How about Bitcoin-Charity.com or CoinWorker.com for projects that aren't so potentially controversial?

have you had a look at the jobs at coinworker and the payment? how is that not controversial?
i would rather be dealing drugs...

I agree with Gavin's sentiment, but those are certainly attention grabbers...

Has Bitdrop been developed at all yet?  Or will you just be speaking about it theoretically?

Development kicks of after GLBSE 2.0 rolls out, all the theory has been worked out along with the business model and we've got the developers. We'll be doing a GLBSE IPO to fund it.

In the talk I'll just be speaking about the theory of it so people get a basic understanding of how it works, and explaining how bitcoin allows a service like this to exist where it couldn't before.

I dislike talking about silkroad. We should cement dollars with illegal drugs, not bitcoin.

For illegal drugs and firearms, the money of choice is STILL the dollars.

So this isnt the TED that I goto in Long Beach, correct?

BTW: I had an hour long talk about bitcoin with the head of the company in charge of filming the TED talks in LB. Was VERY interested and I am setting up a demo for early next week to show him and a few select others the glory that is bitcoin.

I'm fine in front of a couple of people, I can talk until I'm dizzy, and the same if it's a group of Chinese students. On front of that group my mind just went blank.

Right now I don't think there is a video up, in maybe a day or so.

Yes I taught in China, no I'm not Chinese, so that makes me an English teacher.

Why wasn't this subject brought up in this thread? http://www.tedxleeds.com/news/

INTRODUCING THE LUDOS…

At TEDxLeeds2012 we will be introducing the Ludos, a new currency for Leeds. The Ludos will exist for just the evening of 29th of February and will be legal tender for a special menu at Primos, at the Corn Exchange. One Ludos will be equivalent to one Pound Sterling.

The Ludos was named by The Culture Vultures’ Emma Bearman to imply both playfulness and the city’s ancient name of Leodis. Tom Morgan, then set about designing a unique banknote, celebrating Leeds past and hinting at its imagined future…

It was located on the page I linked to, directly above the bio of NEFARIO (JAMES MCCARTHY).

TED franchises their brand to let people put on TED talks around the globe that have the same mission but are not organized by the core TED team.  I would guess the Leeds TEDx was one of these franchised events.

I was just after getting off the phone with the organisers, the videos will be available on the TED website in about 2 weeks.

He tells me that my talk went ok, guess I'm my own worse critic.

I've got a few notes of the Leeds Ludos, I didn't want to spend them, they look too nice, I'll get a pic of them up later today.

don't be discuraged, you just have to do more talks like this.
99.99% wouldn't ever have come up on the stage to talk for 20 minutes about a controversial and rather complicated topic. by doing this you have manged quite a lot already.

A lot of people have such problems so don't worry, I do too, you can join a Toastmasters club if you have one around in your area, there is 13 000 of them around the world, it really helps with speaking in public/learning to make speeches/improvising, etc.
