simple tip:  don't call the Bitcoin Client a client.  for simple folk, its a "program" just like every other software program a non coder buys off the shelf.

less than 1 minute?

Know what a random stranger said to me in the street recently:

"Bitcoins? Didn't they get raided recently. Lost all their money."

look, i support you guys since you've done so much for the technology.  but if you're going to promote Bitcoin publicly why not hire a spokesperson who understands basic economics and the problems of the financial world who can clearly articulate why Bitcoin was invented and how it solves these same problems in layman's terms?  the money spent would yield a far greater return than trying to get friendly "regulation" which is a useless pursuit.

He is not so wrong to talk about the Mtgox crash accident. If checking the data of the new forum members of day by day, we can reasonably assume that trend that people joining the forum changed so sharp around the 20110619 and this must be because the Mtgox crash accident. 

Maybe some people have heard nothing about bitcoin since they hear the bitcoin exchange rate < 1 cent/btc, and talking about it maybe good.

he can briefly mention it.  but then downplay it with a massive positive spin that Bitcoin itself never got hacked and that the price went right back to where it was.  of course we all know where the price is now but it isn't solely b/c of that one incident.  its here b/c of a variety of other incidents. 

instead he goes into this long drawn out explanation of how the hacker executed the ploy which scares the hell out of the average listener who doesn't understand Bitcoin let alone how exchanges work.

look, he's just trying to be honest, i understand that.  but this is Sun Tzu financial warfare that we're engaging in and he and Amir best wake up to that fact and start presenting Bitcoin as if its the greatest thing the world has ever known.  it is.

Don; ask yourself how would Donald Trump present Bitcoin if he was a firm believer?  then do it that way.
