Also, a powerpoint presentation might be handy in the future.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

I am interested in doing this movie but there are others that might be interested too.  Will this be a competition?  If so how will the bitcoins be distributed?  Thx.

Every movie approved by Satoshi will be put to a vote in a forum poll one week after the first submission is approved.  Coins sent to my escrow will be sent to the winner of the vote.  Everyone else who pledges will get to choose among approved submissions.

Each of my prizes can only be won once (first video wins), but different videos can win different prizes. So all nine prizes will eventually be won. There's no time limit.

I'm only going to award my "merit prizes" if the point is covered very well. You'll have to devote at least 3-5 minutes of the video to the point.

I'm sorry, but I didn't care for it.  I makes a decent ad, which I imagine was the goal, but it will perpetuate the myth that bitcoins are comparable to gold.  This is not so, and should not be repeated.  The process may be an online comparable to mining for gold, but gold is hard money.  Bitcoins are not hard money.

From "the man with the master plan" himself:

It's the same situation as gold and gold mining.  The marginal cost of gold mining tends to stay near the price of gold.  Gold mining is a waste, but that waste is far less than the utility of having gold available as a medium of exchange.

That's what I said.  The video is misleading, and will perpetuate the 'good as gold' myth.  This is not something that we want to support.  It's only an analogy.

What's the definition of "hard money" ?
It's not "physical", otherwise printed dollars would be called so.

Bitcoins are a commodity, and can be compared to gold. Actually, it's even better, since one day the monetary base will freeze. Gold natural reserves won't run out so soon.

Bitcoins are a commodity, and can be compared to gold. Actually, it's even better, since one day the monetary base will freeze. Gold natural reserves won't run out so soon.

"Hard money" is a commodity that is 1) durable 2) divisable and 3) difficult to fake and 4) difficult to produce.

Bitcoins are a currency, but neither are they backed by a commodity standard of any kind, nor do they represent an obligation (debt) of a bank or government like a fait currency.  Money can also be a currency, if they are minted into a standard denomination, but money does not have to be a currency.  But a paper currency is not money; at best, paper currencies are a symbol and substitute for the money.  Even this mush has not been the case anywhere in the world since the Swiss were pressured into dropping the gold standard.
