I’m happy to announce major changes to the Shire Society forums and the Free Keene commenting system! First, please visit the all-new Shire Society Forum – it’s now being run by modern forum software that should make posting and responding easier than ever. Plus, social networking capability is built-in! That means you can login with your facebook or twitter and easily share interesting posts via your social network!
In addition, I’ve changed out the Disqus comments here on Free Keene with a new provider, Livefyre. Don’t worry, all your old comments made on the Disqus system are still present in the new system. Hope you enjoy the changes!
The easiest way is in-person, from either another human, or in this case, a Bitcoin Vending Machine (BVM).
101 Deals Thrift Store just opened its doors on Monday at 661 Marlboro St. (NH RT-101) in Keene and on their first day of business, the Skyhook BVM was present, offering to sell bitcoin to anyone with a bitcoin wallet (usually on their smartphone).
If you don’t have a bitcoin wallet yet, there are a couple of very popular ones you can download for your favorite phone operating system: Blockchain or Mycelium. Once you have your wallet installed, drop into 101 Deals (seven-days-a-week!) with some cash and try out the Bitcoin Vending Machine.
101 Deals’ Proprietors James Cleaveland and Jay Freeville
Liberty activists are back at the 2014 Cheshire Fair for our third year! In addition to the usual liberty-oriented propaganda, this year’s booth features a bitcoin vending machine! If you haven’t gotten started with bitcoin yet, drop by and we can set you up with a free bitcoin wallet from Blockchain.com and you can fund the wallet with bitcoin via the vending machine at the table.
Last night there was a DUI checkpoint in Manchester, NH. Some activists caught wind about the event and created signs to warn drivers to divert their paths. Dozens of activists participated, and probably hundreds of drivers were saved from unwanted interactions with police. Some people handed out “Know Your Rights” cards to passers-by on the street. I took video throughout the night to document this effective activism. One of the highlights of my night was rolling through the traffic stop with James “Robin Hood” Cleaveland. The checkpoint begins 5 minutes into the video. Here’s how it went:
Do you love to watch the activist videos you see at FreeKeene.com? Did you know that there are two “raw” channels where you can find all the uncut versions of the footage–before they hit the editing room floor? Garret Ean and I upload all of our footage to YouTube daily, whether it gets used or not. If you’re a skeptic, this is a great way to call out the activists for what you believe they’ve edited out. Dig in! Here’s just a taste of what you’ve been missing:
