The "Bitcoin for Dummies" episode airs tomorrow, and the youtube preview has 20k views!  Will there be an obvious bump in bitcoin searches after it airs?

In the past, I think all bitcoin publicity hype has been just that - hype, with no effect on bitcoin usage.  Even if people stopped by the bitpay CES booth every minute, that would come to about 2k people over the whole CES.

A secondary measure might be the "what is bitcoin?" video, which has 884,257 views right now.

After or even during the episode the price will drop as people wonder where the pop is and panic sell.  Swing traders will continue to cash in.  Many days later the price will slowly rise due to the mildly increased exposure.  I personally believe the rise will be greater then the fall.

people watch these shows for the limbic system hack:
they get their emotions driven!

Notice they do not watch it for financial advice.

I personally have never googled anything after a series except the series wiki perhaps.

No offense, but your not the norm, try watching something engaging, something educational.. and then maybe you will google things after..

Watching the Simpsons isnt exactly engaging..

While unfortunately, I do think he is "the norm" I do also believe there are enough people who will google it and talk about it over the "water cooler" to increase bitcoin awareness.

I talk about it around the coffee machine (water cooler so to speak) at work. This is actually how i learned of it and am up to about 18 BTC. I now hold more BTC than the person who introduced me and I have introduced a few others. Its very easy to see how Bitcoins could go viral.

Also telflone I am Canadian too. GO CANUCKS!

Toronto. I give Harper 0 credit because he gets credit for all of Martin's fiscal policies. If it were not for his banking regulations that Harper would have done away with given the chance then we would have been right in the shitter with the USA/ The intrusions into privacy and his stupid dumb on crime omni bus crime bill are going to set this country back generations. He wants to lock up small time pot growers longer than child rapists (MMS for pot will be higher than rape). It is truly a dark period in our countries history.

I whole heartedly agree with you on that, the war on drugs is stupid, specially with pot. But personally I think he has a LOT of pressure to tighten up the drug laws from big brother down south.. Locking up pot growers and smokers is hilariously dumb, and infringes on our basic rights. It should be treated like Alcohol or tobacco.  And how about Mcsquinty, raising tax on booze, like we dont pay enough already...

Yeah the booze tax is silly but that is the law. The law mandates that minimum alcohol prices must rise with inflation. At least in the case of that the money goes into ontario's coffers which pays for health care. Ultimately it is a voluntary tax buying booze which fundamentally I don't have a problem with.

Another stupid thing is the LGR. You have to register your cat, dog and car but not your guns now. The outright destruction of this information is what is truly wasting money because if we decide in the future to reinstate it the cost would be outrageous. And don't get me wrong I love to shoot guns but you can never be too careful when it comes to firearms.


Any progress Canada has made over the past 4 years is thanks to the people and not any government.

Well we will have to agree to disagree! Smiley

I have an issue with the LGR, but its too late now, and yes, since it was instated, we certainly shouldnt stop or destroy the info now that its recorded.  I still say they were concentrating on the issue the wrong way, the old saying, outlaws will be the only ones with guns argument..

The law about raising taxes in unison with inflation is fine, but my paycheck isnt raising fast enough to keep up with the "Immediate change in gas prices" so to speak, if you get what Im saying.. An analogy, gas is just an example of a thought process Im trying convey.

Inflation sucks and my wages also havent gone up at all in the past 4 years. As for gas, well when I moved to the big city I had to get rid of my cars because I apparently live in the most expensive part of the country for insurance. As for the old argument on guns, it wasnt illegal to own guns as long as you are properly licensed so that saying is false. What it does provide is incentive to lock up your guns and to make them not easily accessible (for thieves).

On the opposite end of the spectrum I have seen crazy shit with guns in the states. People driving around with AK-47s and enough ammo to start a war every day. In detroit its just crazy how many gunfights there are every day and how many shootings go on. Like I said I love shooting guns but definitely feel safer with the regulation.

We're not all nuts down here.  In West Virginia, we all have guns and use them frequently.  Very rarely does a human get injured by a firearm.  But wild animals are infinitely tastier than store-bought meat, not to mention much cheaper.

Well, we wont get into the ol' americans and their guns speech! lol Smiley

They must be regulated, and it should not be your god given birth right to bare arms.

I work intimately with armed guards nearly everyday, and have taken my courses every year as required by my job and I wouldnt have it any other way. Yet I own no restricted guns, I dont feel a need to personally defend myself with a handgun, let alone a monster ar14 or ak74/47 those are simply ridiculous hunting or otherwise.

Thats what my guards are for.

Would I be this way if living in the US?..  No way, I would pack absolutely. But thats because of the job I have.

One of a million reasons I love Canada..

I see guns and the internet as two very similar things in regards to regulation.  Any effort will be futile. Technology will always prevail.

Yep... You just force people to hide their actions with regulations.  Better to live in small communities where you feel welcome and aren't afraid of your neighbors if you ask me.  People cause violence against each other out of a feeling of isolation, not because you allow them access to weapons.
