Doug Casey (An American free market economist and financial author) mentions bitcoins again.
He's not fond of them.

Doug Casey: Debt, Doom, and Opportunity

20011-09-21
http://howestreet.com/2011/09/doug-casey-debt-doom-opportunity/

"It’s like the perceived value of Bitcoins, as we discussed a few weeks ago; they are just as abstract and without intrinsic value as paper money, but they are not paper money and are supposed to be inflation proof. That was enough to get people to see value in them. They are, to reference the old joke, trading sardines, not eating sardines."

Absolute poverty of strategy

Pratik Kanjilal

http://www.hindustantimes.com/Absolute-poverty-of-strategy/Article1-749404.aspx

"If governments and institutions continue to fumble and bungle in search of economic solutions, libertarian currencies like Bitcoin will look increasingly attractive. Traditional money has become an absolute nightmare.

Relatively speaking, I mean.

...as long as China doesn't shoot itself in the foot first.
China has been implementing a slow-motion GSW to the foot for decades, same as every developed nation.  (They learned the model from us.)

The Cost of Virtual Currency

Jake Perry
2011-09-26

http://mantlethought.org/content/cost-virtual-currency


'This summer has been bookended by two fairly significant events that have put the concept of virtual money squarely back on the table. The first was the hacking of a Bitcoin (an “experimental new digital currency that enables instant payments to anyone”) account in June, and now the soft launch of Google Wallet, Google’s new Android app that turns a phone into a wallet.'

Biggest national french newspaper (source:http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Presse_en_France) discusses the case between SAS Macaraja (Mt Gox) and CIC.

I added a translation of the article. There isn't yet an outcome. 
The case will be heard on 18 octobre 10AM at the "Tribunal de commerce de Créteil".

While the silver bitcoin thing is interesting - this author doesn't seem to understand that they're not actual bitcoins.
The article would have been much better if it was about the casascius coins.
By the time I saw this article - Erik Voorhees had already corrected him in the comments. Good to see the bitcoin media-watchdogs on the ball!

Taking a Look at Both Sides of Bitcoin

Francois Paget
2011-09-28


http://blogs.mcafee.com/mcafee-labs/taking-a-look-at-both-sides-of-bitcoin


If you want to read more about Bitcoin, I recommend Gavin Andresen’s (from acm.org) presentation: “Bitcoin, the World’s First Person-to-Person Digital Currency” and the Raulo white paper: “Optimal Pool Abuse Strategy.” Regarding the various Bitcoin attack vectors, the following Defcon-19 hacking conference white paper is a must-read: “Hacking the Global Economy with GPUs, or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Bitcoin.”

Never Trust A VPN Provider That Doesn't Accept Bitcoin

Rick Falkvinge
2011-09-27

http://falkvinge.net/2011/09/27/never-trust-a-vpn-provider-that-doesnt-accept-bitcoin/

This is interesting as a potential class of service for which Bitcoin is the preferred/only payment method, and therefore a driver for base Bitcoin demand.

Should Bitcoins Become Illegal Digital Currency?

Attorney Mike Young's Internet Lawyer Blog
2011-09-29

http://mikeyounglaw.com/internet-lawyer/bitcoin-digital-currency/


"Bitcoin digital currency differs from traditional currencies and has become an increasingly prominent method of payment in the world of internet commerce."

"Though no legislative efforts have yet been undertaken to restrict or ban the usage of Bitcoin digital currency, the United States will perhaps soon see efforts made to stop illegal drug trafficking through placing impediments on the usage of Bitcoin digital currency."

They used very weak reasoning, based on Chuck Schumer's rant about Silk Road.  Definitely a plausible scenario, but they give no new evidence for it.

Who keeps your secrets: Some VPN anonymity providers sound noble; others are just icky

2011-09-23
http://www.itworld.com/security/206429/who-trust-your-secrets-some-vpn-anonymity-providers-sound-noble-others-are-just-icky



"AirVPN allows customers to sign up and pay for the service using digital Bitcoin reseller networks and to use the TOR VPN network when buying an account at Bitcoin, to keep from leaving a trail of IP addresses to the point at which you paid."



Same article also in pcworld.
