We need a writrer.
+1 Calem - we should reach out and clarify. If there’s no strings attached to the original article offer, we should take it.
And as for the charity raffle, would anyone be able to compile a list of local and regional publications to send a press release to? UK based I’m assuming. We could write something up - “Human Interest” type of thing - and get in touch with the editors.
Right, shall I email him asking if the offer for 700 words for free is still available? (just checking that no one else is doing so.)
For sure Ruthie if you could. That would be really great ahy.
set up a blog
write it up
spam it everywhere
enough with all this shady crap

+1 Zero’s suggestion. We probably don’t need to pay for any printed press releases, at least not yet; I think our reputation stands on its own. A developers blog, or some such, with regular (if only minor) updates would keep the masses engaged, much in the way that the newsletter has.
It would be nice to have articles written up for each learning curve/challenge faced, which we can use as a body of evidence to any potential investors/journalists should they come knocking…

first 51% attack that we know of came in the run up to our first meet up and our first ever transaction at The Oxford Blue July 20th 2013, if my memory serves me correctly we had 3 51% attacks in that week alone.
I think we had 2 more following closely behind.
After much debate Advanced Check Pointing the block chain became our solution.
Link and Flux - I’m sorry I do not know much about these projects and things get too techenical for me
Forum hack - Dec 13, was exactly that, we were already in the process of changing the website and the hack led us to getting more secure forum software.
Cheers for the idea’s. I’ll continue building on what I have when i get a day off next. I’ll see if I can finish this myself, i just may need to ask the community for idea’s from time to time.
