Does anyone dare to make a quantitative prediction?

I'd say 10% up from 14th of Sept. price till 17th is in the range of possibility. Especially because we are bound to go up anyway IMO.

Up enough to clear 12.15 and resolve the up trend.

IDK about during it, could even be down since ppl don't have secure access to their acts.  But given current trend, the convention, and QE3 next week is looking to be pretty huge :-).

Lets sum up Day 1 of Bitcoin2012:

Any interesting announcements, news, rumors yet?

What happened during the most anticipated presentations of today (Birgitta Jónsdóttir, Richard Stallman, Mihai Alisie "Bitcoin Magazine",..)?

.

What can be expected of tomorrows presentations? Any impending announcements in the pipeline?
Pls sort by speaker (e.g. Max Keiser, David Hunter, Jeff Garzik, David Birch,..)!

Ok, so based on the scarce news that trickled down into the ether and into my ear, today was kind of a disappointment when you were waiting for any announcement, projects, or news. Miss Iceland (Birgitta Jónsdóttir) just talked about the importance of privacy on the internet..<jawn>. Richard Stallmann warned of the dangers of proprietary software (nothing new here, move along!), Mihai Alisie (Bitcoin Magazine) announced that the Magazine will be carried by some large print retailer across the UK (O.K. nice progress, but nothing special) and that everybody basically had a good time but thats all.
...
I wish tomorrow will produce some exitement, something at least the big news agencies present (Reuters, BBC, Bitcoin Magazine;) ) can write about.

My biggest hopes for some action are based on David Hunter, chief executive of Ukash. He's holding his presentation in Room C at 14:00 - 14:30 BST, "Bitcoins and Ukash, how might they work together?" Maybe he announces some cooperation with UKash and bitcoin, like you can buy UKash credit with bitcoin directly on the site and charge your CashU account with it, instead of goint through meat space retailers.

This is not surprising and actually expected. The fact that RMS gave his speech at a Bitcoin conference is a very significant  promotion for Bitcoin. To put things into perspective.  GNU/Linux accounts for 1% of the desktop operating system market share. A similar market share for Bitcoin would require a market price for 1 BTC of approximately 10000 USD.

Concerned that blockchain bloat will lead to centralization? Storing less than 4 GB of data once required the budget of a superpower and a warehouse full of punched cards. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/87/IBM_card_storage.NARA.jpg https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punched_card

So far I havent heard of anything newsworthy from the conference. I think nothing else will come off it. Some nice lectures for the attendees, yes; but nothing world changing.

Disclosure: I solld all my bitcoins just now

Stallman putting his stamp on bitcoin removes the last of my reservations about the technical end of the protocol.

I think you had the wrong impression the the purpose of this conference.  Big announcements at confs happen in more mature industries as the marketing dept tries to create "buzz".  Without even going, this conf seemed more like a hackerspace meetup -- where ideas and partnerships are germinated not announced.  We should have been trying to figure out whether finanicial industry reps went and if so who they work for...

What will come from the conference is mostly hidden because most of the value is in the talks between different Bitcoin pioneers. I can tell that there are potentially some big things coming from it but only time will tell really.

Personally I hope the next conference would be more business oriented. I'm planning on organizing one in Helsinki btw. It would be bigger than anything so far.

Indeed I had this problem that I didn't acquire enough pounds when I came to London. That was solved fairly easily, I found a buyer for my bitcoins and got plenty of pounds. It was at a decent rate as well so I didn't lose anything in the exchange. Withdrawing from an ATM would have been a losing proposition, so that worked out great. I sold some of my Casascius coins for pounds as well.
