Allow me to introduce to you Sam B (need to watch the whole video to get full impact): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1IiJI8b4i4M

He's energetic, personable and articulate, to name a few attributes. Moreover, besides having a loyal following, he has the name--Sam B. My only suggestion would be to change the letter B to another not-yet-agreed-upon symbol (this is in reference to him wearing the official Bitcoin T/Jacket when he's out in public).

Quoted from 4:00 in the video:

I think you might become a lot of people's guilty pleasures.

As you can see, Sam B would need a size XXX(?) T/Jacket (which is a good thing--the coin logo would be bigger):

how about Matthew Neal Wright, scam artist extraordinaire, since bitcoin is mostly about scamming other people and selling blocks of info for real life cash

Perhaps you misunderstood my intent. I'm trying to accentuate the positive of Bitcoin--not any perceived negative cognitions.

They must have just changed it to private. It's truly fixed now. I updated the link and edited the timestamp to reflect 4:00. Thank you kindly, mayabong, for bringing this to my attention.

Here's a better link to the YouTube video showcasing Sam B: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1IiJI8b4i4M&feature=related

It's at 3:59 that you'll hear this quote:
