I'll be waiting with baited breath!

"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'll be waiting with baited breath!

Sally, having swallowed cheese,
Directs down holes the scented breeze,
Enticing thus with baited breath
Nice mice to an untimely death.

I'm looking forward to the info!

I hope we can get a booth with these at the next 99% rally.

But seriously, would you turn down a chance to reinvent the future of technology with a bunch of Europeans who barely speak your language? Like I said 'Why the hell not!'

Indeed!

We from the Austrian Bitcoin community are happy to get the chance to meet you all and talk about the potential of this great piece of technology. It'll be a very interesting event for sure (despite the strange language of us Europeans Wink)

Fat chance, apparently MNW is developing a competitor to it that he doesn't want anyone to know about, so he probably wouldn't allow such an article to be included.

I am currently talking with Nejc and it seems interesting. If I can manage getting the plane tickets I might attend as well.

My role at Bitcoin Magazine isn't to exclude legitimate stories of innovation in Bitcoin. It's to include legitimate news. When bitcoincard is proven to be more than just an over-hyped self-contradicting pipe dream website, I would be more than happy to write an entire piece on it for the print issue. The same goes for MintChip (which will probably end up as a colossal  failure but I hope -that- succeeds as well as it serves a purpose).

If the Ellet ever gets an article, it'll be because it's been proven, not because I have some kind of special interest in it. Your horridly inaccurate underestimation of our journalistic integrity is quite sickening. I want the same thing you want-- less bullshit and vaporware and more movement. Yet instead of bothering to build something or participate in a movement, you prefer to poke fun at me and all my personal advances in the Bitcoin economy. Classy.

Open your eyes to the facts: why don't these bitcoincard guys stick to what they say instead of completely contradicting themselves in their uberhype videos? "Doesn't rely on infrastructure"? What do you call requiring everyone in the world to hold a gateway repeater to the benefit of their neighbors? What do you call a USB dongle? Give me a break. I hope this is all clarified in this trip (that's why they're going afterall), but I'm not holding my breath because we've already found the solution and don't need to wait on anyone else.

As a community, we're all waiting to see what Erik and Charlie gather on their trip to Vienna, but I can't say I personally have much faith in any of this being more than fishing for investors for a product that markets itself as a privacy invasive DOA piece of hardware that requires a major rebuilding of a communications infrastructure just so you can be force fed ads.

Yeah I know lame right, but I did some searching and you apparently need it none the less.

Extra information, you need fingerprint in your passport now as well...

You need to carry one (and it needs to be valid...) but you might not need to show it during your whole trip, depending on if you go by car/plane/train...

I'm doubtful about the fingerprint stuff, you might need to give fingerprints to get a passport, but Austria doesn't reject you, if your passport is not biometric (at least if you're from Denmark).

Number one reason why you need an "Announcements" account and a "trolling account". Also your view is being jaded because you are competition, so I think we shall just sit back and see what happens. Furthermore, that statement was from before you actually made the "Ellet" announcement and gave more than just superficial details about it, so gimme a break.
