Are you interested in bitcoin from a technological, business, economic, or social perspective?

In January of this year, I became aware of bitcoin. At first it was the technology that grabbed me, although it took a whole week for me to "get it". Now, with the world economies in a complete mess, and with the quickening loss of privacy and rights, Bitcoin and similar future innovations seem to me a great part of the solution.

What expertise, skill, or aspirations do you wish to develop?

I'd like to develop more knowledge about Bitcoin itself and how it can used by ordinary people to help solve some of the above problems.

What expertise, skill, or ambition do you bring to the group?

I don't really have any super expertise in these areas, but am always receptive to innovative ideas and love researching about them.


I'm Don Ogilvie, a Canadian musician for many years.Even though my degree is in music, I've always been interested in math, sciences and computer technology. I'm also a member of the Mandarin Chinese meetup group.

What Don O. is saying about this Meetup Group

Awesome. The organizers are great. It's a much-needed organization to help navigate the uncharted waters of this ground-breaking technology.
