every Bitcoin conference is reason to go to the shops near by and ask if they would take bitcoins. This happened before and is quite natural for our community.
Now there are protests at Wallstreet. They ask for all kind of donations and now also accept bitcoins that go I don't know where.

But that's a one time thing that people will not really recognize from outside our community. I was wondering if it would be a good idea to go through their list of food deliveries and ask them one by one if they accept bitcoins offering to buy some pizza and add them to our wiki if they do.

I would honestly not go and take the burden of calling 40 shops, explain bitcoin to 10 of them while the others just shout at me only to be allowed to go through the hassle of getting one of them started to accept my bitcoins, pay him 10BTC and kindly add him to the wiki.

... but ...

We could make a business out of that. An escrow that accepts donations for such a project. Promoters can post proof that a new shop accepts bitcoins and reclaim the checkpot for that. At the escrow you can define how your payment ought to be treated: immediate payment or distributed over the next x months.

Good idea?

from what I hear there is plans to do this in new york especially for the #occupywallstreet event. last news was Yifu and crew getting the list of supportive resturants/venues that GA currently has credit ties with so they may buffer bitcoins to there.
