101 Reasons: Liberty Lives in New Hampshire (Full Length Film) :
(See Ernest Hancock's input in the film below at 32:50 min)
"101 Reasons: Liberty Lives in New Hampshire" is a documentary adaptation of the Free State Project's list of 101 Reasons to Move to New Hampshire, which was written in 2002 by Michele Dumas.
The FSP is an effort to move 20,000 liberty-minded people to a low populated state that has an existing pro-freedom culture. In 2003, participants of the FSP voted for the "Live Free or Die" state, New Hampshire, as its destination.
For over 12 years the 101 Reasons list has helped inspire thousands of activists and entrepreneurs to sign up for the FSP and continue New Hampshire's reputation as a beacon for liberty.

(Ernest Hancock warned of this very concern...
Fifty of the world's most prominent Bitcoin chieftains are set to gather in secret at an undisclosed Caribbean resort in a roundtable gathering that some are already comparing to The Bilderberg Group meetings.
Coindesk has the story, noting that the gathering, dubbed the Satoshi Roundtable, will take place this weekend and is a closed door confab for "bitcoin CEOs and luminaries". Members of the Press and the public will not be invited.
"Organized by Bruce Fenton of the Bitcoin Association and Atlantic Financial, participants in the first annual Satoshi Roundtable include top executives from companies such as Blockchain, BitGo, BitPesa, Chain, ChangeTip, Coinapult and MegaBigPower, as well as noted VCs in the space such as Erik Voorhees and Roger Ver." the report reads.
An official website for the gathering verifies the secrecy of the meeting, noting "Even if you are a great person with many accomplishments in bitcoin and lots of passion we just won't likely be able to invite you."

Recently I traveled to Tampa, Florida to meet with senior officers of the U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) in a secure location near their headquarters at MacDill Air Force Base.
USSOCOM includes the Navy SEALS, DELTA Force, Green Berets, and other highly trained and specialized units operating under joint military command to carry out the most difficult combat and intelligence missions. They conduct these missions both alone, and in conjunction with CIA paramilitary units depending on the theatre of operations.
The particular unit of USSOCOM that sponsored our meeting was "J36," the Transnational Threats Division. J36 is commanded by U.S. Army Lt. Col. Joshua J. Potter, and is assigned the task of detecting, disrupting and defeating threat networks that transcend geographic and regional boundaries. Such networks are both criminal and terrorist in nature, and may be involved in narco-terrorism and terrorist finance among other activities.
Pretty soon, all of your things will have Internet: your car, your refrigerator, perhaps even your desk. That proposition is getting even easier with a pair of announcements from the Raspberry Pi Foundation and Microsoft that encourage the maker community to invest even more in building clever devices using minicomputers.
The Raspberry Pi is a credit card-sized computer that makers can use to create smart devices for tasks such as home automation, gaming, or music. The newest version is a sizable improvement over its popular earlier version. It swaps out the single-core 700 MHz ARM processor for a more capable quad-core 900 MHz processor using the new ARMv7 instruction set. In layman's terms, that means much better performance, as multiple cores can operate separate tasks in parallel—and, in this case, at a faster speed. The new Raspberry Pi 2 also sports 1GB of RAM, doubling the previous version's 512MB. And as any computer user will tell you, you can never have too much memory. All of that comes at the same exact price as the original Raspberry Pi: $35.
Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (from Wikipedia)
The Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) is a law of the United States that requires all travelers to show a valid passport or other approved secure document when traveling to the U.S. from areas within the Western Hemisphere. The purpose, according to the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Department of Homeland Security, is to strengthen border security and facilitate entry into the United States for both legitimate U.S. citizens and foreign visitors. The initiative is an outcome of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act. The Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative was also implemented to prevent false documents.
Since January 23, 2007, all persons (including U.S. citizens) traveling by air to the United States from all foreign countries (including Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean, and Bermuda) have been required to present a valid passport, NEXUS card, or U.S. Coast Guard/Merchant Mariner Document.
On January 31, 2008, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers stopped taking verbal declarations of citizenship from U.S., Canadian, or Bermudian travelers as proof of citizenship at sea and land ports of entry.
On March 27, 2008, the departments of Homeland Security and State announced in a final rule that "full implementation" of the land and sea provisions of WHTI would begin June 1, 2009; on that date, the following types of documents will become the only acceptable documents for border crossings for most travelers:
U.S. citizens and nationals: valid U.S. passport, passport card, state enhanced driver's license (available in Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Vermont and Washington) approved by the Secretary of Homeland Security, or trusted traveler program card (NEXUS, FAST, or SENTRI); a valid Merchant Mariner Document when traveling in conjunction with official maritime business; or a valid U.S. military identification card when traveling on official orders. The final rule also outlines ongoing efforts to provide other alternative documents.
U.S. lawful permanent residents: Lawful Permanent Resident Card (Form I-551).
Canadian citizens: A valid Canadian passport, provincial enhanced driver's license (available in Manitoba, Quebec, British Columbia, and Ontario) or a valid trusted traveler program card (FAST or NEXUS).
Bermudian permanent residents: A British Overseas Territories passport with valid Bermudian belonger status.
Mexican nationals: A valid Mexican passport and a visa or a valid Form DSP-150, B-1/B-2 laser visa (also called a Border Crossing Card, or BCC); a valid SENTRI card may be used for access to expedited border crossing lanes.
