The site mentioned in the article seems to be a relatively minor one and the claim dubious:
"world’s first poker site to offer players the chance to play poker using controversial virtual currency Bitcoin."
(although it might be the first poker site which also takes more traditional money to accept bitcoin)


- but the site carrying the article (cardplayer.com) is a well known poker-news site. (and magazine)

edit: it seems the article came via some syndication arrangement and is on other general media and poker media sites too.
e.g http://finance.yahoo.com/news/switchpoker-com-adds-controversial-virtual-110400254.html
so I guess this is a case of switchpoker having done some decent media work.

Well.. it's bitcoin exposure to the poker world anyway.

Here's their blog entry on bitcoin:

Whether you are interested in Bitcoin as an open source software project, peer-to-peer network, or decentralized virtual currency, insight into its many facets will help you make sounder decisions about implementing it. In this article (one of three parts) Dirk Merkel gives an overview of Bitcoin, discussing its characteristics as a peer-to-peer network and decentralized currency. He also explores motivations for contributing to the project or implementing it in online transaction systems, as well as some of the pitfalls of doing so.

Bitberries! Bitcoiner Uses Heat From Mining to Dry Strawberries

http://www.betabeat.com/2011/11/22/bitberries-bitcoiner-uses-heat-from-mining-to-dry-strawberries/

One Canadian bitcoiner has figured out how to make the wasted electricity produced by bitcoin mining slightly less wasteful by using it to dehydrate strawberries (organic ones!).

Will Bitcoin Kill the Dollar?

Allan Harris & Corey Conley
2011-11-23

http://nvate.com/2177/will-bitcoin-kill-the-dollar/


The concept of a global currency seems laughable. Even Europe, with its thousands of years of shared heritage and culture, can’t all agree on the Euro, and their banking crisis seems unlikely to win over the doubters. You might be surprised to learn, then, that there already is a global currency. The humble “Bitcoin.”

...

If it continues to grow in popularity and enters mainstream usage, it could prove to be extremely disruptive to current economic systems.

The Coming Collapse of Bitcoin?

But for all its limitations, bitcoin remains a major milestone in our transition from national currencies to global currencies. It also serves as a guiding light for transitioning from labor-intensive systems to automated systems.

The legend of bitcoin is far from over. In fact, it’s only beginning.

So it seems to me and my colleagues at USV that an alternative currency with roots in peer to peer networks and based on an algorithm that is transparent to everyone is an idea whose time has come.

Another assumptive headline.. this time in a WSJ blog.
It often seems journalists prefer to get their opinions from other journalists rather than investigating issues for themselves.

In fairness to the journos - sometimes the articles are half decent and it appears the headlines may be chosen by someone else (editors) for greater impact.

This is just another little meta-piece based on the recent Wired article.
