The Guardian syndicates a weekly round-up of key articles from the NYT. Bitcoin made the edition this weekend.

It's actually quite fair for a liberal paper that has Krugman on staff. There's a great ending line from Gavin but I won't spoil it for you.

I think this analogy has legs.

The media brings giant waves of attention and speculation. When the water recedes, an enormous amount of destruction is left with newcomers hurting financially. The bitcoin community picks them up, shows them the ropes; before they know it they are back in profit and helping with the next wave of people.

Anyone see that movie The Impossible?

So how many more waves are we expecting?

I'd say 7/10 people (probably more) still don't know what bitcoin is.

This.  I'm a software engineer, work in a cube with three others.  They all know about Bitcoin now, but have only just become aware and truly interested recently. 

Beware the weak hands!
