No, definitely not. I like the first one better.

I was trolling with the last graphic of course. That thing is hideous.

Are you volunteering to help us create an ad for your magazine (I hope)?
I can't give any special rates as Bitcoin 100 is not a legally registered non-profit organization with a history etc, but I can do the design work for the advertisement for your guys (I'm also a Bitcoin 100 contributor!)

That would be great. I really don't have a knack for creative arts but would like to see this project advance. Do you have any other ideas?
Not really. Putting all my efforts into the magazine at the moment. If you guys for for an advertisement in the magazine though, I'll gladly do a design for you for the first issue.

Great, let's see what Bruno thinks and if everyone agrees with the ad idea then we can turn design over to you.

Now I have to think. I was told that there's no thinking on this BBS. Wait! That was no math, of which I've learnt that ain't true either.

Ad idea = good. Already PM'ing "The Matt" about this and offered to pay for it out of my pocket. He'll help with the minor design issues.

About the logo. Thanks for taking the incentive. First off, hate to spring this on you all, but consider wording the name Bitcoin 100 as two words oppose to just one. That said, I liked the orange logo until I saw the Bitcoin logo with the hands. I'm leaning toward that with some slight modifications of which I'll get to in another post. I'll use this post to take care of some house cleaning.

I would like to present the idea that Bitcoin100 place an ad in Matthews’s new magazine soliciting charities to take Bitcoin donations and explaining what we are. I don’t see that we have had a lot of success writing individualized letters. His magazine concept has, at least, as much potential to spread the word as the charity donation idea. Even if a charity decision maker does not read the magazine we have used some of the funds to support an idea which is bringing Bitcoin to the masses. I think that was one of the reasons to start Bitcoin100 in the first place. What do you think?

I think it's a good idea but a new, seperate address/account should be created to raise funds for it.

No need for a new account. I'll simply pay for it as outlined above.

Not as much house cleaning as I thought.

Logo:

I'm leaning on using the orange one as the header on the website bitcoin.org, albeit a different tag line. At the moment, I'm using "Where Every Bit Counts" but even that doesn't have to be written in stone.

As far as what Matthew suggested, there's some strength there after it gets it fine-tuned. I like the circle, the B, the hands (suggested they look odd, and my suggestion may come to color--was thinking about white, black, yellow, red, and we all know why). Again, that tag isn't right, though different. I'm thinking that if we had this logo with or without words, I would use just the logo part (no words) in the slide rotation on the home page of Bitcoin 100.

Here's one with the changes you mentioned for the website if you decide to use it.

Okay! I like it as it is for the header, but would you be so kind as to do a mock-up, showing what it would look like with the "B" in "Bit" as the Bitcoin sighn/symbol and the "s" in "Counts" as a dollar sign. In my mind, it'll be like new technology meets old school.

Thank you kindly for all your efforts into doing this, to date, CBH.

There is a gambling game called Bitcoin Minefield and they are thinking of donating part of their profits to a charity if the charity would accept Bitcoins.  I suggested we (Bitcoin 100) could contact them with our incentive.  One of the charities they are looking at is http://www.icbl.org, The International Campaign to Ban Landmines.

I suggest we send them a Bitcoin 100 intro letter as the game thread has already contacted them once with the idea.  See:  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=28009.0

I think this would all tie together nicely!

Our family was terrorized by Homeland Security.  Read all about it here:  http://www.jmwagner.com/ and http://www.burtw.com/  Any donations to help us recover from the $300,000 in legal fees and forced donations to the Federal Asset Forfeiture slush fund are greatly appreciated!

hey ppl, I'm running the bitcoin minefield,
this is a good idea and I pledge 5 btc, and will automatically donate 20% of the game profits to a minefield related charity if we manage to set this up. as I said in that topic, I'd prefer the demining organisation versus the lobbying one, but that's not a deal breaker.

Thanks to this suggestion, I've found that ICBL uses Newtwork for Good as one of their fundraising revenue streams. On NfG I found this: http://www1.networkforgood.org/sites/default/files/files/NFG_2010_990.pdf

Scrolling way down I found what they paid out to Zumix. I went to Zumix's site and found this: http://www.zumix.org/support
(scroll to bottom on right you'll see NfG Donation section)

It's this aspect that I wanted to bring to your attention.

This is what I aspire Bitcoin 100 to be one day. Not Zumix, but having that donation area similar to what NfG supplies.

Back to http://www1.networkforgood.org/sites/default/files/files/NFG_2010_990.pdf
Here, you'll see every $ to non-profits that NfG paid out. That's one hell of a list, if you ask me. One of which can be gleaned.

More like this.

My suggestion was the "B" in "Bit" and not "Bitcoin", but this is a hell of lot better. Damn that looks good. I'm going to put it on the site now to see how it looks. Remember, it's not written in stone, and we can always change things in the future.

Thank you, again, CBH. Great work!

I noticed you guys are struggling with a design so I put some time into a logo. Use it or don't. My contribution just the same.



Nice but the hands could be more realistic.
You mean something horrid like this?



No, I just meant that the fingers of the hands in the first image don't look right and I don't like the way the hands are cut off in the middle of the palm instead of at the wrist.

Still around.

Let's start working with this image and see how it progresses. Perhaps start with the truism that white, black, red and yellow people populate the globe. Tighten up the Bitcoin logo image in the center, having it pronounced as much as possible. I kind of like the gray outer circles/design, but it doesn't have to be gray. Only stating that I like the concept. It kind of reminds me of TV's early Emergency Broadcast System (EBS) symbol.

We can consider that, paraipan. The reason I put it in is to have it juxtaposed against the Bitcoin symbol at the beginning. Remember, that Bitcoin 100 is mainly directed toward prospective non-profits who currently deal in $. We're, in retrospect, trying to disrupt their current model, but first Bitcoin will work mano-y-mano with it.

I'm also aware that we shouldn't try to be cute with our design. For the same reason we don't use Comic Sans as the font. Although I have a strong comic side like Matthew, I need to distance from that personality when it comes to a business plan. If Bitcoin Magazine was modeled off Matthew's personality, it would be a flop. The same is true with Bitcoin 100. Although it's not meant to be humorous, having the Bitcoin sign and dollar sign located in the header logo (and it's not an official logo) will be as close as I come to incorporating any humor onto the website.

All this is open up for further discussion, BTW. Thank you, paraipan, for your input.

I am currently setting up a tv show for Occupy Melbourne and next week Im demonstrating bitcoin to a few of my mates at OM who Ive been talking to my friends there about it and they are keen to accept them as a donation method.

You could pledge to fund the rise of a tv show dedicated to the 99% and know it would be the first tv show partly founded by bitcoin.

The less we have to raise through traditional channels the better and we can get the corrupt bankers in compromising interviews etc. In return we would have a segment devoted to bitcoin in the show for such things as interviews with famous bitcoiners and how to use them/accept them etc.

This is slated to appear on channel 31 here in melbourne as a 1 hour tv show and additionally as a pirate/community radio station right in the centre of Melbourne.

What better way to promote bitcoin to people than through a community television show dedicated to all things in the social movement sphere ? 100 btc would almost fund the show for 12 months (because we are all volunteers) meaning we need to raise even less through traditional means and not have to suck advertisers ass.

We really want to avoid becoming a registered business if at all possible and bitcoin is the best way to do that imo.

The less we are in thrall to the local government the more we can hold them to account. For instance recently we found out the gov has been hiring a private company to spy on community organsations. We want to do an investigative piece on this company and expose them further. Also we will be showing the reactions of authorities to people doing such tings as taking  a nap in supposedly public owned areas but which in reality governments has signed over to private companies.

If you have any info on bankers,corporations and governments acting badly come to us first and we will expose it where shows such as sixty minutes will ignore it.

I pm'd you just now on what we are doing at ch99 as for OM im doing a bitcoin demo next friday/saturday. I expect there might be an official btc address appearing on occupymelbourne.org soonish.

The one reservtion  I had when trying to convince them to do this is the risk of them putting up a donation address then receiving no donations. Where bitcoin100 comes in is showing the viability of this method of online donations and then they are more likely to embrace it rather than go the paypal route.
