Do listen to trolls, leave, wait on sidelines.... please!

The critical mass is in anyway.... now what many of us need is some quiet time to mine some coins. A quiet year or two would be a godsend.

I believed in Bitcoin, I really did, but there is no denying that the world isn't ready for something like this in the current form. It needs to be dumbed the fuck down because the average Joe is thick as shit.

I don't think it has to be dumbed down at all. The 'Average Joe' has no idea how the Dollar, Euro, Franc, or any other type of money works, yet he knows it does and accepts its use. All Bitcoin needs to do is inspire confidence to be successful. The only way to do that is to get it into more widespread use. Dumbing it down is not a prerequisite for its adoption.

Actually the average Joe does understand how dollars work: you keep them in a little thing in your pocket and then you had them to people to pay for stuff.

Bitcoins require a "wallet" that is really some sort of mysterious "file" that can't be found.  Normal people cannot find files unless they are on the desktop or, for more sophisticated users, in the "My Documents" folder.  Your bitcoin wallet is stored in a HIDDEN folder.  Normal people will never be able to find their wallet files, even if they were forced to use bitcoin.

To buy with bitcoins you have to use "addresses" that are really long and often changing.  That is pretty hard for a regular person to grasp.  Also they are case-sensitive.  Most people type in all caps or no caps.  Very few people use mixed case unless writing something very important.

Want to buy a 2004 Ford Taurus with bitcoin?  I live in Maryland.  Send me a private message if interested.

Surprise surprise, a two year old open source project is not ready for mainstream. News at 11. Where was Linux in 1993?

Hopefully all the clowns leave now so we can have a decent developer community again here and focus on serious stuff such as addressing its problems.

Bitcoin Core developer [PGP] Warning: For most, coin loss is a larger risk than coin theft. A disk can die any time. Regularly back up your wallet through FileBackup Wallet to an external storage or the (encrypted!) cloud. Use a separate offline wallet for storing larger amounts.

So all of your sentences are very important. And everyone else posting here. Everything we say is important. Cool.

I think your are totally underestimating the new generation.
When i was 14 i was on the top of the ladder on Diablo2 and i was selling my items on ebay.
my gril friend has 0 geek blood in her and she has a nice little farm on farmville
she can even log into her online bank.
she thinks bitcoin is stupid. but that's probably because iv been talking to her about bitcoin to much  Tongue

i'm from Canada and i don't know anyone that can't understand simply things like hitting a send button and pasting in an address

Your comment struck me as particularly astute.

The bitcoin community needs to mature.  The software needs to mature.  The tools need to mature.  The product needs to mature.  People need to start using coins, spreading them around the early adopters, working out the kinks in the system.

Right now we're at the bleeding edge.  It'll take some time to transition to merely being at the cutting edge.  And despite bitcoin moving in "internet time", this will take real-world time to happen.

Beware the weak hands!

Except this isn't some project regarding a video player or mp3 encoder. This is a project surrounding software that people are investing lots of money into. You can't sell Bitcoins as the next best thing, and at the same time hide behind a this-is-open-source-it-what-do-you-expect when its convenient. Come on.

The key word is "next". Bitcoin isn't even version 1 yet, which is analogous to Linux in 1993.

Actually, Linux was quite usable in 93.  By then you had Slackware, which was an easy enough "distribution" of a functional Linux OS, complete with network stack and X11.  You no longer had to roll your own /bin/login, you could actually use Linux for developing POSIX code, for the most part -- and I did.  Ditched Interactive Unix for it, even.

Very much like bitcoin.  Sure, you can't order a pizza from Dominos and pay in bitcoin today.  But you can use it to send money around the world, today.  You can use it to get some goods and services, today.  You can even exchange it for more established currencies.

Now Linux in 92 - that was probably like Namecoin today.  Grin
