I'm so jealous.  Seems like a kick ass time for people who are really into Bitcoin right now, fucking wish I could be there Sad

true, I'm sorry I couldn't make it out to New York for the first one but I hope to attend future ones.   I could definitely make it to one if it were in Austin, TX.  I think a  bitcoin conference in Austin would do well, if google trends is to be trusted.

Can you tell me the step by step process of how people paid?

For instance:

1. They scanned a QR code.
2. Opened the Android wallet app
3. Sent the bitcoins

How were they confirmed?
or did they use bitpay?

I need to know every step you can think of so I can get an idea of how I will start accepting bitcoins for my business

Meze Grill had printed out a unique QR code for the day, it was posted right at the check-out. After ordering food, the cashier rang me up and told me the price in Bitcoin (was 0.87 btc I think). Then I opened my Android wallet, scanned the QR, and sent .87. I showed the cashier that it had sent and he trusted me enough to let me go after that without waiting for confirmations.

I don't know what software they were using behind the counter, or how they did the btc calculation... it was all just smooth and effortless.

"Proof of concept" for brick and mortar retail is now an understatement in my mind. And this is all done without any specially designed POS system for Bitcoin... so it can only get easier.

And yes, a Bitcoin meal tastes way better than a Federal Reserve Note meal.

How did the BTC price compare to the actual USD of the meal?
Was it exactly the same? Did he add tax? Did he add "insurance" or an ".65% exchange fee" to the BC total?

I see this as a great interview on OnlyOneTV. Bruce Wagner interviewing Marwan Salem of Meze Grill on the smoothness of accepting Bitcoin during the course of the Expo.

Austin? Moscow? If the selection of Thailand and Amsterdam are anything to go by, I'm guessing Las Vegas is somewhere on the list... :-D

Depending on cost, we may try to attend atbleast one of those, or the cruise...

I agree!

By the way, here's a much more up-to-date picture of New Zealand at the moment...

What the he*ck!!! You were talking good about the conference (as you should), but then you suddenly swap sides and call the system a "Piece of Shit" (POS)! You are out of control, mister.

Dunno if that's a joke or not. POS = point of sale (also).
