How many people here use bitcoin wallet apps for cellphone?
I use BitcoinSpinner.

Do any of you guys use GPG/PGP? We could sign each others' keys while we're there too.

are we still doing this? Seems a bit short noticed. We should push it into November and actually advertise it a bit.
I say we still do it and I am going to lock in the local.  There is no reason why we can't do one in November as well and advertise it.  I was just trying to put a pin in it so we can try to work from something.  Happy to come to another meetup in November too if it works with my schedule.

BitcoinSpinner is a simple chainless wallet app. I still have my own private key, but a server relays my transactions for me. In my opinion it's a good middle ground between security/usability/battery. When I had a full client on my phone I'd be all like "This bitcoin thing is awesome. Just download the app, and in a million hours I'll eventually be able to send you some. Oops my phone just died." Now my two minute pitch involves free money right then and there, no waiting.

GPG is an encryption tool, useful for signing/verifying messages. I kinda just mess around with encryption software for fun, but some people have "key signing parties" where everyone shares copies of their key fingerprint. Once you've verified each others' keys, you will always be able to communicate securely with those people, or the people they've shared keys with, and so on. If you meet in person, you can more highly rate how much you trust the key, which strengthens the "web of trust".

GPG is kinda tangential to bitcoin, but I think of it more as part of a greater free software movement anyways.

Oh you don't need to pay me to come to San Diego but I can't make the drive on the 7th Sad.  I and or we could meet at the conference the following weekend that is going on.  I do allot of meeting/planing for my work and trying to get everyone to meet is hard so if you down for it set up a San Diego time and place and I will try to make it as I am sure others will as well.

Grin,  So are you calling us easy Grin

Stephen is a major contributor (I think the webmaster as well but please tell me if I am wrong Stephen) for the Libertopia 2012 - San Diego - Oct. 11-14, 2012.  There is going to be bitcoin talks at the conference and tickets are 250 online and 300 at the door.  I am sure Stephen can tell us more but that could be both something to attend and also meet up at on the weekend.  I have a work commitment so I can't go to most of the conference and probably won't by a ticket due to lack of funds but if we want to meet up in San Diego with some other Bitcoin folks might be a spot of a second meet up?

Stephen if you want to tell us more it might get people interested in going.  Your post turned me on to the conference and the conference has some interesting info.  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=109389.0

So just to confirm that Sunday at 4pm the Yard house in Rancho Cucamonga with outside seating so come one come all.  I will get an area that is out of the way outside where we can chill and talk.  I think with the recent developments of ASIC, BFL, GLBSE and other items I will be looking forward to talking about what people think. 

For those who can't make it please toss up another date and location and lets see if we can keep this going,

So to follow up, yes there was a meeting and it counts because not one, or two but THREE people showed up Ahhha.

RandomQ, Explodicle, and myself had a few beers, enjoyed an appetizer and talked for a few hours.  I won't speak for the others but I enjoyed the time spent, we learned about what everyone is doing, how I was the oldest  Sad and I think had a good time.

So now that we know there is a San Diego meetup group and there are more folks who want to meet, someone else can recommend the next location and time.  I would rather participate then organize but happy to help.

420, I can't be down at the first few days of  libertopia but if you hold something on the weekend in the late afternoon I would consider driving down.  Hell, I will offer car pool too since I would not be staying the
night if that will help people, but you all have to meet me in the IE if you want to catch a ride Smiley.
