The population will screams "ABUSE" at any smell of censorship, no matter how well intentioned. I am sorry, you're going to have to start a new forum to compete with bitcointalk.

Roger, talk to us about how you advertised the meetings and how you attracted so many interested investors.

I'm not the organizer,  and I don't know the details of how the meetings are advertised.

There are several Japanese guys that organize investment/business clubs or organizations of some sort.
They are organizing everything and just have me helping explain Bitcoin.
I think their primary interest is making money through investing,  and after hearing about Bitcoin,  they see the potential.
I'm careful to explain that in several years, one bitcoin will likely be worth a lot of money or nothing at all,  and almost certainly not what they are worth today.
I think we may see some Japanese businesses starting to use Bitcoin by 2013.



Did that get explained to the audience as well? It wasn't just all hype is it?

I don't have anything of value worth ransoming. I am going to disable the system on kibabase.com until I build up a few worthy articles to advertise to the world.

It is up to the banks if bitcoin is a threat or an opportunity to crush other bankers.

...Bitcoin world domination!
546  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: What's your Aim? on: August 23, 2012, 02:39:09 PM
Goal?

Enable bitcoin to dominate the world.
547  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: Ransoming Business Model on: August 22, 2012, 10:17:10 PM
Great idea. Related sites like this?

As far as I know, nobody actually use the business model the way I implemented it.
548  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: Ransoming Business Model on: August 21, 2012, 11:15:18 PM
Bump down the price to 0.01 BTC each article.

Next, I am going to work on articles that are interesting so that somebody will donate an actual bitcent.
549  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: Ransoming Business Model on: August 21, 2012, 06:20:11 AM
It appears that nobody wants to donate even 1 bitcent.

I know content might be a problem, but they are not even worth 1 bitcent? Not even 1 bitcent to test out the ransoming system?

If you have reluctance to donate, please let me know.
550  Bitcoin / Press / Re: 2012-08-20 forbes.com 'WikiLeaks Bypasses Financial Blockade With Bitcoin' on: August 21, 2012, 03:18:18 AM
WikiLeaks' decision to accept bitcoin seems to be the reason Satoshi left the project when he did. This is his penultimate post:

It would have been nice to get this attention in any other context.  WikiLeaks has kicked the hornet's nest, and the swarm is headed towards us.

Only four months later, Gavin announces he's visiting the CIA. Do you think Satoshi was pissed at WikiLeaks?

That's just pure speculation.
551  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: Ransoming Business Model on: August 20, 2012, 08:18:09 PM

I guess the system makes sense and just needs clearer words. I think most people would thing that if the send .01 the first thing would open up. Wait, is it like that? Or is it only both at .06?

Only both at 0.06 BTC.
552  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: Ransoming Business Model on: August 20, 2012, 08:00:10 PM
It's not very clear, since we already have access to both. Also there is one address for the two things, how to choose? What happens if .05 are sent?

Seems like it should be an address per item.

You have access to old versions, but not new versions. In the action column, it indicates the type of changes. An update means the content has changed in some ways. However, there's currently no way to indicate changes. Like I said in a previous post, Notes and Thoughts contains new notes on the American medical system through the perspective of Kiba as a patient, and book reviews note for each books that kiba recently completed. The changes in Why I Unlicense is merely a minor correction, so it only get 0.01 BTC.

The way donation works right now is that you donate to reach a certain funding goal(in our case, the grand total of 0.06 bitcoin), then all the content ransomed is released. If I have to make a new address for each item, it will mean I have to input more addresses, which is a kind of pain without automation.
553  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: Ransoming Business Model on: August 20, 2012, 07:30:43 PM
Sorry, it was more like a command "Hey someone! Write a story!"

Unless you mean "find it in myself and let it pour out" in which case... don't hold your breath.

I noticed an article not too long ago about how to make a living from your writing and it details something like that.

Anyway, I encourage people to visit http://kibabase.com and donate some bitcents and help test out the system. The price total is only 0.06 BTC!
554  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: Ransoming Business Model on: August 20, 2012, 07:38:31 AM
Someone write a decent story and make one word appear for each .001 that hits an address. I'm thinking any payment makes more visible for everyone.

Build the framework I guess, would be very cool. Let author upload text, bitcoin address, price per word (character?) and mark how much we get for free (need a teaser).

Show browsers however much of each story is paid for and tell them how much per word and to completion.

Let me know if you find the story. I would like to include it in my Notes and Thoughts somewhere.

Nope, that's different.
556  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: Ransoming Business Model on: August 20, 2012, 07:08:03 AM

How about ransoming off the code

I don't have any interesting/useful code to ransom at the moment.
557  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: Ransoming Business Model on: August 20, 2012, 06:51:36 AM
I worked out some of the bugs and finally have some content ready to ransom as a test. Also, I added the ability to customize pricing.

Here are some of the articles ransomed:

Notes and Thoughts is basically a collection of random thought and notes that may or may not be interesting. I documented my experience with the American medical system and wrote a short one paragraph summary of books I read recently. It's priced at 0.05 BTC.

Why I Unlicense is my essay on why I chose the public domain. It's priced at 0.01 BTC because the changes is really minor.

Why should you donate some bitcoin? Think of it as a donation to test out an interesting idea. Please note the balance do not yet update automatically.

I demand that this thread be moved out of press section as it does not have bitcoin as a keyword mentioned.

No mentions of bitcoin.
