Awesome Stephen, thanks for sharing  Grin

You're welcome.

I now see there is a Youtube version of the same video now as well:
 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_U18FG3ZAno


I was looking to see if I could see the firstbits for the 8.846 BTC transaction so that I could see how much fee was paid. 

That would be a good comparison ... since the restaurant takes credit card as well, how much was saved by the restaurant for accepting bitcoins versus VISA/Mastercard/AMEX.

I think the transaction had 0 fees

Kashmir's Forbes photo doesn't do her justice. She's got a Tea Leoni's dark eyed sister thing going on.
