Okay, so the January event was snowed out. In fact, January was snowed out. February is showing signs of pretty much going the same way, but we at the Louisville Digital Association have faith that you all will still show up on the 26th of February at iHub to learn about Bitcoins! Okay, we really have faith that you want out of the house and that this is a good enough topic for you to escape the kids or the cats for an evening of learning about cool stuff, developing resources, and/or meeting up with your friends.
We are bringing in Lamar Wilson from Lexington to offer us a shortened version of his famous Bitcoin 101 to give us a look at how our world may be changed by the current cybercurrency revolution. Lamar and his partner in Lexington IT company 212ths, Lafe Taylor embrace Bitcoin so completely that they are even accepting it as client payment.
Joining Lamar and Lafe, will be Andy Schroder, from the Greater Cincinnati area, an inventor and renewable fuels guru who has developed a mobile, automated fluid dispenser that accepts bit coin as the payment mechanism. He is setting up systems to make Bitcoin an integral part of his business.
Also coming is attorney Will Montague, a Lexington Corporate Attorney who has really dug into the legal questions surrounding Bitcoin and other virtual currencies. His blog is a good starting point for examining legal questions.
We are preparing a list of local business that accept Bitcoin to help promote local interest in the subject, so please email any that you know of to info@LouisvilleDigital.org.
Come out on the 26th and let us lead you down the path to cyber acceptance!
