I spent some bitcoin and boy do I regret it. Let other people spend, it looks like 2014 will see $300-$400 million in actual sales transaction via bitcoin now that the whole porn industry, Zynga, etc., are on it. I'll sit tight and watch bitcoin hit $40,000 on the back of other people's spending and liquidity proofing thank you very much.

always buy back what you spent

Anyone know if Bitbrew is still in operation? I tried buying some coffee but never got any confirmation. I hope I didn't just waste some coins...

Wine bottle cooler fridge for $100-ish from Overstock!

I will be using them from now on for all my Amazon.com-like purchases (if possible)

I saw in a little forum, the idea that the Bitcoin client should be changed so that people could attach specific property to specific bitcoins. I think that the idea was to make the bitcoins redeemable in only that property or kind of property. Something like this might start to drag Bitcoin into being used as real, spendable money.

Raspberry Pi!

Why would anyone buy a ras-pi when they could bet a beaglebone black?  Oh well.  To answer my own question, maybe noone selling beaglebone blacks takes BTC?  Yet.

Just bought another (25gh) miner. With a combination of bitcoins and my fees for fixing things (also collected in bitcoins)

I've been thinking: I repair watches (1860-1930 pocket watches especially) and a cleaning is normally $150 (where I take it apart and everything). Jewelers charge $500+ and send the thing out to a chop shop. So I will do this for bitcoin; where is a good place to advertise this (say .15btc for a cleaning and service)?

You should actually do a website for that and a dedicated facebook page.  Then get the links on here and other such sites.
I have a close friend who repairs vintage radios and he makes a mint there are so many collectors out there.

Although hoarding bitcoins and not spending them might make you more money, if people don't start using them to buy things the value is not going anywhere and bitcoin will just become an inflated stock taken over by an alt-coin that embraces spending.

it could be very useful as an off shore tax haven that can be stored in your brain even if the market decided not to use it as a currency.

If one can not confer upon another a right which he does not himself first possess, by what means does the state derive the right to engage in behaviors from which the public is prohibited?

That's one theory.  Precious metals and a lot of other valuable and 'successful' things kind of argue against that though.

Another theory is that if everyone is using the global persistent block chain for everything all of the time, the nature of the Bitcoin network will change in ways that would make the solution lose a lot of the features that many of us value.  Like, say, being being widely distributed on an infrastructure level (and thus, quite robust and hard to manipulate.)

To me the best of both worlds is to have Bitcoin (or something like it) have it's current highly distributed strengths while a plethora of alternates service the global consumer load and rest their value on how much BTC they are associated with (among other things.)

Bitcoin has some design issues and hitorical baggage which will make it hard to compete with purpose oriented alternates in various spheres (such as privacy, latency, etc) anyway and if it tries it will probably fail and eventually become a two-time loser.

In the mean time it is of value to try to push to the limits of the block size and start evaluating the impacts of transaction fees so it is great to see you trying to sell trinkets for BTC and I wish you the best of luck with it.
