Plan to promote Bitcoin at CANORML Cannabis Conference next weekend

We would like to promote the use of Bitcoin in the cannabis economy, and have secured a sponsorship for the California NORML Conference at Ft. Mason next weekend commemorating the 100 Year Anniversary of Cannabis Prohibition in California.  We need to discuss ideas for what we can do to help medical marijuana dispensary operators learn how to use Bitcoin to manage their operations in the face of federal government opposition to their businesses.  To this end, I would like to distribute CD or DVD copies of bitcoin client software and other materials (documentation, videos, merchant resources, etc.) to all attendees of the conference.  Who wants to help out?  Let's get together and brainstorm this Friday.

You can find out more about the conference on their website at  Cost to attend is $45 per day, so you can choose to come on Saturday, January 25, or Sunday, January 26 or if you find it helpful and worth your time, come on both days for $85.

    I like the Sycamore, even though it is rather small and crowded. Tim said the June BeerCoin event was memorable because it was held on a Wednesday, which is usually a slow night, so the Bitcoin crowd was the most business he had that night. I asked if he used any of the bitcoin merchant tools, but he said the folks who organized the meetup took care of converting BTC to US$, so he still doesn't use bitcoins for normal transactions. Nevertheless, he said we are welcome to meet here anytime we wish. It is convenient for public transit (1 block from the 16th Street BART station) and right across the street from Noisebridge. We could also meet @ Noisebridge and have drinks at Sycamore afterward.

    What I really wanted to do tonight was to see if anyone could help me to burn 200 CD/DVD disks to distribute at next weekend's Cannabis Conference at Ft. Mason. I would like to give every attendee a disk with BTC client software and introduce them to the project.
