Bitcoin: An Idea Worth Spending

Middle of June. Stumbled upon Bitcoin while Googling about copper pennies and getting 200% return on them. Decided to forego that nonsense and invest in Bitcoin. If I wanted to, I could search my history and tell you the first article I've ever read about Bitcoin. When I found this forum, I read no less than 20 hours worth of threads/posts before becoming a member. Back when I was 16, I caught my first chicken and...oops! Wrong forum.

Might have been a year rather than 9 months, but I cannot remember so I went 'conservative'.  I always start by building such things from source which is usually a bit of an undertaking for things which are only tested on Linux, and was pre-occupied with other things so I did not pursue Bitcoin at the time and it fell off my radar.  I would feel pretty bad about it, but I suspect I would not have sold a substantial portion at the peak and would be about where I am now anyway even if I would have gotten heavily into it near the start of 2011.  But one never knows.  One way or another I am confident that I would NOT have lost anything to MyBitcoin no matter what the circumstances.

Another interesting question: How long until you bought/mined your first coins?

I had heard of bitcoin around April and bought my first coins in May.

That is a good question. Took me about 24 hours.

4 months ago.
First heard Bitcoin from this Chinese article : "The most dangerous money in history: Bitcoin"
http://www.infzm.com/content/61130
"一个神秘的创始人,一群狂热的志愿者,创造了一种前所未有的没有中央发行机构的网络货币:比特币(Bitcoin's Chinese name). 有人盛赞它是货币的未来,也有人担心这是一场庞氏骗局,还有人担心它毁于政府的围剿."
Got so excited!
After learn some,  buy some (10 BTC @ $15),
decided to mine coins.  
It came to now.
NEVER SOLD A SINGLE COIN.

Btw, who's alinvain ?

BW's reply by proxy:

It was almost a year ago...A Sunday morning, which I remember so well...Ed was making breakfast, as he always does on that day as we were getting ready for Unity...He had that twinkle in his eyes, which always made me want to go back to...I'm getting all weeping eye now just thinking about it...Anyway, I was on The Google researching some fund new project to get involved in when I came across Bitcoin...I got so excited, I spilled my OJ, which Ed so kindly cleaned up (what a sweetheart), then proceeded to explain to Ed what I just learned three minutes prior...He quickly grasp the concept, as he's good at seeing the whole picture (kiss, kiss) and, within five minutes, two new Internet TV shows were spermed spawn...The rest is history...We hosted a successful Bitcoin Expo in NYC and Pattaya became my Waterloo...Viva el Bitcoin (that was Ed)...

April 2010, while researching information bottlenecks. I think I found it on Sourceforge/Freshmeat... not sure if there was a git repository yet? Actually spent too much time researching Ven?!?! Came back in late November and have been amazed ever since.
