Searching google for bitcoin reveals nothing in the news or on blogs about the London Conference.

What's up with that?

Maybe because its the weekend?

Maybe because reporters present at the conference need to process their material and write up articles still?

Maybe there was just nothing interesting going on.

Stallman is usually good for a mention on a geek blog.

Because they all want to pretend for as long as possible that Bitcoin doesn't exist.

No argument there.

Maybe because this is exactly what happened at the last conference?

Do people forget so soon?

Bruce Wagner: This conference will be awesome! There will be billions of press! This is going to take bitcoin to the next level!! We gonna be rich! Join me on an around the world cruise!!

What actually happened: Forums went silent, complaints started to pour in that there was no online coverage. Then some shitty streams with poor sound popped up. There was no press reaction at all. Then a couple of weeks later some shitty vids with poor sound and video quality got released.

Perhaps next conference those who want proper documentation can pay to have it documented properly?

Perhaps the hosts could have been expected to hire some guy to film the presentations, but then didn't and thus managed to manouver their whole conference around the bitcoin community. Big point to improve on next time.

Yeah, I am sure they will learn and improve just like they did last time...



Actually,  there will be international television news camera crews there, from what they tell me....   not to mention that it's hosted by The Bitcoin Show and OnlyOneTV.... so I have a feeling there will be a LOT of video being shot there.... live streaming and otherwise.   Smiley

When can I download this,  and what should I search for in the app store?

Due to time constraints, I don't think a native app will be approved in time for the event this year (We only conceived the idea for the app Saturday), so we are providing it in a web app format.  We will post the URL here this afternoon.

After this event, I will start a new thread to discuss possible features for a native app for next year's event, perhaps with next year's we can get live streams.

Is there a stream of this? At what time?

Yes! We will stream everything live at onlyonetv.com! We're working on a second mobile stream since everyone has moved to the back of the studio for the time being. EVERYTHING on Saturday WILL be shown LIVE!

Apparently, there are no plans to stream the kick off.


Apparently, there are no plans to stream the kick off.


You can always download the Bambuser app and stream live from your mobile. Smiley

Yeah, I'm surprised no one has downloaded the ustream app and started streamin it...

Stream status from OnlyOneTv / conference organizers please?  Smiley

Nothing available??? I can't believe it.

Yesterday they announced the whole event would be covered:

Live Stream by onlyonetv

and numerous uploads from participants.


WHERE ARE THE VIDEOS/STREAMS?

this is unbelievable!!!

The talks is about to start, Bitnavigator has volunteered to help stream it for only1tv.

http://onlyonetv.com/watch-live/



It's nice that someone helps, but due to the sound it's completely unwatchable.

That's really too bad! Sad



Dear Bitcoin Show Team,

WHY don't you get people to help you if you can't manage on your own?

The stream shows a fat, shy monotoned IT dork talking to a crowd of 15 people in a small room with what looks like rivals homecoming decorations. I'm so sorry for people who flew in and got hotel tickets for this.


Yes.   We agree.    The OnlyOneTV Team agrees that the lack of live streams was a big fail.    I assure you that that won't happen again.

Fortunately, all the videos are viewable at http://onlyonetv.com now.

I may as well announce what I've been working on the past 48 hours....

Upcoming Bitcoin Conferences:

Dubai, Pattaya, Sydney, San Francisco, Mumbai, Amsterdam, Moscow, Tokyo, Rio de Janeiro, New York, Shenzhen, and London

See Map:  http://goo.gl/tjjQD

The only dates that have been officially announced are:

  • Pattaya / Feb 16-19, 2012
  • Amsterdam / June 14-17, 2012
  • New York City / Oct 18-21, 2012
  • Bitcoin World Cruise / Feb 26-Mar 10, 2013

As we work out the details, final dates, venues, etc....  we will be posting them on http://bitcoinconference.com and here in this thread.

My hope is that each of these cities could have a recurring Bitcoin Conference annually.

Obviously, planning this many Bitcoin Conferences is an enormous undertaking....   But I have taken on enormous undertakings before.     Wish me luck.    Smiley

It's the third major conference and again, no coverage. I understand that partecipating is more funny than reporting everything, tweeting everything and recording everything but that would be a very useful thing. It seems this conference doesn't even exist... what is happening? What is being said? Dunno

All the talks were recorded, and should be posted $Somewhere, $Sometime.

Perhaps the conference was signed off on, allowing it to go into liquidation.

Seriously, I'm looking to viewing/reading the happenings at the conference.

I dropped out of bitcoin right before this guy made his presence known and have only heard him about since dropping back in a couple of months ago.  I still have a hard time believing how anyone fell for his bullshit.

You only have to listen to him talk for about 15 seconds before you realize what a joke he is.

His stupid music on his stupid website told me all I needed to know.

Bitcoin will change monetary mechanics but human beings are still vulnerable to falling for narcissists. That can't be coded into any system.

It's really silly that there's no press.

Next conference, I will try to raise funds to go myself (hopefully it'll be in the US), with the promise that I'll live blog with text/pictures the whole thing.

IMO they aren't taking the potential of bitcoin serious if they aren't streaming it live or posting information as it becomes available.

Horrible and such a let down.

The question that elicited the most cheers was one that was asked of Richard Stallman after his talk: "You seem like a guy who values freedom, who loves freedom a lot. So why do you love the state?", to which Stallman replied "because the state protects the poor from the rich."

Great. Another dumb smart person.

I love Stallman, but this blindspot in the eyes of some of the Technorati is always disconcerting to run across.
