I clicked a link to read a bitcoin related article and I was blocked by a paywall. I thought it was funny that someone wrote an article about bitcoin without realising they could be paid in bitcoin!

Pretty good for someone standing at a distance looking in, but I noticed his understanding of how the system handles a double-spend is incorrect.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

Perhaps I did more than  email. Perhaps I setup a mybitcoin account for them and depsosited some coins and gave them the login....

They are very sympathetic to the goals of this project.  Wink

BTW, somebody of us should go there and answer questions/resolve issues asked in the comments below the article.
LWN.NET may be read by some important figures in the geek world, so it would be probably good for Bitcoin PR if we do that.

Perhaps it should be even Satoshi himself or Gavin Andresen, because they have the best understanding of the Bitcoin algorithms.

Isn't the time that they spend on Bitcoin itself so valuable that they are the last people who should take on the job of roving ambassador correcting the world's misconceptions?

I think that there are very few people on this forum except Satoshi and Gavin, who have the qualifications.

And if his avatar photo is accurate, Gavin is pretty enough for television, whereas most of us likely have a face for radio.

I completely disagree.

It will never be good for bitcoin PR, if the creators never show anywhere. The truth is nobody can catch the concept & explain the idea better than the creator...

I'll beg to differ.
Often, people who aren't aware of all the technical internals are able to explain things in simpler ways.

There's a reason why engineering and sales are different jobs Cheesy
