I assume you guys have seen these videos...?

But I just discovered them.     Pretty awesome stuff.       It's inspiring an interest in economics for me....  which I've never had.    Ever.

Exactly.   Just enter my zip code - which is also the zip code of the store - 10019.

Maybe also an option to terminate old accounts (that you forgot about).

Or even an option to...  "Merge Accounts".....  ?
367  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / MyBitcoin: Email me a Monthly Statement on: December 15, 2010, 08:35:46 PM
Because I can see a potential problem...   FORGETTING that you even HAVE created some alternate MyBitcoin account...  (It's so easy to create one... then promptly forget that you created it!)

My Suggestion for a Solution:

_______________

I think there should be a Setting that offers to:

   "Email a Monthly Statement to Me"

And the default setting should be ON.


Optionally, for security / privacy concerns, there could be a Sub-Setting under that:

   "Email My Statement"

     ~~or~~

   "Email a Link to My Statement"     


Thoughts?

We're contemplating a point of sale solution for bitcoin.

The issue we're concerned about is transaction processing time.   

If a bitcoin app was running on a smartphone,  how long would the transaction typically take to post  to a coffee shop's bitcoin application?

Obviously, we cannot wait an hour for the transaction to post in order to get our cafe latte.

I'd be interested in knowing what the absolute fastest legislative reaction to an invention ever was. I'm guessing like 3 years. They don't have a chance at beating this imo.

It's Wikileaks.  

Congress is already proposing new legislation to make it illegal to publish such leaks (since, currently, there are no laws against what Assange has done).   ...even though The New York Times actually has published MORE than the Wikileaks site did.    This is a total assault on Free Speech, Journalism, and Freedom, in the USA.

Also, the federal government is trying to impose new regulations on federal EMPLOYEES against even READING such web sites.  Under the proposed new regulations, if a federal employee even READS such a web site, he will be fired.

My Theory:   It's not the cables that the government is worried about.  No.  Not at all.  I think they are worried about the Bank of America documents, and documents of other corporations... that have NOT YET been published by Wikileaks.    They are terrified of the secrets of the world bankers getting out...

I want to be clear...   I totally support Wikileaks and what it stands for -- free speech, transparency of governments, exposing the conspiracy and tyranny of the world central bankers and global corporations.  

I just don't know about painting a target on the back of Bitcoin.   Also, I don't see any real important benefit to Wikileaks... in accepting Bitcoin.   (Although, of course, anyone could set up a Wikileaks Bitcoin Account which would promise to later mail all collected funds to Wikileaks by postal mail.)

For anyone who really cares about helping Wikileaks, forget about Bitcoin...  It seems to me that much more beneficial contributions would be to:

  • host another mirror of the wikileaks site (if you are aware of the risks and not afraid of the possible consequences)
  • seed wikileaks data torrents (if you are aware of the risks and not afraid of the possible consequences)
  • host a site that maintains a list of all wikileaks (& mirror sites) domains and IP addresses; and other leaks sites; and other donation options

Just some thoughts...

I was just going to ask...  is the bitcoin app designed to allow an upgrade in the hashing algorithm?   And, yes, what would happen to the blockchain?

It's all in the title of the article.

Many people only read the title of the article.

The article clearly linked Wikileaks to Bitcoin.

 And how are they linked?

 In reality, they are not linked in any way.

@Shadow Thanks.  I host a talk show.  In fact, we'll be ramping it up to be broadcast on the internet soon.  I'll post to let you all know as soon as it's online.

I recommend adding this to your forum signature....


    ( alternate bitcoin forums: http://bitcoinme.comhttp://bitcoin.inhttp://goo.gl/bzze1 )


...so everyone knows that there is more than ONE bitcoin forum on the internet.

MY LETTER TO THE AUTHOR OF THE ARTICLE:   ( <keir@keirthomas.com>  author of   goo.gl/n0UQt )

I appreciate PC World finally doing an article about the most revolutionary and amazing new technology of the 21st Century so far --- Bitcoin.

However, this really is lazy journalism.

The article implies that Bitcoin was invented as a RESULT of Wikileaks troubles...  as sort of an altrernate SOLUTION to Wikileaks donation funding troubles.

That is NOT TRUE.

The truth is:  Most "Bitcoin.org Forum" members want no association with Wikileaks whatsoever.

The Creator of Bitcoin, Satoshi, has even made a public plea to Wikileaks NOT to accept donations via Bitcoin.

The truth is quite the opposite from the impression that this story leaves.

Most in the Bitcoin Community do NOT want Bitcoin to be associated with Wikileaks in any way.

That's good to hear.  Smiley

 It would be nice if he could read a wrecked the page to a down for maintenance page.

( I love android voice to text. That mistake was so cute I thought I'd leave it in. Smiley  )
377  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: Wikileaks contact info? on: December 11, 2010, 06:56:03 PM
I guess it's too late now. 

 The words bitcoin and wikileaks have appeared in the same headline in pc world just now.

 Search google news for the word bitcoin now.
378  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Yes, the Bitcoin.org Site and Forum were Down on: December 11, 2010, 06:09:31 PM
Has anyone yet figured out why it is going down?

 No one seems to even know who runs this site!?   Huh

Starting today, I will be double-posting every comment I post, on both this forum and the bitcoinme.com forum.   If I have time, I'll post it on the other 2 forums as well.... bitcoin.in and the Google Groups Bitcoin group.  

 We need our forums of communication to be decentralized as well.

Last Night in New York

About The World's First International Bitcoin Meet-up held here in NYC last night: I will have to formulate a way to express what happened in detail. Next time, you must all attend via Skype. We decided that we should probably split the Meet-up into 2 regular Meet-ups -- one for developers & one for new users and merchants (sort of a support group for them). :-) We had the most amazing brainstorming session ever! One new attendee is a top shelf developer, and start-up entrepreneur. We came up with some AMAZING ideas -- many building on previous ideas, which we laid out as projects. We prioritized them. And we even passed out assignments, and are beginning WORK on them TODAY. I'll have to write the whole thing out in a more clear format, but TRUST ME... It is EXCITING. It is MAJOR. :-)  

Meet-ups Elsewhere in the World

Email me the date, time, and location.  That way I can add your Meet-up to the Meetup.com site.  You will get people coming because they found out about it on the Meetup.com site.  We did!   ...an amazing developer who will be a PROFOUND benefactor to the entire Bitcoin Community.  He'd never had time to check out the forum, although he discovered Bitcoin two weeks ago....   He was on Meetup.com and spotted the Bitcoin LOGO on a listing off to the side!

Email me your dates & cities -- even if you're planning a one time only meeting!   email@BitcoinMe.com

Sounds like another use for a tip jar Smiley

Exactly.  Is it possible to enter some text on your ChatRoulette profile page or something...?   Where you could post your Tip Jar Bitcoin Address...?

I just now added ChatRoulette to the http://bitcoinpromote.com page.   

Keep those suggested ideas for sites / merchants / organizations which should accept Bitcoin coming!  Also, you can help out by emailing me with more details to fill out the "details fields" that are missing information too.   Thanks!
