On Judge Neo's show tonight, at 11:30 pm, I was lucky enough to catch a little bit about Bitcoin.

how long was it?

About 5 minutes:

That's from Nov 27th, 2011.

This was the same clip that was on my DVR from today's show.  I guess it was a re-run.

New Scientist, 17 January 2012 - Magazine issue 2847:

Bitcoin online currency gets new job in web security


Quote
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.

It's a brief but good discussion of several alternative uses of Bitcoin algorithm. Seems like Bitcoin is catching attention of academic researchers.

How to start a casino and lose money.

Running at a Loss.
It's been exactly six months since I opened the Bitcoin casino. When I started this thing, credibility was a real worry for me. I mean, I had none, and we opened it from Costa Rica, which doesn't really help. I committed to keeping a radical level of transparency, publishing all the card shoes and daily RTPs. But I thought I'd go a step further and share with you the actual balance sheet for what's happened so far.

The future of payment for legal services - The Bitcoin?

Steve Lombardi
2012-01-19


http://www.theiowaedict.com/business---competition/the-future-of-payment-for-legal-services---the-bitcoin/


Would you accept payment for legal services in bitcoin? Should you? What is a bitcoin?
...

Let's say a client offers payment for legal services in bitcoin. You accept his payment and make the transaction by transferring his bitcoin to your digital wallet. You then use it to buy something you need to run your practice that is sold on the Internet. But how do you account for the transaction for income tax purposes? That's the part I don't understand and so lawyers will be pretty hesitant to venture into using bitcoin.

Bitcoins: Currency of the Future?

2012-01-19

http://lawandict.blogspot.com/2012/01/bitcoins-currency-of-future.html

At the end of the show, I was curious whether the concept of bitcoins was just a product of the minds of the writers or was based on reality.
After googling “what is bitcoin”, about seven million results came up.

The point of this argument isn't particularly related to bitcoin - but like the previous 2 posts in this thread, shows that while the Good Wife bitcoin story might not have particularly appealed to most Good Wife fans - it seems to have put it on the radar of Law professionals.

Hearsay For Dummies: "The Good Wife" Episode "Bitcoin For Dummies" Badly Botches Hearsay Issue

I like "The Good Wife." I've written about it on this blog several times (see here, here, and here). I think that the show generally gets the law right more than most other legal shows. That certainly wasn't the case, though, with the show's most recent episode, "Bitcoin for Dummies," which contained the most egregious (non)application of the rule against hearsay that I've ever seen in a legal movie or TV show.

A rather glowing introductory article in ParisTech Review
(Paris Institute of Technology - "a research and higher education cluster of excellence, is composed of twelve French Grandes Ecoles (Engineering and Business Schools) that cover a sweeping spectrum in science, technology and management.
The high professor/students ratio, the wide range of scientific disciplines covered and the quality of research at ParisTech attract the best students and scientists.")

Bitcoin, a complementary currency Universal

Pierre Noizat
2012-01-20

http://www.paristechreview.com/2012/01/20/bitcoin-devise-complementaire-universelle/  (in French)

http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=fr&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&layout=2&eotf=1&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.paristechreview.com%2F2012%2F01%2F20%2Fbitcoin-devise-complementaire-universelle

The Web has revolutionized the sharing and knowledge production; bitcoin transforms the social consensus of money creation, paving the way for a new economic freedom.

The concluding paragraph is an interesting comparison to the W3C.
Perhaps the proposed 'Bitcoin Foundation' will evolve into something like that
(https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=49841.0)

Quote
By analogy, it is interesting to note that the governance of the World Wide Web is an organization governed by a non-profit - W3C - composed of 300 members among the largest companies in the high technology sector. Clearly, any support from government to a member of the W3C can be compensated by the other if it is not for the public interest. If this principle successfully managed to control an area where technology is new production methods and knowledge sharing, it is hoped that a similar organization may also supervise the technical protocol bitcoin. This would allow bitcoin to preserve its integrity and innovation potential to hazards of macroeconomic measures.

Bitcoins are created ex nihilo, pretty much in the same way as dollars are created when a commercial bank lends money to someone who is buying a house.

Actually, bitcoins are created according to a set of rules, themselves based upon the laws of math, logic and thermodynamics. As Stephen Hawking would say, the fact that such rules exist implies that bitcoins would exist. Bank loans exist at the whim of the banker.

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