I call your sign and raise you a banner,



My friend Jaromil was at Occupy Amsterdam with that Smiley

Awesome shot, also because it also contains Max Keiser's buy silver campaign.

Louisiana Makes It Illegal To Use Cash For Secondhand Sales
from the the-other-side-of-the-bitcoin dept

http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20111019/17424316421/louisiana-makes-it-illegal-to-use-cash-secondhand-sales.shtml


"You can understand why law enforcement wants that, but just because law enforcement wants details of your private transactions, it doesn't mean you should be blocked from using cash. And people wonder why there was so much interest in Bitcoin (even if Bitcoin itself is rather flawed)."

Virtual currencies
The bursting of the Bitcoin bubble

2011-10-21

http://www.economist.com/blogs/babbage/2011/10/virtual-currencies

In May Rick Falkvinge, the founder of the Pirate Party in Sweden, famously blogged that he was converting all of his Swedish-crown savings to Bitcoins. Five months on, he tweeted that after “hoarding” Bitcoins until they hit $18 or so, he had moved to a “buy-and-sell pattern”. Mostly sell, it seems. “I currently don't hold any,” he admitted.

...

Those who have remained faithful to Bitcoin claim to be unfazed by such wild market swings. Volatility, they argue, is hardly surprising for a relatively inchoate, newfangled currency, especially against the backdrop of economic turmoil.
Bitcoin's stumble was not, then, entirely unanticipated. But it probably wasn't hoped for, either.

Here's a blog post I found by searching for "maple syrup bitcoins" ...  wtf?
You will understand my consternation when you read it, nothing to do with maple syrup.

This guy REALLY doesn't like banks.

I think it's the "casascius pos terminal": https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=46366.0

I don't think it's completely "developed".

Given that Adrianne Jeffries betabeat reports seem to get a bit of attention from other journalists - nice to see her follow up with something a bit more detailed about the price crash and mining profitability.

This piece should be of interest for both bit and name coin.

http://memeburn.com/2011/10/p2p-dns-taking-ownership-of-the-internet/

It's an interesting article on namecoin with quite a few pointers in the bitcoin direction  Grin

http://www.kitco.com/ind/Nadler/oct242011.html

Don’t look now but there is a major currency crash already under way. No, we have not suddenly turned into alarmist newsletter scribes here. The fiat currency Armageddon we are referring to is taking place in the same space that others have tried their hand in and failed previously; the creation of alternative money. Remember Beenz? Remember Flooz? Neither do we. Remember Bitcoin? You won’t, soon.

The recently invented “encrypted monetary unit” that is more complex that the design of the Mayan calendar was supposed to take the world by storm. Forget the greenback when you can swear by Bitcoin. Aha. Whereas the latest in alternative cash once traded as high as $33 (hey, near gold standard status!) it is now changing hands at under $3 and it might soon vanish altogether. Some have called it nothing short of a “screwball scheme to bypass the system.” You know; the “IRS and taxes” kind of system. So, do not be shocked if you get “called in” by Uncle Sam for a friendly audit, or to soon read that “Bitcoin…bit the dust.”

Bitcoin got a brief mention on Australia's national youth radio station TripleJ during the Hack half hour this afternoon.  They were talking about Wikileaks payment blockade and alternative means of donating.
