DJing in San Francisco
For the last 10 years I’ve been djing. Sure I’ve been running startups and advising others as well but I’ve been doing enough djing to actually call myself a dj.
I think there is 3 tests you have to pass before you can call yourself a dj
- You can dj vinyl
- You’ve been paid to dj
- You’ve been flown somewhere to dj
(To make it as a professional dj (which I have not done) I think you need to also be producing music)
Anyway, when I moved to San Francisco in mid 2011 I decided to hang up my records, so to speak but quickly realized that djing is the way I get connected to the city, it’s people and the scene generally… so I started playing again
2014 is going to be a big year for Planwise, the startup I came here to setup – it’s going to be a big year for fintech generally but I think we have the emergence of bitcoin into the mainstream to thank for that.
Bitcoin Only in 2014
Accordingly this year I’ve decided that any djing gigs I get booked to play will require payment in bitcoins only.
The current rate is 0.1 BTC per hour, minimum of 2 hours.
If you want to learn to dj I can do this too, the rate for that is 0.1BTC for a 2 hour lesson
