AMA in progress: Link
It was just about a week ago when the Bitcoin Foundation announced a Reddit AMA series in the spirit of transparency (AMA stands for “ask me anything”). The idea, as you might have already guessed, is designed to give the bitcoin community easy access to asking questions to some of the well-known entities at the Foundation.
Last week, the first to be asked questions by the community was Jim Harper, who serves as Global Policy Counsel at the Foundation. This week, someone else it up, and that someone is Gavin Andresen.
Andresen serves as “Chief Scientist” at the Bitcoin Foundation.
Here’s his bio:
[blockquote style=”2″]Gavin is one of the original developers of the Bitcoin protocol and is a leading contributor to the Bitcoin SourceForge project. Since Satoshi Nakamoto’s disappearance Gavin has been an informal ambassador for the network. At the Bitcoin Foundation, Gavin heads a team of programmers who work to improve and standardize the existing code. Before joining the Bitcoin movement, Gavin was part of a wide variety of software-related ventures, including a company that made multiplayer online games for blind people and their sighted friends. Gavin started his career writing software at Silicon Graphics Computer Systems, a 3D graphics hardware company. He is creator of ClearCoin and BitcoinFaucet.[/blockquote]
The AMA session is slated to begin at 11 a.m. Eastern time, presumably on the Bitcoin subreddit, so stay tuned.
What kind of questions would you ask Gavin?
