There was an article on Bitcoin in c't, a bi-weekly German computer magazine (sold curculation about 350K) today. At 6 A4 pages it was a rather in-depth article, and I did not notice any factual errors.

wow, awesome! This'll hit a lot of techies in germany. C't is quite respectable and well-read.

So the bitomat incident is finally getting noticed..  I wonder how long before the mybitcoin fiasco hits the media.

I find it interesting that they post the actual bitcoin donation addresses directly in this article. Is it normal for a mainstream media outlet to publish instructions on how to donate to someone who's been arrested.. or is it that the journalist wanted to emphasize the bitcoin association?
I can't imagine them publishing the bank account details of where to donate to someone's legal fund..   Would they normally even publish a donation URL?

This piece is by some idiot who thinks entries in the mtgox database constitute 'counterfeit' bitcoins.


Virtual Currency - The Dark Side
Brendan Burge
http://www.atmmarketplace.com/blog/6030/Virtual-Currency-The-Dark-Side


Quote
One of the most compelling reasons for supporting virtual currency is that it would appear to be impossible to counterfeit. Alas, this is not the case. In a recent news story it was revealed that BitCoin had indeed been "counterfeited," and the resulting drop in the value of the currency was extreme and immediate.

Remarkably upbeat given that they lost all their experimental coins in mybitcoin... although the article did end on that note.

http://searchsecurity.techtarget.com/news/2240039221/Black-Hat-2011-Dan-Kaminsky-reveals-network-security-research-topics

"Among the highlights were new vulnerabilities discovered using the peer-to-peer currency network BitCoin ... "

"BitCoin, a digital, virtual currency system, was the platform for some of Kaminsky’s new research. BitCoin is a payment system that charges a low cost per transaction. Each transaction is digitally signed and broadcast, supposedly anonymously, over a peer-to-peer network. Kaminsky announced a new tool called BlitCoin that unmasks one or both ends of a BitCoin transaction."

Ultimately, I think we may start to see more software created by P2P/hacktivist groups like Anonymous and LulzSec – groups that may be difficult to sue because of their amorphous nature. Innovation by non-state networks is an important trend that I think will generate much value in the coming years. As for how to invest in these black market economies, that remains to be seen. It will likely involve a different approach than participating in publicly traded markets on official exchanges within the nation-state economy. The growing popularity of Bitcoin may be an early step in laying the foundation for such a system.
