BitCoin Infomercial

How much did BitInstant pay for this infomercial?

I hope it was not only lodging and travel.

It's good content about something very relevant to market agorism. Also, broadcasting from NYC was for me an exciting change from the regular show. It was nice to hear from a wide variety of people at the event rather than just Mark, Ian and a third change as per usual.

I enjoy these type of broadcasts, similar to them airing at the NH Liberty Forum and PorcFest. We all have our tastes I suppose but for me this episode was a real treat.

Sure, but I just want to know about cash transfers.

I am sure Mark and Ian didn't drive down to Manhattan to do this show for nothing.

Well aren't BitCoin and BitInstant sponsors of Free Talk Live? Besides, does it matter, there's nothing wrong with a mutually beneficial exchange, that's what the market's all about. :)

Listeners win - great program
Mark and Ian win - make more money
BitInstant win - great publicity.

I doubt Mark will tell you how much they paid beyond food, travel, and lodging expenses.  That would give away too much information about FTL's advertising costs to potential advertisers.  One of my clients pays 5x more than one of my company's other clients for the same services.  It would not be to our benefit for our clients to know our fees.

I thought it was a valuable show and wish that there was more information like that out on the web other than Wikipedia and the ridiculously techie bitcoin forum.

It would be useful, when spreading the gospel of bitcoin, to have a resource like that. Similar to the SBSS videos on youtube when talking about silver.

So... thanks for the show.

BitInstant made a long-term advertising commitment to FTL. I wanted to see their new offices. They wanted to cover 2 hotel rooms, but we would only let them buy one. I thought it would make for a good show. I wouldn't necessarily do this for another advertiser, but I thought it would be good programming and I think it was.

No one has conjectured that I could quite possibly be a Libertarian posing as an Anarchist trying to pretend to still be a Libertarian; or what I like to call an Anarcho-Hustler.

I agree.  It was a nice change from the standard format.
