33GB of public domain JSTOR articles, and a manifesto (thepiratebay.org)

Currently the #1 article on Ycombinator.  Best part: the torrent uploader, Greg Maxwell, includes a bitcoin address in the Pirate Bay torrent description: 14csFEJHk3SYbkBmajyJ3ktpsd2TmwDEBb.  A worthy donation.

Dunno, can someone go and ask him what is exactly that Bitcoin thing and how does it fit?

It would be way better then.

Social payments system Dwolla surpasses $1mm per day in transactions

http://thenextweb.com/insider/2011/07/21/social-payments-system-dwolla-surpasses-1mm-per-day-in-transactions/

(mentions that "at least part of Dwolla’s explosive growth is being caused by the ease of compatibility between it and the Bitcoin currency system.")

VERY positive article here:

http://www.canada.com/Bitcoins+create+truly+democratic+policy+followers/5144669/story.html

Favorite excerpts:

Quote
``It's like the Mona Lisa.'' said Bruce Wagner, an IT consultant who discovered bitcoin in October and now hosts an online TV show about it. ``It's a masterpiece of technology.''

Quote
``If we remember, 15 years ago if you were doing anything on the Internet you were going to make millions,'' said Kenna. ``I think it could be the same with bitcoin.''

Another Canadian newspaper article (online).

Skeptics of financial system push Bitcoin as alternative online currency.

http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/arts-and-life/life/sci_tech/125900603.html

Not very accurate, and some negative tones.

That was a very good article. I really like how the author didn't go "ZOMG peeple kan buy drugz with bitcoin!" like alot of the earlier ones.

I'd like to invite you to use the wiki. I just wrote a template for this. This thread is nice but a some more condensed form might be better.

I integrated the template in Press Wiki Page for 3 sources to firstly showcase the difference it could make and secondly to improve on it.
Press will love to get a condensed view of other press articles so a good overview will help to get press again I guess.

I hope I can motivate others to join in this slight extra effort Smiley

(edited: integration in Press article)

I didn't see anyone mention this, in Time magazine 7-11-11

"Digital Deflation
How an online currency stacks up to the dollar

Since the financial crisis, many economists  have been calling for the creation of a new global reserve currency to replace the dollar.  To gauge how such a system might work, some have been tracking the progress of Bitcoin, a virtual currency, which makes it possible to buy and sell online anonymously.  Bitcoins were devised in 2009 by pseudonymous programmer Satoshi Nakamoto and have gained a following among techies.  For economists, the lure is that the tender is not run by a government or central bank.  No quantitative easing here.  The number of Bitcoins increases at a constant rate, much as legendary economist Milton Friedman prescribed for a stable currency.  But in mid-June, Bitcoin took a hit.  The virtual currency plunged in value after a hacker nearly stole $9 million of the digital money.  The exchange rate had reached $30 per Bitcoin, up from $5 earlier in the year.  After the hack, the value dove to a peny but has rebounded to $16.  The dollar, on the other hand, despite the tsunami in Japan, unrest in the Middle East and continued high unemployment has dropped just 5c vs. the euro this year.  So much for virtual-currency experiments and the quest to replace the greenback."


Yeah..  Time is a great one for black and white simplified thinking.

Why are they dumb?

An economist has dedicated his adult life to the study of money. Can you claim anywhere near his level of credibility?

One can dedicate ones life about a number of non-scientific pursuits. That makes them expert in only their own opinions.

(Decided to chime in since this thread has long since ceased to be about newsworthy press.)

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

Credibility is not needed when making an argument.  The argument stands or falls on its own merit. Credibility only comes into account in the absence of facts.

This is not a discussion thread.

If you do not have a "press hit" or other link to post, please post in another thread.  Thank you.
