I just posted a new "idea" for discussion on the TED website... Bitcoin and it's ramifications seem perfect for the TED audience and I imagine many people would be quite interested to see a TED talk on this. I'm approaching it from a "how could this effect the developing world as it relates to globalization" angle.

I'd encourage you to post your comments:

the reason why so many of you fail at promoting bitcoin and end up doing the exact opposite and fucking it over, is because people need to get to it on their own, like it's the best kept secret ever, which in some ways it still is. It's the lucrativeness that bring people to it, not some bullshit marketing or advertising
All it needs is people who accept bitcoin and face to face word of mouth, by people that know what they are talking about. 

the way you guys go about doing this shit, has the S's (schemer, scammer and spammer) written all over it.

They did remove the conversation! I got an email saying it was "too self-promotional." I've written them back and will update here if they respond.

If I had posted there ten years ago about how VoIP protocol might change the way the the world talks to each other, would they have removed it?! How is Bitcoin different?

"too self-promotional."

Textbook definition of ironic actually, considering Bitcoin is decentralized P2P.

(My guess would be that an admin belongs to the "Bitcoin is a pyramid scheme" crowd)

1) Did you actually read the convo I had opened at TED?

2) If so, how could you possibly have perceived that as "spammy"??

The convo was totally appropriate, given TED's audience and demographics. The entire thesis was how Bitcoin may change economic relationships in poor countries. I understand some on these forums have spammed promotion... but I don't, and this wasn't.
