November's theme will be looking "under the hood" of Bitcoin. Is it really just a "decentralized, distributed notary service" as one of the developers puts it? What do miners actually do, and what's the cryptography behind Bitcoin all about? If you have any other topics you would like to discuss, please let Richard know.
We talk tech and can do some trading of bitcoins. Bring your ideas, questions, and even your laptop if you'd like to demonstrate an idea or website. We meet at the North Side Social in Arlington, very near the Clarendon Metrorail Station on the Orange Line. Parking is also easy to find. The meeting is on election day--remember to vote.
