I first heard about bitcoin

I first heard about bitcoin here. The idea of a new alternative currency that is controlled by the people interested me. How people on this forum could turn their backs on this is beyond me. This could be part of the answer! Even if Bitcoin fails, at least people are thinking about new ways of releasing us from slavery. Any currency only has value, if we give it value, including silver and gold. No one is saying sell all your precious metals and buy bitcoins. I have a good stack of silver myself, but I am doing whatever I can to promote Bitcoin. I started mining coins a week or so ago and today I found Block 210000! That wont mean anything to those of you that dont follow bitcoins, but I was pretty excited.
