Concept ACK.

I love the idea. I think a good editorial policy on this would be that they need to be a public figure. I love the Bitcoin plebs, but this page would need infinite scroll for all the good Bitcoiner calls. We should confine this to exogenous entrance into Bitcoin (plus Satoshi).

I think it would be good to shorten "The Front Running Of The Bulls" to "The Front-Runners", to mirror "The Skeptics." We can also put a YouTube embed in the header for The Run of the Golden Bull.

The video looks dope on the page. Feel free to edit the data/front_runners.json set with better entries.

I actually like the idea of infinite scroll, plebs and gigachads sharing in the glory of understanding

Fair! The question is what constitutes a strong enough statement to earn a place on this? Notable people have it easier, because they can just say something bullish in the news, or make a large purchase. I'm not sure what the minimum criteria would be for plebs.

I'd also like to have it like the Skeptics where it captures the earliest bold statement from someone, not every single one (imagine having to scroll through that much Schiff and Roubini...).

The question is what constitutes a strong enough statement to earn a place on this?

With the few entries I had I was considering the novelty of the statement/action/circumstance at the time at was made as a heuristic for entries?

By this heuristic Hal Finney's price prediction of $10 Million per coin on January 2009 kinda sets the bar way high for most other price predictions and minimizes the number of price predictions that could become entries (unless they are culture quotables)?

Then there are other novel actions like the Bitcoin pizza day which was among the first events that helped facilitate price discovery. Could have some room for such events too?
