Sorry for shameless plugging. I made a visit to Mt. Gox and got an interview with CEO Mark Karpeles and communications manager Gonzague Gay-Bouchery, and I thought some may be interested in reading it.

Cheers.

I was a bit surprised at how unassuming the offices were, and how friendly Gonzague and Mark were. You hear and read so much about Mt. Gox, so at least for me it was easy to conjure up an image of a company with super fancy location (kind of like some banks) and arrogant people only out to suck money out of their clients (again, kind of like some banks, LOL) but it was nothing like that. They are just regular dudes with an interest in bitcoin that they have been able to capitalize on. While I for various reasons personally hope that trading will spread out more across exchanges and the OTC market, I dont really see a problem with Mt. Gox having such a large share as long as they do a decent job of it. It seems like they spend a lot of time and resources on being proactive with and working with governments and banks etc that could have been spent at improving and protecting their platform instead, but such is just reality. (at present anyway- maybe governments and banks will become easier and quicker to deal with in the future, but I highly doubt that)

I wasn't aware of anything like that until you told me. What's happened?

Damn..

Wish I would have been there.  Too bad he would have told me it violates his privacy policy when asking about where my money is.
