Just got mine today, smells amazing =) Thanks

Thank you for the referral! Your 15% coupon code has been emailed to you.

I've been procrastinating purchasing coffee based on how high (perhaps unrealistically) I expect BTC to be valued at. I ran out of edd's fantastic beans a few weeks ago and I can't wait any longer -- definitely going to try getting a mate to try this out. The beans are shipped in a very thoughtful quality reclosable airlock bag and the beans are incredibly aromatic and delicious. Edd's care to detail, customer satisfaction, and quality overall is an ideal example of how free markets can self-regulate with everyone involved in the transaction being a winner. I was practically begging the owner to cut me in on the deal a couple months ago I was so excited by what I received and how edd does business. (by the way, that offer's still up!  Tongue  Cheesy )

(but damn - I just realized I purchased back in May -- will that 15%-off coupon ever expire?)

I was planning on setting the coupons to expire at the end of October, but there might be some wiggle room for the temporally challenged.  Wink

Bitcoin really is still in its infancy. Personally, I wouldn't call it stable or successful until I can use it to pay for my mortgage, my utilities, and my groceries. That won't be tomorrow, next month, or even next year, but if my BitBrew sales are any indication, it is on its way there.

You worry too much. State sales tax collectors don't care where the money comes from. I had a small business for ten years and all they ever asked for were the figures. The only agency that might ever want specific information on your customers is some kind of law enforcement agency and they don't require that you collect that kind of information, only that you cooperate if they do need to conduct some kind of investigation. As I said, these are concerns unrelated to bitcoins.
1448  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: BitCoin and Business on: September 04, 2011, 07:03:16 PM
Sorry, just reread your post and saw that you mention reporting it to your state. I assume you're referring to state sales tax? That only has to be collected on goods or services that stay within your home state. I'm not familiar with how it applies to renting servers, but it shouldn't matter if your customers are using bitcoins. If your state requires records of where your customers reside, you'll have to collect that information somehow, you just won't have the convenience of allowing credit card companies and Paypal to do it for you.

In any case, your question is about taxation in general, it doesn't change just because you're accepting BTC.
1449  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: BitCoin and Business on: September 04, 2011, 06:54:09 PM
The IRS (or other government tax collection agency) doesn't care where you got it from, as long as you report it.
1450  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: what is the easiet way to buy bitcoins? on: September 03, 2011, 04:44:35 PM
i saw someone offering bitcoins for 1$ each, how would i buy them from him?

That would be up to the person selling them.

A word of warning: $1 each is too cheap to NOT be a scam.

I was a little surprised that there wasn't at least a small surge in demand for bitcoins after the New York conference, but then I realized, everyone who attended was already immersed in the bitcoin world. After some careful consideration, I realized that, in order for this event to ever be more than a glorified meetup, it needs to be open to the public.

This means that sponsors and vendors will have to pay more, but it also means that they will get greater exposure. It should also encourage bitcoiners to bring their spouses and significant others to the show so that they can see how vibrant and exciting our growing economy really is.

Once I get a website up, I may begin taking donations so that we can even set up a booth at the show to help beginners download the client, set up a wallet, and purchase or trade for their first bitcoin.

Will the atheist pool be open to agnostics as well? Smiley

I'm not sure.

The Atheist Pool might not even exist; then again, it might - there isn't enough evidence one way or the other.

i'd like to see the following speakers:

ALISON


I can make that happen!  She paid for her lunch at Meze Grill with bitcoins, so she's a pro by now!

Now that session would definitely be filled to capacity!
1456  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Input Requested for Possible Bitcoin Convention on: September 01, 2011, 12:49:18 AM
assuming the turnout would be similar to Bitcon, it would be nice to have sessions that everyone could attend instead of breaking up into separate groups depending on an individuals interest.  for instance,  i would have loved to attend a mining session and a merchant session except they were simultaneous at Bitcon.  even though i no nothing about the details of mining, i think we are all intellectually curious enough to want to know whats behind this part of Bitcoin.

you could have a series of 3 experts in each category speak for 30 min followed by a panel discussion of the 3 speakers and a couple of other experts with Q&A.  these sessions would proceed one by one throughout the day with breaks mid morning, lunch, and mid afternoon of 45 min so that attendees could visit vendor displays in the next room.

i would love to see all the vendors out there bring their products and devices to the conference for attendees to touch and feel.  they should have internet hookups to demo their websites if they don't have a physical product to display.  programs with descriptions of speakers, panel discussants, and vendors would be nice but an extra expense.

anyways, i'm describing my own personal professional conferences which i would love for Bitcoin to be able to reach in the near future.  good luck.

I completely agree, cypherdoc. I think even the speakers would appreciate the opportunity to listen to one another instead of missing out on everything that happens to be going on while they're addressing an audience.

I am hoping to record and stream all sessions, maybe even strategically placing some monitors around the vendor areas so that attendees won't have to squeeze into a meeting room that might be too small due to an overly conservative estimate of interest.

I think an online program would be a reasonable expectation for an event like this, not to mention being more environmentally friendly and cost effective than a printed one.

Sessions and panels will have to be tailored to the experts, of course. Responses to the emails and PMs I've been sending have been very positive, though.

Satoshi

I'll send him a PM.

I'd love to see the big players pitch the future of what their services will look like, and some big new services and features revealed.

Who do you consider "big players"?
1459  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Input Requested for Possible Bitcoin Convention on: August 31, 2011, 07:38:22 PM
I guess I shouldn't have been surprised that everyone has an opinion about where a bitcoin convention should be, especially with all the recent drama, but I was really hoping for some more constructive suggestions.

Once more: Other than location, what / who does the next Bitcoin Convention need?
1460  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Input Requested for Possible Bitcoin Convention on: August 31, 2011, 06:02:45 PM
I've begun contacting some of the more prominent members of the bitcoin community about participating in this event but I'd like everyone's feedback:

Who do you want to see at a Bitcoin Convention?
