Coin of the cyber realm
How the geek set hopes to create a new world currency, one that relies on a network of users, not on a central banker

http://www.vancouversun.com/Cyber+Coin+Internet+currency/5125735/story.html

This is just a syndication of the previous Ottawa Citizen article.. I don't know that it's worth posting such syndicated items here in general, except to give an idea of how much exposure bitcoin is getting. Presumably the vancouver sun is 'notable' even if it's not the source.

World's Leading Bitcoin Exchange, Mt.Gox, Acquires MtGoxLive.com

http://www.prweb.com/releases/2011/7/prweb8656007.htm

" ...in addition to raising the accepted standards for security within the industry, Tibanne Co. Ltd. is continually working toward building the best possible services for its clients."

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Because site hangs and mysql errors are "the best possible services"

I have a love-hate with MtGox.  They have all the volume.  They have a few nice features that I wish Trade Hill would incorporate.  But the back-end to MtGox SUCKS.  I am a software engineer who does back end architecture.  I know they SUCK.

Only one mention of Bitcoins..     chalk this one up as slightly bad press by association I guess.

Skeptics of financial system push Bitcoin as alternative online currency

Leads with old news of the 'stunning crash'  and is overall quite negative on bitcoin.

Yup. That is me.

I make almost no money from doing that, but I really like TradeHill and it is fun to help them out.

I think it is good to have a link to someplace you can actually buy bitcoins for the person just finding out about them in a news article, so I don't feel that it is completely out of place.

As an out of the blue post .. it makes the whole thing seem like a cheap marketing scheme, or worse - feeds the ponzi/pyramid arguments (stupid as that may be).

Just my opinion.. but I reckon it doesn't help. 
As an answer to someone asking where to buy.. it'd be fine.

(An interesting graphic on bitcoin and tax)

A few details in there are completely wrong or just plain confused, but overall it isn't too bad. This will bring in some people. The biggest problem with it (for some people) is that it seems to imply that simply using bitcoins makes transactions tax-free. This may or may not be the case, depending on the government and the transaction. (And of course, some people don't give a rat's ass what some criminal gang thinks about whether you might owe them money or not.)

Thanks. This was extremely awkward situation for me. I've done a bunch of interviews already but this was quite weird :p

It was extremely hot, uncomfortable stool and the microphone voice was very loud "hey could you turn down that microph-" "AND WE'RE ON IN 3! 2! 1! WELCOME TO ..."

OK, but that's dealable, but the awkward part was having no visual feedback. I was basically doing a telephone interview where everybody could see me. Check out this email exchange:

k, no worries. Was a helpful hint. Might be worth setting up.

Anyway I'm pleased it turned out fine in the end though. Our group is making great progress on our bitcoin projects. We just tonight released a bitcoin rewrite http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=30646.0 and new exchange software is coming soon too also Smiley

If Max having to reword every single thing you said about bitcoin because it was confusing and disconnected is fine then.. yeah. Honestly, you should have declined this interview or suggested someone else better suited for interviews within your bitcoin circle. I'm not saying this because I think badly of you in any way on personal level because I do not know you, but you were a sharp contrast to people that show up on the show normally who speak on interviews on a show I watch everyday. You had tough time giving clear and concise answers to questions you were asked and you were all over different random, unrelated, and even negative topics. I understand that it is something new and unfamiliar for you and I do highly commend you for taking your time to help promote bitcoin without a doubt. I appreciate all of your efforts, but I definitely felt without a doubt that the job was best if left for someone else with more talent in speaking and it was a good opportunity lost to on gathering interest from a very good target demographics.

I actually refuse signing up to TradeHill since I do not support referral schemes for exactly this reason, and I think anyone dealing with anything that might get published should remove referral tags completely.

It just looks bad.
