Great idea I'm in!  Grin

I would like to add there is a website called
http://www.unofficialbtc.com/    maybe they would like to be the "hub" for this just a thought.

My vision for UBTC is a little different than the what's been discussed here so far, but there are some similarities. One of the highest priorities I have for any UBTC related venture is that it showcase the positive aspects of bitcoin, paving the way for other entrepreneurial and altruistic innovators. The planning for the upcoming March convention is going very well and I would be happy to help organize any other large scale bitcoin conferences, be they developer oriented or encompassing contributors with other talents.

Unofficial BTC is definitely aiming for profitability, however, and that alone should disqualify it from representing the Bitcoin community in any court. No, I agree that a not-for-profit foundation is the way to go and that it should focus on being the "Official" Bitcoin Legal Watchdog while leaving the rest of it to other organizations.

i dont believe for a second that any of these guys like women.

Maybe that's how it works - women assume they're gay and let their guard down.

You can use bitcoins without ever installing the client.

I'm hardly ever at home. I've conducted many bitcoin transactions simply by accessing one of my accounts on an exchange or some other site I happen to have some coins temporarily stored, often using my phone. If I ever convince my mom to use BTC, I won't even try to explain the client to her, I'll just open an account for her and send her some.

I've been sitting on this for a while because I haven't wanted to get caught up in any of the currency versus commodity debates going on but I can hold my metaphorical tongue no longer.

Bitcoin shares many of the traits displayed by money, currencies, commodities, stock, credits, and other exchangeable items that economic infrastructures are built around, however, it transcends them.

The synergy Satoshi created by utilizing a hash based proof-of-work system verified by a peer-to-peer network is not adequately described by any of the previous terms in their current incarnations. Consequently, new rules, laws, business etiquette, security measures, etc. will all have to be built from the ground up, free from the old, cumbersome restrictions and antiquated mentalities lingering in this brave, new world.

This manifestation of an intangible, archtypal ideal is giving us glimpses through doors that even the least cynical of us have always believed to be locked. Even if Bitcoin does die, it has opened my eyes to wondrous possibilities that will live at least as long as I do.

And that, my friends, is how Bitcoin won my admiration and continues to enthrall me to this day.
1330  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Bitcoin user Survey on: October 22, 2011, 08:20:23 PM
The question is confusing. Once the average user has bitcoins, they are usually much easier to use than any other type of online payment.

If you think about it, what's required to use USD online? You have to first obtain some in RL, either from an employer or some other source, then you have to open a bank account, deposit your funds, wait for them to clear, apply for credit with a credit card company, wait to be approved, etc. Using bitcoins requires one to go through many of the same steps, the information about how to do it is just not as widely distibuted in our society.
1331  Economy / Services / Re: Selling Advertising to 200,000 + US college Students on: October 22, 2011, 03:16:11 PM
right those are USD prices so it would obviously convert -- when this thread started the price was around 4-5 btc


it also depends the product you are advertising too.



For 3k USD in BTC -- i could get a full page at atleast 20 schools; and depending availability it could go up to 35. Unlikely and would probably be in the 20-25 range but really wont know until last minute.

The product advertised affects the price?

Update:
Tour of the center and hotels went well. I arrived at the agreed upon meeting place in a suit and on time, hopefully defusing any concerns anyone might have had about the types of visitors I was bringing into our fair city. The Hyatt salesperson assured me that their reservations department will have our dedicated URL ready in a couple of days for anyone wishing to make an early reservation (which I highly recommend - remember, the Grand Hyatt has already sold out the night of Friday, March 16th).

The convention center representative also provided this photo of the exhibit hall I currently have on hold:



I think my response was pretty positive too.

You're right, it was and I've added you to the list. My apologies.
1333  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Diaspora accepting Bitcoin donations! on: October 21, 2011, 07:04:06 PM
Is bit-pay involved or are the coins manually withdrawn by diaspora?


Wallet powered by Camp BX  Grin


Nice job!  If they need a more automated solution for tracking and reporting, Bit-Pay can handle that and we will auto-forward the Bitcoins to their CampBX Wallet.


Thank you Tony! 

Agreed: A simple wallet works well in the near term but as Diaspora's Bitcoin revenue stream grows, we can set them up with a more feature-rich solution.

I sincerely hope it's not just you and Atlas xD

Kind of funny, but kind of not, I wonder how many people would not use a venue based on one attendee.

Honestly, I feel there would be a good amount of people who would not support a convention based on something like, let's say Bruce attending.

Quite a few forum members have expressed a desire to attend, sponsor, and/or purchase exhibit space but I'm holding off on listing them until I get firm confirmations, i.e. "I am definitely attending" or actually sending some bitcoins. However, even if only 50% of those I've corresponded with are serious, I think we'll have a really nice turnout. Immanuel/Atlas has just been the only one (so far) to come right out and post such a clear cut affirmative response. It's still early, though, and I haven't really had anything definite to announce, myself, other than a location and dates.

In addition, I think the role of the attendee in question would make a big difference in turnout. I mean, that was the main reason I decided to tackle this monster myself - I believe many would not only avoid a conference Bruce organized, but would actively work against it. On the other hand, if he was just one attendee out of hundreds, present only as a guest, I doubt anyone would intentionally miss out on what could be a great opportunity to interact with all of the other noteworthy people in attendance.

Last chance to join me tomorrow morning for a tour of the hotel and convention center. If you aren't in the area but have a question for me to ask about the lodging or venue, please post it here.

Check back for updates tomorrow afternoon!

It's funny that when I asked for a $100 loan before but gave no explanation, I received several offers.  Now that I say I have an idea, everybody and their grandma is skeptical, people are so quick to judge.

The fundraising step isn't related to seasteading but the funds I raise will be at a later point.  The fundraising step is a simple buy bulk/good deal, sell fast at good deals, Huh, profit, repeat scheme.

The thing is, if all you're planning on doing to raise capital is buy in bulk and resell at a mark-up, someone else is probably already doing it and you haven't given any indication of how you'll "sell fast."
1337  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Article on why bitcoins need to succeed on: October 19, 2011, 08:35:06 PM
agreed,  the problem is someone ask them why they don't take bitcoins, they'll say it's too complicated.....  that's my guess.



I looked at their site and cannot find any way to contact them at all. 

We'd be happy to set them up to accept donations and we'd send the US Dollars into their account the next day.  if anyone has any contacts there, we can reach out to them.

I sent an email with a link to your post and offer.

Update: http://blog.diasporafoundation.org/2011/10/19/how-diaspora-found-its-tiger-stripe-in-the-midst-of-a-paypal-fiasco.html

After a cursory glance at Stripe's front page, I don't see much to differentiate them from Paypal.

With an instawallet account and some btc
But wasn't bitcoin created to avoid maintaining accounts with a third party? If I have to have such an account I'd prefer to have such account with my bank as it is regulated and controlled by a central bank!

I sell coffee for bitcoins everyday with an international sale at least once a week without using a third party.

Attracting and guiding a talented group of individuals toward a specific, unifying goal requires a clear, well-defined vision and a passionate, well respected leader. It's a lot harder than it looks.

If you do realize that you have responsibility to take actions, you don't have to wait for someone... but it's true that you need to see people around you doing the same so you don't feel alone...

Personal example, it's only thing that works...

I am taking actions, I just didn't want to hijack your thread.  Smiley  "Unofficial BTC: Making Bitcoins Profitable Again"
