interesting.

did you see the poll directly below the video?

Quote
Do you think Internet access is a an essential human right for all citizens?

    * Yes, there should be as little restriction as possible to the flow of information.
    * No, if the Internet can be used for nefarious purposes or exploited, access should be removed.
    * Case by case, I think Internet access and connectivity should be determined based on the changing circumstances.

but it's fascinating that they should choose to conflate Rep. Weiner's weiner with Schumer's silk road crusade.

oh.  i meant inflate, of course...

Kevin Pollak seemed unimpressed :p, yet it was still fun seeing someone like him sitting down and listening to the idea.

Wow it was a VERY positive piece on bitcoin.  

Jeff explained why it wasn't untraceable or ideal for money laundering, and how effort was being made to register the exchanges as proper money transfer exchanges that would comply with anti-money laundering laws and know your client laws.

I really can't even do justice to how clearly and thoroughly he refuted many of the negative points that have been made in the media recently.  We need more interviews like this one.

He basically called people using silk road and donating bitcoins to LulzSec a bunch of stupid kids who don't understand how traceable all of their activity (including bitcoins) are to the proper authorities.

when is this video going to be up?  i can't see it

SealsWithClubs poker room has  over 400 players online. Buy in from .01 to 60btc.      BTCSportsMatch lets you bet sports with vig free lines!  Best kept secret in bitcoin....          LocalBitcoins.com is very user-friendly now for bank transfers.  You don't have to live close to trade when in the same currency area.           
Electrum client is awesome. Try it. And please stop sending bitcoins to sites run by security newbies, or don't complain when you lose everything.

Garzik stopped by to talk about how his currency is being used on Silk Road, the online black market for any drug imaginable, and how he is working with the government to turn Bitcoin into a universal online currency.

Garzik says that they have cooperated with authorities in conjunction with Silk Road and are currently working to distance themselves from the illegal site. Similarly the site is working to make their service entirely legal and in conjunction with government standards.

WTF, Jeff?

You're upset about this?  This is great for the future of bitcoin.  Being associated with illegal drug trade in the media is bad news, and it will be much much much worse if it gets associated with something like child pornography.

Getting the exchanges regulated and open ensures stability of exchange and increases confidence in the currency.

I'll repeat that Jeff did an incredible job with the interview and I hope he continues to do even bigger shows in the coming weeks.
