I'll be getting interviewed tomorrow for a feature about EBT on ClipX, a show that airs on the MDR's JUMP Radio.

Info in German about the program: http://www.jumpradio.de/static/programm ... lipx.shtml

Looks like the clip just aired on the radio (I'm at work, so I haven't heard it). EBT is featured on the ClipX site right now and we're having new users signing up. :D
Welcome and happy tracking to all of them!

A relatively small article was published in a magazine which is distributed door to door in Malta, leading to 8 new users in the last 3 days. I will post link as soon as it is available online.

And so far 11 new Maltese members, a true avalanche! This is as succesful as 440* new Dutch members in 4 days! :D

*Malta has about 400.000 inhabitants, the Netherlands have about 16.000.000, which is 40 times as many inhabitants. Therefore 11 new Maltese members is equally succesful als 440 new Dutch members

Did anything happen in Italy with footage shot during the summer meeting? Was it broadcast somewhere, and if so, can we see it online?

Radio FFH which broadcasts in the state of Hessen has launched a game until the end of the month: "Zehnerjagd" (chase for :note-10: ) Every morning they announce a serial number of a :note-10: The lucky devil who has that bill has one day to inform them about it. He will get 100.000 then. :D

On their front page of http://www.ffh.de" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; they ask listeners for tipps and tricks how to get more bills / :note-10: by sending an e-mail. Of course we Hessians have already made use of it...

Tricky: One user had entered the serial number at EBT and it had exposed to be false. Intensive communication with Radio FFH has followed. But well, any promotion is good promotion, and maybe it will raise their interest...
Let's wait, hope and see.

Effect is small but new members from the last two weeks show that this programme does have an effect. Funny, most of these new entrants did register :note-10: only. :D

Well it may be a bit late but I searched the web for EBT mentionning articles that are not linked at this page. In most cases it is a 'bit' late, however remarkable in some cases:

Yeah - we've been cited in Science!
http://www.psyonline.com.br/portal/admi ... ns/425.pdf" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Most stuff is about techno social networks and the US, but the whole link is mentionned:
Science wrote: However, in pioneering work, Brockmann et al.
(4) showed that popular Web sites for currency
tracking (such as http://en.eurobilltracker.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
and http://www.wheresgeorge.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;) collect a massive
number of records onmoney dispersal that can be
used as a proxy for human mobility. This work
opened the path to the general exploitation of
proxy data for human interaction and mobility
(10).
And this seems to be the chinese version:

'En plus', a worker of this institute:
Laboratoire d’Informatique, de Robotique et de Micro´electronique de Montpellier.
at least planned to estimate the total number of Euro Bills in circulation with his algorithm (french)
http://www.lirmm.fr/~gambette/2009Gambe ... llotes.pdf" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

An article on 'a political geography of euro coinage'
http://www.helsinki.fi/geography/raento ... G_2004.pdf" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
(EBT is mentionned within the Conclusion - however, the article just cites EBT as a source for the first Italian coins being seen in Helsinki at January 1 2002.)
