Who said so? I basically disagree with your post.

While it may be argued that quantitatively, running and using services that accept Bitcoin payments is more effective than donations, donations serve multiple purposes.

Yes. The EFF accepting bitcoin (for a while) brought us publicity. Eventually, this lead to additional bitcoin business poping up.

Would it be ok for you to have a kind of "sub fund" on GLBSE?

I could imagine opening a ticker there with, let's say, 5000 shares @ 0.1 BTC each and then investing the 500 BTC from the IPO to your fund. Dividends/profits I receive from you would then be spread back via GLBSE to share holders. This would enable users to buy small quantities of this fund to gain trust and keep their risks low as well as relieving you from micromanaging tiny/small accounts.

I personally would keep ~1% of the earnings to make up in time for the 8 BTC that a ticker symbol costs and my time that I invest each week for that. 1% is low enough to have hourly rates that would make someone from a third world country laugh probably, but I see it rather as a hobby than a way to earn serious money anyways. Of course I'd publish a balance sheet and stuff, but I would not verify with GLBSE (I don't like the idea of having my name and address on a HDD in the UK, encrypted or not...). Maybe someone else would do it for less? Wink

The only problem I see is with people wanting to cash out on the fund, as it seems there are no real dividends and one rather has to withdraw funds to get money.
I might need to cash out every week or month, distribute dividends and immediately invest the 500 BTC again. This might be disruptive to your operations though, so it's your call on that...

Sounds like a job for.....a computer program.

Cool, you're the last guy standing.

What do you think of hiring developers to do smallish feature for your service?
904  Economy / Securities / Re: [Investment fund] Gamma Bitcoin Fund on: April 14, 2012, 02:35:36 PM
Skeptical of investment scheme. Only trust index funds because managers usually never beat out the average in the long run.

In any case, I want to invest 1 BTC just to see what happen.

What does this have to do with bitcoin?
906  Economy / Services / Re: [Coder for hire] Ruby, Rails, Javascript/Coffeescript, Canvas + processing.js on: April 13, 2012, 07:32:56 AM
btcpak is quite simple,

make address,receive coins, show code.

btcpak.com is good, but moneypak is limited in USA

I don't know how hard it will be for me to do it. Doesn't seems hard, but simple sounding can be deceptive. If you're really interested in paying some BTC for such a site, let me know via email.
907  Economy / Services / Re: [Coder for hire] Ruby, Rails, Javascript/Coffeescript, Canvas + processing.js on: April 13, 2012, 04:06:16 AM
Can you build a site like BTCPak.com ?  
How much will it cost ?

I probably could build something like btcpak, but it won't be as good or as useful and will cost you a pretty penny. I suggest that you shouldn't ask people to clone site and instead try to distinguish yourself from whatever btcpak does or find an area that are under-serviced.

I also have no experience yet in dealing and interfacing with a bitcoin daemon or bitcoin/traditional financial system yet.

bump again. I guess there's nobody in the bitcoin economy that need my service.
909  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: [Announcement] Potential Games - Bitcoin Initiative! on: April 11, 2012, 05:51:09 AM
Hobbyist game developer here. I have some experience with trying raise BTC for game development. That being said, it does not goes well with the bitcoin community, or rather any community if you don't have a compelling demo.

Failed to reach my 300 dollars worth of bitcoin during March. Ran out of motiviation-fuel for the moment to continue my project and now I need money-fuel. So I am trying to freelance in the bitcoin community when possible, but it does not look good when every lead I follow end up with no project on my desk.

* kiba sighs

That being said, I don't plan to give up on my dream of fundraising money for my game and make it go for it, fulltime.
910  Economy / Services / Re: [Coder for hire] Ruby, Rails, Javascript/Coffeescript, Canvas + processing.js on: April 11, 2012, 05:41:01 AM
Bumpy bump. Still no taker.

If you want to help the site buying something is a good start. Even better is to mention coinDL to a friend that you've got on IM or the phone and buy something for them while they watch (they can IM or email you the address and amount and the process should work just as fast).

-weex

In all seriousness, is email a horrible way for you to interact with you? I am still waiting for your response. Don't have any digital goods I can sell on the site, but I can code.
912  Economy / Service Announcements / Re: [Announce] Coindl.com - a new digital downloads marketplace powered by Bitcoin on: April 10, 2012, 10:33:39 PM
This is going to be a chicken and egg problem, that will only slowly gain traction. 

That's the whole issue of the bitcoin economy. We gottach keep existing business alive, keep new business going in, minimize business shutting down.

Slow growth until we hit the sweet spot when everthing goes BLAM!

In the meantime, bitcoiners ought to be patience and keep the light on.

I haven't really followed the story very closely.  Can someone give a quick update on how this has turned into a race issue?

I think some racists are taking advantage of the situation and turning it into a race issue.
914  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Encourage George Zimmerman (Florida self-defense shooting victim) to accept BTC on: April 10, 2012, 06:53:37 PM
You realize that that does not apply in the USA anymore, right? Roll Eyes It is such a police state these days, and I have my doubts that a single TSA agent or police officer has ever read the Constitution or its amendments.

The constitution isn't just  the paper and its amendments, but a whole set of precedent and interpretation applied to them. The court is really the only thing that prevent the USA from turning outright into a mob ruled government. You may even say that it's probably the only reason why the US government have any legitimacy.
915  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Encourage George Zimmerman (Florida self-defense shooting victim) to accept BTC on: April 10, 2012, 05:40:06 PM
Donating to the EFF was a publicity booster.

Tell me how would this boost bitcoin into the media?
916  Economy / Service Announcements / Re: [Announce] Coindl.com - a new digital downloads marketplace powered by Bitcoin on: April 10, 2012, 01:36:43 AM
weex: do you check your email regularly? Or do I have to pester you everytime?

I politely waited a day before pestering you.
917  Economy / Service Announcements / Re: [Announce] Coindl.com - a new digital downloads marketplace powered by Bitcoin on: April 08, 2012, 04:11:22 PM
Weex, I contact you via email. Was wondering if you're going to reply to my solicitation about possible project?
918  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Tomasz Kaye will make a Bitcoin Video on: April 08, 2012, 05:48:06 AM
Don't we have an awesome video already at http://weusecoins.com?
919  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Tomasz Kaye will make a Bitcoin Video on: April 08, 2012, 05:21:26 AM
Unintelligible drivel. 'Prove people are asshats?' That's clearly asinine. Congratulations asshat, your IQ qualifies you for inclusion on my ignore list!

And you're on my ignore list for being an idiot and polluting this thread with rationally unjustifable opinion and then not admitting your mistake like a true rationalist.
920  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Tomasz Kaye will make a Bitcoin Video on: April 08, 2012, 05:12:17 AM
The reason I gave you is that targeting asshats as a focus audience is bad for bitcoin's image in the broader community. Most people strongly dislike asshats. It is not just me.

You said that they are asshats. You have yet to prove that this isn't yet another hatred of tribes that you disapprove of. Face it, politics is tribal, not rational.
