21ism Block03 - MEME - MICHAEL GOLDSTEIN aka @Bitstein
This month's featured Bitcoiner in our Meme category is the inimitable @Bitstein. A longtime master of memes and probably one of the first follows for all newcomers to the space. Apart from wanting to meme Bitcoin into the great unconscious he is also the founder of The Nakamoto Institute and, two excellently curated repositories for Bitcoin and Carnivourism, one half of the fantastic The Noded Bitcoin Podcast and the writer of articles such as Everyone's a Scammer.

21ism Block03 - CODE - NICOLAS DORIER
Our featured CODE/DEV this Birthday block is non other than Nicolas Dorier. Nicholas Dorier is a French Bitcoin Dev, now based in Japan, who felt so betrayed & angry about BitPay’s malign actions during the 2017 Blocksize War that he coded an Open-Source alternative from scratch. The now famous tweet that started it all is perhaps one of the most seminal tweets in the history of the space. BTC Pay has grown to become the keystone FOSS (Free Open Source Software) that exemplifies, perhaps more than any project, the core ideological values of Bitcoin and the tweet. Interviewing Nicolas is @maxbitbuybit and @BitcoinQ_A

Bitcoin Clips is a young British Bitcoiner who only started making video based memes very recently. Only using a phone his cheap and cheerful style is proof that the quality of an idea and the impact it has are directly correlated. Here he chats to our great friend, solid Bitcoiner and talented podcaster @princey1976 from the Once Bitten podcast about the economic prospects of young people in the UK, how Bitcoin Clips went from aspiring Bitcoin miner to shitcoin delinquent to Maxi and the experience of trying to onboard his father, a banker with a large UK bank for nearly 40 years.

Our featured artist is Bitfandango! Her work is completely different to anything we’ve seen in the Bitcoin Art / Crypto Art world before.

Cryptocloaks have been producing incredible 3D printed Bitcoin warez for a little while now. Super cool design and combining two revolutionary and disrupting technologies, Bitcoin and 3D printing.  When we started the 21ism project Cryptocloaks were one of the first names on our shortlist. It turns out that not only do they make cool as shit stuff they are also a gang of solid cats. Normally they come as a three but on this occasion it was just Rick and SF chatting to our own @max_buybit There were a number of technical issues on this call but the chats and banter was brilliant so well worth a listen.

Our featured writer this month is one of our favourite Bitcoiners, Erik Cason - @erikcason Erik manages to combine seriously deep and cosmic ideas with an illustrious writing style that is as honest as it is beautiful and an impressive understanding of history. As much as we like his writing though, and boy do we love it, we enjoy his interviews even more. Personable, self-deprecatingly honest and insightful, you are always left with plenty to chew on and with wind in your proverbial sails. Interviewing Erik is our good friend John Vallis from the Rapid Fire Bitcoin podcast. In our optics, the best interviewer in the space and always a conduit for truly excellent conversations. This chat is no different and left us feeling high, if occasionally a little wet behind the eyes. Amazing stuff!

This month's music feature is the fantastic roots inspired band Jawbone. Jawbone are an amalgamation of the songwriting and musical talents of Paddy Milner and Marcus Bonfanti over a stellar rhythm section of bassist Rex Horan and drummer Evan Jenkins. Largely finding their inspiration in 60's roots music but have managed to weave together a musical tapestry of virtuous playing and good songwriting. As renowned session musicians they have played with artists such as Tom Jones, Eric Clapton, Van Morrison, Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker, Ronnie Wood, Ten Years After and many many more. In this interview with 21isms @HodlerThanThou they talk music, Covid and discuss both Paddy's Bitcoin journey and Marcus' historic scepticism of it. A great chat with two top chaps!
