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.

you can listen to it or download the mp3 of it here: http://www.abc.net.au/triplej/hack/stories/s3347881.htm

if you just want to hear the 'bitcoin' sound bite, skip to about 2:40.

I've added the following to my Facebook profile:

"Banks have blocked finances to WikiLeaks. Donations are not illegal. Freedom of Speech is not yet illegal. Contact me if you want help donating to WikiLeaks."

This chinese article  looks like a spinoff from the cnet article on whether casascius coins are legal or not.
This strikes me as sheer journalistic speculation. No legal sources are cited.

I only managed to endure the first 3 minutes. Oooouch. It sure seems stupid people giggle a lot.

EDIT: this sure fits, too: "first they ignore you, then they laugh about you, then they fight you, then you win".

Can Casascius (Physical) Bitcoins Actually Spurn Legality?

Kit Dotson
2011-10-27

http://siliconangle.com/blog/2011/10/27/can-casascius-physical-bitcoins-actually-spurn-legality/

"The Casascius Bitcoin is just an interesting token of love connected to the Bitcoin market and has as little chance of running afoul of US law as much as any coin-like token redeemable for specific product or service might be."

Bitcoin Can't Be Free from the Powers That Be, Because It Rides on Rails That They Control

Wagner James Au
2011-10-27

http://nwn.blogs.com/nwn/2011/10/bitcoin-cant-be-free.html

Bitcoin, the innovative virtual currency, may be a good idea for many reasons, but as it's currently conceived, it cannot really be free from corporate and state control. That's my strong belief after recently talking to Bill Maurer, Professor of Anthropology and Law at UC Irvine, whose specialty is money.
...

"t's not that they could easily pull the plug on the whole thing," he tells me, "just that they could easily stop the cash-in, cash-out side of Bitcoin, and effectively stop the flow of value into the system."

There's an app for that.

With the Bubble Burst Has BitCoin Become the Currency it Strived to be?

2011-10-28

http://www.therefinedgeek.com.au/index.php/2011/10/28/with-the-bubble-burst-has-bitcoin-become-the-currency-it-strived-to-be/

"Thus the burst BitCoin bubble is something of a mixed bag. Whilst the increased liquidity and speculator free market is definitely a great help to BitCoin becoming a serious currency the continued price instability and loss of supporters negates those benefits completely."

17 Dot Com failures and their modern counterparts

2011-10-27
HARRISON WEBER

http://thenextweb.com/entrepreneur/2011/10/27/17-dot-com-failures-and-their-modern-counterparts/


Digital Currency

By now, everyone’s heard of Bitcoin, a peer to peer digital currency. From praise to criticism and security problems, there’s tons of buzz around the idea. What you may not know is that Bitcoin is a decentralized take on what Flooz (watch this commercial), Beenz and SpeedyBucks tried to accomplish 12 years earlier.

In 1999, digital currency was like a gift card without a store to back it’s value. In the end, the overall consumer reaction was “why?”
