  • That article actually has a pretty nice discussion -- the original post is a little hasty and misinformed, but the comments are useful. Note that nullc (in the comments) is GMaxwell, a bitcoin dev.   I'd heard similar arguments to what ferreti…
  • I had diversified a lot into alt coins, but in the last couple weeks I've sold em all off for BTC. From listening to Andreas Antonopulous and others, it just seems like no alt really has much chance to become as big as Bitcoin unless Bitcoin fails. …
  • Dusty, do low energy bluetooth devices give off EMFs? I ordered one of these for a variety of reasons (thanks for the link Steve!) and just interested. I also have a handful of iBeacons sitting on my desk and maybe they're doping me up too? :P   …

  • Here's a great talk by Bobby Lee, CEO of BitChina, given at Stanford on December 9th. He's a sharp guy and good presenter, very worth an hour if you're interested in bitcoin. It's a great overview of bitcoin as well as the Chinese take on it.    …
  • Dusty, good info, thanks. It looks like one of those tough calls where it could be a legit operation that just has some loose ends. The site does look good and a couple of links that were broken yesterday are working now (in particular, links to the…
  • The Managed Forex Hub funds are peforming fairly good so far this month. 4 of the 5 are positive so it should result in a net monthly positive average. The diversied approach is clever. You can view the average of their programs here: http://www.man…
  • It's been an interesting weekend, for sure. I've bought a little during the dip and the price seems to be stabilized somewhat. I still believe in the long term concept so am happy to get in and hold. We'll see...    Good charts here, btw http:…
  • ===== Bitcoin is supposed to be a form of money, so making a trade as well as holding onto them are both valid options. Two criteria of money are to be a medium of exchange and a store of wealth.   I agree that they're not like stock. Buyin…
  • Joe, nice interview, I think it came off great.    I'm thinking to see about getting in on an alternate crypto currency or two. Why do you mention peercoin and litecoin in particular? There seem to be a host of currencies: http://coinmarket…
  • Awesome plan, well done! One quick note -- the Rich Dad Poor Dad philosophy is interesting in a couple of aspects. First, your house is not an asset. While it's awesome to own your home, just keep in mind it isn't necessarily a means to building you…
  • Here's a brand new book by Anna Coulling who is Mark Boardman's (mentioned above) mentor. She has several highly regarded books and this is a new one on beginning forex trading:     Forex For Beginners by Anna Coulling Link: http://amz…
  • I'd second Discourse, also as a fan of stackoverflow. However, looking through the forums on the list, I was pretty drawn to Vanilla forums:   http://vanillaforums.com   Most forums look and behave like they were built in 1998 and are st…
  • Thanks guys! Here's a forum for internet marketing that looks pretty promising, seems very active: Warrior Forum. There's a ton of info on there about niche sites and even a lot of people who will create one for you for about $100. I may actually tr…
  • Great topic and excellent link Steven. As will happen with me, I got totally obsessed, read most of his website and registered a couple of domains. Now I'm wondering if I've gone off the deep end and not sure how much work I'll need to do it right. …
  • Me too... been in the Apple dev program for a few years with an app perpetually half finished. It's tough to get to shipping, but it's a nice language and environment. 
  • Great topic, thanks for the many suggestions. I'm curious about the Rich Dad training -- there's a free seminar here next month that I think I'll check out. Has anyone done those and/or the follow-on paid 3 day seminars? Are they worth it? Expensive…
