A meetup just for newbies (aka: noobs)!
This is the place to learn from the most experienced Bitcoin fans in MN on what it's all about.
Thirty minutes of a BRIEF overview of Bitcoin. Learn about the philosophies, concepts, and motivations behind Bitcoin. Includes a *light* discussion of the technical specs (though we don't want to get bogged down in the math-- do you really need to know the protocols, encryption methods, programming languages used everytime you swipe your Visa card?).
Thirty minutes of websites where you can buy, trade, sell, learn, discuss, and explore Bitcoin. You may want to take notes...but there are three LARGE screens that we will be sharing everything on.
Sixty minute of hands-on getting started with help from 'experts'. Android smart phones and tablets are most bitcoin friendly, but laptops and iPads work too. Free wifi provided by Video Guidance.
We are really trying to cater to those who don't yet own any bitcoin or want to accept bitcoins at their businesses...but if you are selling any bitcoins you might want to come.
