Seven pages(!) in today's Dagens Næringsliv, the largest financial newspaper in Norway.  The journalist has done good research and even visited the European Bitcoin conference in Prague.  Very good article.  Paper only, unfortunately.  One of five headlines on the front page.

Scan the pages, OCR, translate via Babblefish and get back to us Cheesy

Nice Article.  Noticed only at the end that its by S3052.  On one hand it's  accurate on the other hand.. he is a bit biased....
if it recruits a million users.. who cares Smiley

Sorry but I do care. As much as I agree with him on the future of bitcoin, I am sick of all that bla bla of "this high will be even bigger than the last high" bullshit.
If you want to express your enthusiasm, tell that it is *your* enthusiasm. If you have proof that some country is switching to bitcoin, tell the news but don't imply to know exactly what the course might be at some date. This article is not a notable source, sorry.

Thank you for the constructive feedback.

It is important to note that the analysis itself is in fact unbiased. It follows technical analysis and a multitude of indicators that are pointing to exactly that outcome.
As an analyst, I take a certain stance depending on the analysis and for people who have been following me since the beginning, they know that I also take a fully bearish stance if it is warranted.
Hence, while it may sound euphoric, the conclusion of recent price action and the unbiased technical analysis points to a bullish bias...

What I will do next time is to add some comments about the alternate scenario, something like what if ...

This one strikes me as a rehash of ramblings which have been proceeding on various forums for ages.
A missed opportunity to mention an innovative development which is tangential to 'porn'
- the release of 'pimpcoin', which appears to be bitcoin deposit cards with a sexy slant. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xk0CzSRRKfI)

Bitcoin, a Positive Step in Monetary Reform
 
Bitcoin has already shocked both the establishment and the blogosphere.
A privately controlled currency, completely independent from Government backing.
Bitcoin leads the way in many respects, but is ultimately flawed: it was built on false premises and does not address the key issue, interest.

An interesting commentary on arstechnica's recent claim that bitcoin was just a 'metacurrency'
This article argues the path from metacurrency to fully fledged currency.

Another quote from this blog: "There will never be enough Bitcoin to finance all possible trade and it will suffer from high exchange rates."
WTF ?? Is that a NOTABLE source ?

Bitcoin software finds new jobs in online security

Jacob Aron

Magazine issue 2847

http://www.newscientist.com/article/mg21328476.500-bitcoin-software-finds-new-jobs-in-online-security.html

IT HAS been a rocky year for Bitcoin, the online peer-to-peer currency, with the exchange rate soaring from a few cents to over $30 per coin before crashing after a string of thefts, hacks and other setbacks. Coins have since regained a value of around $5. But it is becoming clear that the software could prove at least as useful as the currency itself, underpinning a number of important new technologies.

First, it could be used as a form of "carbon dating" for digital information - something that would make electronic voting more secure. This is possible because of the way Bitcoin records transactions, says Jeremy Clark, a computer scientist at Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

An individual's bitcoins are registered to one or more addresses, which are alphanumeric sequences that serve as the user's identity on the P2P network. When a transaction takes ...

Cryptanalyst castrated by his government, 1952

Excerpt from online newsletter "The Daily Reckoning", January 12, 2012, see dailyreckoning.com for details. The original embedded "crypto-currency" link points to bitcoincharts.com

"Now, before readers disparage the “black market scourge” as merely a bunch of crims, cons and bloodsucking shysters lurking on in the shadows of civil society, allow us to consider the true nature of its participants. They could be anyone from a 4-year old lemonade vendor who decides to set up camp on mom and dad’s front lawn without the necessary government permit, to a peer-2-peer cyber crypto-currency currently enabling millions of dollars worth of transactions between freely-associating individuals around the world. And any of the brave, freedom-loving individuals in between. Simply, it consists of people who don’t hold guns to other people’s heads in order to conduct business with them."

Positive article from americanbanker.com featuring interviews from some bitcoin regulars.

http://www.americanbanker.com/issues/177_10/bitcoin-digital-currency-bank-risks-1045734-1.html?pg=2

Quote
The digital currency called Bitcoin was conceived as a rebellion against the banking system. But it may also present business opportunities for banks that can get comfortable with the risks.

"There is a big role potentially for banks, just as banks deal in all sorts of other currencies like Euros and yen and dollars," says Gavin Andreson.

"As long as Bitcoin is a couple thousand mathematicians playing with each other no one cares, but when real transactions start to go on, that raises the question of how we tax this," says Bruce Abramson, the intellectual-property advisory partner for Rimon Law Group Inc. of San Francisco.

"The anonymous transfer of significant wealth is obviously a money-laundering risk, and at some level we are aware of Bitcoin and other similar operations, and we are studying the mechanism behind Bitcoin," says Steve Hudak, a spokesman for the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network.

Yes I just saw this - a TED talk would be as good or better exposure than articles in Wired, considering the tech luminary audience and wide interest in the conference videos!
You have people like Eric Schmidt, Bill Gates, etc etc both speaking and attending these events - so it's quite a boost for credibility of a project or technology to be mentioned on a TED stage.

It's not the main TED though.  This is a TED university session.  Had one at my University once a year ago.  Thnk they're generally called TEDx, rather than TED.

Still a good thing though, just not Bill Gates level stuff.

When life gives you lemons, don’t make lemonade. Make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don’t want your damn lemons, what the hell am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life’s manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am? I’m the man who’s gonna burn your house down! With the lemons! I’m gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!
