Bitcoin Foundation throws up everything you need to know about Bitcoin on GitHub

Bitcoin is all about decentralization — and now even its foundation is taking this route.

The Bitcoin Foundation has announced a set of community resources on
GitHub to educate people about Bitcoin and its potential, its website announced today.

Today’s announcement details how the Bitcoin Foundation’s education
committee creates guides for the general public about Bitcoin. It also
describes the committee’s goal to decentralize information about the
alternative currency by having content creation available to anyone on
GitHub. Anyone can join the education committee and
contribute to, update, or edit the content on GitHub. Membership in the
committee will be determined by contributions, not by a decree.
The three objectives of the Bitcoin Foundation are the
standardization of, the protection of, and the promotion of Bitcoin. The
education committee focuses on promotion
of Bitcoin, which in the “context of public misunderstandings,
misinterpretations and misrepresentations” about Bitcoin, “allow[s] the
community to speak through a single source.” With this
method, the foundation seeks to improve Bitcoin’s reputation.
The committee has already created some guides, including an introduction to Bitcoin, suggestions on purchasing bitcoinchoosing a walletusing Bitcoin for business, and the currency’s technical side. The it documents the committee’s presence on social media, including their Twitter and Facebook, as well.
If this experiment in decentralized content creation is successful,
the committee won’t need a chairperson, which adds to the middle
man-less nature of Bitcoin. People in the committee would come and go as
they please. Ideas would gain and lose momentum as they become updated
or tossed aside. With GitHub, everyone’s work would be visible to the
public, and everyone could assist in educating the world about Bitcoin.
