What do I do with and regarding Bitcoin?
I run an online retailer that accepts Bitcoin, and offer to help others set up their own store.
I run a facebook and twitter social media campaign in my town to get businesses in my town to accept Bitcoin.
I contact the local media about BTC when appropriate, I send Bitcoin-related fliers. (let me know if you want one, I have plenty to go around!)
I wear Bitcoin shirts in public as conversation starter.
And OF COURSE I accept and spend Bitcoin whenever it is an option. I have hand about 17 face-to-face Bitcoin transactions in the last 7 weeks.
In the past, I have participated in the Bitcoin Weight Loss Challenge in an attempt to draw media attention to Bitcoin. It was a contest among 11 Bitcoin enthusiasts to see who could lose the largest percentage of their weight over the course of 12 weeks. 4 participants pulled out, but among the remaining 7, I got 4th place.
