When the first issue of Bitcoin Magazine gets published, is this thread going to start filling up quickly with every article we have?  Cheesy

Another slashdotting for the wrong reasons...  and that title was clearly written before the much larger loss from Bitcoinica was reported.
Please explain your statement about the wrong reasons? I made the submission so I would be interested in knowing what the problem is.

The submission was made before Bitcoinica revealed what happened to them, that's true. I've asked them to add an update to the submission regarding Bitcoinica.

Oh.. only that I don't recall any positive stories recently in slashdot regarding bitcoin.  I'm not saying it shouldn't be reported though!

This is true and I don't like it either. I just don't think that there have been good news of similar magnitude recently. Once there is, I'm sure me or someone else will submit them also. We have seen lots of smaller positive news but I've been skeptical that submitting those would ever reach the front page of Slashdot, that's why I haven't submitted them.

I see a lot of potential stuff going on though, for example when the Bitcoin Magazine is finally published, that could work. Also when P2SH is finally enabled to Bitcoin protocol, that could work also. Hopefully there is a lot of other great things coming that I'm not yet aware of.

Regarding the Linode hack, the update I submitted has now been added to my earlier submission. It links to the Ars Technica article which covers the whole thing fairly well.

The good news is implicit. People can see, despite the stream of bad news stories on SlashDot, that Bitcoin keeps functioning.

Hackers Break Into Web Host Linode, Steal $228K in Bitcoins from Customers

Nicole Henderson
2012-03-02

http://www.thewhir.com/web-hosting-news/hackers-break-into-web-host-linode-steal-228k-in-bitcoins-from-customers

According to a thread on WebHostingTalk, the issue with the Linode management console could potentially put all VPS web hosts at risk. One user suggested hosts using Linode check their systems for reboots and change root passwords as soon as possible to prevent a security breach.

CLOUD WEB HOSTING FIRM Linode has had to confess to a security problem that has left some of its users out of pocket to the tune of over $220,000.
Reports about problems with the service sprung up yesterday, and Linode has already confirmed that it is at fault.

Yet Bitcoin keeps rolling.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

Thousands of Bitcoins stolen in a hack on Linode

Morgan Peck
2012-03-02

http://spectrum.ieee.org/tech-talk/computing/networks/thousands-of-bitcoins-stolen-in-a-hack-on-linode


Interestingly, the price of Bitcoin, which usually tumbles on this sort of news, has stayed right around $4.6 all day. In fact, that's where it's been for over a month now, with occasional spikes up over $5. While the hack is clearly the latest set back for Bitcoin, the mellow reaction from the market could indicate that the currency is becoming more resilient as businesses prove their willingness to absorb losses.

In my opinion - it's a source from 'within the community' - so I won't be referencing individual articles from it here. 
However, I'll be keeping an eye out and reporting when some other journalists/media outlets write followup pieces on Bitcoin Magazine articles or refer to the magazine.

There is a short article about bitcoin in the the march edition of  "The Linux Journal"
(no web link to it - subscriber only)

Nothing new , but the author  says this at the end:

"What about you? Do you think cryptocurrency has a future, or do you think it’s a geeky fad that will fade away? Send an e-mail with “CRYPTOCURRENCY” in the subject line to shawn@linuxjournal.com, and I’ll follow up with a Web article based on your feedback."

If anybody has the full article feel free to put it up.
