Hi people,

I'm a very seasoned Drupal developer (used it since 2004), and open for work on Drupal sites for bitcoin. I don't do graphics design, please hire me if you have performance issues with your site, want custom modules, or even transfering a photoshop design to a Drupal theme. My Drupal profile: http://drupal.org/user/143552

Resume available upon request: berend@pobox.com

I also run a Drupal hosting site: https://www.xplainhosting.com/

Doesn't accept bitcoins yet, but hopefully one day!

My girlfriend is able accept Btc for her therapy services.  She is able to do video counceling over Cisco Jabber (much higher quality than Skype, requires registration with gatekeeper service, available to any of her clients when needed).

She also provides coaching, nutrition services, hypnotherapy (in office only at this time), and some 'woo' products and services (flower essences, tuning forks).

My goal is to help her build her client base, get Btc more accepted. this is the first place I've listed her services...

I run a small animation studio and would like to accept Bitcoins for projects.

I have 6 years of work experience in 3D modeling , in creative as well as technical aspects.
I work in Autodesk MAYA, and am willing to do some freelance work for BTC.

I also know quite a bit of the Maya Python API, so i could even write some simple scripts / plugins.

I've been monitoring bitcoins for some time, but am only now seriously investing. Am currently moving out of precious metals and buying up bitcoins. I have decided to bet the farm and invest heavily in bitcoin mining and speculation.

I've been looking at the bitcoin world for a while. I'm thinking about the bitcoin world like I thought about the ebay world when it first started. I ran an ebay auction business, because people were nervous about signing up to ebay, dealing with strangers on the Internet, and frankly, people are lazy. It's easier to drop off a bunch of stuff with me, I sell it for them, take a cut of the sales, and send them the check. I made a decent amount of money on the side until lots of these businesses started to pop up and then I shutdown and moved on.

As I talk to the common person on the street about bitcoins, here's what comes up:

1. Where do I get them? Can I get them locally? Can you get them for me?

2. What can I buy with bitcoins that I cannot buy with cash/credit today?

3. Buying bitcoins seems full of peril and I'm tying my only bank account to various unknown companies/websites.

4. How can I use bitcoins to send money back home instead of moneygram/western union/bank transfer?

I see a local arbitrage opportunity for being a bitcoin proxy, selling up the local aspect, and building up a reputation as a trusted middleman as an exchange. Eventually, it will end if/when bitcoins become much more commonplace. However, until then, it's a short term opportunity to make some money on the side. I'd guess 1-2 years is the length of the business. Yes, there are websites that do this already, but no big deal. I'm not trying to compete with them. I'm trying to tap into the majority of people who don't trust the Internet and don't trust their bank either. Basically, I'm the offline bitcoin exchange.

Item 4 intrigues me the most. There is a local 'send money home/payday loan' shop around the corner from me where I know their accountant well. They are making millions of dollars each for three people doing simple cash to wire transfers. People don't trust the Internet, so they stop by the shop and wire money home. They could do it from their bank if they had one. Lots of their customers are questionably legal immigrants or migrant workers here on short-term visas.

Another option is to become a proxy purchaser for others. Pay me bitcoins, I'll buy what you want on amazon, newegg, nordstom's, zappos, etc. The packages are shipped to me, and then I ship to you. Sounds simple. Call it personal shopping or private shopping or whatever.

Another option is for the local businesses around me to feel better about accepting bitcoins because they know I'm the local bitcoin bank. They can just exchange their bitcoins from customers to me for local cash and be done with it.

I've started looking into doing all of these, but can't get normal answers on what laws I fall under, if any. I'd rather not find out the hard way after a raid/warrant.

I like your idea of being a local bitcoin proxy. I see it lacking in where I am at now.

I am a software developer currently working on some new services exclusive to bitcoin.

I find bitcoin to be an attractive option because it does not weigh you down to multiple API's from different payment processors and is a tested system at this point.

I'm working on developing two websites (one has taken priority over the other for development purposes right now, but I hope to have both running eventually).  Both will accept Bitcoins as the main (if not only) payment method.

One is a browser RPG, will be text- and image-based, and will have a unique storyline, as well as some features that I haven't seen anywhere else before.  So far I've just been working on the backend of this, and it doesn't have any content yet, but it's starting to get close to being able to start working on content soon.  It will be free-to-play, but there will be a secondary in-game currency that can only be purchased with BTC (or similar?) which will give access to some benefits.  I hope to make the prices reasonable, or even cheap compared to other games' cash shops - I don't want to stiff my members, but I'd like to be able to pay for the server and some of my time spent on creating it.  Smiley

The second website would allow someone to avoid the ridiculous fees that are charged by cell phone carriers for SMS messages in some circumstances.  I'm being pretty vague on this one on purpose, as it is on the back burner and I have no idea when I'll be able to go back to it, or if it will even take the same shape then as I've been imagining so far.  If anyone has experience with both PHP and SQL (preferably MySQL) and would like to help get this back in development, feel free to PM me.
