You take chicken, I take egg then.  I don't see the innovation as present until things are generally overall more secure, until then more and more I keep seeing Bitcoin as something really neat, but not the final word in digital currency.

I am sure that you are right because your porn is a lot better than the Woolongfinancial stuff.

Maybe there'd be greater adoption if there was a PornCoin blockchain.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

Anyone who is crazy enough to think he can change the world, is actually someone who can change the world. - Steve Jobs

I 100% agree with you on the fact that Bitcoin wasn't built to be tiptoeing around the politically correctness to sustain itself. The P2P decentralized aspect took care of the issue and gave the power to keep bitcoin running to the people that use it.  

It was indeed created to to challenge the current status quo and this failing financial system that is starting to collapse around us. It's wasn't bitcoin's fault that people are too afraid to say it like it is and avoid the issue out of fear. What is written in the genesis block isn't just some random musing, but a direct confirmation of what you are suggesting imo.

People fear being involved deeply in something that have a chance to fail. Why? Because losers don't take chances. And most of the world is made up of losers.
People also fear the unknown. The future of bitcoin is full of unknowns such as upcoming laws, not being backed by anything tangible, and etc, and many won't admit that they are too fearful to take a chance.

Winners don't care about what others tell them because they know deep inside their heart that they are right. It's this inextinguishable thirst for change that brings about inventions like Bitcoin to come along in the first place.

As another human being who also strive to challenge the status quo of today, I applaud you for standing up firmly on your beliefs and hope noone can ever discourage you to do otherwise. I am positively sure that thoughts you shared on your video weren't too far from what the creator of bitcoin had in mind before creating it in the first place.

Well said. You are right about taking chances. Nowadays most people go to the casino or buy lottery tickets on a fools errand. It's better to go with what you believe you understand to be the right thing to do. Even if you fail, you know you did the right thing.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

I feel if mass focus was put on Beertokens https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=9493.0 a lot more PornCoin will be going on.

In this video, I'll briefly describe my objective to get Bitcoin out in the mainstream and how we should plan to get there.
So are you going to be organizing this ad campaign?  I seem to remember you trying something like that previously, collecting donations, and then never actually doing anything.  Then when someone asked for their donation back over the forums you got upset that they didn't PM you politely to ask for the money you took.

Why would this time be any different?

I think it would help if you set up a table with one column showing Bitcoin's strengths, the other weaknesses, put it public where people can give suggestions to add to the list, then rank them in order of importance, and have the group come up with ideas on how to address the issues. Your video was a good start, but it sort of just throws those thoughts out there without an easy way to see or organize them. If you want to take charge and help with that (and on this trolly forum we need all the help we can get), why not post a read-only copy of such a table in public somewhere (Google Docs?), start a thread where people can post comments, and screen those based on what you think is important.

For the record, I completely agree with you that very low fees and faster transactions don't compare to the convenience of whipping out and swiping plastic. Especially when it's still such a pain to refill your Bitcoin account. Also, most benefits of Bitcoin seem to be geared towards merchants, but most people out there are consumers, and customers are always right (even when they use 2.5% fee credit cards). BUT, I also don't think getting people angry or scared is necessarily the right answer. Sadly, most people out there just don't give a shit no matter what. Just look at the number of people who vote.

Hopefully, a more organized brainstorm of ideas will help bring out even better things to concentrate on, and you seem to be trusted enough, or at least well known enough, to be able to attract enough people to yourself and lead this thing.

Sounds eerily familiar to many Bitcoin ventures: http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sfc/cpg/2637497872.html
