Secondly, can sgornick's news items be put on the front-page? I'd like to see him become maintainer of a front-page news feed.

http://www.bitcoinnews.com/

It shows to new people that this project is active, and things are happening. Especially for new services to get limelight.

Maybe also show the exchange rate. It's a common question for new users to ask how much a bitcoin is, and where they can get some.

Can we also get away from having 'the one true' version of bitcoin listed?

Ideally we want multiple clients. There should be a list of different clients like "here's some ways of connecting to bitcoin:"... For now it'd only be 'Bitcoin' and 'BitCoinJ'. But in the future would be Python clients, various forks and builds for different platforms.

Could the mainline Bitcoin also be renamed? It's confusing to refer to the currency, protocol and 1 implementation by one name. I suggest Bytecoin to mix things up a bit.

The whole idea would be a list of different implementations. No one version would be better.

I realise this is bad for end-user convenience, but it's *much* more healthy for project development, because this way many versions get exposure instead of one version approved by the cabal to go up on the site. Diversify.

I got over-excited seeing the title.

How comes you made a wrapper for bitcoind? Seems a bit superfluous :p Thanks for sharing.

btw, I improved ServiceProxy. You should use my version, https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/API_tutorial_%28JSON-RPC%29#Python

Just a tip: if they consistently apply proper spacing and capitalisation, then their perceived language skills would sky-rocket. It's a small thing that takes 20 mins to learn.

- Spaces after ALL punctuation.
- No spaces before.
- Initial capitals after .?!
- No more than one space.
- Don't mix ...,.,., and only ever use a single .
- Don't use Chinese idioms in English.
- Titles should follow the Wikipedia style guide: Initial capital with Names capitalised. (it's the easiest to remember and use IMO)
- 1 idea per paragraph. Paragraphs should be around 3-6 sentences.

Overall pretty cool experiment. Can't wait to see round 2.

So basically your teacher is having you make some work and earn some money for him!??

Tell him bitcoin is money, it's not an educational toy or something...

Kial vi agas kiel malbonulo? Por kialo? Nefario nur penas helpi nin, tiel la economio de bitmono etendos. Cxesu cxar vi insultas ilin antaux iliaj studentoj. Vi agas kiel se bitmono estas serioza afero, kiu nur seriozuloj enpartoprenas.

Kaj kiu problemo ekzistas? Nenio. Pli da pli uloj kreskigas la komunumon de bitmono. Sen tio, niaj monoj senvaloriĝos... Vere, cxu ĝi cxagrenas vin ke ni havas iome cxinajn angl-malparolantojn?

Tamen la idea bonas. Provu vidi ĝin kiel amuzeto Smiley

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.

LR is working fine,
every year someone comes out of the woodwork with some fear mongering claims that LR
are going to close, or they are shutting down, and it never happens.

Looks like Madhatter was right though.

Clap, clap.
1528  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Mining power of Bitcoin vs other networks on: March 20, 2011, 06:07:37 AM
Hey,

I'm looking for data and graphs so I can compare Bitcoin to other networks/supercomputers to show to laymans in visual terms how much more powerful our computing power is. It's a good argument in favour of Bitcoin's network rock hardiness.

Numbers comparing Bitcoin hashing rate to Protein@FOLDING and SETI are much welcome.

jgarzik says: ~5800 petaflops whereas F@H = 10 pflops.

People were discussing tor and deepweb on 4chan and Bitcoin came up:

"its legit. Most common is LSD since its so easy to ship.
they have an online currency they use....BTC which is about .86cent : 1BTC"

Not going to replicate all the comments but a bunch of people were discussing silkroad.

Nefario, please don't take it wrong, but what about you teach them english as you are supposed to do, instead of forcing them to sell themselves on the web for bitcoins?

shut up.

Actually it's a hackmeeting on the 4th and a conference on the 6th:

Worth coming to the hackmeeting IMO if you can make it.
