Most places will say "what's that?" to which I tell them "visit www.BitcoinTraining.com for more info - I think you might like it." The worst they can say is "no" and then you can decide if you want to continue doing business with them.

Here's an example: I'm using a "form submission to email" service. I've asked them the bitcoin question above. If they say "no" then I will move my business to www.FormMail.com which does accept bitcoin for payment. Try offering bitcoin for every payment you make - it's a great way to introduce it to more people and businesses.

Anybody else have any ideas that have worked for you?

Satoshi is no god. He did not come down from the mountain with 10 golden rules engraved in stone for no one to question.

I was living in Las Vegas shortly after the Waco incident happened. There was this guy, who played poker in the rooms I played in, that wore a slew of Waco buttons. He was referred to as the Waco Wacko. I never teased him, nor joined in many conversations about him. But one day I spoke to him. And you know what? He was relatively normal. He just so happened to wear his belief system on his person--daily. Fast forward to today. I (we) am/are the new Waco Wacko(s). And proud to be (t)here.





Maybe I should have use this image over at the thread I just started on How to Make Bitcoin Sexy. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=37390.0
