Just curious.  I found out through the Economic Policy Journal Podcast.  I was surprised it took me so long to find out about Bitcoin since I have been very involved in economics & computer science for quite some time.

Would love to hear how you found out about Bitcoin.

My first real bitcoin disclosure was from episode 287 of Security Now in February 2011.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQPSwA2Itbs

I don't watch the show regularly, I just happened across it.  Within hours I was mining with my Core 2 Duo CPU & a Radeon 4870.

10 weeks later, I was running a 4 g/hash mining farm.  Smiley

Well, I'm really into "security" news etc.
I've read articles about some hacks where vast amounts of Bitcoins have been stolen, until then I did not really know what Bitcoin is,
so I started to dig deeper and deeper...

And here I am.

I saw a TV show on it on ABC, and it kind of piqued my interest.
Gotta go fast!

I've actually known about its existence for a year or so, but I only recently downloaded the client and started researching it.

Read about it in a magazine, though I don't recall which.  I work in cryptography, have a background in law, lean slightly libertarian and consider economics fascinating.  Perfect fit.
