I got there a few minutes late myself.  I was scanning the panel as I only recognized a couple faces.   Ends up FellowTraveler was up there I guess, I didn't even know it and missed the chance to meet him after.

The questions asked were the type of typical questions facing Bitcoin, economic (deflationary spiral), technical, practical (trade), etc.   The guests in attendance were libertarians and goldbugs.  @SilverVigilante pretty much had the best response basically by saying he supports bitcoin not just for its attributes (low cost transfer, non-reversible, etc.) but for what it is not -- it is not the Federal Reserve.  It is not the Goldman Sack nor it is the JP Morgue.   It is not helping to finance the wars.

I seriously think the faster you get someone using bitcoins on a smartphone (e.g., playing bitZino, or a BitcoinSpinner wallet,) and a tiny sample of coins so they are using them, sending them back and forth you then get the message through ten times better than explaining the chicken and egg merchant / consumer catch-22.

Sorry I missed all these meets, was busy having babies (rather the wife was).  Anything planned in the near future?

I'm right next to the LA/OC border.

I'm thinking a bar crawl approach would be great to try.

Find an entertainment district (i.e., multiple restaurants / bars close together).  In the group, one person acts as the exchange.  So the order is taken, people pay the exchanger in bitcoins (e.g, via mobile, or some paper bitcoins even) and the exchanger pays cash to the bar.   Bring some tablet mobiles and [at locations where wi-fi is available] play bitZino, KingCo.in or SatoshiDICE to help show the server / bartender / bar owner one way that some people come into having a bunch of bitcoins they would like to spend on food and drinks.  

Maybe spending a half hour at each stop the crawl could hit about five places in a few hours.  Updates would be made via Twitter or e-mail or something so that late arrivals would know where to meet.

I would love to do a bar crawl! Friday/Saturday are a must for me as well. I'm located in downtown LA but would be ok with driving - somewhere near a bus/rail stop would be preferable since then I wouldn't need a DD.

I can't do March 1-3, I'm going to a prediction market workshop. (Btw, if you're interested there might still be spots)

Re: A Bitcoin Fountain (Burbank, CA) - -> BTC for the taking!
Grab the coin and have a nice day!

This weekend is SCALE 11X (So CAlifornia Linux Expo).  I'm not able to attend this year's conference but last year I attended and in addition to having some great conversations with sysadmins, developers and others in the open source community I gained a healthy fear of relying on the cloud for services in which complete control over security is necessary (something which played out months later with the hacks at Linode (where funds were stolen from Bitcoinica, Slush and Bitcoin Faucet wallets) and Rackspace (where even more funds were stolen from a Bitcoinica wallet).

But if others from this list are attending it might make for a good impromptu Bitcoin meetup.

I might be interested in going to SCALE X11.  I will look into it but you might want to tell us more about it here and see if that can gen up some interest.

I live in Murrieta.  I didn't know where that was before we moved here, so ... it's near Temecula.  Wine Country.  Halfway between SD and Riverside.

I'm good friends with Tom Garrett who started the Society of Libertarian Entrepreneurs.  I'm the webmaster for voluntaryist.com.  The Dollar Vigilante says that I am their guy for programming tasks.  I still have free time, though, so if anyone wants to get together for lunch or ask me to take a look at their website, let me know.

I just put memeracing.net into alpha testing with an offer of 10% interest (paid on a loss of up to 1 bitcoin) to try to get people to play with it for testing. 

Nice to meet other Southern Californians with some backbone and wits.

Dave.

I like to provide some work at no charge to prove my valueAvoid supporting terrorism!

have you been interviewed before?
Sure.  I'm pretty old.  Lots of job interviews.  My kids interview me every now and then.  I'm independent now (jobless/self-employed/free/whatever), but I still talk to potential clients on the phone every now and then.

And I'm not smart enough to tell if you're just poking fun at me because my post kind of reads like a resume cover letter.  Made me smile either way :-).
