I just sent 10 and some change as I mentioned I would on the other thread.

I hope that by using some random change, I will be able to track somewhat where my money went if you guys publish some of this info in the system you are cooking up (without giving away more of my anonymity than I desire.)

If the project does not fly for whatever reason, I would request that my contribution go to pay off anyone commissioned to do work on behalf of the project (like a printer), followed by reimbursing anyone who outlaid real money (for hosting or whatever) followed by anyone who did a degree of coding or significant grunt work.

I'll putter around with IRC.  The last time I tried it was '97-ish.  I found it mostly full of channels with a single participant waiting for some kid to stop by for sex chat or something.  I moved on to usenet and never looked back.

Some of the biggest appeals of Bitcoin to me are:

 - not 'debt-based' (same family as physical PM's in this regard.)

 - no barriers to transfer/movement (PM's suffer in this regard for operational reasons.)

It may (or may not) be worth seeing if they could be shoe-horned in.

I like the 'experiment' term.  Truth in advertising.

I personally am not sure at this point that I would lobby to 'end the fed, end the banks' at least without some pretty careful consideration.  Certainly I would like to see some significant re-structure in the power and influence that they have in pretty much all of our societies, but it's not (necessarily) the same thing.  I may choose to not make it a centerpiece of the front page and consider it to be potentially a little bit over the top,  but have no serious dispute about doing so.

I tend to agree. End the Fed/Banks has a negative/anarchist taste to it. While I suspect that many here feel that way it wouldn't hurt to keep a more positive connotation. Something like 'you know you don't have to use fiat, use Bitcoin instead'...

I am throwing together an accounting page to track deposits and disbursements (if I am to manage disbursements). For now you can view incoming funds on BBE at http://blockexplorer.com/address/18E7852e1q3UFHjyNwddzydJ4uv7ZY2t7b

From your signature links, appears that you are an advocate of advocating gambling as the more productive use of other's time. Good luck with that when you face the transition to the new paradigm......

My 5 btc contribution to the Wall Street Occupation has been sent, and I request it be returned to 1Q2driP1FjjnSymfXPWkKtx3wpjSScxFzm  if the project does not proceed.

Card Design so far


Yifu said to send him the grungy background effect so it also may be applied to here for consistency

also rename the thread to [WIP], it's not exactly for donations, though pledging is possible for this.

p.s.
might not be necessary due DPI limitations that when printed: won't be visible anyways.

This is not as big of a deal to me as I make it out to be.  If you guys think you can get something going in time for the occupy wallstreet thing, then by all means focus on that.  But I'll appreciate whatever efforts you (and whoever else) can make in this area.

I see little reason to hope that scammers and other associated low-life will not continue to be well represented in the Bitcoin community for as far out as the eye can see.  For that reason I do believe that it would be a big positive for a system such as this to have well implemented transparency mechanisms and that is why I've mentioned it several times and do so again here.

I have some hope that the system will become effective and remain healthy and can be used over and over to help draw people into the Bitcoin user community.  (Part of the reason I think this is such a good idea is that it can be tunned and targeted quite effectively.  Almost like Spear Phishing one could say.)

---

On a similar vein, memorydealers, if you are reading this, I have no idea what happened to the 3 BTC I donated to one of the earlier 'charity' efforts which was escrowed by Bruce (or at least that was the initial plan.)  I was to humiliated to see if there was any accounting or follow-up.  If that wallet is still kicking around and funded and in your control, I'm happy if you remove the 3 BTC and use it toward this cause.

Here's the current landing page design...



For the purpose of this campaign it is not "us, the bitcoiners and them the #OccupyWallStreeters", so I would change the tone more to "We are #OccupyWallStreet with a good mean of protest at hands".

Donated, don't want my btc back, I want this to see this the light of day is all.   Even if not in time for OccupyWallStreet, these cards should be made and given out, ready for any event Bitcoin might be relevant.
