Whether you've never heard of bitcoin or already own a few, want to learn or want to trade, this meetup is for regular folks and businesspeople alike. The point is to build a supportive group which serves to inform the larger community, providing valuable and fact-based information about the promises and pitfalls of this exciting new technology.  Also, the Bitcoin community tends to be predominantly male, so we'd like to express a particular welcome and enthusiasm for women to join us.  Open money is for everyone!
