Hey DrG and boognish!

Update: I went to see that specialist, and took him DrG's write-up.

The orthopaedic specialist said your write-up was very good and he agrees with your approach (cautious skepticism regarding surgery, treatment plan, 2 different injuries).

He did some physical tests and told me that the first injury from my wrestling days is probably a chipped piece of cartilage, or possibly a fracture. The chipped piece of cartilage is stopping my arm fully extending by 1-2cm compared with my right arm. I had an x-ray and go back in 2 weeks to see about that. He said that if it is a chipped piece of cartilage then it is probably not a good idea to operate (since it would have healed over during these 4 years), and the way forwards is with physical therapy. Surgery is a last resort.

When I banged my elbow 1 year ago, he says this is scholars elbow and that the tingling/aching I feel, is where the nerve is regenerating itself. And that nerve damage takes a *really really* long time to heal.
I think it is this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olecranon_bursitis (not sure)

Overall I'm really happy! Could've been worse! Feel free to chip in with your own diagnostics doctors. Just putting this out there so everyone can see you're the real deal and did such a good job. The specialist liked your write-up. I stopped twice while reading it, but he asked for the whole thing and said it was good.

Keep it up! This is the future and you are doing good by providing people with easy access medicine. Of course, an online doctor is not a replacement for a real specialist, but it is a good supplement that can only help make people more healthier if used in a correct ethical manner.

Hugs & kisses,

Genjix

Mi skribis multajn bonajn artikolojn kaj tiuj kiuj sukcesigxis aspekti esti sen skemo. Nun mi enmetos tro longan kaj priskriban titlon en miaj skriboj.

Ankaux multaj homoj ne komprenas la artikolon. Retmono ne sonas interese! Mono de la reto estas ion kiel PayPal. Bitmono estas firm-nomo, ne nomo por abstrakta ideo. Tamen algoritmo malsimplas, sed mi ne konas pli bonan vorton.

I like it. Has good flow and stuff. Just needs better production values is all.
704  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Algorithmic money: Bitcoin needs a buzzword and own lexicon on: March 11, 2012, 02:18:47 PM
So why algorithmic money? Why not crypto-currency or p2p money?

Well...

p2p is an old buzzword, and one used by bittorrent though. I even heard my bank manager call their bank accounts peer to peer. It's a common finance term now.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peer-to-peer_banking

crypto sounds shady to most people. Like crypto-jews or crypto-nazis. People who want to hide things. Also technically DigiCash was a crypto-currency (and centralised). Bitcoin's defining feature it uses code to self regulate in a decentralised manner without an authority.

emoney, internet money or digital cash sounds like paypal. Not at all new or interesting.

Algorithm is a neutral word. If someone doesn't know what it means, they will google it and get a good description.

Quote by Nick Szabo who made bit gold, one of the fore-runners to bitcoin:

Quote
And what's up with the term "cryptocurrency"? What is it supposed to mean? Cryptography is used to protect payments systems as radically different as credit cards, Chaumian digital cash, and Bitcoin. The term encourages the popular but profoundly naive view of Bitcoin as merely another form of digital cash.

Yeah, Atlas is right. These are too cheap. I would buy 3 and put overly comical narcissistic slogans about myself on them.

But this isn't my area :p so I won't get involved or push it

Why should experts be the only people to give Bitcoin talks? Why does every talk need to go into great detail?

Except most of her talk got huge things wrong and made erroneous statements.

I agree with cypherdoc,

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=66174.msg767605#msg767605

We had David Birch at last years European Bitcoin Conference:

http://bitcoinmedia.com/eurobit-david-birch-next-generation-money/

Not sure why Adrianne Jeffries is talking about bitcoin though. She's a journalist, not a payments expert and some of her writings have been wrong or shown a deep lack of understanding about bitcoin and the community.

David Birch is actually a payments consultant for the conventional banking industry. So when you hear him speak, you know this is the current conventional wisdom in those circles.

Se Bitcoin povas fari ion, tio povas alporti esperanto dorso.

"No, I don't really use Bitcoin and I don't mine."

Probably not setting the best example...

{disgustingly ugly but extremely useful}

How is Esperanto 'disgustingly ugly'? Seems a bit extreme.

Kiel Esperanto naŭze malbelas? Sxajnas ekstremete.

I want to make a week long hackathon of intense coding! I mean if all these cool people fly from the US, it would a waste for them not to stick around! Anyway, we'll have to see and this is something I'll try to setup nearer the date in my spare time (not part of the official conference). Maybe we could pool funds together to rent out a hall and throw down sleeping bags or something. I'll also check with LHS once we confirm the date for the conference.

Hows this going? I re-arranged my server and have been to busy coding to play around with the protocol

I think slush doesn't have much time. Anyway, I'll pick up the slack. I'm working off slush's original proposal, but need to make some design decisions in coordination with ThomasV.

I'll only focus on two use-cases:
- Merchants
- Users

We are in London = higher quality conference. That's all that matters to me. Build the highest quality schedule and topics. Bring together the best and brightest.

Our organisation's (Bitcoin Consultancy) mission statement is:
"In April 2011, we formed this consultancy as a collaborative effort to take bitcoin outside the world of tech geeks and hobbyists into the real world."

This conference's mandate is:
"To bring bitcoin to a global financial centre, and be a turning point bringing bitcoin to the fore of the mainstream. It is here that bitcoin will leave its perilous infancy, as the new world briefly meets the old before displacing it."

If you notice the actions of our group, everything is aligned with these statements. From our outreach (Bitcoin Media), to the exchange (Intersango to spread BTC) and our development (libbitcoin to enable people to build lots of bitcoin applications). This conference will be no different, and you will see it designed accordingly. We want to grow bitcoin through the vehicle of this conference. It will be a serious pensive arrangement with deep discussions, not a fun-community weekend piss-up.

London is our avenue for doing that. For building the best conference, we are here and have our support network here. It is where we can best perform. Berlin is foreign unfamiliar non-English speaking territory for us. It's not like to create a conference you just rent out a church hall and throw some plastic chairs in. There is a lot of micromanagement and behind the scenes organisation.

And saying you boycott us until you get a sunnier location of your choosing, when this is our highest quality offering is simply childish and ungrateful. I'm not getting paid working 14 hour days, and the rest of my group is also overworked and underpaid. We are in this because we are lovers of bitcoin (and opensource in my case Smiley). And you want to punish us? Come on, I know you're above that as a human being.

I'm clearly in league Rothschilds, Free Masons and CIA.

So it's not Al Qaeda anymore.

Moving up in the world.
