In Prague he said something along the lines: "You guys need to be on the phone, if you're not on the phone, you go down.". I just remembered this. Hmm, did we achieve this goal sufficiently already with bitcoinspinner, blockchain.info wallet, electrum4a,... ?

If by on the phone he meant smart phone, obviously yes, we'll be covering this aspect.  If he meant analog line, I don't get it .

Awareness.

Of the people I've talked with across a broad spectrum of industries and disciplines, from a wide age range among management and executives to engineers and investors, there is perhaps low single-digit recognition of Bitcoin. That's including the majority being "I've heard of it" responses. Only a handful, usually younger individuals, actually have had even a rudimentary understanding of how Bitcoin works and what its potential is. Almost all of those consider Bitcoin interesting, but remain guarded, preferring to wait for version 2 or 3, or a 'stable' release.

Until people know the Bitcoin logo as well as even an obscure household brand-name, growth will be an uphill battle. Anonymity and irreversible transactions are just not big selling points for most people. Catch-phrases that speak to what matters to them would go far in getting the initial interest, something like: "Bitcoin: Better Money"; "Bitcoin Doesn't Do Bailouts"; "Bitcoin: Checking & Savings All In One"; "Keep Your Rewards, Pay Lower Fees With Bitcoin".

i guarantee you alot of ppl worldwide are sitting up and talking about the recent price rise in Bitcoin.  most ppl are interested in money to some degree or another given the last 4 yrs of turmoil and when something starts moving up in price they pay attention.

That's for sure - $6 million rise in total market size over the course of a week? It could easily be tens of thousands of people jumping on board - still a tiny amount overall, but geometric expansions start small. Once more people realize there's an alternative...

Your not the only one:

Also his name sounds a lot like Charlie Sheen, and we all know how crazy he is. Would you trust Charlie Sheen with your money?

Besides for his drug field sex-capades the guy is a multi-mullionare TV star.

Bitcoin pioneer. An apostle of Satoshi Nakamoto. A crusader for a new, better, tech-driven society. A dreamer.

If it was cool, the Chinese would have taken over by now.

Here you can see how we should spin the news.
