No, just the past two articles. Mark Ward has started writing articles with a focus on Bitcoin, and there's a good chance he'll write more on us in the future. So it looks like Forbes/Matonis's monopoly on mainstream media covering Bitcoin may finally be broken - which is good, the more outlets start writing about us regularly the faster we'll become cemented in the public consciousness before anyone knows it.

Argumentum ad lunam: the fallacy that because Bitcoin's price is rising really fast the currency must be a speculative bubble and/or Ponzi scheme.

2012-07-12 is July 12, 2012.

perhaps what is meant is 2012-12-07?

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper or hardware wallets instead.

For better sorting, all press releases should always be formated Year-month-day.

So you can simply sort them by subject.

Also cool that this has made it on BBC already.

All previous versions of currency will no longer be supported as of this update

Year-Day-Month format.

Extremely unusual. This is standardized in ISO-8601. Nobody in his right mind would use YYYY-DD-MM, because it looks like an ISO-8601 date. It is always YYYY-MM-DD. But of course the world is a madhouse, and there are always some idiots around.

Typically you can hit the "report to moderator" link, and I will fix any broken subject lines to follow YYYY-MM-DD format.
