200 Bitcoin Meetups and Counting

Last night I went to Strange Brew Tavern in Manchester for their 200th bitcoin meetup. It is the longest running consecutive bitcoin meet up in the world — going for almost 4 years now.

People talked about mining ethereum and being dash masternodes — they talked about successful strategies for encouraging businesses and individuals to take cryptocurrencies as payment — and they talked about achieving more personal freedom in New Hampshire. I was impressed by the turnout. About 2 dozen or so people. A range of all types: gay and straight, techies, real estate people, media people, old, middle aged, and young mothers and their children. The group gets the whole back room in the tavern and received excellent service the whole night.

I asked if I could tip my waiter in bitcoin, but he said that he doesn’t have a wallet anymore. He got a new phone and lost all the bitcoin the patrons had given him over the past years. After that, he was really sour on bitcoin and was unwilling to accept it, even as a tip on top of the cash tip I left him. After about 2 hours of chatter, people started to clear out. I was disappointed that there wasn’t a big photo op moment where everyone crowded in and memorialized this event. I supposed I could have tried organizing that, but I didn’t.

I should mention also that there’s another bar in Manchester, Murphy’s Taproom, that not only accepts bitcoin but they also have one of the best bitcoin vending machines for hundreds of miles around. I don’t understand why this bitcoin meetup group doesn’t support Murphy’s and instead goes to a place that doesn’t accept bitcoin, but I see it as an opportunity. There can be a meetup for the crowd that likes cheap beer and a meetup for a crowd that likes to spread bitcoin.

For now, I’ll continue spreading the word about bitcoin in my hometown of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, where my Bikram Yoga Studio started accepting bitcoin this week. Namaste.

I should add:

Weekly meetups like the one in Manchester give the bitcoin community a pulse. It says to the world, “We’re alive and growing — bitcoin hasn’t gone anywhere.” In fact, the people at this meetup would be just as happy to help a n00b set up their first bitcoin wallet as they would to discuss Ethereum mining or their Dash Masternode. Manchester’s monumental 200th meetup also shows outsiders that crypto is mainstream — not a bunch of geeks in forums. Bitcoiners are your neighbors, your waitress, and the guys playing pool at the bar.

Uber Driver Arrested for Felony “Wiretapping”

Christopher DavidUber driver Christopher David, age 29, turned himself over to law enforcers in Portsmouth New Hampshire yesterday, Friday, November 6, 2015 after the gang issued an order to kidnap him for the alleged crime of felony wiretapping. The charge was in response to a YouTube video posted by David featuring an encounter he had while picking up passengers from the Daniel Street Tavern. In the recording, a doorman and part-time cab driver called “Big Mike” can be heard snitching on David to a nearby law enforcer (operating an Uber is violation of a Portsmouth city ordinance). The enforcer chose to exercise discretion in that instance and did not issue a ticket (or even a warning) to David. However “Big Mike” complained to law forcers about the YouTube video and had David charged with wiretapping. That is a Class B Felony in New Hampshire, punishable by up to 7 years in prison.

The Case for a Gaynarchist Society | Flaming Freedom

Hosts Derrick JSteven Zeiler, and Joe Jarvis

Guest Christopher David won’t stop being a criminal! He just keeps giving customers rides in his car! The all-important and wise political masters who call themselves “the City of Portsmouth” have decided that Uber is illegal, and anyone who drives for Uber in their gang’s territory has to pay them thousands of dollars to get back in their good graces. But Christopher David is ignoring their threats and doing it anyway. Learn more here.

Christopher Chase Rachels is a fellow Gaynarchist and author of the newly released book, “A Spontaneous Order: The Capitalist Case for a Stateless Society.” Pick up a paperback at your favorite Anarchist book store, or if you have Amazon prime, you can get it FREE today!

When he asked for a round of applause, he didn’t expect to get the clap! Derrick J talks about getting tested for HIV and treatment for his gonorrhea. (EW!) Nathan the Ninja Squirrel calls in to share an upcoming app that lets users rate other people in their personal, professional, and romantic lives. Finally, we have a good hearty laugh at the senile dictator Robert Mugabe’s expense. His country not only suffered embarrassing levels of hyperinflation under his reign, it also has the distinction of being the only place on the planet where same-sex kissing, hand-holding, and even hugging is criminal. How progressive!
