Until there is a massive adoption of Bitcoin in a paticular sector (i,e, gambling, craigslist) there will not likely be long term investors. People only seem to understand stocks and currencies of which Bitcoin is really neither. Currencies are subject to unpredictable inflation, and stocks are subject to inside information. Bitcoin is being treated like an unknown quantity with fear and doubt. This is unjustified because it is based on math. Sure there are unknown factors, but the chance of Bitcoin crashing are about the same as having a house-sized meteorite fall on your head. This game of buying and selling for short term profits will end when some visionary investors around the world get educated about the power of math.

We should organize a workshop/seminar, in some expensive ski resort or something, with a hefty entrance fee of something like $25,000. Make it invite-only. Seed some rumors Satoshi might show up.

I absolutely agree. At the very least there should be a TED talk.

I actually believe Max can put on his game face, especially if Stacy Herbert is with him. It would be funny as hell if he did throw one of his trademarked fits.

A much better fit to speak at TED (about Bitcoin that is) would be https://twitter.com/Falkvinge. Although many of his political views are debatable, he is a good speaker and he at least sounds objective.

If it weren't for proudhon and evolve, the speculation forum would be a lot more boring. Really, it would breakdown into bulls vs more bullish bulls with pictures of rockets flying all over the place. We should thank them for their tireless efforts to provide a counterargument. It's gotta be tough.

I am acutely aware that Proudhon, Evolve and Electric Mucus are the "senior bears" around bitcointalk, but I try to do my part.  And yes, at times, it is quite difficult.  I have seen SO MANY bubbles in my time though and really we are well past due for a rather major snapback correction.  SOMEONE has to say it...   *whistles past the graveyard and tilts at windmills*

There is no such thing as insider trading, as they cannot know the future with certainty either, infact insider trading is better allocation of resources faster

FUCK YEAH! He could burn some FIAT on stage.

EDIT: I'm for Rick. For anybody who has missed his talk in Prague, it's truly inspiring: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mjmuPqkVwWc

Jon Matonis would be my second choice after Keiser. Vorhees definitely knows about Bitcoin and has an educational background, but while he articulates the Bitcoin idea well, he lacks the experiential base to communicate the message to a wider audience.
