Georgia Tech fans won't need to hit the ATM to pay for snacks and drinks at games soon, as the school reached a deal to become the first college program to use bitcoin for concessions sales.

Fans at Bobby Dodd Stadium will be able to use online currency for concessions.
The school announced the agreement Wednesday with BitPay, a bitcoin processing company. It will allow fans to purchase concessions in the student section at Bobby Dodd Stadium using the Internet currency beginning with Saturday night's game against Miami.

That is awesome news, if any of the colleges in my area do something like this I will go to a game...even if it is a KU football game (blah).

My goodness though, reading through the comments, you almost feel like you have been hit with a stupid stick.  Do people not do any research before making comments (that is a rhetorical question as I know they do not).  But if that is any indication of public view of bitcoin (and not just rantings of stupid people who either lost money with the price decrease or got robbed because they can't protect their own investment), then something needs to change to shed a more positive light on bitcoin.

The college is open to bitcoin and looking for ways integrating with this new technology. It will raise the awareness of fans and students who will form the base of this new generation and get used to using this new payment.
