What do people think about exhibiting bitcoin at FreedomFest 2011 in Las Vegas in July?  Would that be a good venue to raise the profile of bitcoin?

Exhibitor registration isn't cheap, but we could run a bounty to gauge support for this idea:

Nice. Who would be the spokesman? Smiley

I find it quite expensive though.... $1000, is it worth that much?

There are other things we can do with 1000 USD.

Why not give a presentation instead?  That seems like a better option since Bitcoin isn't really a vendor.

It all depends on the target audience, the number of them, and the potential adoption rate we can get from that.

The rate of return (ROI) may be high or low, depending on those factors. 1000 $ can be worth it if the above factors will be promising enough.

er... handing out thousands of usb sticks... that's gonna be even more expensive than an $1000 official booth. :|

how about a printed pamphlet with some brief intro info pulled from the wiki... some links (including the bitcoin faucet), and call it a day on the distributed materials?

that's why I said "over to each of (or some of) the attendants", so that we could cap it.

Anyway, it was more of a brainstorming anyway. Still, we may want to do this in a limited fashion
"the first 100 get the USB stick with bitcoins in a wallet "the USBitwallet", or we can create a raffle that a few of the attendants can win lets say 10 USB sticks with 50, 45, ... 5 bitcoins in it.

My experience says that if you give people something real into their hads, they are more easily convinced.

Media attention from the blogosphere and msm is will get us farther attest cost.    We can thank slashdot for being where we are today.  I'm waiting for the day when zero hedge links to bitcoin.

Agree on zero hedge.

Sorry if I missed this before in another thread, but:

Did someone already try to get ZeroHedge accepting BTC donations?
