It's easy to see that there are two viewpoints... clearly defined...
Those who attended.
Those who did not attend.
It was two completely different experiences.
If you did not attend, I'm sure it was about as lame as it gets.
If you did attend, as many will attest to, and have told me, "It was the most exciting conference I have ever attended." ....is the typical comment I hear.
Two people looking in opposite directions... who think they are describing the same thing.
Anyway... I think it will always be a completely different experience for those who do not attend, unfortunately. After all, if it were the same.... There would be no benefit in getting together in person at all.... Right?
We will do better when it comes to streaming. As it was happening even.... I was very upset that that was not happening right. But, we did the best we could with the limited resources and help we had.
Please don't ever expect one of these conferences to be the same experience from home on tv.... as it would be attending one.
Also, I did not create the conferences for the media. I created them for the developer and user community. And, in that context, it was an enormous success... as 100% of the people here who attended
are attesting to.
As I said, we don't really need any more media attention at this very moment. Those of you who think media = profit are so wrong.
We don't need media attention. We need positive
And we will get plenty of that... Once the developers finish all the projects they are working on right now.
The Conference was a tremendous success in aiding those developers... by allowing them to meet, connect, and begin working closely with others... they can now work synergistically with each other more.... More.... Better... Faster.
As for the two big announcements I had.... I suppose I should have said what happened. One of them got tabled. I decided, after getting more and more feedback on the idea... that I should postpone announcing it. It's just too big.... and too risky... for the moment. But that idea might come back. We'll see.
The other --- second --- big announcement was... three more Conferences.... and a World Cruise. Personally, I think that IS HUGE. Don't you? ( Please only answer if you attended this Conference.... so you have some real world frame of reference. )
Since then, I have already said that I am now working on adding 10 other cities to that list.... 12 Cities Worldwide in Total. Yes, this is going to be enormous. But I don't need to tell you. I'll show
you. You'll see. I love a challenge.
As for The Bitcoin Show
... I wasn't going to say anything... But... I'll have a little surprise for you.... within the next 2 days... Stay tuned.
