Bitcoin was mentioned briefly twice in the paper edition of The Times today (7 December). The mentions were on pages 14 and 15 of the Raconteur supplement on the future of mobile payments.

The Raconteur supplements lean towards advertorial, and are only included with English editions of The Times. The supplement will soon be archived online here:

http://www.raconteurmedia.co.uk/ARCHIVE.htm

It's not much of a mention, and there is a typo (the highest Bitcoin exchange rate was given as $432 instead of $32), but it's the first time I've seen Bitcoin mentioned in the paper edition of a major daily newspaper.

And again right after that...

The public key serves as an address to which Bitcoins can be sent,"

(the address contains a hash of the public key, and a checksum of that hash, but not the public key itself, which is not disclosed until funds are sent away from that address.  I'm sure someone will correct me if I wrong here.)

You have it right but if ever I was interviewed by a member of the media and they said that, I wouldn't correct them.

Bitcoin is a product of the internet, and therefore bears an intimate relationship to level of
anonymity one is able to obtain therein. Functionally ineffective regulation directed at the
internet and its subsidiary technologies may continue into the foreseeable future. As it relates to
Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies generally, regulation should strive mediate the ongoing melding of
the internet and money as mediums of communication

There's an interview with me today (friday 2011.12.09) in the Norwegian business paper Dagens Næringsliv ("Business Today"), on page 24, about BitMinter.com and bitcoins in general. There's also a side article about Meze Grill. If you understand Norwegian you can buy a copy of today's paper at http://www.dn.no/avis/bestilling/dagens/eavis?execution=e1s1

This is a little late, but doesn't seem to have been reported here back in October.

Just one mention in this document, and it's a strange one.
What on earth do they mean by 'digital anonymous currency often double spent' ??
I hope this is just a mistake in the document and doesn't reflect the level of (mis)understanding that law enforcement types have about Bitcoin.

This Christmas, Forbes Magazine Suggests Bitcoin

http://getoffmyinternets.net/2011/12/11/this-christmas-forbes-magazine-suggests-bitcoin/



After promoting a five-month old Boycott of PayPal – the one that Regretsy and its members ignored — Greenberg closes with this gem:

For those who want an alternative, check out WePay, Skrill, Ukash… or the decentralized crypto-currency Bitcoin.

Ah, Skrill. Which prominently serves a list of the states in which it’s legal via a domain that doesn’t match its rebranded name. Or Ukash, whose most recent news entry (from six months ago) contains the phrase “DO NOT SEND UKASH.” Leaving Bitcoin which, like all decentralized peer-to-peer services, surely provides awesome customer service in a pinch.

Dwolla Will Unveil Paradigm Shift in Business on December 15th

Kit Dotson
2011-12-12


http://siliconangle.com/blog/2011/12/12/dwolla-will-unveil-paradigm-shift-in-business-on-december-15th/

For some time now, Dwolla has been hinting at an instant-transaction mechanics within their finance network. In March 2011, many thought that the service would be brining that with instant ACH bank-to-bank transfers with FiSync.

If the payment network company does come out with instant-transfer finance mechanisms it will bring about a revolution of rapid-liquidity for Bitcoin transactions.

It seems the above  article stems from an earlier piece Czech Position did on Rick Falkvinge, which includes the recent video of him at the Hard Rock Cafe (during the 2011 European bitcoin conference)
(sorry once again for the google-translated titles - Czech bitcoiners - please beat me to it next time!)

CZECH POSITION: Yes. But before we get on this topic, tell why you came to Prague.
Falkvinge: Is there a European conference Bitcoin , which aims to build a decentralized network, where it will be possible to carry out financial transactions and verify the new digital currency. The advent of the Internet means that the already mentioned mediators lose their power. In this case the bank. In the next ten to fifteen years, the banking industry collapse, just as is now crumbling record industry. Bitcoin technology has huge potential to change the future.

Brooklyn-based BitInstant, a startup that provides temporary credit in order to make Bitcoin transactions faster, has raised an undisclosed sum of seed funding from an angel investor.
...
And soon–maybe even this week–BitInstant will offer cast deposits at five major banks, instant PayPal withdrawals and will start serving Virwox.com and CyryptoXchange.com.

IT’S been described as the Amazon of acid and the E-bay of ecstasy– and it ships to New Zealand.
...
Bruce discovered Silk Road through internet research about Bitcoin, a new digital crypto-currency which makes the drug-market’s supposed anonymity possible.
...
Despite its draw-backs and unsecure future, where Bitcoin does succeed is its ability to allow seamless international transactions, and it has been hailed by libertarian supporters as a way to opt out of the traditional banking structure.

Last night there was an article on an Israeli Tv station Internet Magazine ( channel 10)  about "darknet"
Of course there was a short mention of bitcoin as a way to pay for "stuff" ( drugs/sex/human organs).
They even showed Meni's Bitcoin exchange.

I could put a link to the video but its in hebrew....
