Curious, confused about Bitcoin? You’re not alone. Free workshop may help

You were not alone if you read the Saturday SR story about Bitcoin and wasn't sure how it all works and what's the big deal.

For you, here we go. A free workshop on Thursday at the Spokane Valley Library, at 12004 E. Main Ave. Presenters will be Zach Doty and Doug Slaton, two local business guys who both accept the new virtual currency at their stores.

Doty operates Integrity CompuTech, a PC services and consulting firm in Rathdrum. Slaton runs Spokane Computer Commando, in the Valley.

The two will give a helpful layman's introduction to Bitcoin, so that any ordinary person can figure out what it does and doesn't do.

Both guys are well-versed in Bitcoin, which is a form of payment increasingly popular on the Web.
