An idea came about in IRC (credit: Blitzboom) for a new room to talk about PR, marketing strategy, and quick alerts to new media.

At #bitcoin-marketing a more focused and progressive discussion could take place about how to spread awareness about Bitcoin.

It would also function as a way to quickly organize a crowd for reddit, slashdot, and hacker news discussions.  The key here would not be spamming upvotes or anything, but rather trying to spark thought-provoking discussions at the right place and time.  Edit: Also public Twitter conversations/ideas.

Of course these #bitcoin-marketing discussions would spill out into the other rooms (bitcoin-dev and bitcoin-discussion) and that is a good thing!  

As was mentioned on the EconTalk podcast (, there is no real "infrastructure" with bitcoin, which means PR is a bit under served perhaps.

All this having been said, this is just an experiment.  Come talk strategy etc if you want to.

I'm in contact with the head of the anonymous news network on facebook, and I got him to accept bitcoin donations for his efforts.

I feel like the anonymous community could latch onto this and give it a huge bump. They have ties to larger communities like reddit, and colbertnation.  I think this is the road that would likely make its usage spill over into the irl.

meanwhile, I'm available for graphics/video production for a discounted rate as I've got investments in bitcoin, and would like to see them grow.

I don't like siting on IRC so it will be a good thing to post best ideas here on forums.
