The great thing about us Australians is that we are real go-getters at heart!  We will go and innovate, and lead the world when we get a chance to.

Having a strong community will allow us to build upon each other’s skills and abilities, and duplicate the minimum amount of work.  Making us much stronger and effective, and giving us the real-possibility to lead the world.

The reason I’ve decided to spear-head re-building the Australian Bitcoin Community is that I feel that it is very important that we get the ball rolling now, before the massive influx of new people comes from the next big bitcoin rally.


By the way, I am chiefly involved in the Open Transactions project; this project allows people to trade the ownership of real-life assets online, in a cryptographically secure and reliable way.  This project is complexly different to bitcoin.  Open Transactions solves a different problem to bitcoin, making them particularly powerful if used together.

Ok... Some Basic IRC notes:

1. Use a secure connection...

Connect to: https://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=bitcoin-aus&uio=d4   <-  see the https  Smiley

2. Use a good IRC client....

Maybe KVIR….   or irssi (if you are textschool)…

2b.  Connect to a good server... such as chat.au.freenode.org and connect on port 7000 so you force yourself to use SSL!!

3.  Register a IRC nickname...

easy as: /ns register (password) (email)

3b.  Don't use the same password as your email!! or Bitcointalk!!!

4. Make sure you have enforce on:

easy as /ns set enforce on

5. Connect via SASL!

well for KVIRC it is easy... for others it may be a bit more hard.

6. Get a Cloak...

politely ask for one in #freenode Smiley


Ha ha... Well that is most of the basic done! If you get to this stage... well you won't be counted as a IRC noob anymore!

Hmm... Well IRC is good fun... it is good for planning and working together as a team...  We should consider getting a website for guides, and other more static documentation.

I have a few people who ask me "hows bitcoin going these days?" without further interest. What do you folks need from Australia? Things like Barramundi bikinis or stuffed cane toads?
Theres got to be an Aussie bitcoin thing to do.

Well the UK thing to do (that I have done) is to gett smashing drunk at your local with some bitcoin friends you've met on IRC.  Then spending the next day wishing you had never met them. Cheesy

In Australia I guess you could have a Bitcoin BBQ, or smoke some weed and talk about how 'dope' bitcoi is (or both).  However I think the most Aussie thing to do is to buld a trading system that makes bitcoins, cheap (aka. Close to the market rate), and easy for the normal bloak to get his hand on some.

Just a group of people where we can bounce off eachother is a good start.

KVIrc is great!  It has good support for both Windows and Linux, support SASL natively (important for Freenode) and has great theme support.
