Alright! The Free State Project's largest annual event, PorcFest, is occuring June 18-24 at Roger's Campground in New Hampshire. This is basically a large libertarian camping festival - with food, guns, music, panel discussions, drinking, smoking, intellectual discourse, and all manner of subversive anti-state activity.

They have integrated Paysius.com, so they are now accepting Bitcoins for registration.

This year, I'm setting up a full Bitcoin exchange as a vendor on sight, and will be preaching the good word. Ira Miller, Charlie Shrem, and Roger Ver will also be in attendance, as well as at least one girl from GirlsGoneBitcoin Wink  Bitcoin will be almost as prevalent as conversations about building roads without governments.

So, if you're going and haven't registered yet, GO NOW and pay with Bitcoin! Select Bitcoin during checkout:  https://freestateproject.org/registration/porcfest/2012

Why is it so hard for people to understand the difference between free as in "the absence of coercion" and free as in "a market price of zero."  I know they share a name but jeez...  Wink

This is really awesome. If there's a perfect group of people to introduce Bitcoin to it's them.

My personality type: INTJ - please forgive my weaknesses (Not naturally in tune with others feelings; may be insensitive at times, tend to respond to conflict with logic and reason, tend to believe I'm always right)

Of course. It's very unfortunate that english has the same word for "free as in beer" and "free as in speech". Because that's really not the same thing.

Lawyers use "gratis" to mean "free as in beer", and "libre" to mean "free as in speech".

We should just use the word "liberty" when we want to say "freedom"

Pig pig sooie!

“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

I'm sure Bardo will be roasting some of their pigs, but PorcFest is short for the Porcupine Freedom Festival. The Free State Project uses the porcupine as its mascot as it is a friendly creature as long as you don't mess with it, but if you do you'll pay for it.

Shire Silver, a better bullion that fits in your wallet. Get some, now accepting bitcoin!

In a monetary system, you are only as free as you can afford to be.

Bitcoin combines money, the wrongest thing in the world, with software, the easiest thing in the world to get wrong.

That's not money, that's reality.

Oh man, house doesn't grow like a plant, cars doesn't fall from the sky ready for you to drive,... All those things comes from men's work. Tha's not slavery that's reality.

Freedom isn't free. No there's a hefty fuckin' fee

But to kick this back on topic. Nice initiative evoorhees, also smart to make an exchange available. I won't be attending (other continent) but good luck.

Very interesting!

Freedom Festival... Price of admission: not free - totally a meme in the making....
And that's where english fail, same word for two different things that are often related  Cheesy English should start to use different words for free in sense of free speech and free in sense of free beer.

Money has no relationship to reality. The items you listed are products of innovation and are technical in nature.

Bitcoin combines money, the wrongest thing in the world, with software, the easiest thing in the world to get wrong.
