I went to a friend's wedding tonight and introduced bitcoin to 6 people. Here are some stats:

1) Three people (half) seemed not to be very interested. These people ask questions like "what's the point?" They are consumers, and are not interested in bitcoin because they can't buy anything with it that they can't buy with dollars. They are not investors or entrepreneurs.

2) The other three new people seemed pretty interested and told me they plan to Google it.

3) Of the interested people, one seemed particularly interested and twice said he plans to buy some.

4) No one I talked to had already heard of bitcoin except people I had already told about it. And these are people that are not technically illiterate. So bitcoin is pretty far from mainstream yet.

Awesome we need more people like you! Just having them say " ill Google it" is a great start! I agree with you though at least here in the U.S , Bitcoin has yet to be mainstream.

The new "PR Guide" (really needs it's own thread) in the Alex Jones thread is a must read: http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=31005.msg390703#msg390703

Yeah, I've shared bitcoin with my family, gf and a few friends.  I get lots of different reactions and a lot of the same questions.  There is still a huge potential for more adopters out there.

Most of the people I tell about it really don't know how to react (ie. don't care), but I have a few friends that actually congregate and discuss the bitcoin almost regularly.
I just emailed an uncle of mine today that seems like he'd be interested in some business ventures with the bitcoin actually.
