Very useful tool in explaining Bitcoin to people who don't know what it is/are skeptical about its legitimacy. http://vimeo.com/duncanelms/bitcoinexplained

Has anyone been on reddit/r/bitcoin recently? I feel like the whole mood of the board has shifted.

It seems that the negative posts about bitcoin are getting tons of up votes. And judging by the comments some people are VERY bitter about the price rise of bitcoin.

The reality is all the people who didn't buy at all or who bought and sold are now very angry with themselves and showing signs of cognitive dissonance about bitcoins price rise.

Should take it as a good sign I guess, lol.

I think people should expect that the price of Bitcoin will rise significantly... if it gains widespread adoption and a player like Amazon begins accepting payment for example, There simply won't be enough coin to support everyone buying in complete Bitcoin. The design only allows for 21 million Bitcoin. We will be trading in fractions of Bitcoin.

The name Bitcoin is probably going to be an unfortunate one - 1 Bitcoin is far more like 1 bar of gold. We trade gold in ounces. Actual bars are worth 10's of thousands - which would have to be the value of a single coin in order to support a global economy.

In addition - people will lose their wallets. Bitcoin will leave the system and not return, further limiting the supply of Bitcoins.

This is all speculative - but I think if Bitcoins become a real global currency, then they would have to be worth significantly more.

I'm in the same boat. Get paid next week and can then get some more. I used Bitinstant for all my first purchases, then I just used Coinbase and tested it with .2 BTC and I actually think I am going to be using Coinbase from now on.

The fees are ridiculously lower than Bitinstant, and I don't have to go to the check place to send a Moneygram, I can just do it from home. It does take like 5 days to get the coins, but it's useful because you lock in your price at the time of purchase.

So when the coins are actually released to you they're worth more, feels kind of cool. :D

Has anyone else heard about Litecoin being in the works to trade on Mt. Gox? They sent out a tweet from their verified twitter account confirming.

There is a tweet by MtGox saying that they have plans: http://i.imgur.com/FKEhkWr.png

But that picture on the IRC is indeed altered.

Re inventing your reality since 1991
Introduction
I'm a lover of technology, literature, philosophy and people. I am the messiah.

33°

0. All the Power that ever was or will be is here now.

1. I am a center of expression for the Primal Will-to-Good which eternally creates and sustains the Universe.

2. Through me its unfailing Wisdom takes form in thought and word.

3. Filled with Understanding of its perfect law, I am guided, moment by moment, along the path of liberation.

4. From the exhaustless riches of its Limitless Substance, I draw all things needful, both spiritual and material.

5. I recognize the manifestation of the Undeviating Justice in all the circumstances of my life.

6. In all things, great and small, I see the Beauty of the Divine Expression.

7. Living from that Will, supported by its unfailing Wisdom and Understanding, mine is the Victorious Life.

8. I look forward with confidence to the perfect realization of the Eternal Splendor of the Limitless Light.

9. In thought and word and deed, I rest my life, from day to day, upon the sure Foundation of Eternal Being.

10. The Kingdom of Spirit is embodied in my flesh.

Favorite Quotations
“And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions.” — Joel 2:28

“Fortunately, some are born with a spiritual immune systems that sooner or later gives rejection to the illusory worldview grafted upon them from birth through social conditioning. They begin sensing that something is amiss, and start looking for answers. Inner knowledge and anomalous outer experiences show them a side of reality others are oblivious to, and so begins their journey of awakening. Each step of the journey is made by following the heart instead of following the crowd and by choosing knowledge over the veils of ignorance.”
— Henri Bergson

“The planet has a kind of intelligence, it can actually open a channel of communication with an individual human being. The message that nature sends is, transform your language through a synergy between electronic culture and the psychedelic imagination, a synergy between dance and idea, a synergy between understanding and intuition, and dissolve the boundaries that your culture has sanctioned between you, to become part of this Gaian supermind.”
— Terrance McKenna

“I never wish to be easily defined. I’d rather float over other people’s minds as something strictly fluid and non-perceivable; more like a transparent, paradoxically iridescent creature rather than an actual person.”
— Franz Kafka; Diary entry 3/23/1914

“Not only were many of the founders of the United States Government Masons, but they received aid from a secret and august body existing in Europe, which helped them to establish this country for a peculiar and particular purpose known only to the initiated few. The Great Seal is the signature of this exalted body - unseen and for the most part unknown - and the unfinished pyramid upon its reverse side is a trestleboard setting forth symbolically the task to the accomplishment of which the United States Government was dedicated from the day of its inception.”
— Manly P. Hall

"There is no loftier mission than to approach the Divinity nearer than other men, and to disseminate the divine rays among mankind." — Beethoven
