Please don't turn this into a flame fest or some other off topic discussion.  I will lock the thread and promptly forget about it if so.

I would like to know what one or two individuals (in the US preferably, unless the non-US person wants to pony up a ticket) that Bitcoin Talk community would nominate and accept as credible, verifiable individuals to be flown here to KC sometime around the end of October/Beginning of November time frame to see our facility, inspect the manufacturing equipment and test out the devices.  We don't have an exact date yet as to when we would do this, but I would like to get the ball rolling as far as names in the hat and see if there's even a vague consensus on who the individual(s) might be.

I know this Inaba dude, he's in KC, but I hear he's kind of a jerk.

I would love to as I am from Missouri and would like to see the facility.  But I doubt the bitcointalk community would nominate me as a credible representative. Smiley

On a more serious note, I would like to see Eleuthria or Graeme Tee, or maybe one of Graet's support folks in the US.

My first reaction was ckolivas. Maybe kano if he can't. My second opinion is Graet, but I wanna say he's in AU.

I'd like to go, but I'm pretty sure I'm not that well known.

I'll nominate yochdog. He's a miner, seems pretty well known, has BFL FPGAs, and has traded tens of thousands of dollars with forum members including a few thousand with me. I'd trust his report.

sunbreak

If i am informed correctly, sunbreak does not have a stake in this one way or the other, he would be a good impartial judge.  He is also very knowledgeable in the area.

I also heard that. I also heard he steals ASICs from BFL's dumpster.

I'm trying to think of people who are well established in the Bitcoin community, who would be willing to do this, who wouldn't be called a BFL shill after-the-fact. I could see Yochdog.

If BFL is paying for my planeflight, then I would be more then willing to come meet you guys, if you were to accept me. I am interested in meeting you all, testing the devices, checking out the facility, and of course coming back to these forums and elsewhere to put in a good word. I live in the Eastcoast, USA.

Also, I think Gigavps might be interested in visiting. I know he's been a big BFL customer for quiet some time.

Have you even flown from Sydney to LAX? Not exactly enjoyable, especially just to do it again the next day.

Throw in 2 nights at a hotel and a rental car, and you've got a deal. 

Sounds like an enjoyable experience to get a first hand look.  I don't have the experience with custom mining hardware though to be qualified to test it.  But I will be interested to see how the report goes, as I've been thinking about investing in a mining operation of my own. 

Charlie Kelly: I'm pleading the 5th.  The Attorney: I would advise you do that.  Charlie Kelly: I'll take that advice under cooperation, alright? Now, let's say you and I go toe-to-toe on bird law and see who comes out the victor?  The Attorney: You know, I don't think I'm going to do anything close to that and I can clearly see you know nothing about the law.
