Hey all,

BitInstant is showing here at NY Tech Day in Manhattan today. If any of you are in the area, stop by! Our booth is on the outer edge.

Address is The Armory, Lexington Ave and 25th.

It's amazing how few people have ever even heard of bitcoin - and these are tech types! Also amazing how much people love the casascius coins!

It's a nice thing in my opinion, much better than people that have heard of bitcoin in june 2011 cause of the bubble, tried it and discarded it due to it's not readyness.
Now bitcoin infrastructures are much better, so new ppl will find much more things to do and options for their needs

It's amazing how few people have ever even heard of bitcoin

And all that many of those who have heard of Bitcoin know about it is what they learned from Gawker (i.e., just the sensationalist events over the past year).

To help explain the real story about the number of areas where bitcoin is used, here's a thread I replied to which might come in handy for you:

That was an awesome summary you threw together!

Seriuosly!  However, I do have to say that every person that I have given a Casascius coin to has gone on to purchase over $100 of their own bitcoins.

Those things certainly are a good investment if you're trying to "sell" bitcoins... which oh wait Bit instant is!  Nice job.

The banner between you two looks like:

"INST ANT
 TRANSFERS"

I don't know how you generated it, but the kerning is all wrong.

Most design programs will adjust the inter-character spacing for you automatically to make it look better, like this:

I think it was because the banner was folding over  Smiley
