Don't want to take too much of everyone's time, just need to make some announcements:
Firstly, the funding page is now up: http://www.weusecoins.com/fund.php
- Every time the marketing fund spends money I'll update that page so you can see what we're doing. I put in the first video at a fixed amount of 2000 BTC as promised. For future expenses we'll do the accounting individually if possible, e.g. if the voice over costs 500$, we'll put it as a single entry with the corresponding amount of coins at whatever exchange rate we were able to get.
Also, I've added a link to the materials page in the footer: http://www.weusecoins.com/materials.php
The mining guide is launched for now, I've made it even clearer that normal users don't need to mine, I hope it's ok for now. I do still think that it wouldn't hurt if more people understood how mining is done, even if they don't mine themselves. Also the page has lots of links to the wiki and it's a great place to start diving deeper into Bitcoin imho.
I also darkened the font color - somebody suggested that, but I can't find the post anymore.
So whoever you are, thanks, good suggestion!
Finally, I felt that the Bitcoin Roadtrip
is an awesome project for some Bitcoin publicity and so the fund made its first donation: 50 BTC to PLATO for the Bitcoin Roadtrip. Go PLATO!! Wheee!
And that's all for now. I've been quite busy on my other Bitcoin project which I should finally be able to launch by next weekend. Meanwhile, please keep sharing your thoughts in the 2nd video
thread. We have a full 7002 BTC in the marketing fund and I need ideas on how to spend it.
