18 Bitcoin Wallets Installed, Hundreds Flyered @ Cheshire Fair 2015

Last year, Keene liberty activists manned a bitcoin outreach booth at the Cheshire Fair. In that five days, we installed a grand total of three bitcoin wallets (though we did hand out hundreds of bitcoin flyers). This year, we did it again and installed eighteen wallets, had dozens of great conversations, and shared bitcoin intro flyers with hundreds more fair attendees! Despite a couple of minor issues, the fair outreach booth went swimmingly! A couple of people used the original Keene bitcoin vending machine at the fair, and many others were directed to the BVM at 101 Deals Thrift Store for future purchases.

Fair attendees had plenty of good questions and our professional staff of bitcoin-enthusiasts had answers, including Derrick J Freeman and Chris Cantwell. Thanks to all the folks who helped with the booth and everyone who stopped by. If you want to meet with other area bitcoiners, drop into the Keene Bitcoin Network group on Facebook.

VICE Covers Buzz’s Gay Dance Party!

In at least their fourth story in the last few years related to the Free State Project, the excellent VICE.com has focused in on the amazing Buzz’s Big Gay Dance Party which had its final of six years this year at the Porcupine Freedom Festival.  Porcfest will continue, perhaps with a new epic party – only time will tell.

For now, enjoy Michelle Lhooq’s report on Buzz’s final awesome bash and the photos (then come to Hallowkeene at Keenevention 2015!)

For additional perspective on being gay at Porcfest, visit Joe Jarvis’ blog of his experience at this year’s week-long camping festival populated by mostly libertarians and voluntarists.  If you love liberty, regardless of sexual orientation, you’ll probably really enjoy Porcfest.

Here’s the excellent story about the BGDP from VICE.

Memorial Day Parade Peace Contingent Grows to Record Size

For the fourth year, a peace contingent has marched at the end of the Memorial Day parade in downtown Keene – this year with record participation!  Three liberty-friendly families came out to participate, including Free State Project early movers.  As with previous years, reception was mostly warm with plenty of waves, smiles, and thank yous.  Of course, there was the requisite heckler and a few snide comments – one woman told her kids “don’t even look at them”, and turned around and walked away!

Multiple peace flags were carried and worn and signage included memorials to a father and grandfather and “Stop the US War Machine”. Thanks to all the participants and see you next year!

Major Perk Changes for LRN.FM’s African Satellite Fundraiser

AMOS-5 Signal Coverage

AMOS-5 Signal Coverage

The LRN.FM African satellite Indiegogo fundraiser has been going about three weeks now and we’re not quite to 10% of the goal. In hopes of picking up some more contributors, some important changes have been made to the perks. Now the “Sit in-studio” perk, which allows you to pick your favorite show and then hang out in-studio during a recording session, is only $1,000, down from $5,000. Of course, you still have to cover your own travel and hotel expenses, but putting it at $1,000 should put it in the reach of more people.

New perks include $100 to have Angel Clark record a custom voicemail greeting for you and also new recognition perks for $5, $10, and $25.

Please, if you have already shared the fundraiser, can you share it again? http://africa.lrn.fm
