Hey Guys!

I just wanted to introduce myself to let everyone know that I am not a troll.  (Ok, sometimes I can have troll tendencies, but just to make other people lulz)  Tongue

I've decided to invest in BitCoin and let me tell you why.  Well, obvious reasons are that it's the future, but that's not what I'm talking about.  I think it's a profound idea.  The kind of idea that could be very good for human kind.

Some bank-controlled-governments will fight this because it takes power away from them.  But I do think this scenario is less likely based on the past week-or-so's mostly positive inquisitive news coverage, including CBS and one of the core developers (can't remember his name right now) meeting with the CIA.

Chuck Shumer, etc. aren't helping at all, but, he could just have it wrong Undecided.  Corrupt, bank-controlled politicians are part of the whole reason I support BitCoin, and am weary but hopeful that our society can accept the social responsibility that is BitCoin.  I don't want people to be afraid of it.  They should embrace it and crave it like Lybians (OOPS!!  Embarrassed) Iranians embraced and craved freedom.  Governments should recognize BitCoin, not as a currency, not as a security, but as a fundamental freedom that belongs to the people.


ok.. anyway... Tongue

So, in real-world terms, Here's what I'm interested in doing:
1) Developing [something] that happens to also promote the credibility and wide acceptance of BitCoin.  That could be something simple like a website, or an iPhone app, graphics.  I don't know I was hoping to get some ideas. Smiley
2) I have a few website businesses that I'm in the process of evaluating to restructure for BitCoin.

Here are some of my sites (not bitcoin - I just found out 5 or so days ago.  This is more of a portfolio): (obsolete, the site is more of a record of what I was doing about 3 years ago.) (unfinished, 2 years old, word of mouth is where I've been getting my actual web work.)

I don't do music anymore, mostly programming and design stuff these days Smiley

Also, a footnote, I'm glad to have gotten in this forum before the "door closes". Wink
