See Everyone Tonight :)

Thanks to everyone who came out to the first event!  I had a great time getting to know everyone, and hearing about each of your backgrounds and interests.  What's most exciting to me is how apparent it is that everyone who attended the inaugural meetup understands the social implications of this amazing thing and wants to take part in sharing it far and wide.  I can't wait to carry this momentum into our next event.  Below are some goals I offered to the group at the last event:

• Talk at least one person or business into using or accepting BTC

• Share the group on social media accounts 

• Bring someone to the next meetup (extra points for bringing members of the fairer sex! bitcoin needs you too, girls:)

There were so many great questions and concerns that arose from the discussion at the first meeting.  I'll do my best to summarize the ones that stood out to me below, but please everyone, feel free to share others that are important to you or any I forgot.

• The Anonymity of Bitcoin

• Does bitcoin have flaws?

• Is bitcoin unregulated?

• Decentralized vs Distributed

• What are the best resources to buy/sell bitcoin? 

• How can brick and mortar merchants accept/promote bitcoin?

• Strategies for outreach and publicity.

I posted this link to the Facebook group (please request to join here! I'll add you right away), so some of you may have seen it already.  It's probably the most comprehensive analysis of bitcoin - implications, inner-workings, and all - that I've come across as yet.  This article is of the longer variety, but I assure you it's well worth the read. Enjoy! 

That's all I got, gang.  Can't wait to see you all again in two weeks along with many new faces too, I hope :)


Stay in touch,

    Sorry, I'll be out of town on vacation then (but it's also too far west for me - I need somewhere I can get to on bicycle power from the east side of Milwaukee ;-)).

      Glad to have you join us, Jeff! Hope you can make it to the next one :)

    Again I will have to shut down the meeting at the office at 7:25 so we may want to pick another date, like Wed the 14th.

    • Will P.

      Yeah, understood. I'm hoping to get a response from a few of the places I've been pressuring to accept BTC in the downtown area. Maybe we as a group could influence a place of our choice to grease us if each of us do some squeaking? I have been talking to 42 Lounge, The Hudson Business Lounge & Wine Bar, and BarNone. I'd love to know what places other group members have in their crosshairs to join the BTC family. Don't hold back guys! :)
