I'd love to go... Next time! Any update about the video recording? I really hope there will be something available shortly after the conference!

Oups, I missed it, many thanks!

Monero's privacy and therefore fungibility are MUCH stronger than Bitcoin's. 
This makes Monero a better candidate to deserve the term "digital cash".

Another piece of fun advice:  Laptop thefts happen with some regularity at tech conferences ... at a Bitcoin conference if the thieves don't STEAL ALL THE LAPTOPS, they're sleeping on the job.

Prepare for theft by having a good backup and either not leaving coins on your laptop or at least using full disk encryption and wallet encryption. Be prepared to keep your laptop with you at all times. Consider bringing a lock for it.

Let's hope Marriott and the rest of the major hotels are done changing all the guest room locks:

Similarly, protect your smartphone with Bitcoin Wallet.


If my Android phone is not rooted, are the bitcoins on it reasonably secure?

i'm not rooted and i've never had a problem with Spinner.

1. Gut the insides out of a broken laptop.
2. Put a Wi-Fi Raspberry Pi, GPS, and a g-sensor in it, so you know if it gets moved, and how far.
3. Fill the rest of the empty space in the case with explosives.
4. Wait until you see that your laptop has been stolen and is still on the move.
5.  Huh Huh Huh Huh
6. Profit?

That's OK - that's what they're supposed to be for:  to keep us safe.

Although I'm sure they think that fucking with us endlessly and making our lives a hell on earth is just a bonus.

Behave, talk smartly to the press if they ask you questions and make it more popular Smiley
Side topic possibly some Pizza for the crowd showing that bitcoin transcations do work as a demonstration and that it is just the beginning
Or that you can get gift cards from over 50,000 retail locations using bitcoins

Incidentally Saturday, May 18th, is the 3rd anniversary of Laszlo's offer to pay 10,000 BTC to have 2 pizzas delivered to him.

There were some nibbles but nobody confirming they would do a deal, so three days later Laszlo asks:
 "So nobody wants to buy me pizza?  Is the bitcoin amount I'm offering too low?"

And following that a deal was struck. Two pizzas delivered for 10K BTC.

You're missing the point of conferences.

One does not go to a conference in order to listen to the presentations - those will be recorded for later viewing. One goes to an event like this for the socializing and for the networking. The conversations that happen out in the hallways while the presentations are going on are more important than the presentations themselves.

I thought he was asking if any one of us was interested in presenting on it, maybe I misunderstood, but I completely agree with you - and that's why I'm going Smiley

I'm in San Francisco!  Where can I spend bitcoins?  Is there a list somewhere?  I'm only aware of Cups and Cakes, the sushi restaurant, and the grocery store that were listed in that reporter's article about trying to live on bitcoin.

Note that San Francisco is very, very far from the conference. Hope you got a hotel room closer.

I'm hoping to use the Gyft app to the full extent.
