Jon Matonis, the executive director of the Bitcoin Foundation, will be joining us. The meetup is informal and unstructured. The venue is Hin & Weg Gare -- it's a 5 min. walk away from Zürich Hauptbahnhof (HB).
NOTE: This meetup is on a Wednesday -- not as usually on a Tuesday.

I am the guy who built the analogue BTC ATM in Weimar <http://blog.maschinenraum.tk/bitcoin>
Quite a few people I have told about it at the meetup expressed the wish to have such a thing also in Zurich.It's possible to do, but I would need the help of some locals regarding spots to put it etc, and I would also be open to collaboration with existing projects here.
I will be at the next meetup to talk more about the project, so till then if you want to help out: - Keep your eyes open for interesting locations to put such a machine, possible even existing machines we could re-use.- If you are working on something cool (esp. hardware and services), think about if and how it could be integrated with (a variation of) such a machine
Keep in mind it is less about being practical (we could just by a Lamassu then), but more about building fun things that may have also an educational side and show positive aspects of Bitcoin to the general public).

I wanted to leave these links regarding California’s bill “AB-129 Lawful money: alternative currency”for Jon Matonis' consideration; while I'm not an advocate of regulation and approval from the State, I think this may be worth monitoring its progress as it moves through the process of becoming law--if only for novelty-anecdotal purposes.
In the first link you will see a more detailed list of the aforementioned competitive-community currencies in California, those whose name I oddly couldn't recall at the time.
I will leave about 9 p.m. to make room for others (and to catch the train).

Remember the last time Jon Matonis attended the meetup? Make sure you reserve all the tables ;)
