Edit: withdrawals etc are coming on TradeHill, working through the backlog, that still gets 99% of my time.

If anyone is interested I'm helping to organize a hack-a-thon over the weekend of the 24th and 25th.
It's going to be at Adobe's building in downtown San Francisco. We've got Craig Newmark (Craigs List), the Mayor Ed Lee and Steve Blank on board.
It's not expensive, you'll be fed and we'll probably have free beer from my friend's brewery.

The event is designed to bring more military veterans in to the tech scene. If you're a vet then great, if you're not then you're still welcome.
We're looking for biz dev, designers, coders and anyone else with an interest. This would be a great opportunity to promote your Bitcoin projects or anything else you're interested in.
I'll be around for the entire event and happy to speak with anyone as well. There will be a lot of big names watching this and I'd love to see something Bitcoin related really take the spotlight.

I'm posting this on my blog at and I'll be tweeting from @jeredkenna with updates.

Please spread the word and let anyone know who you think might be interested.
