The Backyard Chickens Group here at has grown to 99 members.

Will you be the one to push us over the 100-member milestone?

Do you keep chickens? Or perhaps you're thinking about it? Or you've realized you're helplessly infatuated with all things feathered and fowl-like? If any of these descriptions sound like you, then you're likely to enjoy participating in this Group.

Members discuss topics ranging from:

  • egg production
  • coop designs
  • feeding your hens naturally
  • expanding flock size
  • processing chickens on your own
  • and many others

Become the 10th Member of the Bitcoin group!!!!!

Really.. it's a great place.  We have a hot tub, and often a keg on tap.  We have frozen mugs in the the mini-fridge.  Ping pong and foosball.  Join and we will send you free "Bitcoins smell better than Backyard Chickens" tee shirt.  OK.. not really.  Oh, and also, we need a 9th member before you can be the 10th member..   

Oh yeah, and we talk about Bitcoin.  Join here;

You don't have to love Bitcoin.. but you will definitely develop a broader understanding of money through it. 

And if you don't believe me that it's cool .. surely you will believe Al Jazeera, right?



Three kings

Large numbers of merchants and organisations have adopted the Bitcoin system since last year. Among the new adopters are three high profile internet companies that have announced implementation of Bitcoin as a payment option: Wordpress, Reddit and Mega. Wordpress, one of the largest global providers of online publishing services, forcefully explained in November the importance of Bitcoin for press freedom worldwide:

PayPal alone blocks access from over 60 countries, and many credit card companies have similar restrictions. Some are blocked for political reasons, some because of higher fraud rates, and some for other financial reasons. Whatever the reason, we don't think an individual blogger from Haiti, Ethiopia, or Kenya should have diminished access to the blogosphere because of payment issues they can't control. Our goal is to enable people, not block them.

Bitcoin is a digital currency that enables instant payments over the internet. Unlike credit cards and PayPal, Bitcoin has no central authority and no way to lock entire countries out of the network. Merchants who accept Bitcoin payments can do business with anyone.

Similarly, two other big internet players, with millions of users, have made the Bitcoin nod in recent weeks. Reddit, an epicentre of internet culture, as well as rebellious Kim Dot Com's recently launched data storage service, Mega, released corresponding announcements in recent weeks. The internetist (if I may invent this term) nature of Wordpress, Reddit and Mega has led to exposing millions of new users to Bitcoin. Their adoption spread far and apart seeds for a new "generation" of Bitcoin users, advocates, and developers.
