this group were rare. Recently, the Organizer and co-Organizer stepped down and the group was in danger of being taken off I have some ideas about joining forces and coordinating our efforts so I've stepped in as Organizer of this group, as well.

Please attend our next meetup, if your in the area, to discuss next steps:

We'll discuss other crypto stuff, too, of course.

4  Economy / Services / Maintained list of Bitcoin accepting charities and other non-profits on: August 07, 2014, 05:44:38 PM
In my role as curator of the Bitcoin100 website, one of my duties has been to update our page of BTC accepting charities and non-profits that have been funded by Bitcoin100. As this list has grown, we've noticed that it is often referenced when the subject of charities and Bitcoin arises. In order to provide a more comprehensive resource, I'm attempting to maintain a list here and on the charity page of all BTC accepting charities and non-profits, whether or not they've been funded by Bitcoin100.

If I've missed any, please let me know and I'll update both lists.

If you know of a non-political, secular charity that recently added an option for supporters to contribute via Bitcoin on their website, please mention it at the "Official" Bitcoin100 bitcointalk thread.

On a side note, I've always refrained from asking for Bitcoin donations but finally decided to make an exception. Hosting and domain registration for comes straight out of my pocket, as well as the time and effort updating and maintaining it since Bruno (Phinnaeus) stepped down. Now that I'm taking on an even bigger workload, I'll accept any BTC you wish to send as compensation to 1ATH9VmMSTV3DePksTX4wqk3KCrS3qrJVz (Remember, this is my personal address and is not connected to Bitcoin100 in any way!)

5  Bitcoin / Meetups / San Antonio Bitcoin Meetup on: August 06, 2014, 07:43:12 PM
The Bitcoin scene in San Antonio has grown nicely since the last time I tried to get a meetup going back in 2012. Last week was our first meetup with six attendees (including myself) and I did practically no advertising. We discussed some Bitcoin fundamentals, alt coins, some projects/business ideas and a couple of us "old timers" regaled newbs with tales of yesteryear, when GPUs ruled the pools and all you could buy were alpaca socks and a pound of my coffee.

The latest incarnation of the San Antonio Bitcoin Meetup will take place every Thursday at 7 pm unless there is a substantial push to change days. I hope to engender an atmosphere where one can feel comfortable buying, selling or trading cryptocurrencies, discussing projects, ideas or mining rigs, or just learning more about this exciting and disruptive technology.

This week I wanted to spread the word but things have just been too hectic until today. If you're in the area and want to stop by, please do!
6  Bitcoin / Meetups / In Chicago already? Let's meet for lunch/early dinner! on: July 18, 2014, 05:47:17 PM
Just checked into my hotel and I'm starving. Anyone in town and want to meet up?

Also discussing on reddit:
7  Economy / Marketplace / Need a room for the Chicago Bitcoin conference? One available - 2 beds, 2 bath on: July 08, 2014, 04:47:24 PM
I booked two rooms for the Chicago Conference this month but I'll only need one. Instead of cancelling the other, I thought I'd see if anyone in the community wants to use it. I'll be checking in July 18th and leaving July 21st - changing these dates will require cancelling the original reservation and I won't be able to get the same rate so anyone interested will be responsible for all three nights.


Hotel - Hilton Chicago

2 Double Beds, 2 full separate bathrooms
Non Smoking Room

PM me for price. Bitcoin gladly accepted!
8  Economy / Auctions / Auction - Domain starting at 0.01 BTC! on: June 23, 2014, 11:29:21 AM
I registered this domain name back in 2011 with the intention of eventually starting a Bitcoin related game or lottery. I've since taken on a lot more projects and don't see myself ever using this domain.

Bidding starts at 0.01 BTC with minimum bidding increments of 0.01 BTC.

Auction ends four days from today:

9  Economy / Services / What would you like to see at the Bitcoin General Store? on: May 31, 2014, 03:43:56 PM
We at the Bitcoin General Store are looking for some quality products to buy with bitcoins.

The BGS is working hard at closing the loop within the Bitcoin economy, buying almost all our inventory exclusively with bitcoins. We buy in bulk to keep our prices competitive and take no pre-orders.

Do you know someone who crafts or sells items bitcoiners would be interested in if only they knew about them? Do you want to buy from a producer outside the US but international shipping charges make it impractical? Let us know! Post a response, send me a PM here or use the Contact page to tell me who we should be in touch with.

11  Economy / Services / Operation Fabulous updates on: March 09, 2014, 02:58:10 AM
What, you haven't heard of Operation Fabulous?

I guess I shouldn't be surprised. For an advertising platform, we've done a lackluster job of promoting our own product. We've also been rather neglectful of incorporating features and improvements that many of our customers would like to see. Well, that's all about to change.

We built a new stats system in the backend and a new views and clicks graph on the ad space page. Within a few days we will also add a "top referrers" table to the ad space page that will be useful for advertisers to see if an ad space is placed on more that one site. We also plan to overhaul the publisher site listing in the coming month to allow searching and filtering instead of a long list which might not be sorted in an ideal way for advertisers. This will also give publishers a better visibility of their ad spaces.

Additional improvements are planned, but we’ll provide updates on the official Operation Fabulous blog as we address them.

Operation Fabulous, serving the Bitcoin community since 2011.

12  Bitcoin / Press / 2013-10-27 USA Today - Wolff: How CEOs are clueless about technology on: October 28, 2013, 03:54:04 PM

Not about Bitcoin, per se, but I believe this article demonstrates why Bitcoin isn't used more often as a currency: those who aren't as tech oriented as we are just don't get it.

Here's a story recently related to me by a guest at a White House dinner, which included Google's Eric Schmidt: The president, whose most important job is surely to protect the integrity of the monetary system, smugly asked Schmidt if Bitcoin, one of many growing challenges to currency hegemony, was anything he had to worry about.

14  Other / Meta / When is an Off-Topic thread TOO off-topic? on: June 22, 2013, 04:29:48 PM
I'm just wondering when a thread in the Off-topic section crosses the line and shouldn't be considered something "that might be of interest to bitcoiners".

As some of you may know, there is a member apparently using this forum to write the first draft of his autobiography and, even though I sympathize with him and understand his desire to express himself, I really don't see why it "might be of interest to bitcoiners".

Of course, I know that, technically, anything might interest bitcoiners, but does that mean that no topic is so far off the mark that it shouldn't be broadcast to forum members?
15  Other / Off-topic / WSJ Article: The Trouble With Kickstarter on: June 21, 2013, 12:05:09 PM
The Trouble With Kickstarter

I thought this was an interesting read. Seems many are being frequently bugged by friends and relatives to help fund their Kickstarter projects and they're getting tired of it.

For aspiring artists, crowdfunding sites that raise cash from the masses can make a dream project come true. For contributors like Annabelle Gurwitch, they're a potential minefield.

The Los Angeles actress and comedian is worried she'll create personal or professional bad blood if she ignores the constant requests for money. So she funds nearly every one she gets—from a show by a director friend (she might want a role one day) to a web series by a fellow actress (they shared a dressing room at the time). An old classmate she hadn't seen in 30 years asked her for "quite a bit of money" while another campaigner complained that she didn't offer enough. Ms. Gurwitch, who gives up to $1,000 a year, considers this the art-world equivalent of paying protection money to the mob. "I'm terrified not to contribute," she says.

At least with BitcoinStarter contributions are anonymous. I imagine one day instead of saying "I gave at the office" we'll be saying "I've already contributed with bitcoins."

I have a hard time letting go of projects, especially one that I've invested as much time and effort into as The Bitcoin List. I've finally come to terms, however, with the fact that it requires more TLC than I can spare and I require more BTC for other projects.  Cry

Some pageview stats from the wordpress dashboard:

Auction ends June 30, midnight, UTC:

18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Another San Jose Conference Recap on: May 23, 2013, 02:15:58 PM
I just put up a post at BitBrew detailing my experiences at the Bitcoin 2013 San Jose Conference: It's by no means exhaustive, but I tried to include as my take on the panels and discussions I attended, as well as the bitcoiners I met and conversations I had on a day-by-day basis. I've also liberally sprinkled dozens of links, including one to the first video from the conference that I've come across online, Adam B. Levine's talk "Youtube is Broken, Rethinking Content Monetization with Bitcoin."
19  Economy / Goods / Going to San Jose! BitBrew orders placed next week should expect delays. on: May 10, 2013, 08:22:45 PM
I'll be gone for a few days, so any orders placed between May 13 and May 20 should expect a few more days than usual for the product to arrive.

See you at the conference!
20  Economy / Services / Artists needed for experimental project on: May 02, 2013, 11:15:52 PM
I can PM anyone interested with more details, I just don't want to release too much information publicly before the official launch. I'm looking for visual artists of any and every type. Devote as much or as little time as you want. You can even use work you've done before that hasn't previously been released.
