Another slashdotting for the wrong reasons...  and that title was clearly written before the much larger loss from Bitcoinica was reported.
Please explain your statement about the wrong reasons? I made the submission so I would be interested in knowing what the problem is.

The submission was made before Bitcoinica revealed what happened to them, that's true. I've asked them to add an update to the submission regarding Bitcoinica.

Oh.. only that I don't recall any positive stories recently in slashdot regarding bitcoin.  I'm not saying it shouldn't be reported though!

Linode Exploit Caused Theft of Thousands of Bitcoins

2012-03-01

http://slashdot.org/story/12/03/02/0059202/linode-exploit-caused-theft-of-thousands-of-bitcoins

"Popular web hosting service Linode had a serious exploit earlier today. Apparently the super admin password for their server management panel was leaked and allowed a malicious attacker to target multiple Bitcoin-related servers. The biggest loss happened to a major Bitcoin mining pool that lost over 3000 BTC, which is currently worth almost 15 000 USD. Now the question is, will Linode compensate for lost bitcoins?"

I also try to recover my password, but I got no email.

There are a couple more things you could try to get closer to debugging the situation:

1) Check with your mail provider if there is any filtering which might prevent emails from mtgox arriving etc.
If not - ask mtgox support to send you a test email from the same system which sends out password reminders so you can test that you're getting email from them ok.


2) ask mtgox if you can supply them with transaction ids from your bitcoin wallet from when you deposited BTC to demonstrate your claim.

Perhaps a long shot - but something to try.

If they really do archive inactive accounts which have a balance, without a way to lookup via email address - that's not very good.   Put in a 'bug report' for them to fix that.. and wait??
1404  Economy / Speculation / Re: Rocket is secretly taking off yet again! on: March 02, 2012, 01:58:22 AM
The worry for traders is that there's now somebody with at least 13,000BTC who probably would prefer having USD.  And it's not really the 13,000 known stolen BTCs that's troubling.  It's that they've probably nabbed a lot more than that.

I don't have enough information to class that as 'probable'.  The services that were hit, had to have accessible coins for 'hot-wallet' purposes.  Any other large services would probably already have reported it, and private wealthy bitcoiners would surely have their wallets encrypted.
1405  Economy / Speculation / Re: Rocket is secretly taking off yet again! on: March 02, 2012, 01:47:39 AM
Ok, if you guys don't respond to this, then I don't know how else to get you to sell.   Cry

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=66961.0


Yeah.. the herd will probably move that way. Just like the TradeHill shutdown didn't involve any end-user losses, Linode's screwover of slush/faucet/bitcoinica/(who else?) doesn't look like it'll hit end users either... but the publicity is bad.

1406  Economy / Speculation / Re: Rocket is secretly taking off yet again! on: March 02, 2012, 01:25:26 AM
Ok.. confusing.
Is that image saying go short short short...
or do I need to look more closely at the crotches for the 'secret rocket'? 

I'm lost until I understand this important signal.

Where did CryptocoinMedia ever demand the full balance be transferred to him/herself?

well, i'm taking the strategy of heading out to other popular sites to post about Bitcoin.  signed into SBRforum.com (Sportsbooks), made some bullish statements and woke up today being banned forever from the site.  interesting...

I mentioned something about oil sands on Max Keiser Report page on facebook and got several childish rebuttals from "Max Keiser Report" and was subsequently banned from the page..

Join the club!

Who runs that page anyways.. if its actually Max Keiser, hes a bloody moron..

Well Max Keiser will ban you as a twitter follower for a single tweet with a polite message that is slightly contradictory to something he says - and that's definitely run by Max himself,
so I think he has a bit of a problem with dissent.

A rather glowing introductory article in ParisTech Review
(Paris Institute of Technology - "a research and higher education cluster of excellence, is composed of twelve French Grandes Ecoles (Engineering and Business Schools) that cover a sweeping spectrum in science, technology and management.
The high professor/students ratio, the wide range of scientific disciplines covered and the quality of research at ParisTech attract the best students and scientists.")

Bitcoin, a complementary currency Universal

The Web has revolutionized the sharing and knowledge production; bitcoin transforms the social consensus of money creation, paving the way for a new economic freedom.

The concluding paragraph is an interesting comparison to the W3C.
Perhaps the proposed 'Bitcoin Foundation' will evolve into something like that
(https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=49841.0)

Quote
By analogy, it is interesting to note that the governance of the World Wide Web is an organization governed by a non-profit - W3C - composed of 300 members among the largest companies in the high technology sector. Clearly, any support from government to a member of the W3C can be compensated by the other if it is not for the public interest. If this principle successfully managed to control an area where technology is new production methods and knowledge sharing, it is hoped that a similar organization may also supervise the technical protocol bitcoin. This would allow bitcoin to preserve its integrity and innovation potential to hazards of macroeconomic measures.

So many of the usual Good Wife fans and reviewers didn't seem all that enthused about the bitcoin subject,
but judging by the 3 articles I linked to sequentially here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1958.msg701747#msg701747
it might be that the show gave bitcoin a fair bit of exposure to various legal professionals.
That's a pretty good outcome in itself I reckon.

The point of this argument isn't particularly related to bitcoin - but like the previous 2 posts in this thread, shows that while the Good Wife bitcoin story might not have particularly appealed to most Good Wife fans - it seems to have put it on the radar of Law professionals.

Hearsay For Dummies: "The Good Wife" Episode "Bitcoin For Dummies" Badly Botches Hearsay Issue

I like "The Good Wife." I've written about it on this blog several times (see here, here, and here). I think that the show generally gets the law right more than most other legal shows. That certainly wasn't the case, though, with the show's most recent episode, "Bitcoin for Dummies," which contained the most egregious (non)application of the rule against hearsay that I've ever seen in a legal movie or TV show.

Bitcoins: Currency of the Future?

2012-01-19

http://lawandict.blogspot.com/2012/01/bitcoins-currency-of-future.html

At the end of the show, I was curious whether the concept of bitcoins was just a product of the minds of the writers or was based on reality.
After googling “what is bitcoin”, about seven million results came up.
