My guess is that if this happened, bitcoin would be all over the mainstream media, because then everybody would have to take it seriously. With 6M bitcoins you would need a price of 83, and with 7M you would need a price of 71,5 to create a 500M economy.

Make sure you back up your wallet regularly! With Bitcoin-Qt, it needs to be backed up at least as often as every 100 transactions (both sends and receipts) or new addresses.

500 million is not a round enough number. Let it be 1 Billion dollars of market cap, then it will be a good piece of news.

First it will reach 100$/btc, that would generate some news and then when it hits the 150$/btc news will tell that bitcoin's worth 1 billion dollars.

When it hits $250M, I suggest we make moves to start the backup net. Or buy a few companies that lay down internet tubes.

Something. Get bitcoin some way to weather software and hardware issues. We will face opposition. No doubt about it.

A fundamental issue is that in the crowd that has 100k+ bitcoins, they don't seem to be making serious moves to help encourage and stabilize the economy as far as I can tell.

At some point, they will need to, since they won't be able to get rid of their $25-$50M quickly, and won't want to. Until then, though, we are still waiting and seeing what sort of people our new BTC overlords are.

I have an idea to solve that. I'll explain it in 2-3 weeks.
