From the videos I have seen from the Texas conference so far I get the feeling that there is a bad vibe throughout the whole conference.
Earlier conferences that has been held in Europe and other places, you get the feeling that everyone is in wonderland and everything is up for grabs.
Also with all the lawyers and legislators coming in, talking about how we (the community) have to expect this and that from government ect.
Sometimes I get the feeling I'm being talked down to as if I was some kind of clever but naughty kid.
Its just a bad vibe to the whole thing.
What do you think?

Yeah, I think Texas has a lot to lose if the dollar tanks. The global elitist banksters are catching on that their days are numbered and they think they can stop it by regulating Bitcoin. Or at least stall it long enough to get the totalitarian dictatorship police state locked in. I think Texas is a main hub of that action. Unless they secede.

As a native New Yorker, I think Texas has always had a bad vibe. I've hated that place since it spewed forth that halfwit George W. Bush.

Austin is cool, though. We should save those people, they are not gunslinging caveman troglodytes like the rest of the South.

Remember Aaron Swartz, a 26 year old computer scientist who died defending the free flow of information.

US government is not afraid of bitcoin at all. They could crash this tiny market to sub-decimal levels on a whim.

we are at stage where it can easily collapse (and government may want it too) ... or government may want it to "kind of" survive so they can milk it for taxes

That's just Texas.

Maybe a lot of them lost money to MtGox and they just were in a bad mood.

Free Talk Live was broadcasting live from the TX BTC Conference last week and they were reporting on how successful it was. You can check the podcasts from last week and see for yourself.

Ah coastal liberals, you can always count on them for making the most racist statements anywhere, while simultaneously talking about how open minded they are and how evil it is stereotype groups of people.

Think again.  Texas has a stronger Libertarian streak than most other states.  Where are all the elitist banksters operating from?  Well from this guys state:

Texas doesn't have Ben Lawsky actively researching the best ways to regulate Bitcoin.

Freedom is a state of mind, and then Bitcoin comes along.....

texans would have a bad vibe.

they live near BFL. and were unable to visit the company to get units they ordered
they live near trendon shavers and were unable to slap him across th face with a wet fish to get their funds back.

most of the texans are all mouth but no action thus their negativities grow in their mind because they dont act out on what they have opinions about.

apart from the daily onslaught of newbie scammers in the community. i love bitcoins, and i know it has a big future

I DO NOT TRADE OR ACT AS ESCROW ON THIS FORUM EVER.
Please do your own research & respect what is written here as both opinion & information gleaned from experience. many people replying with insults but no on-topic content substance, automatically are 'facepalmed' and yawned at

New York is so much bitcoin friendly with its bitlicence scam. Wall Streets has nothing to hide or lose with bitcoin taking over.

That is why the CORE name of Occupy Wall Streets was called Occupy My CowBoy, Texas being the main hub of finance and all... Grin

LUTZ Of course you would think liberals have your best intentions in mind ( either party really for that matter ). I also love how you coastal people think your so brilliant and the best of the best. You shit stinks just the same as everyone elses.

I was at the conference and I thought it was great.

Personally, I was experiencing a bit of physical discomfort - it was colder than I was expecting (March in Austin should be WARM!) and my allergies were knocking me on my ass (this I should have anticipated and prepared for).

Despite my sub-optimal state, I made some interesting contacts, caught up with some friendly and familiar faces, and left ready to throw myself into a dozen more new and exciting projects.

Still around.

I was one of the speakers.

I didn't get a bad vibe...it felt exciting and optimistic like any other Bitcoin conference.

I had a lot of fun and made some new friends.

I appreciate that.

I won't pass judgement as I wasn't there myself, but I realize that my oppinion might be tainted by the fact that I think the right thing
for bitcoin is to continue growing from below.
Thousands of small businesses is a stronger scheme for bitcoin than a few multi-national investor groups owning the lot,
even if that means a lower marketshare and coin price.
Then again, I have only seen a few videos so far.

Yeah, like Afghanistan.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.
