If you look at the distribution of current bitcoin nodes, a huge proportion are already in the US.

So I vote for anywhere outside the US as a conference location.

That makes no sense.   I think one more, large event, sponsored by a few sponsors getting together rather than one head behind it all, in the US.    Bitcoin users should think logically and realistically about it's users who are most likely already financially invested in BTC itself, and determine the meeting place based on a location that offers cheap air fares and hotel rates.   Better organization, rooms in bulk deals, I know there has to be a few people with con and expo experience to get behind the next event.

This is why I like San Antonio. I have five years of experience working with these types of events and have lived here my entire life, so I have a lot of contacts. Our convention center has more than 1.3 million square feet of usable space and is within walking distance of dozens of hotels, the newest of which is right next door with 1000 sleeping rooms. The convention center also has:

67 meeting rooms
4 exhibit halls with over 440,000 square feet of contiguous exhibit space
3 elegant ballrooms including Ballroom C with approximately 40,000 sq. ft.
Full service UPS Business Center
36 loading docks, including 24 covered docks

Not to mention the Alamo, the Riverwalk, all the great shopping, the restaurants, and the many theme and amusement parks, including the world's largest SeaWorld.

Hmmm, looks like March 4, 5, and 6, of 2012 might be a good time, right after FIRST has their robotics competition (March 1st, 2nd, and 3rd). The weather will be great at that time, too. Let me see what kind of room rates are available.


In any case, how does March 2012 sound to everyone?

There will have to be a certain minimum amount of information provided: Category, Title, Author

Will they all be brand new? If not, then you'll have to include the condition of the book.

You'll post images, like all the other products, right? Otherwise, you'll have to say if it's paperback, hardback, etc.

But not Pakistan.


Shouldn't that be a reason for you to want it IN the US? A lot more people would be able to attend if it doesn't cost them quite as much money.

That's why I think Chicago and Austin would be good fits - they're centrally located in the US, almost equidistant from the east and west coasts. I'm also going to throw in my own preference, San Antonio, Texas for the same reason (I also happen to call it "home" Wink ).

But really, location is the last thing to decide upon. In the end, I'd conduct a poll, take the top ten choices and see who could provide the best venue at the best price over the chosen dates.

What else do you look for in a Bitcoin Convention?

Jon has been a great supporter of BitBrew, so I named a blend after his site and started a new Round to celebrate. Enjoy!
1465  Economy / Goods / Re: BitBrew Promotion! on: August 31, 2011, 12:42:53 AM
After much consideration, Iíve decided to bestow the highest BitBrew honor upon one of my favorite Bitcoin related sites.

Introducing The Bitcoinduit Blend!
 
BitBrewís roaster has taken a selection of high quality beans from Colombia, Panama, and Brazil to create a blend worthy of the BitBrew and Bitcoinduit names.
 
Iíve also created a special Round to celebrate this joyous occasion: The BitBrew-Bitcoinduit Round.
 
I canít think of a better way to spend all those extra bitcoins youíve won.

Bumping once just in case this got overlooked with all the current drama.
1467  Other / Off-topic / Re: Two interesting emails I received today... on: August 30, 2011, 05:47:59 PM
When I was 17 I started dating a 16 year old girl. When I was 18 and she was 17 we were still dating and having sex. It was my first important relation and one that me (and I believe her as well) will remember forever. Under USA law I would have been a criminal. Its stupid to ruin first relationships and put pressure on teens because of stupid laws.

I believe there is an exception if the age difference is less than two years.

As a high-ranking Pastafarian, I may have to excommunicate you for that.
Have you been touched yet??

You could say that.

And you misspelled it AGAIN!

That one was deleted by DiabloD3.

Really? The whole thread? Any reason given?

This was the reason for it being reported:

"This thread is beyond out of the bounds for the mining forum"

I can't remember exactly what the thread said, only glanced at it once as I was a little busy with work when I saw the email.  It was already gone when I went to look back over it some more.

Well, after the first few replies it did veer into a religious vs. atheist/agnostic debate, but I would have thought that a more appropriate response would have been to move, not delete it.

1472  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Assistance Needed for 2012 Bitcoin Convention - San Antonio, Texas on: August 30, 2011, 10:44:06 AM
I have some experience organizing conferences, conventions, etc. and had considered putting together an alternate event for 2012, but since Bruce had several already in the works, I didn't think another one would be very productive or succesful. Now, however, it seems our community might benefit from one after all.

Let me say right off that I think the New York event was a huge success. These things usually require months and months of planning, firm commitments from vendors, sponsors, and attendees, and a small army of volunteers. For everything to go as smoothly as it seemed to (I was not able to attend) is a testament to everyone involved.

So, here are my questions for you:

When would you like the next Bitcoin Convention to be held?

Where?

What would you like to do at this event (workshops, networking, seminars, panels)?

How long should it last?

How far in advance would you be willing to purchase?

Would you be willing to sponsor or donate to provide an even more worthwhile experience for everyone?

Any other suggestions or recommendations. (I'm already assuming wireless internet for all and live coverage are necessities.)

Thanks guys.

Remember, you only need to convince one of your friends to try BitBrew to get your 15% discount!

Nefario started a thread on this a couple of weeks ago: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=37433.0
1475  Economy / Goods / BitBrew Promotion! on: August 29, 2011, 05:28:29 PM
First off, let me say thanks to everyone who has purchased coffee or tea from BitBrew. Many of you have had very kind words to say about the site, the product, and, most surprisingly, me.

So here's an incentive for you to help me answer that ubiquitous bitcoin criticism, "What can I actually buy with bitcoins that I would really want?"

If you bought coffee or tea from BitBrew.net after June 19th, refer a new customer and they can enter the email address you used when you made your purchase as a single-use only coupon code to receive 10 % off their purchase. Once their bitcoins are confirmed, I'll email you a coupon code good for 15% off your next order!

15% off coupon codes will only be distributed for bringing in new customers. If you can't convince anyone to try one of our premium products, you may use your own email to get 10% off your next order but you will not receive the 15% off coupon code.

But wait, there's more!

Procrastinators, you're in luck. Make a purchase before Septmeber 30th at regular price, and you can also refer a new customer to receive your 15% off coupon code!

sorry, no citations for this thread
Without citations how could we explain?

Right. You haven't given any examples of posts or bitcoin flaws.
1477  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin Business Review - Call for Writers on: August 27, 2011, 02:28:25 AM
I'm willing to write an article. I'm entrepreneurial by nature and Bitcoin has opened up an overwhelming number of opportunities for anyone who's been searching for their "niche." It really is a horse of a different color, however, and I'm sure many could benefit from the experiences we've had.

What size article are you looking for?

I'm assuming revenue will be from advertising?

1950's dad (glasses, pipe, etc.) dunking a bitcoin into a cup of coffee that says "BitBrew" on the side.
1479  Other / Off-topic / Re: What kind of books does the community like? on: August 26, 2011, 02:20:29 PM
Science fiction is also missing but I guess it's included under "fiction."

Honestly, I've purchased books in every one of those categories except "self-help".

Just make sure you hand it over to someone professional and reliable, Jon. I'd love to volunteer but the technical proficiency required is beyond me.
