There is no interest in this magazine?

I suspect Bitcoin Weekly does not have many fans.

I see that we only received 1 bitcents in the last 24ish hours so far. If 49 people donate 1 bitcents, than we will reach our goal of .50 BTC.

I made two minor improvement to the comic navigation system:

1. Made it bigger for people to see.
2. Place them on both the top and bottom of the comic.

Suffice to say, the navigation system still needs lot of work. There should be a way to get a list of all the comics ever published and the navigation button still needs to be more noticeable, for example.

Just to be clear, you mean that the next article for Bitcoin Weekly has already been written, and will be published once your donations to that address exceed 0.50 BTC?  Sounds like a reasonable model to me so long as your site is able to keep people's attention from publication to publication.  (Didn't you do the same thing back when you first started?)

Yes, the article is already written and this is our first experiment in ransom in the three iterations of the publication.

Just to be clear, Vitalik Buterin is one of our finest writer and is behind the article that's being ransomed.

Here are some of his articles:

Bitcoin and the Goldbug

The Wasted Electricity Objection to Bitcoin Part 2

The Global Bitcoin Stock Exchange and Why It Matters

In addition, Bitcoin Weekly is trying an experiment at http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=20235.0

Please support us in this hard time.

Bitcoin Weekly is ransoming the article Bitcoin for Individual-to-Individual Transactions and Community Trade by Vitalik Buterin for .50 BTC in a business model experiment. This is because the magazine have trouble raising enough revenues via publishing advertising to pay current expense, in the form of writers and cartoonists.

Donate .50 BTC to this address 1JYXS3dpHjk9MT7U6oXNKwfVeubW41iWkf

Time period and method for consideration of publication:

It will be checked via http://blockexplorer.com/address/1JYXS3dpHjk9MT7U6oXNKwfVeubW41iWkf

For me, If it is found to exceed or meet .50 BTC in the time period of 7:30 AM to 8:30 AM(time before I work), I will publish this article.

For the author of said ransomed article, if it is found to exceed or meet .50 BTC, he is authorized to publish it.

It will continues to be checked until .50 BTC are donated.

Implication for Success of Experiment:

If successful, then it will be on my agenda to start development of a fully automated ransoming system right after the completion of the comics section and the news service.

Also, donating to ransoms will be more attractive in the future.There may be discounts and prizes for donating certain level of bitcoin to the magazine. For now, I need to do this experiment to validates the business model and save Bitcoin Weekly from insolvency.

If you love Bitcoin Weekly's works and would like Bitcoin Weekly to continues publication, please consider a token donation.

Thanks in advance, for all your support and business.

Yeah, I got that same email. Knew that it was trojan and reported it as spam. I came here to alert other users but the OP got there first.

When you try to exterminate politics and other sections, you are trying to exterminate and make the bitcoin culture unoffensive and suitable to the masses.

Yeah, that's exactly what we want to do. Don't you want the masses to use Bitcoin?

I prefer to build a solid community that support bitcoin, which will help bitcoin retain its value. Masses of people who don't care about bitcoin is not the way to go.

Eventually, bitcoin usage will goes mainstream as the bitcoin economy become more attractive.

Meh. I will ride bitcoin till the end.

Beside, all the crazy up and down made me a "meh" person.
1433  Other / Meta / Re: Kill the Politics forum on: June 19, 2011, 06:53:42 PM
You guys don't get. Bitcoin is its own subculture, with its social mores and institution. We are merchants, buyers, and sellers in this particular world we called the Bitcoin community.

When you try to exterminate politics and other sections, you are trying to exterminate and make the bitcoin culture unoffensive and suitable to the masses. The early adopters were never the masses of the US, the republicans or the democrats. Then we become dull and uninteresting because now the culture suits the masses. That kill the specialness and uniqueness of the bitcoin community.

The early adopters bring a kind of knowledge and wisdom that's not available to newbies, in additional to the political yuckiness. They teaches in debate and they run businesses, startup, and experiments within the bitcoin economy. Then they are gone, their knowledge not accessible to newbies because they are on some other obscure forum somewhere after being censored.

There are those who wishes to ban the yuckiness of the forum, but they also ban the pioneers who settle this town when bitcoin is still(and still is) a yucky concept.

Bitcoin Weekly will be running a pilot program later this week with ransoming articles so that we can continue brining more awesome content to you.

Circuit breakers are only possible with centralized control.

Yeah. New markets will just pop up. The idea of close time for markets just never make sense to me.
