I've just recently got into Bitcoins and I am very intrigued to say the least. I called up an old friend from college (he writes for the Economist) to see if he had heard about Bitcoins and I was surprised to hear that he and a few of his colleagues have already been researching about Bitcoins for a story. He said they were going pretty in-depth into how the currency works (the proof-of-work distributed computing, Satoshi Nakamoto's paper, etc) as well as the case for an anonymous currency. But the real juicy bit is this: it's going into the print edition! No idea if it will be on the front page but he did say it was feature length so it is highly probable that it could be. I'm aware of his current deadline, but to prevent the Bitcoin market from getting even more sporadic than it is I won't be publicly revealing the edition it is being published in.

If you guys want to throw me some BTC for the tip, my address is in the signature.

Cheers

I thought it would have been obvious, but no I'm not ACTUALLY Steve Jobs. It's just my forum name.  Cheesy

There was a well researched story on the Babbage blog here:

 http://www.economist.com/blogs/babbage/2011/06/virtual-currency

I'm glad this is going to print too, it's a good article even if I don't risky age with their conclusions.

Here's an article from The Economist that's listed as being "from the print edition":
http://www.economist.com/node/18836780

Obviously it's not the "feature length" article that your friend was referring to.

Well it's great to see that Bitcoins are getting more and more mainstream coverage, people need to become aware of this great, worldwide alternative to actual currency.
