So anyone know good reference material on blockchain tech for those of us not steeped in crypto?

OT: Anyone local to Chattanooga with 4 BTC to sell for cash

From: mdquerng 
------------------------------------------------------
Hi all

Short story: I have a customer that was hit two days ago with a new variant
of the Locky crypto ransomware called Zepto. Unfortunately this customer has
been more than a little lax with respect to their backup strategies and they
have a large number of business critical files on two servers that appear to
be unrecoverable.

The customer is to the point where they are willing to take the chance and
try and pay the ransom. The issue is that they have never used Bitcoin and
have no real way to get their hands on the 4 BTC needed in a timely manner
due to restrictions on the amount that can be purchased via the various
Bitcoin exchanges and how long it will take to receive the purchased
Bitcoins.

I'm reaching out to the group to see if there is someone local to
Chattanooga that already has 4 BTC available and might be interested in
transferring them to the customer's Bitcoin wallet, if the customer were to
meet them and give them cash likely plus a bit for your trouble. If this is
you, please contact me off list via this email address.


Best
Mark Quering

Free Software Photo Galleries

I wondered if anyone is familiar with a free software photo gallery
that offers facial recognition and tagging similar to most online
services (either natively or via a plugin)? To be clear, I'm talking
about server software to make a photo gallery available over the web.

I'm also curious if you know of any good photo galleries that offer
the option of storing your photos as files on the file system, instead
of in a database.

Overstock.com to accept Bitcoin

From: Lynn Dixon 
------------------------------------------------------
Overstock.com is set to become the largest US Retailer to accept Bitcoin:

http://money.cnn.com/2013/12/20/technology/innovation/overstock-bitcoin/index.html

Overstock is expected to have 1.3 billion in revenues in 2013.

I like this quote from their CEO:
"We're the guys who like gold," he said. "We think the monetary base should
not be something that a government can create with a stroke of a pen."

Giving Thanks..

From: Mike Harrison

eff.org.. mozilla.org.. apache.org...archive.org.. and hundreds of other 
worthy places would appreciate a little "thanks" for their efforts to protect FOSS
and related activities.

Many of them will take some bitcoin as well as paypal, credit cards, etc..

Tomorrow is "Thanks Giving" and I invested $100 (spread it out) to say 
"Thank You", I'm imploring you to do the same where and how you see fit 
and are able.
