That is rather stretching the definition of press.

This is actually a very good article raising issues that counter many arguments raised in regards to the regression theorem.

This was use value of the system, not of a bitcoin (or if you prefer an unspent output).

But it is not press and has no significance. Half of the values he mention are not about the bitcoin system itself - but rather about other cryptographic systems (one potential system and namecoins) - that is misleading - because the value of namecoins does not really add any value to bitcoins.

Yes, but it is on topic and the author is a supporter of Bitcoin since he accepts donations in BTC.

There may still be hope for the 1st decentralized cryptocurrency which is Bitcoin. How to approach different subjects is key to progress.

I met the author personally last week in Paris, cool guy, has lots of ideas.
Regardless of whether this qualifies as press or not it's always good to share and encourage people that write about crypto-currencies in general and Bitcoin in particular.

I do not cruise the blogosphere for mentions of Bitcoin. But I do use an online magazine, which does. Inasmuch as they present this blog article side by side with other press items, I would suggest it qualifies as "press".

The discussion about article on HN was a much better read:
