Aha, perfect question.

Not quite. The reason is because they expect their reader's unit of account to be the dollar.

You're coming here saying your unit of bitcoin account is 1-BCT, but I'm telling you that new people are just gonna make their bitcoin unit of account the 1-mBTC and they will be mBTC natives who have no trouble at all thinking in terms of mBTC.

This is what I was trying to get across by my language example.

And that step is what, exactly? Offering people an option of BTC or mBTC? The site already does that. Having an up-front explanation that 1000 mBTC is worth 1 BTC--the site already does that.

I really don't think it's excluding anyone.

Oh you want them to show both mBTC values and BTC?

What's the point really. Do you want retailers to do the same thing? Because the idea is to help out retailers.

Most purchases are going to be under $50. Do you you want retailers to list products like this?

"New Book" - 30 mBTC (0.03 BTC) ???

4.2 millibitcoins (a nickname would likely be adopted here, like "millies").
I heard someone say "embee" and I actually like that better :P

Micro-bitcoins would then become Mikey's by the usual suggestion of the likely nickname, but under this alternate scheme would be "yubee." Which also somehow sounds better.

Obamacare Is Falling Apart Before Our Eyes
Quote:
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced, in the form of a letter to Democratic senators, that Obamacare’s individual mandate tax will be waived in 2014 for persons who had their policies canceled in 2013 due to Obamacare.

At this point, after months of on-the-fly pronouncements, delays, and exemptions (often announced, not coincidentally, in the days just before a major national holiday), perhaps nothing should surprise us anymore about Obamacare’s disastrous rollout. But yesterday’s announcement is still startling because of what it says about the state of the president’s signature domestic legislation. The law is falling apart before our eyes.

Boston Terrier's are fucking stupid and the most disgusting dog breed I have ever had. They are also extremely loyal though.
