Bitcoin was brought up in a question during a recent Security Now episode.

http://twit.tv/sn298

Bitcoin combines money, the wrongest thing in the world, with software, the easiest thing in the world to get wrong.

not really "press", but probably a notable source:

bitcoin has surpassed Liberty Reserve in terms of google search volume:

Half of those searches for "Liberty Reserve" were probably by people trying to fund their MtGox account.

Not yet a press hit, but a potential one: Please vote for bitcoin to get on Fox's Freedom Watch.  Currently ranked 7th place with 3,164 votes, and need to get within the top 3 ranks (~7,500 votes) to be considered.  Official bitcoin.org/smf thread is here: Vote to get bitcoin on Fox's Freedom Watch for further discussion.  Really easy to vote.

Bitcoin got smashed by Leo in Macbreak Weekly.  Very depressing to hear. http://twit.tv/mbw245

On the other hand, Steve Gibson was excited again about Bitcoin in Security Now:  http://twit.tv/sn299  Go Steve!  You are Luke and Leo is the Emperor--don't feel tempted by the dark side!

Furthermore, Reuben's Legal paper/draft is the second most downloaded paper from SSRN in the past two months.  Very significant.  

His paper was also mentioned in this post on Marginal Revolution (although I'm sure others noticed this): http://marginalrevolution.com/marginalrevolution/2011/04/is-bitcoin-a-bubble.html  I've been out of the loop for several days.

nice mention in the springwise blog today
http://www.springwise.com/financial_services/bitcoin/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+springwise+%28Springwise%29

also mentioned in the article is a site called currencyfair www.currencyfair.com - would be great if a site like that included bitcoin. Have used something similar called transferwise (only euro-gbp) and it works great.
And quoting Springwise: http://www.blacklistednews.com/?news_id=13786
Maybe not that notable..

I would say that they were just talking in circles about different eCurrency systems and that they think they are used for money laundering (what is money laundering?) ... I mean, what is money laundering when money is REAL... was there ever such thing as "gold laundering" ?!

You can hear them talking about Bitcoin (actually just barely mentioning it at about the 40min mark) if you watch the video, the clock in the background says 12:06

At what point in the podcast does Leo smash bitcoin?

It is at 47:25. The host Leo seems to actually like Bitcoin (he was one of the hosts in that great Security Now show about Bitcoin.) Instead, he criticizes the cash/Bitcoin exchange markets which, he thinks, are mostly used for money laundering. Here is the actual quote (the context is within a segment of the episode where they are talking about alternative currency / money transfer sites like WebMoney, Liberty Reserve, and how they are used by crooks to sell illegal software and services):

Quote from: Leo Laporte from MacBreak Weekly http://twit.tv/mbw245
You know Bitcoin, which is very interesting, we did a whole show on Bitcoin at Security Now.
I think, really, because you can generate these Bitcoins on your Mac or any computer with spare cycles.
And then there is a a market for Bitcoin in cash.
And the only reason I could think of why that would be is because that's a great way to launder money, you know.

My response to Leo would be: Let's face it, the criteria (necessary and sufficient condition) of good money is ease of "laundering them". Design a perfect money system, design a perfect "money laundering" system. Their properties would converge.


The establishment by fighting "money laundering" is essentially fighting sound money.

Good money can be put in the laundry with your dirty clothes and wont get destroyed.

em3rgentOrdr, LOL, that too  Cheesy

BTW there are some flash drives which are being marketed that even if they go thru a washing machine they still works and no data is lost. I guess it makes bitcoin, stored on such pen drives, good money than.  Wink

Speaking of which (and I apologize for the off-topic post), anyone know where I can get the toughest USB memory stick available? Or maybe the most secure?

So is it in today's print edition?

I'd really love to see a scan or photo or something. Does anyone have access to US print media and can facilitate this?
