3) Be an active community member that go to IoT meetups and conferences, network, get people interested

This is easy, it really works and it eventually pays !
I did a lot of Bitcoin & Cryptos meetups in France and now people pay me to learn about it.

Start some meetups in your city now !

Exactly. I think people just mentally over-complicate the issue of how easy it can be to get involved and engaged. You don't require some hyper-extensive tech background or even business background to get some connections. Then just forward it to the foundation and we'll do the rest and you'll know that you've been productive. It's infinitely better than complaining at BTT

No, people will help if they want to.

Is it possible to participate in test without being a tech savy?

I got nowhere, but I am a proper tech tard and there are no instructions and no simple .exe file to click and follow prompts.

Hopefully someone will write some sort of guide to set it up. It is far from idiot-proof atm.

Sure!

Go to the http://chat.iotatoken.com/  and finding there iotatestisg channel.
There you will find link to 0.9.0 with UI. Download it, run like it's usually java server , then find file nostalgia file and run it as well .
At first you will see window for entering your seed/pass . In case of error go to the configuration file and delete the last line that says iri.apiPassword = . (restart all)
Then, after entering right pass you will see main menu. You have just push Claim button and wait.
This is very simply there to send IOTA and make new address
This is just in few words )))


from CFB:

cfb 4:49 PM
Soon I'll publish 0.9.0. It contains a reference client called Nostalgia. It has no styling so it looks like a time traveller from 90s, don't be scared, it's for reference and testing only.
The very first thing everyone of you is supposed to do is to do conversion from old to new address, this is done by clicking [Claim iotas] button and waiting for several minutes.
Nostalgia shows only those transactions that contain addresses you own. If you transfer iotas to someone you'll see only which your addresses they have come from. To see the recipients address, click [Show bundle]. Bundle is a pack of transactions. A standard transfer usually requires 4 transactions: One for the recipient (+), one for the change (+), one for the spending the entire balance (-) and a complement spending transaction with 0 iotas transferred which is required for 162-trit security. 81-trit wouldn't require a complement and 243-trit would require 2 complements.
All actions take time for transactions generation which is very slow because the algorithms are not optimized (reference versions). Also in average 30 seconds is required to fetch recent changes from the coordinator. Note that coordinator's IP has changed, it's inside configuration.iri and nodes.iri.

1. Download latest JRE
2. Download IRI 
3. Unzip IRI
4. Go to the unzipped folder and edit file 'configuration.iri', remove the last line, and save it
5. Open terminal inside the unzipped folder (hold shift down, press right mouse button->open terminal   - for windows OS)
6. Check java version: "java -version" (add JRE to system path if needed)
7. Run: "java -jar IRI.jar"
8. Open "nostalgia.html"
9. Enter seed
10. Press Claim IOTAs
11. click OK to the first popup -> Wait for 2nd popup 'packet received' -> OK
12. Wait 10 minutes
13. Click button 'refresh page' (TIP: not the browser button or F5)
14. Check your IOTAs

IT'S WORKING!!!!

Good work @CfB   Cool

PS: Anyone can add if I forgotten something.
EDIT #1: added step#4 as a separate step (previously it was inside step#9)

Just to be clear: full GUI is coming very soon, but this is still very easy to setup and test out for everyone. We need as many tester as possible for a quick launch!

This is also a good way to deconstruct sending and receiving Iotas.  If you have an Iota project in mind, you can use the included html files to easily learn now to construct transactions.

A Personal Quote on BTT from 2011:
"I'd be willing to make a moderate "investment" if the value of the BTC went below $2.00.  Otherwise I'll just have to live with my 5 BTC and be happy. :/"  ...sigh.  If only I knew.

Does it mean that the client was officially released? Can not found the link. If so, it is secure to make transactions or is it still in beta mode?

1. Download latest JRE
2. Download IRI 
3. Unzip IRI
4. Go to the unzipped folder and edit file 'configuration.iri', remove the last line, and save it
5. Open terminal inside the unzipped folder (hold shift down, press right mouse button->open terminal   - for windows OS)

Could you confirm the change of 2'779'530'283'277'761 max supply instead of 999999999.999999 ?


correct.

Since the amounts are so big now, we use kilo, mega, giga, tera and peta units.

Some conversions in JavaScript http://jsbin.com/?js,console

Code:
function toTernary(num) {
  return Number(num).toString(3);
}
   
function fromTernary(str) {
  return parseInt(str,3);
}
   
var supply = 2779530283277761;
console.log("IOTA supply= "+supply);
console.log(toTernary(supply)+" ternary");

var t = "111111111111111111111111111111111";
console.log(fromTernary(t)+" decimal");
   
//var t= Math.log2(3);
var t= Math.log(3) / Math.log(2); 
console.log("1 trit= log2(3)= ln(3)/ln(2)= "+t+ " bits");
   
//console.log(Math.pow(3, 4));
//console.log(Math.pow(3, 5));

var secure = [81, 162, 243];
for (var i=0; i<secure.length; ++i) {
  var bits = t*secure[i];
  console.log(secure[i]+" trits= "+bits+"= "+Math.floor(bits)+" bits");
}

console output:

IOTA supply= 2779530283277761
111111111111111111111111111111111 ternary
2779530283277761 decimal
1 trit= log2(3)= ln(3)/ln(2)= 1.5849625007211563 bits
81 trits= 128.38196255841365= 128 bits
162 trits= 256.7639251168273= 256 bits
243 trits= 385.145887675241= 385 bits

BTC is good, XEM is better. https://nem.io
Binary is good, Ternary is better. https://iota.org

hi Smiley
without being participant of the ICO I can (and did already) easily follow steps 1-8, IRI 0.9.0 is up and running,
but now with step 9, from where do I get the seed to enter into nostalgia.html?
I assume only ICO participants have that seed?
cheers

write down a long (30+ chars) random sequence containing lowercase latin letters and the number "9".
This is your seed.
Keep it secret, keep it save.
