The body of the article doesn't really refer to Bitcoin - but it's mentioned down in the 'How It Works' summary.

* Two US senators have urged the United States Attorney-General to crack down on Silk Road and the digital currency that enables purchases on it, Bitcoins.
* Goods on Silk Road can only be bought using Bitcoin, an independent online currency.
* The peer-to-peer currency, which works via a piece of open-source software, aids anonymity on Silk Road because it is not linked to any institution.
* Bitcoin developer Jeff Garzik has previously said that because the currency log is public, it's possible that buyers could be tracked. "Attempting major illicit transactions with Bitcoin, given existing statistical analysis techniques deployed in the field by law enforcement, is pretty damned dumb," he told Gawker.com.

I think you're close to the mark.. but perhaps it's more that most venture capitalists (and people who are already wealthy in general) are skeptical of it and the "internet industry" is echoing that.
I suspect also that much negative bitcoin sentiment is driven by how journalists report on it, and most journalists are much more geared towards looking at the past than looking forward.

$113K to $8!? is this for real right now?

Looks like everyone willing to sell already sold, and someone wants to buy big

Meh.. a big seller will wake up soon enough and take some delicious profit.
I'm hopeful (but not confident) it'll hold above 7 though.

One of these examples of digital money is Bitcoin that emerged in 2009 as an alternative to conventional currency, as money parallel. It is a decentralized system of electronic money, digital money system encryption (cryptocurrency) with a P2P structure that tries to impose as payment and money parallel. Bitcoin works in many countries and you can buy almost any product or service, provided the other party accepts Bitcoin.

Episode 117 - A Bit About BitCoin

Steve Patterson / Brian Nugent
2012-07-02

http://twobeerswithsteve.libsyn.com/webpage/episode-117-a-bit-about-bit-coin

A while has passed since our last podcast but after a long break I'm back with a podcast about Bit Coin.

Bit Coin is a digital currency that is not affiliated with any person, country, or nation. It is an independently operating currency that is very much still in it's infancy after almost four years of being circulated. But in this interview Brian Nugent explains that Bit Coin is not just some passing fancy, it is actually an emergent technology that has the momentum to upend the current monetary system... or to out it more bluntly, the current monetary regime.

This interview is an eye-opening look into what could very well be the future of money. Please don't miss this informative podcast.
...



The 'Two Beers With Steve' podcast has been running a few years (since about early 2009) and is available on iTunes.

The 'Two Beers With Steve' Podcast is an informal discussion of current trends in the economy, the scarcity of energy, and the depletion of the environment and the need to begin preparations for a vastly different future in the upcoming years. The idea of the podcast began in the internet forums of the ChrisMartenson.com website. The members of the site began discussing the issues brought forth in the 'Crash Course' video series on the ChrisMartenson.com website. About every other episode we invite a guest to help educate ourselves on areas of our interest we perceive as vital in the years ahead.

Virtual World Needs Laissez-faire Economists

http://www.forbes.com/sites/jonmatonis/2012/07/06/virtual-world-needs-laissez-faire-economists/2/

not really a direct bitcoin press hit.. but matonis references bitcoin obliquely by talking of 'cryptocurrencies' and links to some bitcoin articles, and the topic should be of interest to bitcoiners.

This is also presumably why CommBank is calling Kaching-to-Kaching payments "peer-to-peer" when they're nothing of the sort.

These payments still involve a central entity, the bank, just like any other bank transfer. True peer-to-peer transactions would see the funds go directly from payer to payee without involving anyone else.

Offline that's done with cash. Online that's only possible with emerging systems such as BitCoin or perhaps Canada's MintChip digital cash.

Yeah it should have the option to turn the card off or at least the tracking off.  Yes simple cover sleeve to act as a Faraday cage would also be a good idea to protect the card.

Is a sleeve like that possible? I thought cages had to be grounded to be effective?

Nope, but that's a very common misconception.

IAMAED (I am an electronics designer)

Nope a sleeve like that is not possible...?

Nope cages don't have to be grounded to be effective?

You shouldn't really think of it as 'the stock exchange' - even though one particular company presently has the lion's share of trade.

So to answer your question, yes - you're completely free to buy and sell coins with any of the various Bitcoin exchanges.
Your choice will probably depend on what country you're in and what methods of transferring money in and out is most practical for you.

I believe this forum happens to be hosted by the team who runs MtGox - but isn't really connected.
(users are completely separate for example, and it's most likely on completely different machines)

I saw that too, but decided not to mention it here, because the article is not about bitcoin, just about a bunch of kids that want to start a business. Bitcoin is only mentioned with one word and thats it.
I would delete the thread from this forum if it was my decision.

I think singular mentions in mainstream publications are still noteworthy as it gives an idea of how Bitcoin is perceived.
It's interesting to note whether the word bitcoin is mentioned in an 'off the cuff' manner, or as a more extraordinary item requiring explanation.

That aside, it's interesting in itself that a group of school-goers is setting up a trading system for Bitcoin apparently without raising negative commentary - and also that 'venture capitalists drop by' to their meetings.

I ignore plenty of Bitcoin blogs etc which appear to be from within the community, and even some external mentions that are just boring repeats of security-related stuff - but I'd prefer items like this one to be noted here, and I hope some others who frequent this thread  agree.
