Bitcoin100.org has been updated to reflect the addition of The League Against AIDS, Inc., WeSearch, The Water Project, and the Sri Lanka Campaign. Did I miss anyone?

BTW, I just renewed the registration for the bitcoin100.org domain - hard to believe it's already been two years since Bruno launched this project.  Shocked

As far as my wife is concerned, me bringing back some Bees Brothers caramels was the best thing about the Inside Bitcoins conference.  Wink

What about the other pictures? You know which ones I'm talking about.

I just got home about an hour ago but I plan on putting up a blog post much like the last one concerning the San Jose Conference.

And I have no idea what sort of embarrassing and incriminating pictures you are referring to.  Tongue

Looks like about 600 in attendance here at Inside BItcoins. I'm the guy wearing the pink tutu because I'm TMIBTCITW and, moreover, bringing awareness to The Tutu Project, of which has yet to accept Bitcoin donations but, hopefully, by my action here at Inside Bitcoins, that'll change, whereupon they'll receive a $1,000 USD via bitcoins endowment from Bitcoin 100.

I just checked into my room at the Tropicana and I am starving. Anyone else in Vegas yet?

Arrived in Biloxi, MS about 8 PM. On the way there, I keep thinking about a certain female poker room manager that used to work at the Grand Casino, prior to Katrina, named Cecere (misspelled, I think). I opted to only visit the Beau Rivage, and guess who was the first person I ran into? Atlas! Seriously, it was Cecere, for she's now the second shift manager in the poker room at the Beau. Even though I now have a long white beard, she said she knew who I was by my eyes.

She then informed me that a 1-3 NL seat was available, so I figured I might as well get a reduced room rate by logging in a couple hours. The normal rate is $79/night. The poker rate is $79/night. Too bad I didn't do my homework prior to putting in the session. I did happen to squeak out a $78 win, having been down $122 and up $143. Not too bad of a swing for not playing live poker for several years.

Somebody at the table mentioned buying drugs, so I plugged Silk Road to see where that would lead. Sure enough, I was soon holding court, discussing Bitcoin with a table full of drunks. Ironically, all but the dealer was aware of Bitcoin.

Left Biloxi late, and just got to Beaumont, TX. edd called, so I'm having dinner with him Thursday night, probably at Ruth's Chris Steak House. Friday, I'm heading to CoinTerra's office/lab in Austin, TX.

I enjoyed dinner very much, Phinnaeus! Maybe next time you'll let me get a word in edgewise.  Tongue

I created an event on Facebook for those that would like to meet up and grab some beers on Monday night.

Suggestions for an alternate location are welcome.

Inside Bitcoin - Meetup - 12/9
Heh, I'd go, but I'm 15.  Maybe lunch on Tuesday?

I'll be arriving early enough to have lunch on Monday.

Tuesday is the first day of the conference. I'm sure many of us will be having lunch at the MGM or someplace very close by.

I'll be going.


Glad you are coming. It will be good to see you again.

Just look for the kids with the "Bitcoin 2012" T-shirts.

Will do. I'm looking forward to finally meeting Nathan and Sam.

You're not going to believe this, but all the micro-pizzas were eaten by a horde of homeless locusts.  Cry

We're going to have to settle on a conventional meal. I'm leaving Pensacola, FL, later in the afternoon, spending the night it Biloxi, MS. After that, I'm heading to Austin, TX, to visit CoinTerra's Lab. It's after that I wish to meet up you. Give me a call at [redacted] so that I'll have your number and to make arrangements, edd.

Bruno Kucinskas

Will do, Bruno. I'm usually available in the evenings and would prefer to meet closer to San Antonio if it's not too inconvenient. Traffic from here to Austin is brutal after 4 PM, turning it into a 2 hour trip each way for me.

I can just imagine the conversation between my wife and I:

Me: "Hon, I'm headed out to meet Bruno/Phinnaeus for dinner. I'll be back in five hours or so."

Her: "Is that the one with the coffee table?"

Me: "No, someone else has the table, he just has an unhealthy obsession with it."

Her: "Wasn't he posting pictures of she-males, too?"

Me: "You saw those?"

Her: "And now you're going out to dinner with him and you'll be gone for five hours."

Me: "..."

Her: "Have fun!"

So, how's the " Road Trip " coming along? Did you stop by Cointerra?

Hell, I'm still in Pensacola, FL. Got the turkeys outta the ground this afternoon of which, BTW, weren't fully cooked, but the process is continuing in conventional ovens as we speak. I'm finishing up the signs tomorrow, then hittin' the road to Biloxi. From there, it's to Austin to visit Cointerra's lab, hopefully see Atlas, and meetup with edd. From there, Laughlin, NV, then Las Vegas.

Looks like it's goin' to be a 5,000+ mile trip. Can't wait to be stopped by the cops, asking me why there's two shovels in the truck.

"Officer, you're not goin' to believe this, but I first drove down from Illinois to Pensacola to cook six $100 turkeys in the ground to feed homeless people."

"And who does the tutu belong to?"

"Thats mine! I'm going to wear it when I get to Las Vegas for the Bitcoin conference..."

"Did you say Bitcoin?"

"Yes. You see, I'm The Most Interesting..."

"OMG, can I have a pic of you and me together? It's for my... my... nephew."

~TMIBTCITW

Glad to see this post, Phin. I was just about to PM you to find out when you'd be in the area. If you don't find Atlas, I'll join you for a micro-pizza. I can't believe you're delivering them in person!
193  Bitcoin / Meetups / Re: Inside Bitcoins on: December 03, 2013, 12:23:26 PM
I'll be going.

If anyone needs accommodations, PM me. I can get one more room, one king bed or two queen, at a very attractive rate or you can have the spare bed in my room for half that price. I accept bitcoins, of course.

If Rassah attends (I'm assuming he will but haven't run across any post of his confirming), then it looks like at least 3/4 of the Bitcoin100 team will be there.

If you didn't get to order on Friday, good news, I'll be extending the same 15% off offer until Monday!

A friend just asked me if "Jewish Community Federation of San Francisco" qualifies.  He insisted it is not religious.
www.jewishfed.org/

Let's see what their site has:

Quote
Donor choice

For the first time in Federation history, donors will have the opportunity to designate their giving by selecting one or more of four funds for a portion of their gift. How it Works

The four funds are:
Community Core Fund: Ensuring a thriving community by caring for the vulnerable, promoting Jewish culture, and strengthening education and identity.
Israel and Global Fund: Strengthening Israel by advancing social justice and equal opportunity; and providing for Jews in need worldwide.
Bay Area Initiatives Fund: Addressing current community-wide challenges through targeted initiatives.
Innovation Fund: Seed-funding innovative projects in emerging and traditional Jewish organizations.
I don't understand if you are saying this qualifies or not because I am not clear on whether the word "Jew" is religious.

Being Jewish doesn't necessarily mean being religious. There is often a fine line between preserving Jewish cultural heritage and promoting the Jewish religion since the two have been intertwined for thousands of years.

Personally, I'd like to see some ambivalence in their wording cleared up; does "providing for Jews in need worldwide" mean providing food, shelter, and safety or does it mean providing copies of the Torah and bringing in rabbis to make sure their food is kosher? Does "strengthening education" mean helping children find their way to school with the proper tools or does it mean posting the ten commandments in classrooms? Do "innovative projects" include creative methods for circumventing restrictions due to observing Shabbat in order to continue functioning in our increasingly technologically driven society?

Always check ten times before clicking a link

Eleven times is even better!

That's why mine go up to eleven:

Hi there. Alex with Vote Hemp here with a quick question. Just how prominently do you expect Bitcoin 100 orgs to display their acceptance of bitcoin donations?

We're adding a bitcoin donation option to http://www.votehemp.org/contribute in the next day or two and I want to let my guys know if they also need to put some sort of indicator on the landing page as well - at the moment we don't reference any contribution options on the index page. "contribute" is an option under the "Take Action" drop-down.

Thanks for your time and for all that you do.

Have you heard about Bitcoin Black Friday? That and Bitcoin100.org are what enabled me to convince my bosses to add a bitcoin donation option, by the way.

With respect,

Alex

Guys, please verify and confirm, but my first reply had to be to point out that Bitcoin100 can't donate to political orgs  Undecided

Fraid you're right, Rassah. They clearly identify themselves as a "lobbying organization".
