Welcome to episode 16 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell.
I was excited to talk to Bruce Fenton at the recent Texas Bitcoin Conference. It was a fun conversation, and I think it gives a good sense of Bruce as a person. He answered my questions about the exclusive Satoshi Roundtable Bitcoin retreat he organized, and filled me in about his impressive background in financial management. Our interview concluded with passionate exposition by Bruce. Note that we spoke before Bruce was elected by the Bitcoin Foundation Board as their new Executive Director.
I also spoke with Scott Rose, who I was familiar with from his popular comedic video series, "Shit Bitcoin Fanatics Say." Scott's background as an actor and a hired speaker for Apple, combined with his passion for Bitcoin, makes him a great cryptocurrency proponent. This is demonstrated in his recent Austin Nerd Night presentation called "Bitcoin 101: What Happens When We Decentralize Money?". I often think Bitcoin needs better P.R., and Scott did his part with this presentation.
If you wonder why you hear traffic in the background, most of my interviews from this conference took place in the patio area outside of the Moody Theater. This is where the exhibitor's booths were located, and also where most people congregated when they weren't watching presentations.

You’ve seen these keychains on dozens and dozens of websites, it’s about time you had one of your own! These substantial metal keychains make great conversation starters, and they also make great gifts to or from Bitcoiners. You can find a list of online retailers at Bkeychain.com, and several support Bitcoin so much, they don’t even accept fiat currency. So what are you waiting for?
