1301  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / New Bitcoin Weekly T-Shirt Coming Out Soon on: July 11, 2011, 02:26:14 AM
A new Bitcoin Weekly t-shirt will be coming out soon:



These cost 15 dollars each, so it's like 1 BTC at current price. Half of the profit goes back to Bitcoin Weekly to support its mission in creating fabulous magazine. You will be able to buy it at http://squarewear.biz

So... Will you buy this shirt?

When your account get hacked because they added longer timeout period, you will scream bloody murder!
1304  Economy / Economics / Re: Do you hate the State? on: July 10, 2011, 10:03:53 PM
hmm..

Well, I tend to be angered by their inefficiency and general stupidity.

The local utility company for the example don't act like good little capitalists. Instead they have some bureaucratic system just because they're monopolists. They don't care about wanting my money because I need them more than they need me.

Enough said. I registered with their power service only to learn that they need me to come to their local office that I lived here.

I am like "WTF? Why do you care about proof that I live here? All you need to know is that if I paid the power bill..or not."

x) Monetize the web. Put your address at the bottom or your blog posts or youtube videos, and people can pay you a bit if they like your work, without having to go through third parties or paying high percentage fees.

I used Operation Fabulous for advertising. No frill, no fuss. Not the most sophisticated and useful advertising platform on the planet but it's very simple.

Its inspiration, "Project Wonderful" uses paypal but I sweat over the chargeback possibility of paypal. Plus it take them a day to pay me. (Not to mention that you have to be 18 in order to use. I am 20 now so it doesn't apply anymore...)


That what I like about bitcoin: bureaucracy eliminated.

You can build your business outside the regulated market to avoid the hassle. My magazine doesn't care if you're a dog or a 3 years old, you're going to get paid for work you did and upon what we agreed on.

Plus teenagers can engage in commerce as they wishes and how they like. I wish bitcoin is available when I was younger.

My only wishes is that it shouldn't be so much of a hassle to use public cryptography to sign constantly changing employment agreement. (I just switch over to ransom payout instead of a constant paycheck but I have yet to update an employment contract) However, that's not Bitcoin's fault, but the lack of infrastructure for the emerging Bitcoin job market.
1306  Economy / Economics / Re: Why do you use Bitcoin? on: July 10, 2011, 04:08:14 PM
I use it because it is the most damn interesting currency in the world.

Dollars? Golds? Yen? Yuan? They aren't damn interesting at all.
1307  Economy / Speculation / Re: Comparison to Apple (AAPL) shares on: July 10, 2011, 02:33:57 PM
The strategism of Bitcoin is very different from Apple.

It's more like being Android rather than being Apple.

What amuses me is that all the trolling and rebuttal actually help increase traffic for Bitcoin Weekly.  Grin
1309  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Something Awful likes Bitcoin Weekly comics. on: July 09, 2011, 07:29:52 PM
Well, the latest comic is now permanently on the front page.  Grin

Before that, you would need to click on the latest comic link.

Polls are probably inaccurate but it seems like a large portion of this forum is either in high school or in college.

This bodes well for the currency. It means we are not stuck with a bunch of old farts who only care about their social security entitlement and how they are going to retire.
1311  Economy / Speculation / Re: Bitcoin will never reach $20 again on: July 09, 2011, 02:07:03 PM
Considering you are a bitcoin journalist you should be open to diverging views or is BitcoinWeekly the Fox News of bitcoin?

Bitcoin Weekly does not accept mindless drivel in which there is no effort of analysis. Bitcoin Weekly does not publishes news. Bitcoin Weekly does not do "journalism". Bitcoin Weekly does not pretend to be neutral like Fox News pretend to be "fair and balanced".

We just publish interesting essays and funny comics. That is all.
1312  Economy / Speculation / Re: Bitcoin will never reach $20 again on: July 09, 2011, 01:59:59 PM
This thread is worthless.
1313  Economy / Speculation / Re: Bitcoin will never reach $20 again on: July 09, 2011, 01:56:42 PM
BTC Economist: You are a boring troll.


Folks, nothing to see here. Move on.
1314  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: If Bitcoins dropped to $9.50, would you sell everything? on: July 09, 2011, 05:52:03 AM
No, no, and no!  Grin

Doesn't matter how low bitcoin will get. I will never sell.
1315  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Something Awful likes Bitcoin Weekly comics. on: July 09, 2011, 02:58:56 AM

You have a blog, you don't have a magazine.  A tumblr account is not a museum of priceless art even if it is filled with Monet .jpgs

What Bitcoin Weekly does is publish essays and analysis and we publish them when they are ready. There's a deadline but it really means you just need to produce content regularly. We got our own internal commenting system that help with the editing process.

Anything that is time sensitive and newsy tends to be discouraged in favor of articles that you read 30 days from now, six months from now, and years later.
1316  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Something Awful likes Bitcoin Weekly comics. on: July 09, 2011, 02:45:11 AM
Are you on a magazine right now, or are you on a website?

The Economist website is not a magazine?
1317  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Something Awful likes Bitcoin Weekly comics. on: July 09, 2011, 02:25:21 AM
I don't really care what goons think as long as they read my magazine.  Wink

Also, I welcome the modification and photoshopping of bitcoin weekly comics.
1318  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Something Awful likes Bitcoin Weekly comics. on: July 09, 2011, 02:20:51 AM

Where is this wonderful magazine?  How often is it published?

Wow you have 4600 posts on a forum dedicated to pretend internet money. 

How do I get bitcoin capital for my project?  Let me summarize said project:

It's essentially a capitalist version of mass delusion.  You stand in a circle, and you hand money to the person on your left, in the hopes that the person on your right hands more money to you.  There's one or two people in the middle of the circle who take a small amount of money from everyone's hands every time the money goes around.  New people can join by just entering the circle and handing money to the person on their left.  No one will ever leave the circle because they're too proud of this stupid circle and amazed at how the money goes round and round like a NASCAR race.

Meh. It's an illusion that create a whole magazine dedicated to Bitcoin, including Bitcoin comics some of you guys are reading.

Does your "mass delusion" create that?

Something Awful likes Bitcoin Weekly comics so much that they link to it on a bitcoin thread.

Ain't that awesome?
