I've only discovered Bitcoin a few days ago. I was shocked to learn that it's been around for more than two years without me hearing about it. I'm your typical LAMP programmer who spends all his free time in cyberspace reading about currency, the federal reserve, anarchism, technology and stateless societies. How it took me this long to learn about Bitcoins is really perplexing.
Once I heard of Bitcoin, I spent a while to understand how it works. I had to read and re-read explanations to really figure it all out. Since popularity is one of the major hurdles to get over for Bitcoin, and because it can be hella confusing for the layman, ya'll need a easily consumable video explanation for the masses.
I don't know if this topic has been pursued before, but "1/29 Explainers" could help immensely. They basically take really difficult concepts and turn them into simple videos to share with the public. This page shows a lot of their work:http://www.129films.com/explainers/
Just a thought.
EDIT: Maybe you could pay them with a pooling of some of your BTCs :-)
i have never needed a video to learn how the national mint puts the cotton into a banknote, or needed to know the chemical formulae for the inks they use. average joe does not need a technical long winded explanation, they need fast laymens explanation.
they need simple english. EG
not: "bitcoin is a peer-to-peer decentralized public ledger using multiple cryptography standards to ensure a trustless system of exchange"
but:"bitcoin is a ledger stored on thousands of PC's. no single person can change it as its all checked and verified using encryption"
just like going to the hospital
people hate hearing "you have a certificated deposit on the aortic valve causing a Myocardial infarction"
but understand: "small lump of calcium in your heart gave you a heart attack"
