Click above to watch the Christmas Special!

We learned a valuable lesson about having expensive video equipment but shitty substandard hardware for rendering and encoding. We ended up releasing this almost 3 days after Christmas as a result. What a joke. We'll do better next time.


Let's play a game--

SPOT THE MISTAKES!

Dear Bitcoiners,

As I type this we are finishing up our last rounds of rendering and editing for the Christmas Special on BitTalk.TV.

What is the Christmas Special you ask? Well, I am a firm believer that everything should be interesting, thought provoking and entertaining and have noticed a huge stick firmly lodged up the buttox of the bitcoin community. To remedy this, I have spent much of my time making light of people's not-so-serious problems, keeping humor in conversations, and trying to weed out the self important money grubbing turtles.

What I have learned is that trolling is an art form, and as with any art form there are always idiots incapable of understanding and appreciating it. So, I decided to use my talents to bring some of that artform to a more appropriate medium-- video!

The Christmas Special represents myself, Vicente Santinavez (film), Mihai Alisie (marketing), Vitalik Buterin (editor), Vladimir Marchenko (security), GoWest (columnist), and all the rest of our legal, accounting and writers' belief that not only does this community need a better media outlet, but that when things are too serious, dry and boring (or when the host spends all his time looking at his cellphone) it doesn't really provide any value to anyone and it just serves to make everyone bored and shit themselves. This Christmas Special is our way of greeting the community proper and letting them know we are here to stay, with regular videos and even a magazine to boot.

We had a month to prepare but we wanted high quality equipment and there was also a death in my family, so scheduling got all fudged up and we ended up needing to rush a lot of it. Better late than never though, ey? I believe that this Christmas Special will have something for everyone (especially a few interviews with bitcoin businessmen never seen before and a few announcements no one knows about yet).

We're making this Christmas Special with entertainment in mind, but have left nuggets of education in it for both hard core bitcoiners and those right off the street.

Watch this thread and bittalk.tv for the Christmas Special airing on December 25th, 2011 - Christmas Day.

Happy Holidays!

Matthew N. Wright

I couldn't help but noticed that you've chosen an Atlas company for your background, thus adding 'value' to your levitation photos.

Is it scented?

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA

Vladimir Marchenko (security)

30 second spot.  Enter an office, a close up of malicious activity on a screen, zoom back out to the geek up to no good, typing away, laughing maniacally.   Then Vlad, played by himself, with Sunglasses and no smile, no anger either, just walks in confident, smashes the kids hand as he is about to click a mouse, and walks out.   Big white text on black, "VLAD SECURITY, REAL REAL SOLID"

Dress the geek up with a name tag featuring whoever you wish to have as the target for the parody ad, I am guessing Atlas would be your choice.

What this http://www.youtube.com/user/DialCoin (view the stats) tells me is that Bitcoin truly needs a destructive technology or destructive innovation--SOON!!! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disruptive_technology
