Hi, I would like to do an interview with CoinDL for bitcoinweekly.com

This is a really lame thread. You guys already decided he's guilty and not guilty before we even have a trial.

I don't understand this moonspeak.

Let the court decide whether or not the he's guilty. Everything else is just mad and wild speculation.
845  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: More ideas than capital on: June 12, 2012, 01:18:06 AM
Here's my conundrum. I have all these ideas for Bitcoin based businesses, but neither the programming skills, nor the cash to hire programmers. What I can do is create a skeleton type website (like the one below) with basic web 1.0 skills, but right now I don't want a bunch of crappy looking websites. I am thinking of hiring filipino web developers, that would at least get me started, but even that can get expensive. I can create a GLBSE IPO or several and get funds for programmers for each site or several at once. Some of the websites will be moneymakers, some are just plain needed and may or may not make money. So should I just build crappy websites and build them slowly as I can afford, or should I look for investors?


Twitter bootstrap is your friend if you want pretty-by-default websites.
846  Bitcoin / Press / Re: 2012-06-11 businessinsider.com - And Now Europeans Are Dumping Euros For Bitcoin on: June 11, 2012, 11:48:17 PM
Yeah. I call BS on that too.

BTC is a game. EUR is established.

Would be dumb trading the crappy EUR for an even crappier BTC. It's like jumping from a tower.

BTC is riskiest asset ever. EUR not so much.

Euro is now the second most traded currency on bitcoin exchanges. You may think bitcoin is a game, but apparently those Europeans don't.

Consider how Meze Grill, probably the best known retail merchant to accept bitcoin, didn't even have enough customers wishing to pay using bitcoins that they bothered to reinstate a method to accept bitcoins following the MyBitcoin mess.  The staff at Whiskey Dicks, the only restaurant in Florida to advertise that they accept bitcoins, doesn't know how to accept bitcoin for payment and can do so only when the owner is around.
Don't you mean, "never bothered to reinstate a method to accept bitcoins following the MyBitcoin mess"?

Quote
A merchant isn't likely to look into adding bitcoins as a payment method until there are guarantees, such as those that come from the business' customers asking if they can pay using bitcoins.  In a normal cross section of the population, there generally just isn't a concentration of bitcoiners sufficient to justify the expense to accept bitcoin (in terms of hardware but also for time to train staff, etc.).

Which is why it's a good idea to concentrate bitcoiners if possible.
848  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bitcoin Weekly will be coming back on: June 10, 2012, 08:11:33 PM
http://bitcoinweekly.com will be coming back soon! I will start publishing essay and analysis. Right now, the site is now revamped with a more minimalist style using twitter bootstrap and the writing system is up and running. Unlike our competitor at bitcoinmagazine.net, the content don't start halfway down the screen. There are no urgency to sign up on the emailing list, follow us buttons for the various social networks, people bragging about how many points they earn from the magazine, or any of that nonsense. We have a simple header with navigation list.....and the content(Random articles, comment section, ads, and the footer). Everything that is distracting is down at the bottom.

Crowdfunding will be the mainstay of bitcoinweekly business model as it used to be before. Essentially, bitcoinweekly will release new contents for a collective fee. You can contribute as much as you want and as little as you want, as long all the donations added up to what bitcoinweekly is looking for.

However, there are some issues: I don't have any money to hire writers/reviewers. Thus, I lack both manpower and writing expertise. For now, I have to do everything myself, unless some people are generous enough to assists in editorial reviews. Even more, I don't have any ideas on what to write about. If you have any ideas that you would want me to write about, let me know.

Authorization not done yet. Working on an article.

Bug reports, feature suggestions, etc very welcome!

I asked about possible freelance work and the technology stack that you are using a little while ago. Will you reply?
851  Bitcoin / Project Development / Bitcoin Weekly development thread on: June 10, 2012, 08:28:37 AM
http://bitcoinweekly.com is refreshed with twitter bootstrap, now with more minimalism than ever before. Nonworking navigation links are also pruned. The comic section disappears.

Stay tuned for more tweaks and development.
852  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Do you prefer the new logo or the old logo? on: June 09, 2012, 03:36:59 PM
There is no "new" or "old" or "official" bitcoin logo.
853  Economy / Service Announcements / Re: [ANN] LocalBitcoins.com - a location-based bitcoin to cash marketplace on: June 07, 2012, 04:33:24 PM
Yeah, it is twitter bootstrapped. What do you have in mind?

Just some small things. It could be google map, statistics, or graphs, or all the above.

What is your technology stack?
854  Economy / Service Announcements / Re: [ANN] LocalBitcoins.com - a location-based bitcoin to cash marketplace on: June 07, 2012, 09:24:53 AM
Looks like it's twitter bootstrapped. Also, any chance of being able to work on your site in exchange for some bitcoin?
855  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: Rugatu Q&A, can you help us test the service ? on: June 05, 2012, 06:51:31 PM
It looks like stackoverflow.
856  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: New gambling site coming soon on: June 05, 2012, 12:00:42 AM
This is one that I have been wanting to make for a long time, it's simple, fun and good returns!

In order for gambling to have good return for players, the house will have to lose! Beside, I don't see how adding a gambling service add much to the bitcoin economy.
857  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: New gambling site coming soon on: June 04, 2012, 08:55:04 PM
How many god damn gambling sites you guys have to produce?
858  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: [Announce] Bitquestion - bitcoin powered questions and answers on: June 04, 2012, 07:19:39 PM
I agree the splash page could get anoying after a while. But for people that *never* went into the site, if could be a good idea, don't you think ? It's a quick way to understand what the site is about within 10 seconds. I'll carry out a change that only displays the splash for fresh users. Do you think that would fully address this problem ?

It's called data, my friend. Let data decides, not what you conjecture.

Do A/B testing or soemthing.
859  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: Something better than Operation Fabulous? on: May 30, 2012, 06:56:18 PM

Ok well if you do think of something let me know as I'm all ears for suggestions and areas of improvement.

Better handling of your customers. Don't be the google adsense of the bitcoin economy.
860  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: Something better than Operation Fabulous? on: May 30, 2012, 06:42:30 PM

Is this announced anywhere?

No. BioMike told me when I was asking for more work.
