The Texas Bitcoin Conference is Coming Back to Austin ...

I am looking for reactions to the ABC Austin Bitcoin Conference.

I live maybe 20 minutes from Austin, yet unable to make the conference. I was wondering what different opinions there were about the conference and how attendees and/or speakers felt it went. What was awesome and what wasn't so good. And enjoy SXSW while you are here. Austin just might be the live music capital and bitcoin center of the world.

Have I ever told you I fu#&!ng love Bitcoin?

Scene: The shell station at mile marker 720 on I-10, between San Antonio and Houston.
I'm on my way home from visiting family and hanging out with the awesome folks at the Austin Bitcoin Conference. We stopped for gas at a shell station. I went inside to grab a snack. While waiting in line the guy notices the QR code on my bitcoin foundation tshirt and asks me if that goes to my web address. I say no, it's actually a Bitcoin donation address. The guy lights up, he has heard of Bitcoin and starts asking a million questions (you know how it is). While waiting in line I got him set up with his first Bitcoin wallet (mycellium FTW!!). Dude is pumped.
Then it gets surreal.
I go to pay for my large dr pepper and bag of cheesey puffs (dont you judge me!) and the total is $2.63. I pull out my debit card and the cashier starts waving his hand. "no, no. Minimum card purchase is $5"
This sucks. I have no cash on hand.
In talking to the cashieowner he says he gets charged 47 CENTS for transactions up to $5! I tell him he should take bitcoin and prepare to abandon my junk food.
Then the guy behind me puts cash on the counter and asks if I would just sell him bitcoin for the purchase price!!!
20 seconds later, I'm eating cheesey puffs and dude(his name was Tim) is playing around with his first milibits :)
Dr Pepper and Cheetos brand cheese puffs .0143BTC
Life is good.
Viva la Bitcoin.

Know Your Neighbour (Potential self regulation model?)

I have recently become enthralled with the idea of self regulation of companies since I heard Andreas talk about them at the Austin Bitcoin conference. The idea of risk pools is really intriguing. In essence what we need to accomplish is a game theoretic method for obtaining the following.
Requirement 1 is simple to achieve by directing customers towards members of the system.
Requirement 3 Is so that once a group of companies are established it is not beneficial for them to block younger less established companies from joining (assuming said company does not impose a larger risk then reward)
The risk pool that was discussed I think went something like this. All the companies have a shared pool and should one company fail. It falls on the other companies to make their customers whole.
From thinking on it this satisfies 2 but not 3. Since once an established group is satisfied by the risk as a collective it does not seem beneficial to introduce new risk in exchange for certifying a competitor.
My latest idea is this. Instead of a single pool what you have is a network. Requirement 1 is still satisfied as before. The difference is that companies only have to certify a limited number of "neighbours" in the network. When a company fails only the direct neighbours are responsible for making the customers whole. When a company wants to join the network they need to find enough companies willing to be their neighbours such that such that the neighbours are capable of covering their customers should they fail. In exchange the new company also agrees to cover their new neighbour should they fail (some fraction of course).
There is one additional constraint. At any time a company must have enough neighbours to cover it should it fail. This means that as a company grows it must create new neighbours. If it does not. It gets kicked out of the network. As such it is beneficial for a company to form neighbour relations as they grow with companies that they deem the risk to be minimal. This promotes the system to grow and not shut out younger companies. and still preserves the mutual auditing of the risk pool model.
Potential problems?
Note: I'm not an economist, or have any dealings in the financial or insurance sectors so there may be massive flaws in this plan.
What do you think?
