Practical Mesh Networking
Suppose we'd like to solve the problem of making sure that individuals in repressive regimes have an alternative to traditional ISPs in order to get access to uncensored access to the Internet. The need for such technology is pressing, as governments around...

Is running your own XMPP server, and then configuring transports so that server logs in multiple networks as you so that you only need an XMPP client still a thing?

I vaguely remember doing it about 10 years ago, but have no idea what software to even use for that now.

Bank of America has a staff of 20 people for "social media trolling".

I'm pretty sure paid trolls are the reason my Ignore list is so long over on bitcointalk.org.

This is why I like OT's design, it's focused on solving trust problems without "decentralize all the things".

Spendability and the Evolution of the Wallet Metaphor
What is a wallet? It's a place where you store your money before your spend it. A Bitcoin wallet, then, must be a piece of software that does the same thing for your Bitcoins. That's the metaphor we've been using since the first version of the Bitcoin softw...

The Texas Bitcoin Conference will allow attendees to explore this new technology from a host of angles.  It will help answer the questions a range of people have about Bitcoin and what it means, to them personally, to their businesses and to the future.  The Conference will be organized into three speaking tracks, an exhibit hall in the pit lane garages, an open air networking lobby and a number of additional opportunities.

No matter your knowledge level or involvement with Bitcoin, you will feel welcome and come away with valuable information putting you ahead of the curve.

A little bit of everything
I one made the mistake of assuming this store sold food, which I thought would be a reasonable assumption considering that it's called a Food Store. What this place actually sells is "food": synthetic food-like substances packaged in plastic and made from petroleum products, cellulose, and HFCS. If you want some actual food you need to drive a bit further to the HEB up the street.
