A reminder to you regarding Overstock.com CEO Patrick Byrne’s plans to do a Q&A session on social sharing website Reddit.com.
It’s taking place right now (follow this link), as planned.
[blockquote style=”2″]14 years ago I launched Overstock.com. Today, despite the great dotcom bubble and several financial downturns, Overstock.com has grown to become one of the largest internet retailers on the planet. The best idea I ever had is Worldstock, the fair trade division of Overstock.com, which sells the work of thousands of artisans in developing nations, and has become one of the largest fair trade organizations in the world.[/blockquote]
Patrick Byrne was the recipient of much attention in November of last year, when he announced to the world that his online store would be accepting Bitcoin payments — making it the first major company in the world to do so.
He’s a staunch supporter of crypto-currencies, if you haven’t already guessed.
[blockquote style=”2″]I’m indifferent to controversy, and have stirred things up with my decade-long battle against corruption on Wall Street, my ardent support for school vouchers, and my advocacy of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin.[/blockquote]
So far, many of the questions asked by Redditors involve digital currency, so if you’re looking to get your question in, now’s the time.
