Greetings fellow bitcoiners,
Around 2 weeks ago I agreed to speak on a panel that a friend of mine said was looking for speakers. I speak at a lot of conferences and I tend to be comfortable. I expected the usual 30 to 40 person room with 3 fellow panelists and a moderator. Well the panel is today and the room is a 350 person theater so I need to get myself well versed on the state of alternate currencies by the time I leave my office in 5 hours.http://mindfocus-eorg.eventbrite.com/
This is the panel Guess which one I am
I own 500 BTC purchased at $0.70 and I have logged on 30+ hours on this forum so I am comfortable with the state of BTC- the problem is I have no idea what else is out there and I want to be prepared since the moderator will probably expect us to be conversant in all the bitcoin related stuff that is out there. I only care about bitcoins which is why I have had no interest in anything else except things like namecoin, etc that are discussed here.
My team is collaborating with certain other partners and patent holders to launch a secure mobile bitcoin wallet by the end of this year. That initiative has the working name of SpreadTrust but we are in wireframes with an internal iOS beta anticipated late in October. Our partners have issued patents that will help our product stand out and provide a rigorous level of two-factor authentication using a mobile phone. I do not want to get into specifics about that project right now because I want to save it for when we have something to show you. I also want to have our engineers prepared to answer your geeky questions because my last involvement with programming was in 1983 on an apple ][ and the language was BASIC so suffice it to say that logging into a website is the extent of my technological capabilities.
I would appreciate links to PDF's, Powerpoints, Essays, and Videos that can get me fluent in other related systems....sort of a primer on alternative currencies. I can skim pretty fast so a few links willhelp me, or even names of stuff that I can Google myself.
Thank you in advance. Please come say hi to me if you will be an attendee at this event. It is not bitcoin related but 350 people in Los Angeles could possibly be converted to our religion if I do a good job.
