Hi folks...I'd appreciate a little feedback on the Technical Guide for Non-Techies at: https://bitcoinfound...sers/#entry6829

I meant to say on the telecon I was working on it but due to my brilliant microphone issues I was distracted ;-)

Does there exist a list of documents/pamphlets one/pagers that should exist ...or that people would like to see exist? (by the education committee folks)

For example I think it would be useful for the Foundation to have a 1 or 2 pager that is a real beginner beginner guide...maybe a "Non-Technical Guide to Bitcoin for Non-Technical People" (title definitly not cast in stone).  Think of it as what kind of sheet would you give your mother to explain bitcoin ... anyway is there a list or can we start a list?

In order to get involved should I wait for next hangout? For what I see is weekly

There are some interesting actions points in the minutes from yesterday's meeting.

For example these caught my attention:
  • Bitcoin 101
  • Content creation project
  • Bitcoin liaison for external orgs.

Thanks!
