      Would just like to suggest calling it "swarming" instead of "bombing". :)

    Great meetup! I heard someone asking a question on white-label exchanges. There are at least two now - Buttercoin and Bex.io. My company, Ventures Scanner, just initiated coverage on the Bitcoin Startup Ecosystem (currently 285 companies): http://www.venturescanner.com/scans/bitcoin. Feel free to ping me at [masked] to discuss! Exciting times!

    Is there a list of the presenters from last night? (noise level was pretty high)

    January 15, 2014

  • Nathan A.

    The room was not made for that many people I guess. And the mic was not loud enough but I met a lot of interesting persons and i am glad I intended the meetup

      There was plenty of volume, it was just that we didn't get all the conversations at the back to stop during the talks which I think is a mistake. There was a ton of time to network before and after the talks so I think it is only polite to stay quiet for 40 minutes or so during the talks while enjoying the free beverages.

    Wow! We just passed 250 RSVPs! In lieu of any liability problems we could face, I'll be "bar tending" to check IDs and hand out beers. If anyone wants to help, I'll be setting up a tipping address that we can split 50-50.
    If you look younger than 30 and want a beer, bring your ID please!

    Happy New Year to Everyone!

    I am a TV producer in SF and working on the story "The impact of Bitcoin to our society" for NHK(Japan Broadcasting Corp) Public Broadcaster. We are trying to show Bitcoin could be very useful for someone but you could be in trouble if used in wrong way. I am looking for a cafe or shop owner using Bitcoin to talk about how convenient Bitcoin is for them. I also would like to find someone who have used "Silk Road" website or might know "Ross Ulbricht", the administrator of Silk Road.

    We would like to do this filming between Jan. 8-10 here in SF Bay Area. Please send me a note to [masked]

    Thank you so much, Kazue
