Next time you should position your camera in such a way that when you're looking at the interviewer you're also looking at the camera.

Bad camera angles distract from the quality of the interview.

Next time you should position your camera in such a way that when you're looking at the interviewer you're also looking at the camera.

Yes, also an equal level of camera and you is desirable, otherwise you would look down on the viewer (if camera is positioned too low) or awkwardly up to him/her.

All of that's fine if you're organising the recording of something yourself.  When you're invited to appear on someone else's turf, you don't usually get to call the shots regarding camera angles, lighting or anything else unless you're a mega-star.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

I liked the interview.  Some statements about halfway through wrt. commitment to Bitcoin ideals showed large balls.  My opinion of Charlie as an enterprerneur (and Bitinstant as a service) has always been very positive, but after seeing this I now also have a positive opinion of him as as Bitcoin ideologist and advocate.

Great job Charlie! It's great to see Adam enthusiastic as well. I sent over a few coins to his show just for that.

It looked like the interview was talking place via Skype, so it was definately Yankee's camera that was recording him.

In my opinion, you didn't seem to have a strong grasp of how bitcoin works technically, and it made me almost uneasy to think you are on the board of TBF. I'm sure you know how it works better than I do, but this interview did not expose that fact.

In my opinion he does, and his comments were sometime way over his audience could understand, you could see it on their faces.

You made any interview lately LightRider?

My job is to bring the complexities of Bitcoin down to the consumer level, to increase adoption and show utility in the currency and payment system.

Depending on my audience, I usually focus the conversation around economics, finance, technical integration, cryptography and other areas.

Some areas, my knowledge and understanding is better then others and I take every opportunity to learn more and deepen my understanding.

Being on the board allows me to speak, interact and learn from some of the brightest minds in the world and I look forward to more opportunities.

If you have a specific area of expertise that you think I am lacking, I would love to have some coffee or chat over the phone with you  Smiley

Oh how I wish bitcoin was only 131 lines of code...

It was a good interview but indeed some of the information was wrong.

I thought you were blind!  I didn't watch the whole interview, but way to go in spreading the word.

Hardfork aren't that hard.
