Just a  relatively obscure blog (+ video)  - but I think it makes an interesting point about the business community's current (mis)perception of Bitcoin.

Only one: BitcoinPorn
I can stomach the occasional noob, troll or teenager, but at 1600+ posts this one is simply depressing to read. I weep for humanity.

Agreed!

Almost agree. I've come so close.
There can hardly be anyone who writes so much in proportion to what little he appears to read Tongue

For a while there I was tempted to ignore Phinnaeus Gage. Whenever I saw his name on an updated thread a little voice in my head would say 'Phinnaeus'!! in the same tone of voice Seinfeld would say 'Newman'!!
He seems like a decent enough bloke and has some good stuff to say - but 99% of the time it seemed it was just yet another image he'd dragged up with some tangential connection to whatever was going on.   A strange mixture of entertainment and distracting bombardment.

Anyway.. nobody is on my ignore list. I somehow suffer it all. Wink

Local communities don't have bitcoins - it's all stashed away by the intrepid Smeagols hopping to strike it big.

It's well known that groups behave differently to individuals. I think a local user group of intrepid Smeagols could be a great way to get some specific merchants into bitcoin.
The problem at the moment is that in any one city - bitcoin users are sparse.  If they come together for meetings every month, they could easily provide enough of an incentive for a computer shop and/or pizza joint to get involved. 
It's that sort of thing that could snowball.

It seems the story in the new yorker is enough to convince some of the Irish.

I agree.. and I think we need to encourage local bitcoin user-groups more.  (It seems local linux geek groups form all over the place - why not bitcoin?)
Aside from a venue for bitcoiners to face to face trade bitcoin to/from local currency - they could select a pizza(or whatever) joint or two  that a few of them will buy from - and offer to set up bitcoin merchant facilities without labour charge.. just to help kickstart things.

Popular Moscow based news website lenta.ru reports that rusleaks.org is closed and asking for money via bitcoin.

rusleaks.org is apparently somewhat similar to wikileaks in nature, and is hosted outside of Russia.
Apparently the Russian Federal telecommunications department (RSKOMNADZOR) is trying to shut it down.

It's not clear to me the exact nature of what the material rusleaks is/was leaking. Perhaps some russian speaking bitcoiners can clarify.

OP is trolling

sorry for the one liner but it had to be said.

If it was worth saying, then it was worth saying with evidence.
As a one liner it's useless even as a hint to investigate more.  
A glance over mizerydearia's previous posts doesn't clarify.

What is the assumed knowledge I am missing that makes this one liner worth taking seriously?

The Crypto-Currency
Bitcoin and its mysterious inventor.

Joshua Davis
OCTOBER 10, 2011 (print edition date)  -  2011-10-02 ? (web abstract only)

http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2011/10/10/111010fa_fact_davis

The article gets a positive mention in nypost:
Quote
This week’s New Yorker offers at least two signals that our nation is indeed gurgling down the drain: 1) The government of North Carolina has essentially been bought by a fat-cat millionaire named Art Pope, and 2) this supposedly stuffy and sophisticated magazine has devoted no less than 10 pages to a profile of 21-year-old country songstress Taylor Swift, not including the gauzy full-page portrait. On the positive side, a piece on the very mysterious creator of the Internet currency bitcoin is more intriguing than it first appears.

how or what would I use to send funds to the seller during checkout ?

Once you've bought Bitcoins on the TradeHill exchange - you *could* use their "Withdraw Funds" link to send directly from TradeHill to the merchant's checkout.
(Withdrawal method BTC)
If you do this - you're effectively using TradeHill as your 'wallet'.

It looks like TradeHill has an estimated time of 'up to 12 hours' for Bitcoin withdrawals... so I don't know how practical it is to use TradeHill as a wallet, because perhaps some merchant systems may time out.

Personally I think MtGox is better.. but you'll get plenty of dissenting opinions around here on which exchange to use I guess.


So - you might also consider downloading the bitcoin client from bitcoin.org, and withdrawing your coins to the wallet on your computer.   This has a separate set of security concerns - but ultimately it's probably the best way to be in control of your own bitcoins.
1859  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Betabeat drops bitcoin section on: September 30, 2011, 05:54:29 AM
It looks like betabeat (http://www.betabeat.com/)  has removed the bitcoin icon and link on their frontpage to bitcoin stories.

Also recently - the jupiterbroadcasting guys who do the TechSNAP videos mentioned they may drop their 'Bitcoin Blaster' section of the show if there wasn't much happening.

I guess bitcoin is getting a bit boring for some in the tech media. 
Ah well - with the run of mostly bad press bitcoin has had in the past few months, maybe 'boring' is a good thing and we can enjoy some relative price stability!

Should Bitcoins Become Illegal Digital Currency?

Attorney Mike Young's Internet Lawyer Blog
2011-09-29

http://mikeyounglaw.com/internet-lawyer/bitcoin-digital-currency/


"Bitcoin digital currency differs from traditional currencies and has become an increasingly prominent method of payment in the world of internet commerce."

"Though no legislative efforts have yet been undertaken to restrict or ban the usage of Bitcoin digital currency, the United States will perhaps soon see efforts made to stop illegal drug trafficking through placing impediments on the usage of Bitcoin digital currency."
