From a US marketing firm for credit unions.

This is yet another commentator who seems to draw conclusions of where bitcoins are headed based on the recent price decline.

Seriously?  That article is a month old and has already been reported here.
It's ridiculous inflammatory title has also spent more of it's fair share in the google limelight and provided a source of junk material for lazy journalists to write copycat articles.

Krugman's Bitcoin Error

2011-09-10

http://presentcynosure.wordpress.com/2011/09/10/krugmans-bitcoin-error/

"Paul Krugman, the nobel prize winning economist, is not really interested in Bitcoin. The only reason he recently wrote about the new cryptocurrency in his New York Times blog is because some people have urged him to. "

Another idiot talks about Bitcoin as if it's history.
Opinions that something won't succeed are one thing - but Gurav Ghos is just making stuff up.
(Perhaps yet another journalist who copies from The Atlantic )

Good introductory article without any propaganda.

mostly good, but i had to pick out this particular part:

Quote
each bitcoin itself contains a record of who owned it

i assume newbies may be confused by this statement given the anonymity/privacy potential of the system.

It looks like Gaurav S Ghos accepts critical feedback, if anyone cares to help set the 1.3 billion Indians in the know.

Hearing entitled “Road Map to Sound Money: A Legislative Hearing on H.R. 1098 and Restoring the Dollar”

Domestic Monetary Policy and Technology

http://financialservices.house.gov/Calendar/EventSingle.aspx?EventID=258253



Dr Lawrence H.White mentions Bitcoins at 21Minutes in.

Quote
So removing legal tender status from US treasury coins and Federal reserve notes more generally would simply broaden the freedom to denominate debt contracts in whatever people want, not just dollars, not just gold, but they might want silver, they might want to say the debt is only discharged by cheques or wire transfers of dollars,
or it could be silver coins, or it could be units of foreign currency, claims denominated in consumer index bundles, or wholesale commodity bundles, (ah) or it could be Bitcoins.

I was a little surprised that Australia's Computer Reseller News (which produces a magazine of the same name) would report on some internet forum being hacked.
I guess they consider Bitcoin and related incidents to be noteworthy to their readers.
