RSA Animate - Drive: The surprising truth about what motivates us

Creating a Bitcoin client that fully implements the network protocol is extremely difficult. Bitcoin-Qt is the only known safe implementation of a full node. Some other projects attempt to compete, but it is not recommended to use such software for anything serious. (Lightweight clients like Electrum and MultiBit are OK.)

Very good video, thank you very much for linking it.

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)

Nice. I was expecting another braindead "selfish" explanation of earning more money, bitches or fame. Simple fact is that I think people like to create, and feel inspired. I don't like pouring the precious hours of my life into a blackhole that will disappear in a few years time. It's nice to write things people will use to bring more wealthy, happiness and benefit to their lives rather than software which causes misery and vendor-lockin. Our job as coders is not to imprison people but to set their minds free.
