Bitcoin into & workshop

For the Free Software Festival, Bitcoin Manchester is putting together an intro and workshop on Bitcoin. It will be in three parts:

Intro to Bitcoin: A short talk on what it is, how it works, and why it it’s so important

Demo on creating and using Bitcoin wallets. We’ll show you how to sign up for an easy, convenient wallet on Blockchain.info, suitable for everyday use and small amounts. We’ll also show you the more technical but extremely secure Armory wallet and how to keep your coins off the internet entirely.

Finally, if anyone wants help or advice setting up a wallet, we’ll be around at the end to give one-on-one support.
