Jay in Oregon  Feb 28, 2014 • 9:27:56am

I’ve got 4 coworkers who are into Bitcoin (one of them lost the 3/4s of a BTC he had in Mt. Gox), and they’re all late 20’s-early 30’s white guys in technical fields. But we’re all hourly and probably pulling in about $40K a year. The amount of Bitcoins they own is probably in the hundreds of dollars’ worth; BTC can apparently be divided into fragments as small as 1/100,000,000 of a BTC (or 1 “satoshi”), so they probably have 3-5 BTC between them.

One of them considers himself a liberal but he’s also been sucked into the Greenwald-Snowden fanboyism; I’m not sure about the other three.

re: #1 Jay in Oregon

The engineering/CS overlap with libertarianism is really interesting to me. It’s the whole “I got here through hard work and brain power” thing that doesn’t leave any room for the vagaries of fate and life opportunities.

Indeed, they put absolutely no thought into those opportunities that they had in order to get where they are primarily because they don’t know anyone who didn’t have those same opportunities.
