Discuss bitcoin over coffee or breakfast

For our first meetup I thought we could meet at one of the two places in town that accepts bitcoin as payment. They aren't open past 3PM so I thought a Saturday morning could work.

I'm imagining something fairly informal. Some short intros and then maybe just an open discussion / Q&A ? If people are into some trading we can do that as well.

With such a new technology and with accelerating developments I find there is always something interesting to discuss about bitcoin.

I'd really like it if people could make an effort to come to this. 

Please let me know if there is an issue with the location and/or time.

    It was great meeting you all on Saturday. It was great fun just meeting some new friends who have something in common

    Thanks to everybody that showed up. It really was a great first meetup. We had 6 people total and between bites of a tasty breakfast we had some really good discussions. I deem this meetup a success and am looking forward to the next one.

    No problem to the people that tried to come but couldn't make it. We've had an offer from Bill Finley (owner of Hemp & Company downtown) to use his store after 6PM as a venue for the meetup. Hopefully this different time will allow more people to attend.

    I've posted a photo of the 6 of us in the gallery.

    Hey guys - this rain, my flat bike tire, and a developing chest cold are all reasons why I'm sorry I have to change my RSVP to no this morning. I am definitely interested in getting together though, and our store (Hemp & Company) is totally on board with BitCoin. It's only going to get better. I'll make it out to the next meeting. Hope there's a good turnout today!

    Hi all, i'm experienced in the forex market, but BitCoin is new to me. I have done some research and am fascinated by this idea. I have some questions that I couldn't really find answers to online, maybe you guys can help me shed some light. See you all on Saturday!

    Sounds great to me. I'll see you folks there. I just helped to set up some of the Bitcoin implementation at H&C, so I'm happy to talk about my experience (some of the technical hurdles, etc).

    See you Saturday, Craig. Even if you can pop in for a bit, Ribby, it would be great.

    I'll try to make it but Saturday is going to be busy for me

    True for me! I was getting up earlier in the summer. Of course "10 AM" is really 9 AM. Fall equinox is long past and so should DST be.

    I've adjusted this to 10AM because 9AM was just too early.
