Lot's of buzz around bitcoin this weekend at Libertopia 2012 San Diego.

Trace Mayer gave an excellent talk and scolded registrants who paid their registration fee with credit cards at such an anti-state gathering. "Now you're really on the list" is basically what he said.

Good discussions on crypto-currencies with an excellent presentation on the potential of Open Transactions when stacked on top of bitcoin. If attendees hadn't heard about bitcoin before this weekend they sure did now. It's becoming very apparent to freedom-seekers that bitcoin solves many problems and I can sense a "tipping point" coming.

Jonathan Logan and Frank Braun also gave excellent presentations on Bitcoin, Agorism and Tradecraft. There was a great speech by Doug Casey as well (although he didn't mention bitcoin):

UPDATE: When listening to Casey's speech again, he basically points out all of the problems that bitcoin helps solve.

Thanks for the pointer, that was a very entertaining talk by Doug Casey. I like his definition of stupidity as "an unwitting tendency to self-destruction", an affliction that is dooming the future living standards of boobus Americanus.

For all Casey fans, you can find tons of great, more or less weekly interviews with him in the Conversations with Casey archives. Straight talk on current events and life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Trace is awesome Smiley  It is absolutely hypocritical to go to Libertopia and use government fiat the whole time... like a hippie rallying against globalization while holding up a sign on paper from canada drawn with a pen made in Vietnam. Wake up libertarians, your money has arrived! Start using it!

And thanks for the report, Steve!

thx for sharing, great video. Glad to see I'm not the only one that feels like he is walking true a zoo that specializes in ape like species.

Thanks so much for the report and links.  I wanted to go to Libertopia this year, but had to work last weekend.

I hope there is still interest among the community for a vendor table and presentation at the California Libertarian Party Convention in Sacramento next March.  I'd like to promote Bitcoin to the target audience and show people how to use this fantastic/disruptive technology.
