Wasn't sure if this was "Press" worthy since I'm just linking another forum.

http://www.bitcointrading.com/forum/talk-bitcoin/bitcoin-makes-its-way-into-the-new-york-times-crossword-puzzle!/

I actually heard this from a friend on the bus before searching it down on another forum.

Shame on bitcointalk.org, haha. j/k Smiley

As much as I know about Bitcoin I would have never gotten that answer.

For the amount of spaces they had I would have guessed MONEY

Care to elaborate on the difference between "money" & "cash" because I think we all agree that bitcoin can be associated with the internet.

Is "cash" too close to a fiat term?  I guess I wouldn't call gold "money" so I'm not sure where bitcoin falls.

I guess I do not think of it as e-money, just as money. So e-cash is just as odd to me.

If you got a few of the words crossing it, then it would probably jump out at you. If you did put in MONEY, then it would be ovious that was wrong as soon as you tried to do any of the crossing words. You probably would not need to know much about bitcoins to get the crossword right. I wonder how many people wikipediaed "bitcoins" while or after doing this crossword puzzle?

Doesn't seem to be much of a spike...

but you could argue it's moving upward.
