Just looked at the list of speakers here: http://conference.bitgroups.org/

Rick Falkvinge will also speak, Amir Taaki, too and other well-knowns like Vladimir.

David G.W. Birch (is a Director of Consult Hyperion) came as a surprise to me, very interesting indeed!

The list really makes me want to go... but I probably wont be able to. I hope the online coverage will be good.

Max Keiser is a big time addition. I have to start checking plane ticket prices, it's starting to get really tempting to go there. It's not even far, I live in Finland. And I've been to Prague before. It's a nice city and the prices are cheap.

Quote from: maxkeiser
we'll be there bitcoin Prague, reserve shares in our film of the event: goo.gl/iey68

interesting... they're planning to make a film (26 minutes, news) about the bitcoin confererence... are looking for $900. Too bad one can't fund via bitcoin.

I wonder if Max is funding all his shows this way and what kind of film this will be...?

Great speaker line-up!  I'm glad we are building a really good foundation instead of just hyping up the price of bitcoins.

Interesting.  Keiser/Herbert seem to have been fairly mute on Bitcoin after some early and generally supportive mentions.  I sense that it alienates some of their PM-centric friends and detracts from the 'buy silver' campaign (by competing for speculative funds of course.)  Or maybe they are savvy enough to have noticed the likely decline and wanted to wait for more opportune timing so as not to tarnish their reputation (which is pretty stellar IMHO.)

This could be a fairly big deal I would suspect.  They have quite an audience at this point, and the audience is already pretty aware of and agitated about the banking shenanigans.  Also, I imagine that a fair fraction of the audience actually has both some bucks and some gonads.  If some of them took an active interest I could see it being somewhat bullish for Bitcoin.

Good points.

I'm hopeful that Keiser will help build a bridge between the precious metals camp and the Bitcoin camp. There is no need for antagonism between the two - precious metals and Bitcoin complement each other beautifully, each filling the weaknesses of the other.

Some people say that gold tends to be the best form of money.
Others say that gold is the ONLY real form of money.

The former group will be much more open to Bitcoin - as the new market entrant doesn't preclude their strongly-held beliefs. The latter group might never give Bitcoin a chance, unfortunately.  Interestingly, those who understand WHY gold is a great form of money should be able to figure out the allure of Bitcoin. The specific properties to each make them both excellent money - one sitting in your vault in the physical world, the other sitting in your computer in the digital world.

And in both cases, far better and more moral than paper certificates inscribed with the fiat stamp of government and backed by the threat of violence.

Some of the limitations of physical are part of what made me so interested in Bitcoin early on (in my actual study of it.)  At first I really didn't understand the animosity, but it seems to be primarily among the silver people and there are some real mouth-breathing day-trader caliber folk in that camp.  I don't get the sense that Bitcoin is even a term known to a lot of gold people, much less any real understanding of cryptography.

Is this just donating or do you get something back?

Max will produce a video at the event and broadcast it on his TV shows.  This will be HUGE for bitcoin, as so far he has just talked about the technology, but now he can show a large group of people actually using it.

I encourage everyone to donate $5-$25 to fund this project.  He only needs $800.  This will be a professional video from Max that can go viral, and benefit everyone in the community.

Now, this would be a whole lot easier if we could use bitcoins for that...

ok, I reserved 1 share ($5), now how do I actually buy it?

Wow, cool!!!

Another idea: we could issue shares for this movie on glbse, exchange the raised BTC for USD and successively buy shares on piratemyfilms.

comments?
