1  Bitcoin / Press / 2013-06-23 Forbes - Bitcoin Foundation Receives Cease And Desist Order From Ca on: June 23, 2013, 03:28:33 PM

Directly following last month’s Bitcoin 2013 conference event in San Jose, CA that brought good revenue into the state, California’s Department of Financial Institutions decided to issue a cease and desist warning to conference organizer Bitcoin Foundation for allegedly engaging in the business of money transmission without a license or proper authorization.

... Then, they fight us ...
2  Bitcoin / Press / 2013-04-11 BFM-TV : Le bitcoin : La monnaie virtuelle qui devient réelle [FR] on: April 13, 2013, 08:45:01 AM!

A good introduction to bitcoin, on the biggest economic channel in France, by the biggest libertarian journalist of the network (still mainstream).
There was a second segment, interview of my favourite french "doomer" analyst, the same day available here

8  Bitcoin / Press / 2013-04-11 Bloomberg - The Bitcoin Debate: Economics vs. Virtual Reality on: April 11, 2013, 09:10:06 PM

Bloomberg's Sara Eisen and Economics Editor Michael McKee debate the intrinsic value of Bitcoin as the virtual currency has seen its value plunge due to increased interest. They speak on Bloomberg Television's "In The Loop."

Emphasis mine, good to see the main finance network is still on top of his game.
9  Bitcoin / Press / 2013-03-21 The Street - Cramer Picks Gold Coins Over ETFs on: April 11, 2013, 01:10:35 AM

Not a lot here. Just Jim Cramer talking about bitcoin's BS, and a tulip situation (at 1'08 for those who don't want to listen too much)
Good news in my book  Grin
10  Bitcoin / Press / 2013-04-10 Zerohedge - BitCrash Continues: Down 40% And Dumping on: April 10, 2013, 10:16:34 PM

Time to rename it BitCrash... or will it stage an amazing recovery? Alas, for this particular bubble, there are no NYSE circuit breakers nor is there a Federal Reserve-mandated "plunge protection team." And why should there be? The central banks hate all currency alternatives. Firehats: on, especially since the volume is still relatively lite.

11  Bitcoin / Press / 2013-04-05 Al Jazeera English - Inside Story : Cashing in on the Bitcoin boom on: April 05, 2013, 11:04:27 AM

So, is Bitcoin a realistic substitute for hard cash, or is it a bubble about to burst?

To discuss this, Inside Story, with presenter Fauziah Ibrahim, is joined by guests: Amir Taaki a principal at the British Bitcoin exchange, Intersango;  Pavan Duggal, a technology expert and cyber crimes specialist; and Hugo Rifkind, a columnist for the Times and the Spectator.

Amir. Again.
12  Bitcoin / Press / 2013-04-04 CNBC - Bitcoin Hacked: Price Stumbles After Buying Frenzy on: April 04, 2013, 10:32:49 AM
Online currency bitcoin had 20 percent knocked off its price overnight on Thursday as one of its major exchanges became the victim of a hacking attack leading to a sell-off in the virtual currency after reaching an all-time high.

Nice piece of FUD (amazing choice of title). Good to see that CNBC stays dumb.
13  Bitcoin / Press / 2013-03-24 New York Post - Coin of the Net realm on: March 24, 2013, 04:40:15 PM
14  Bitcoin / Press / 2013-03-23 Reuters - Bullish on Bitcoins ? (video) on: March 23, 2013, 12:36:58 PM

Some mistakes, but good video overall.

Kinda off topic : quite funny to see all the coverage in the last month. Financial press people are really only looking at their ticker, not studying the fundamentals. They don't get that bitcoin was already great in 2009 Smiley
15  Bitcoin / Press / 2013-03-22 The Guardian - Silk Road: the online drug marketplace that officials on: March 22, 2013, 06:58:57 PM

Silk Road: the online drug marketplace that officials seem powerless to stop

Authorities around the world know about the website, but closing it is another matter – partly because it uses Bitcoins

Front page of their website Smiley

And actually a good article. Gov can't do shit, you can buy quality, you are more secure.
Includes the video with Amir Taaki
16  Bitcoin / Press / 2013-03-22 The Guardian - Bitcoin: The fastest growing currency in the world on: March 22, 2013, 04:40:40 PM
17  Bitcoin / Press / 2013-03-21 Wall Street Journal - Web Money Gets Laundering Rule on: March 21, 2013, 11:54:45 PM

One of the fastest-growing alternative cash products is Bitcoin, an online currency launched in 2009 that isn't backed by a central bank or controlled by a central administrator. Currency units, known as "bitcoins" and consisting of a series of numbers, are created automatically on a set schedule and traded anonymously between digital addresses or "wallets." Certain exchange firms buy or sell bitcoins for legal tender at a rate that fluctuates with the market.

Seems like a good piece, informative, documented, balanced.
18  Bitcoin / Press / 2013-03-21 Bloomberg - Sorry, Bitcoin Isn’t a ‘Currency’ on: March 21, 2013, 10:36:59 PM

Did you miss the plain old fud ?  Here we go :

Businessweek‘s Bernhard Warner reports on the surge in Bitcoin interest as Europeans wonder if their money is safe in the wake of the Cyprus deposit tax fiasco.
One place where it’s not safe is in Bitcoin.

It might get fun  Grin

'Bitcoin Tipper' performs a similar function to the Reddit bot but applies it to Twitter
With this awesome new service, Twitter has suddenly become a global banking system with 540 million accounts. The best part about this is the ability to tip famous people with Bitcoins; I bet that will make things interesting quickly. To inaugurate this service (no pun intended), my first tip will be going to Barack Obama.
