My brother and I are attending the conference.  We are looking to meet up with fellow bitcoiners.  We are also looking for a place to stay.  If you have any suggestions please let me know.


Are you just looking for available hotel rooms or for someplace free? The Hampton Inn & Suites where I'll be staying still has rooms and is 2.55 miles away from the convention center.

I'll be driving so I can give you a lift back and forth if schedules permit.

I live about 30 minutes away, but am unsure about going. Hope they will all be around for another one come next year

Even if I was broke, if I lived that close I'd go just to hang out with bitcoiners before and after conference events.

Patent pending.

Maybe you should look for the patent or application.

I was thinking about that also. It would be fun to have name tags that flip over to show your forum name.

FreeMoney shouldn't do this unless he wants to get mobbed.

I wonder if we would be able to guess who is who just from our manor and rantings?

Wait, other bitcoiners live on manors? I missed out on that.

**********Example post*****************
I will be at the Hilton lobby bar starting about 7pm. Interested in venture capitol and crowdfunding.

Don't forget to include the day.

Is this another China speculation thread?

Well, i read that fortune cookies were an American invention.

yes, but you still find them in Chinese restaurants.

Me, too.

Saturday and/or Sunday evening will have to be my socializing time. Anybody doing anything after conference time? I think it will be fun to meet you characters live.  Smiley

I'm arriving Friday and I'm up for any evening hang outs.

I wonder, should we wear name tags with our forum handles?
469  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: [ANN] Bitcoin on Blueseed, the international waters startup ship on: May 13, 2013, 02:15:51 PM
One of the conveniences the website says Blueseed will offer is a "post office." Will that be a US post office? How will that work?

Probably UPS and a lot of other private package shipping systems.  Alternatively, simply a service to ferry your US mail to the USPS on shore.

I'm sure this will be the case, I was just a little taken aback since I've only seen USPS locations referred to as post offices.

On a related note, how would one receive packages on board? Will Blueseed have its own postal code? Would shipments from the US have to pass through customs?
470  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: michael from try desperate to buy my address on: May 12, 2013, 03:16:12 AM

He could be running a scam but more likely he does just want the account to get some discounted ripples.   But if you present a trade to someone and send them the money first and they agree to it and they receive the money and you deliver the goods, then no one was "scammed".  That is a called a business transaction between consenting adults. 

It would only be a scam if he bought an older account to do something scammy with on the site.  The ripples thing is the most likely answer so not a scam.

The same person has offered to pay me to make a post including his receiving address. It does really seem he is only after the Ripples.
471  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Looking for domains for bitcoins on: May 12, 2013, 03:11:08 AM
You only want to register a domain for a month? I don't think anyone does that.

Anyone "renting" a domain for such a short period of time would seem very suspicious, as well.
472  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: Does this site Exist? If not [REQ] for a site. on: May 12, 2013, 03:05:26 AM
So what you basically are asking for is a wordpress multi-site set up which includes a QR code generating plugin and a link shortening plugin. This would be very easy to create but, since it could all be done for free, I don't know how many people would be interested in paying for it.
473  Economy / Services / Re: Need Math Help? on: May 11, 2013, 12:37:09 AM
Probably not the best audience for this type of service. You might have better luck offering to teach English as a second language.
474  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: As a store owner who accepts bitcoins, anyone who wants can track my income on: May 10, 2013, 11:31:07 PM
If I generate addresses on the fly for each transaction, this mean I have to save the key to each address on the server. For many small business the use shared hosting, security will be a major issue.

If I generate the addresses offline, it solves the security problem.

You just addressed your own concern.

And even if I have an address for each transaction, one can still figure out how much I am selling. I will have to turn those coins into fiat money in some market. So I will have to transfer them to some main address...

Why would you have to transfer them to a "main address"? If you're going to sell them on an exchange like Mt. Gox, it basically works like a mixing service. I once had someone "examine" an address of mine, not realizing it was one generated by Mt.Gox and he congratulated me on my success since he could see that "I" had traded millions of bitcoins.  Cheesy

But I don't see a way to hide my income from a determined "spy".

Conventional accounting doesn't "hide" anyone's income. Merchants looking to keep company business a secret from prying eyes, ie auditors, cook their books.

Bitcoin may be anonymous, but its open ledgiure blockchain may eventually kill it.

This is a common misconception. Bitcoin doesn't require identifying information from you for it to work but it is not inherently anonymous. Many here (myself included) would call its transparency a feature, not a fault.
475  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Senate passes internet sales tax bill on: May 10, 2013, 11:15:34 PM
I didn't know certain cities and counties had their own sales taxes on top of the "standard" state sales tax Huh

In my county there are seven "Special Purpose Districts" which impose their own sales and use tax in addition to state, city, transit, and county taxes.
476  Economy / Lending / Re: Need 5000$ Loan on: May 10, 2013, 08:37:09 PM
You have to list if you own computers too?

The bitcoin loan will be paid back. IT will not be put under bankruptcy. I work and get 812 a month and rent is 695 a month so 50$ A month would be good to pay back

AFAIK you must list all assets and debts under bankruptcy.  What you are proposing is someone assist you with bankruptcy fraud.

Ask your lawyer.
477  Economy / Goods / Going to San Jose! BitBrew orders placed next week should expect delays. on: May 10, 2013, 08:22:45 PM
I'll be gone for a few days, so any orders placed between May 13 and May 20 should expect a few more days than usual for the product to arrive.

See you at the conference!
478  Other / Off-topic / Re: Who DeathAndTaxes is? on: May 10, 2013, 07:11:34 PM
I love the OP's implying that whatever web scraper he wrote is some kind of amazing quantum AI that is so CPU-heavy he had to turn off all his mining programs while it rans for weeks doing the kinds of pattern recognition you usually see on TV shows like 24 or Person of Interest. I picture it like this:

-OP types "Who is Satoshi Nakamoto?" into his hackstation, which appears on 9 screens at once.
-Green letter scroll across black screens for hours, surveillance photos of asian men flash across the screen.
-Computer speaks in half robotic/half human voice "There are a number of possibilities, Michael"
-OP says "Narrow the search. Enhance the variables."
-Montage of OP pacing around his dark apartment while the computer runs.
-Computer speaks "You're not going to like this Michael".
-OP speaks: "Just give me the results, S.A.T.O. !"
-S.A.T.O. : "I've narrowed it down to a list of suspects. Number one is the forum poster DeathandTaxes"
-OP : "Okay, now we're getting somewhere. S.A.T.O., give me the case on DeathandTaxes"
-S.A.T.O.: "He gets quoted all the time on bitcointalk."
-OP: "BINGO. Thanks buddy. And now the game begins".

The superhackcomputer powers down as OP opens a forum window and types "WHO DEATHANDTAXES IS?".

Fade to black.

The AI should be making some snarky comments as well. For instance, OP should ask, "Are you certain?" and the computer should reply, "It's the only thing in life that is certain."

Satoshi wasn't genius. He compiled together ideas of other guys.

Satoshi was a genius. Einstein didn't invent mathematics or physics, he merely came up with some new equations. Satoshi implemented Bitcoin almost on his own. If that's not genius then I don't know what is.

I agree. If Satoshi is indeed only one person (I happen to believe he is), the elegance and simplicity of Bitcoin is the work of a genius.

From what I've read, he also seems to be the type of person more likely to lurk than post. If your bot is determining the likelihood of an online identity belonging to Satoshi based on the number of posts, it might be skewing your results.
480  Other / Off-topic / Re: Post your Total time logged into Bitcointalk on: May 10, 2013, 06:02:05 PM

But seriously 98 days, that like a year reading this stuff if you spend roughly 1/3 of your time on bitcointalk.

He registered in June 2011 so it's more like 1/7 (average of less than 3 and a half hours per day).

Now that I've done the math, I don't feel so bad about my stats.
