Start making some donations to them in Bitcoins and you can bet they'll start caring.

The question is: How can you send Bitcoins to someone who doesn't have a Bitcoin address?

I guess that's something that's still missing for Bitcoin and that could really increase its popularity big time: A service that lets people send money to a Bitcoin address that they can later pick up. Seems like an extremely tricky thing to properly implement, though. YouTipIt has something like that for Facebook users: Escrow Tipits – Tip any Facebook user using Youtipit ... sound like a good way to get your Facebook friends to know and appreciate Bitcoin ;-)

Send money to a new bitcoin address. Send them an email with the wallet.dat of that address.

Bitcoin of course does away with the need for banks to create money (and maybe for banks in general)

"Commercial bank money" is created because someone lends their central bank money (deposits it) to the bank. People receive interest on their money because they let the bank use them. The need for this will not go away because of Bitcoins. "Commercial bank money" could just as well be created using deposits of Bitcoins instead of deposits of central bank money. - Forum, nyheter och information på svenska!
