The interview was great.

I also listened to the part after that though, and that was… weird. They had some good points on the smoking ban, but there were callers who had some good points too, which they basically swept under the rug, or misquoted, or refused to interpret in a neutral way. And then afterwards they call the callers fascists.

I'm a little disappointed that no one mentioned that you can buy coffee with bitcoins but I put up the youtube video at BitBrew anyway.

Fully understand this sentiment.

My ego was waiting to hear spend bitcoins mentioned too. Actually, Mark did mention it, but as I'm no longer a paid advertiser just said "I used a third party service". Smiley

I will post the whole thing on youtube shortly.
For those who heard it,   how did it go?

Also,  if someone can make a banner for weusecoins.org

I will change the Memory Dealers banner on this page to the Bitcoin banner.

http://www.freetalklive.com/studio





I wonder if they keep stats on the banners, would be cool to see if we got any clicks yet

how long will the banner be up there?

The banner will be up there for as long as I keep paying.  I suspect this will be years and years.


To Spendbitcoins.com, bitbrew.net, and others,  I'm sorry I did not have a chance to plug you.
I tried to plug as many things as I could,  but it is hard to remember everyone durring a fast paced interview.

I think a good next step for everyone is to visit www.freetalklive.com, take a look at their sponsors on the right hand side of the page,  see if any of them have something you want to buy,  and contact them to see if they will accept Bitcoins as payment.
If they agree,  please be sure to actually purchase the item from them.  This is a great way to get more shops to accept Bitcoin.


I really want the 50 caliber air-gun their sponsor sells!

Haha. Sorry if it sounded like I was offended, I know you are well networked and I'm just glad you had the chance to plug bitcoin. My ego survived just fine. Smiley

I listened to the entire interview, and I would say: Job well done.

If there's anything I'd mention it's the comparison about the worlds 500 fastest supercomputers and the bitcoin network.

From my limited understanding it's a bit like comparing apples and oranges.

Good thing you talked about privacy and not about avoiding taxes.

The callers were a bit strange, and the last one was blown of when mentioning irc and bitcoin-otc,
I would think most people would be smart enough to figure it out? So it was not needed to dismiss
him out of hand.

But again: God job, and thanks for taking your time to the benefit of the community, Roger of Memory Dealers!

No, I agreed with them on that. IRC is some scary chatroom for nerds, to most non-computer people, and the whole stuff with GPG for bitcoin-otc? Forget it.

From my limited understanding it's a bit like comparing apples and oranges.
The way I see it, if people hear that Bitcoin can in theory be attacked with enough computing power, they might think that supercomputers are a big threat to Bitcoin. Supercomputers are not optimized for the kind of workload Bitcoin mining requires, therefore they would be "relatively" slow at hashing.

The Bitcoin network is indeed more powerful than supercomputers, but only if you compare the Bitcoin mining performance. Since this is the only thing that matters in the context of Bitcoin security I think the comparison is valid.

Of course the comparison as an argument for Bitcoin's security is a bit moot, because an adversary that has extensive access to top-notch supercomputer-power could probably amass enough integer processing power as well - just not with most of the existing supercomputer architectures.

For the record: There are actually integer-supercomputers as well. These are basically just a huge amount of amassed GPUS, and they don't really pose a threat to the bitcoin network (They need MOAR GPUS! Smiley), but there is scientific interest in GPU superclusters for molecular simulations, weather simulations, etc.
